Vol.II cover

Metal For Muthas is the name given to a series of heavy metal compilations made during the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. The original compilation was Metal For Muthas (Volume I), released in February 1980. The compilation was a sampling of various better-known artists of the NWOBHM, primarily known for having some of the earliest recorded material by heavy metal legends Iron Maiden. The original Metal For Muthas album reached #12 on the British LP charts [1] and became the basis of a tour by the artists who contributed songs to the compilation. Iron Maiden, who headlined the tour, became largely intertwined with the history of Sanctuary Records (whose namesake was the similarly named Iron Maiden track on the compilation), now a major metal label.

Metal For Muthas was followed by a second similar compilation, Metal For Muthas Volume II. The compilation featured less notable artists of the NWOBHM but is also reminiscent of the DIY ethics of the late 1970s and early 1980s British heavy metal underground scene.

Also released in 1980 on EMI as part of the same series was a four-track compilation EP entitled Muthas Pride (12EMI5074).

The brand name was resurrected in the early 1990s by influential NWOBHM DJ Neal Kay, who produced a compilation entitled Metal For Muthas '92, featuring unsigned British hard rock acts. The album gained a Japan-only release on the Pony Canyon label (PCCY-00392).[1]
