NWOBHM(-like) recommendations

Can you suggest me good NWOBHM like Prowler (Forgotten Angel era), Traitor's Gate, Virtue? Of course it's not necessary should be a band coming from this particular era or this particular country, just anything with similar sound and vocals would be fine.

Maybe Charger - Desperadoes is what you are looking for. Maybe...
To be honest I do not consider it to be an awesome song, it sounds a bit similar to Virtue, but it's not that good.

Oh, and how about JJ's Powerhouse - Running for the line?

The withdrawn single version of Crisis - Keep Fighting is very nwobhm sounding.

I guess a lot of bands would fit the description - the TRÖJAN lp was the first one that sprung to mind. Will think about this during the day...

Yes, Charger isn't that good and sounds kinda goofy. Also can remember of Trident but it's sounds like a much poorer version of Virtue.
I checked that JJ's Powerhouse single and it sounds really great, but just different from the bands mentioned above. But thanks, it's a really solid single nevertheless.

Yes, that Tröjan LP is great but somehow sounds different to me as well.

Those are good but they sound way more Swedish than Brittish :)

Ok some appreciations about this:

1. Charger definitely better than Virtue.
2. Trojan, killer lp.
3. J J's Powerhouse - Running for the line, Trident's Destiny and Reincarnates Take it or Leave it amongst the most memorable of the whole NWOBHM and big favorites of mine.

And my contribution:
