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.


Upcoming Events

IMPORTANT: Due to the COVID-19 restrictions and measurements that are enforced by governments across the world, several venues and festivals have cancelled their events. Before you choose to attend to any of the events below, make sure that they are actually going to happen.
