Not really familiar with the NWOBHM but have already listened to Raven's All for One (good album), Slayer's (UK) I want your life, Saxon's Strong Arm Metal, Tank's Blood and Honour (best NWOBHM album I have heard so far), self titled by Angel Witch, lightening to nations and borrowed time by Diamond head, Tygers of Pan tang Crazy Nights, first three albums by venom, and Head on by Samson. Any other albums from the NWOBHM that are worth checking out?

Satan, Court in the Act is probably my personal favorite. Lots of good stuff from that era, blitzkrieg, grim reaper, tygers of pan tang, cloven hoof, witchfynde etc etc...

Angel Witch
Witchfinder Genetal
Atomkraft
Avenger
Warfare
Jaguar
Wolf
Legend

This list on RYM might be helpful - although, its scope is actually wider than NWOBHM proper as it is pretty much about British heavy metal in general (thus including bands such as Sabbath, Priest, Motorhead or Ozzy), and goes all the way until 2000:

There are lots of good suggestions here, but frankly you should not really focus on albums when you are talking about the NWOBHM.  The cream of the crop is located on various singles and EPs.  I would suggest you listen to the following compilations to get a good overview:

The best single retrospective compilation is this:





Metal For Muthas and Metal For Muthas Volume II Cut Loud - the most influential comps - Volume I has fewer great tracks but is essential and Volume II is excellent - check out Trespass in particular:





Brute Force - One of the absolute best NWOBHM comps that is usually overlooked.  Check out the playlist here:



The are two BBC Friday Rock Show compilations that are also very good and mostly forgotten - Metal Explosion and The Friday Rock Show.  Lots of gems on these two including cuts by Sweet Savage, Xero, Black Axe, Trespass, Angel Witch, Praying Mantis and Samson.



I can't find the full album on youtube in a single file but here's Sweet Savage from The Friday Rock Show:




This is just a taste of the compilations and there are many more - 60 Minutes Plus, Roxsnax, Roxcalibur, Pure Overkill, New Electric Warriors, Lead Weight, Heavy Metal Heroes 1 & 2, Metal Maniaxe, Metallic Storm, etc...  

Enjoy!

Isn't there an old thread with an insane number of suggestions somewhere?

I'm going to recommend Girlschool

Check out Spartan Warrior, they are pretty damn good!



A unique band from that time that I found used on a blind buy, Shiva:

Shiva is awesome; good pick. I bring forward Tyrant (UK), and their anthology release.  


Saracen is another one of my absolute favorites.

NWOBHM is my favorite subgenre. As Witchfinder posted above, the best stuff is found on compilations, or demos, or EPs, and singles. A song here and there from all kinds of bands. There is so much great stuff. Bands who haven't been metioned yet:

Jameson Raid




Crucifixion




Traitors Gate




Wikkyd Vikker
