Great Britain's "Tank" was part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal in the early 80's and another band that influence some big named bands.

They were actually born from more of the Punk scene as founding member Algy Ward was previously playing bass in legendary punk band "The Damned".  Their debut "Filth Hounds Of Hades" was more in the style of Motorhead, another band who has crossover bands from Punk and Metal.

"Tank" never achieve mainstream success, but had a strong enough following to resurrect the band after almost a decade and to continue doing shows and festivals around the world.  This is an early video of the band with one of their singles "Turn Your Head Around".
