This week thrash metal, doom, and death metal converge on the basic building blocks of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Hear classic NWOBHM tracks by Tank, Venom, Saxon, Tygers of Pan Tang, Witchfinder General, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, and more, as they inspired later interpretations by Kreator, Metallica, Megadeth, In Flames, Sodom, Cathedral, Slayer, Opted, and more. Where were you in 2023, when the dam continued to burst? Know your Roots!
Long live the NWOBHM! Read the bible of British metal: DENIM AND LEATHER: The Rise and Fall of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, by Michael Hann.
