New music genre -- NWOBHM

Not the “New Wave of British Heavy Metal”!! This is…[wait for it]…

The “New Wave of BANJO Heavy Metal” includes The Gravel Spreaders, Banjo Loco and probably many more.

These bands do country/bluegrass covers of metal (Iron Maiden/ Ozzy), etc.

The Gravel Spreaders version of Iron Maiden’s “Number of the Beast”

Banjo Loco’s version of Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper”

The Gravels Spreaders version of Ozzy’s “Crazy Train”

Banjo Loco’s version of George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

I can’t decide if this is the awesomest thing I’ve ever heard or the dumbest.

I’m leaning towards awesome.

What in the hell was that? It’s really strange. I kinda liked it, but I don’t much like the way the lyrics work so slow.

Ok, I’m really digging this cover of Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It all seems to go together much better.

Cool stuff, but nobody can top the original NWOBjHM masters: Hayseed Dixie.
