    Well I can't say that I listen to a lot these days, but classics (NWOBHM era) include:

    Motorhead-Ace of Spades, Bomber, Overkill, ST
    Saxon-Strong Arm of the Law, Wheels of Steel
    Priest-anything pre Turbo, preferably British Steel or earlier
    Angelwitch-Angelwitch
    Tygers of Pan Tang-Spellbound
    Accept-Restless & Wild, Breaker, ST
    Scorpions-anything up to and including Animal Magnetism, especially Uli
    Def Leppard-On Through the Night, High n Dry
    Ozzy-Blizzard and Diary

    It also depends what you call old school. There are a ton of bands that predate NWOBHM that also rock, like Purple, Sabbath, Uriah Heep, UFO, etc.

    Iron Maiden: all of it.
    Metallica pre black (I listen to post black also, but not as good, and it sure ain't old school metal)
    does Led Zeppelin count as metal?
    Guns N' Roses

    it still amazes me how many people "grow up". I remember my buddy saying back in '89 how He had to grow up now, stop listening to OZZY and start listening to the smooth jazz(Kenny G) stuff cause thats what adults with jobs listen to.
    I went to see a Motley crue tribute band last weekend supporting the Atomic Punks here in LA. THEY ROCKED!

    PS Still!

    Well I am 33 now and have been listening to metal since 1983. I still have my old vinyls, tapes and cd's all in perfect condition,(some tapes are bearing the burden of the long years though) but when I thought after your question, I have realised that I haven't been listening to many except the following for a long time:

    JUDAS PRIEST Point of Entry, Stained Class
    MANOWAR Sign of the Hammer
    OVERKILL Feel the Fire (My favourite Overkill album)
    MOTORHEAD Ace of Spades, Overnight Sensation
    BLACK SABBATH All of their work
    IRON MAIDEN Brave New World only (I have all of their albums till Powerslave but haven't been listening to them for ages!)

    That's about it. I still listen mostly to old music, but not metal. Like floyd, thin lizzy, led zeppelin, dire stratits, eagles, animals, nirvana. etc.. I can not comment about your friend 'growing up' and start listening to other types of music, but in my case, I don't find myself listening to old stuff frequently because I am actually full of it. I mean, it is great stuff, I'm not bored of it but after so many years of listening I very seldomly put in, say, # of the beast and hit run to the hills... I have listened to it thousand times and it doesn't just provide me with same enjoyment I used to get... On the other hand Dire Straits was a band whose albums I'd never pay and I wouldn't listen to them cause they weren't as heavy. As years passed by, I now greatly enjoy their work, and I have the money to spare to buy their CDs, that is another side of it. You don't at least have that type of limitation when you are 'grown up' [​IMG]

    Old school Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Ozzy, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, Black Sabbath- all great stuff.

    I don't ever want to "grow up."

    Master of Puppets, any Van Halen, Ozzy's Randy Rhodes Tribute, and Greatest Hits packages from Def Leppard, Poison, Skid Row, Cinderella, Motley Crue, and Dokken.

    Ahh, I miss the days of hearing real guitar solos complete with squealing harmonics and pick slides... Oh, and cowbells on the drum kits. [​IMG]

    I don't know Vardis, but thinking about that I remembered BLOODY SIX. Anybody remembers them? They released one album if I'm not wrong, then disappeared. Theyt had several good songs in that album, including "F*** the nation".

    Love the old school metal, I miss the big hair, death metal, kill everyone/everything days. I frequently play the older Metallica albums, really don't care for much of their stuff after the Black album. Once in a while I'll play:

    Metallica- First 4 Albums +Garage Days
    Slayer- South Or Heaven
    Skid Row
    Warrent
    Winger
    Fear No More
    Anthrax
    Ozzy
    Megadeath
    Napolm Death
    GWAR
    Iron Maiden
    AC/DC

    I'm sure I have more, but can't remember right now.

    A couple of more obscure (and not so obscure) early '80s bands:

    Raven: first album - production's a bit weak
    E.F. Band: Last Laugh is on You
    Girlschool: Hit & Run
    More: Warhead
    Riot: Fire Down Under (great disc, just remastered!)
    Venom: Welcome to Hell, Black Metal (a bit much these days, but my chiropractor was happy I was into them in "the day")
    Mercyful Fate: Melissa, Don't Break the Oath (how I forgot these guys I don't know. Still like the demos better than the albums though)
