By the end of 1980, the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was in full swing and many of the landmark records by bands such as Diamond Head, Angel Witch, Saxon & Iron Maiden had been released. Still, hundreds of new, young hopefuls were honing their craft and paying their dues in the garages and clubs all over the UK. Fortunately, the movement featured numerous samplers that showcased some of the best young talent of the time but the very best compilation was actually a three way split by the name of Roksnax. All 12 tracks were recorded & mixed within 72 hours and features the best of NWOBHM. Hear the magic of Hollow Ground, the early speed metal of Saracen and the heroic Samurai, each song smokes! The reissue has a gatefold cover featuring recollections of the blitzkrieg recordings from each band and never seen before photos. Essential!
