Those of you who know of the “British New Wave of Metal” (BNWOHM) of the late 70s & early 80s will know it for it’s no-nonsense approach to melodic hard rock. No pretensions, just faster and harder than the legends they left in their dust. HEAVEN'S BASEMENT, another UK band that have been around for 5 years, remind me an awful lot of bands from the BNWOHM like UFO & Def Leppard when those bands first broke out.
Heaven’s Basement have been jumping back and forth across the Atlantic for the last couple of years and they dropped by the Whitehouse of Rock for an early morning session. We talked about the poutine, the lead singer who puked onstage at a show in Toronto and UK’s gift to the Toronto FC.
