Many metal bands in the late 70's and early 80's originated from Britain and eventually became part of what is now called the "New Wave of British Heavy Metal".
But there were many other bands around at the very same time who also had a great deal in common with those bands - they struggled to release their records, played good metal music and profited from the fuss the NWOBHM made all over the world.
So here's a list of bands that probably would be considered NWOBHM - if they were British.
Still unfinished.
