    The NWOBHM was a scene, not a genre or time period. Judas Priest formed too early and never participated in it. Any similarity they have sound wise to the bands that did come from the scene was because of the massive influence they had on it. Also, Eddie Trunk is a fucking clown who impresses idiots with his expert act.

    Priest & Motorhead both pre date NWOBHM. They should be more aligned with the dawn of Heavy Metal, not a 'new wave'.

    FearCrusher and what's your point? Bands are banned from changing their style a bit throughout their 30+ year career? Differences between nwobhm and traditional heavy metal aren't that vast FYI. For example not like freakin pop and death metal differences if you having hard time to get it. If I am wrong so are the likes of Eddie Trunk and other heavy music critics and personalities. Don't you think that they know a lot more than some punks? As i said continue tagging Priest with this tag [2]

    truth_in_chains Ever heared that NWOBH started in 1979, and Priest started in 1970, so you're completly wrong. Stop tagging Priest and Motörhead with this tag!
