Their result for What Kind of 80s Metal Are You? ...

British New Wave of Heavy Metal

68% RAWK, 53% HAIR, 56% INTENSITY, 38% Wholesomeness and 27% EVIL!

You mean business.  You’ve studied your craft, appreciate harmonies in both the vocals and the guitar parts, and want to ROCK – you are the “British New Wave of Heavy Metal”!  You also have style, image, and intensity, but that compliments instead of distracts from the most important thing – the music.  You aren’t afraid to write 12 minute long epics based off classical literature, but you also mean to kick people’s heads in with your sound.  Long hair, leather, tight jeans, and morbid artwork are a big part of your vibe, but in the end you are here to play your guitar, bang your head, and leave with the hottest person in the audience.   All in a nights work.

 

Bands include:

Iron Maiden

Judas Priest

Diamondhead
