I saw Saxon in 2008 at Graspop and they were incredible. One of the best bands of the festival in my opinion, and bear in mind I'm talking about a festival that included Priest, Maiden, KISS, Testament, Obituary, Iced Earth... Definitely gotta check them out mate! Venom are good live too, but not amazing.

Judas Priest were the forerunners for the NWOBHM. Like you said Oz they were already established by the time the movement really took off.

Aye, the fathers of the movement perhaps? I've heard some people call Budgie NWOBHM which is amazing when you think that they were around before Priest!

Another NWOBHM band to check out: Bronz.

^It's the same way how Van Halen wasnt really hair metal, but once they were idolized and imitated in all the wrong ways, it took off, and now theyre just considered another one of those lady bands with catchy songs, albeit with that superguitar-man hybrid Eddie van Halen.

^Perfect analogy!

yeah i always liked van halen not van hagar haha, eddie is a pretty underrated guitar player

I wouldn't say that. I've always heard praise for Eddie whenever he's brought up. That and concern over him being a drunken dick by all accounts.

yeah your right i guess what i was trying to say was, if your making a list of great guitarists most of the time nobody thinks of eddie, but once somebody points out that hes not on there you make room for him, he just not a name that comes up much

I don't ever bring up Eddie because I'm not much of a VH fan. He is a great player though.
