Artiest(en): Cancelled: Metal Mirror (uk) at Negasonic;
Info: new wave of British heavy metal
Metal Mirror were formed in the county of Middlesex (UK) in 1979, at the height of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement. One year later, they released one of the most legendary 7" singles of the entire period, namely "Rock & Roll ain’t never gonna leave us".
Today everybody associates Metal Mirror with the N.W.O.B.H.M. movement but the band remembers it differently: “The thing was that we didn't know anything about it, we were just a bunch of guys that loved playing heavy metal.
The first we heard of it was when somebody showed us a music paper, and there's this N.W.O.B.H.M. written across it.
Our musical influences came from many bands. Gary Hitchens was mad about Van Halen, Paul Butterworth was into Led Zep and Judas Priest, Chris Haggerty worshiped Michael Schenker and I was and still am into AC/DC. Ian Thompson loved everything metal and hard rock.”
