EAC Rip | FLAC (Image) +CUE, LOG | 1.55 GB | Covers Included

This is by far the best New Wave Of British Heavy Metal collection on the market. It features some of the more known bands of the movement such as Diamond Head and Saxon (of course, not many NWOBHM bands could be referred to as "known"), as well as obscure acts such as Dark Star, Atomkraft, and Aragorn.

“Ambush” is the Tygers of Pan Tang’s latest offering, an eleven track opus which sees the band re-uniting with producer Chris Tsangarides. Whilst primarily a front runner of the NWOBHM scene, the band have fused their usual sound with a melodic rock influence to keep things fresh and interesting. This new album is their first with Chris Tsangarides since the “Spellbound” album in 1981.

There seems to be a real renaissance of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal sounding bands in the last few years. Groups such as Lady Beast, Midnight Malice and Air Raid are bringing old-school metal to the masses… and that is a great thing! From the Iron Maiden-like guitar harmonies on “Victim Of The Night”, to lead vocalist Arthur W Andersson‘s traditional metal (yet melodic) high-pitched delivery, to the Swedish band’s overall sound, Air Raid have delivered a record that will transport you to the early ’80s NWOBHM glory days. In particular, a track such as the instrumental “Flying Fortress”, with its amazing guitar melodies and solos, will take you back to Iron Maiden‘s classic Powerslave era in a heartbeat.

It's hard to believe, but 1991's Predator in Disguise was only the second full-length album from New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) veterans Praying Mantis. The band's first album was released a decade earlier, but soon after most of the band members went their separate ways before finally coming together in the early 90's, this time with former Iron Maiden member Dennis Stratton on vocals.

New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) band Dark Star released their self-titled debut in 1981, just as the scene was starting to heat up. The band's single "Lady of Mars" was included on the second Metal for Muthas album (the first helped launch Angel Witch and Iron Maiden, among others), and was poised to be a major player in the British metal scene. Sadly, success eluded the band, but the Dark Star debut remains an overlooked NWOBHM classic.

Entitled “Sanctuary” the CD is again very personal with plenty of great melodies and songs. The mix of lead and harmony guitar breaks and solos with great vocals and keyboards is fantastic with an overall songwriting on the highest levels all over. What we have here is a band that contains some very fine and experienced musicians who have put together a collection of songs that create a really classic album. Praying Mantis will forever be associated with the NWoBHM, but are in fact far more melodic.

Released in 2003, The Journey Goes On is the band's seventh studio album for metal act featuring dual vocalists, Dougie White (Rainbow/Malmsteen) & John Sloman (Lone Star/Gary Moore), the followup to 2000's 'Nowhere To Hide'. Includes guitarist Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) & founding members Chris & Tino Troy. The Journey Goes On is a first rate melodic rock album, and should especially appeal to fans of Demon, Ten, Cornerstone, Magnum, and John Payne-era Asia. If you're expecting a NWOBHM revival album though, you're going to be disappointed.

Perhaps one of the most underrated and overlooked melodic rock releases of the mid-80s was Tobruk’s “Wild On The Run”. Unfortunately, unless you were a hard rock aficionado back then, this one might have been released right under your nose without you ever hearing about it…

It's safe to assume that when Saxon's original lineup was formed in Barnsley, England back in 1977, the last thing that singer Biff Byford and guitarist Paul Quinn were thinking about was a 31st anniversary. Metal bands come and go, and it is hard enough to keep a band together for two or three years – let alone 31. But 2008, the year in which Saxon recorded their early 2009 release, Into the Labyrinth, did, in fact, mark the band's 31st anniversary – and the good news is that this 50-minute CD is quite faithful to the spirit of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal…
