New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM)

The new wave of British heavy metal (commonly abbreviated as NWOBHM) originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and achieved international attention by the early 1980s.

Although encompassing diverse mainstream and underground styles, the music of the NWOBHM is best remembered for drawing on the heavy metal of the 1970s and infusing it with the intensity of punk rock to produce fast and aggressive songs. The DIY attitude of the new metal bands led to the spread of raw-sounding, self-produced recordings and a proliferation of independent record labels.
