DESCRIPTION

If you are serious about heavy metal, then you know what New Wave Of British Heavy Metal - commonly abbreviated as "NWOBHM" - is all about more than well. The movement that started in the United Kingdom at the end of the '70s, achieved its peak in the early '80s, but let's be honest, it's something that can't be stopped, tamed or limited. Yes, more than 3 decades later and NWOBHM is doing well. Maybe even better than ever! Skol Records is proud to present one of its most unique projects: Granbretan Invasion - A Tribute To NWOBHM! As the title suggests, the compilation is a tribute to the musical phenomenon that changed the history of music. The album includes covers of such legendary acts as DIAMOND HEAD, SAXON and RAVEN, but also interesting renditions of songs originally recorded by the underground heroes such as WITCHFINDER GENERAL, TYTAN, SAVAGE, SATANIC RITES, PERSIAN RISK, HOLOCAUST, TREDEGAR and BLACK AXE. What's even more interesting, the covers are performed by legendary acts such as AVENGER - who are one of the original NWOBHM acts, WITCH CROSS, who invited the original SAXON guitarist Graham Oliver to join them, or MARTYR and TWISTED TOWER DIRE, and some of the most interesting young heavy metal acts, including ENFORCER, CAULDRON, HELVETETS PORT, GATEKEEPER, IRONFLAME, HITTEN, SUBSTRATUM and SAVAGE MASTER.
