Tygers Of Pan Tang
In the May 1979 issue of Sounds magazine, the term ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal’ was used to describe the second wave of heavy metal bands that emerged in the late 1970s.
It was an era considered to be a major foundation stone for many metal genres. The pioneers of NWOBHM who have had a major influence with their musical style include Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Saxon, Diamond Head and…Tygers of Pan Tang.
In 1979 a band from Sudbury, Suffolk exploded onto the Rock Scene with their debut single "One of these Days" Trespass was born...
"This band meld early Trouble to Budgie and Atomic Rooster. It's a late '70s riff rage.... While their sound is a little more organically doom-laden than Angel Witch circa 1980, somehow they've also captured the appeal that made the cult NWOBHM masters so popular in those formative days. The promise and potential is there for a big push forward." Malcolm Dome - Metal Hammer, March 2015.
Red Hawk Rising
In April 2016 Rich Wearz began song writing before asking fellow musician and friend Derin Adebiyi to write lyrics and put some vocals down. A few songs later Red Hawk Rising was formed and by November 16th 2016 after Tim Churchman (drums) and Steve Parsons (bass) joined, we performed our first live show at Alleycat Club on London’s infamous Denmark Street.
Originally formed in 1973 by the Troy brothers, Tino and Chris, Praying Mantis became one of THE most influential bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). The band is also one of a very small number of bands from that era to have remained a going concern over the intervening years and to still record and appear live regularly.
Electric Eel Shock
Electric Eel Shock are a glorious celebration of Classic Rock, Punk and Metal. A true power trio from the time before rock became fractured into a diverse multitude of sub-genres and we were all still one big happy Rock & Roll family.
*Though we are aware these guys aren't NWOBHM we are extremely excited to have Japanese band Electric Eel Shock as our surprise twist to the line up. You'll definitely love these guys if you are excited about the rest of the line up!*
Resurrected Late 2012, We are the original Sacrilege from the NWOBHM era from 1982-1987 before any other band took the same name and reformed in 2012.
Heavy Rock Band with crunching Black Sabbath style riffs and 80s metal screaming guitar shredding solos.
Our Full Stage show includes Pyros, smoke, lasers and more.
Take some 80's heavy metal, sprinkle on a handful of classic rock, a zest of 70's punk, with just a light twist of doom. Pour in a few pints of ale and Osmium Guillotine is the resulting mess.
REVERTED is a hard rock band formed in London. The group was founded by Tony Vega (vocals), Danny Ruiz (guitar), Ozzy Preciado (drums) and Luis Lopez (bass).
Watching the young, fresh new talent taking complete control of the stage and rocking out like it’s the only thing keeping her alive; you can’t help but be drawn to Tori Lamour. For those who haven’t seen this artist, this is no manufactured, artificial performer. Tori knows what she wants and is out to get it!
