Here's a great obscure album from the 80's; the biggest hit off the album being "Break Down The Walls".

LENNY WOLF: Vocals
BRUCE GOWDY : Guitar
RICK WILSON : BassJ
JODY CORTEZ : Drums

Originally released in 1984, Burns Like a Star was the debut album from (mostly) American melodic hard rock/heavy metal band Stone Fury, which featured future Kingdom Come mainman Lenny Wolf and guitarist Bruce Gowdy (later of Unruly Child and World Trade).

Burns Like a Star is a fantastic example of what happens when the melodic rock and heavy metal styles met in the mid-80s. It has these great melodies and great hard rock rhythms, but there’s enough crunch in the guitar work and power in Wolf’s vocals (which even then practically channeled Robert Plant) that it could qualify as a metal album. It’s almost like a mashup of the Dio and Turner eras of Rainbow, if that makes any sense at all. “Break Down the Walls” and the title track are fantastic songs, but the whole album is really strong. It’s amazing that this band never broke big at the time.
