Well this is something I've thought about for a while. Looked at some sights and even talked with some people who were around when the scene was bright. It's a giant mixed bag. Ranging from mainstream success, the extreme metal blowout, the fact a lot of bands didn't get mainstream success, the suckiness of a lot of bands, and maybe the scene being saturated. There's a lot to go by here, but I'm pretty sure a lot of you have your own thoughts and opinions. What do you think killed the NWOBHM?
