Now this one took me by surprise as I thought the band must be some old NWOBHM outfit that had slipped through the net with Dawn Of The Serpent being a new re-issue of the band's album from back in the day; the sound of the band and the album cover simply scream NWOBHM. However,..
Some of you may recall Faith And Fire which was an American hard rock band which released the album Accelerator in 2002 and then just seemed to drift apart. I must admit that I do not remember the project but I really should have been aware of the band given the musicians involved. The group..
This one goes way back in time to well before NWOBHM and Angel Witch introduced vocalist Dave Tattum to the world.

Hammerhead was a NWOBHM band from Cumbria which was formed in the '70s out of the ashes of several local rock bands but the big break just never managed to come for them.

The sub-groups within rock..
I'm sure everyone out there is aware of the prolific American heavy metal band Manilla Road that was formed in 1977 by Mark Shelton (vocals/guitar) and Scott Park (bass guitar) and which went on to release 18 albums of hard rock to varying levels of success.
