Dragonhammer - Obscurity

Half decent straightforward Italian Power Metal that’s not as frilly as the usual Italian fare, both in good and bad ways.

Pänzer - Fatal Command

I found Panzer’s debut, “Send Them All to Hell” hopelessly banal, as in fact I have found most of the Tornillo fronted Accept material and Destruction’s material from the past decade. Panzer seemed to be a way for two of the guys that were dismissed from Accept, to get on a high profile band with another “Nuclear Blast” alumnus,...

Serenity - Lionheart

Serenity is an Austrian Power metal band that has been since the new millennium, but actively releasing in the past decade or so with a rather steady output of albums, which also featured female vocals as a standard in the past. They’ve nuanced and refined their sound and have gone from strength to strength, especially in the past few years.   They are...
