Been enjoying a bit of US power metal this week.
Oh yes that is absolute classics right there
Entire album is amazing!
Yep, discovered this a few years back. Very good album.
Nothing wakes you up like a cup of Slayer in the morning.
Not exactly a new band but I finally picked up an Avantasia album (got a special edition containing Metal Opera I and II) after first seeing them back in either 2010 or 2011 at Wacken.
Gonna throw it out there and say as far as power metal goes these albums are a lot stronger than some of their more well known contemporaries
That it’s done badly and lo fi only makes it better
Really digging The Haunted recently
Love this band
Some great reccomendations in this thread
You cant go wrong when people are riding snails in a music video
apart from the growling bit, she has a great voice
Couple of new albums to check out from our friends in Sweden:
Soilwork - Verkligheten
Soen - Lotus
Both sensational albums.
Sometime in the past few months Google music has lost every album from soilwork between 2001 and 2007
Anyone going to Avantasia in may? I don’t think I’ve been to a concert/gig for 10 years, but I’m feeling it might be time.
