Ep. 12: Excavation - New Wave Of British Heavy Metal

Episode Summary

This week the lads hop across the pond to do some excavation of denim and leather… That’s right; it’s all about the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal! The NWOBM movement was filled with passionate bands that were poised to take over the world. Unfortunately, most of them didn’t make it to level of Iron Maiden, Saxon, or Def Leppard. Hopefully, we can help spread the word and sounds for those that didn’t.

Episode Notes

What’s this InObscuria thing? We’re a podcast that exhumes obscure Rock n' Punk n' Metal and puts them in one of 3 categories: the Lost, the Forgotten, or the Should Have Beens. This week we discuss the LOST. For such a small island, they sure had a lot of amazing bands that set the standards for what is known as heavy metal. From the music, to the fashion, to the attitude… 40-years ago these bands started an underground movement that would change hard rock and metal forever.
