NWOBHM - The New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The sound that dominated the UK underground rock scene in the early 1980's. I gave rise to the likes of Iron Maiden and thousands of hopefuls who never made it past a few gigs and a self released single.

So how much do you know about the NWOBHM? Can you tell your Magnums from you Mama's Boys or you Dark Stars from your Dedringers? If you think you are metal enough, step up to the plate and have ago. But be warned, this is not going to be easy...
