I did that too. Although I did include a couple of tracks from those bands at first but I kept on thinking of more awesome songs and it was just convenient to leave them off. :pnightsblood wrote:I purposefully left off Maiden, Leppard, and Venom, figuring newcomers would likely already know those bands anyway
The same goes for Priest and Motörhead who recorded their first albums in '74 & '75 respectively. Besides Motörhead are more rock and roll than metal.J.K. wrote:Black Axe: For me RAINBOW is THE representative of "70's Heavy Metal", and thus they can't be included is the NWOBHM because they were the fathers of Heavy Metal, and they played and rose before the Punk wave (and NWOBHM bands did take inspiration of the Punk wave and leave the approach of bands like RAINBOW with their folk rock and prog rock elements).
