Looking to go backwards

I've hit a wall. Modern day metal is starting to piss me off, so I want to start going backwards on the metal timeline. I've been a metalhead since I broke away from listening to my parents' music, (Sabbath, Metallica, Rush, Zeppelin, etc. You guys get the idea) so I started to like metal. Except Metal is either going metalcore (which is alright, but no good enough) or hard rock. I can't find good traditional heavy metal anymore. So can someone give me some pointers, not obvious stuff though, as I already have Painkiller, Number of the Beast, Reign in Blood, and i'm probably gonna get my hands on some good Sabbath soon. Just hope y'all will do me a favor.

Look up the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, try every band there out. You're bound to like some of them if you're into Maiden and Priest.

you can't go wrong with NWOBHM, you should also listen to some early priest( sad wings of destiny, sin after sin, stained class), I also highly recommend scorpions they are one of those bands that get better every time you hear them, oh and powerslave and peice of mind are way better than number of the beast
