Welcome to the online NWOBHM Encyclopedia! After several months of hard work it is finally here!

Still under heavy construction! We have covered more or less all bands until the first ones from letter "S". Don't look for entries after that point. There aren't any. We are adding them in alphabetical order as we go.

Do you wanna give a hand and be part of our small team? Make sure you read all about the encyclopedia and the contribute page first.
