    Great American Trad. Heavy Metal band that is inspired by the likes of Maiden, Dio , Priest and a horde of other awesome bands who hail from the 80's that are not near as well known . I just picked up their latest release 2011's Make It Dark which now makes my collection ( thou far) complete . Excellent soaring vocals, majestic guitars and an powerful driving rhythm section makes these well crafted gems favorites of mine from the Power Metal genre .

    Discography:

    1999 The Curse of Twisted Tower
    2001 The Isle of Hydra
    2003 Crest of the Martyrs
    2007 Netherworlds
    2011 Make It Dark

    I was introduced to these guys through a highly skilled lead player who happens to be a good friend of mine. He is semi obsessed with their "compositional skills" as he puts it and played their first two releases for me almost endlessly for what seemed like a week. A week of seemly endless beers one holiday season I might add :heheh:

    I am really glad he did because I love these CDs now and own them all as already stated . I am quite surprised that they are not more popular then just their cult following here in the US but then maybe staying in the underground is what has kept them so true to their roots of Trad. metal. Anyway I'm not complaining .They are a great band popular or not.




    EDIT: The new release is growing on me by the day

    I wouldn't be too embarrassed about that, Lou .They are a pretty obscure band,
    not well known at all.
