List of new wave of British heavy metal bands

The late 1970s–early 1980s period in the United Kingdom introduced a movement of young musicians, generally identified as the new wave of British heavy metal (often abbreviated as NWOBHM). The movement spawned more than a thousand hard rock and heavy metal bands from all over the UK, which were more or less forcibly identified as heavy metal acts.[1][2] Most of those bands did not survive past the mid-1980s and disbanded, but many reformed in the 2000s.[3]
