Journalist Geoff Barton coined the term in a May issue of the British music newspaper Sounds to describe the emergence of new heavy metal bands in the mid to late s, during the period of punk rock 's decline and the dominance of new wave music. Although encompassing diverse mainstream and underground styles, the music of the NWOBHM is best remembered for drawing on the heavy metal of the s and infusing it with the intensity of punk rock to produce fast and aggressive songs.
The DIY attitude of the new metal bands led to the spread of raw-sounding, self-produced recordings and a proliferation of independent record labels. Song lyrics were usually about escapist themes such as mythology, Riot In N.Y. - D.J. Garry* - Demon Spirit , horror and the rock lifestyle.

The music, philosophy and lifestyle of heavy metal bands and fans were often panned by both left-wing critics and conservative public opinion,  described as senseless, ridiculous to the limit of self-parody,  and even dangerous for the young generation.
