This has been done on other forums... so why not here!
 
1. Tyrant - Hold Back The Lightning
2. Hell - Save Us From Those Who Would Save Us
2. Marquis de Sade - Somewhere Up In The Mountains
4. Legend - From the Fjords
5. Bleak House - Rainbow Warrior
6. Dragonfly - Dragonfly
7. Jaguar - Back Street Woman
8. 220 Volt - 220 Volt
9. Holocaust - The Nightcomers
10. High Treason - Saturday Night Special
 
 
...you'll notice I've mixed up singles, EPs and albums - I'm not making a distinction, they're all obscure.

1. Hell - "Save Us From Those Who Would Save Us"
2. Satan - "Heads Will Roll"
3. Fugitive - "Don't Tell Me I'm Crazy"
4, Frenzy - "This Is The Last Time"
5. Bleak House - "Isandhlvana"
6. Jameson Raid - "Seven Days of Splendour"
7. Sledgehammer - "Living in Dreams"
9. Badge - "Silver Woman"
10. No Quarter - "Survivors"

Brats - "Tame Me (Insomniac)" <-- Strictly not NWOBHM, since they're not British (which is why they're not on the list - otherwise they'd be number 1), but they were part of the whole European metal movement of the late 70s and early 80s.

I don't know that one - I'll check it out.
 
In my opinion, NWoBHM isn't geographically locked in - it's an all-encompassing approach and attitude. Hence considering Trust, Krokus and Accept as NWoBHM bands is perfectly acceptable - not to mention Bow/Vow Wow and Loudness!

Tame Me is tasty stuff - surprisingly modern hard rock style intro for starters, nice Motorhead/Scorps-influenced power metal main course, interesting Priest-style half-time riff topped with Motorhead style pentatonics for dessert in the guitar solo.
Must be breakfast time... Rawks
...I wasn't quite as satisfied by the second piece - but good stuff, nonetheless.

I like the chorus of the second song. Very catchy.
