Vhäldemar - Against All Kings

I was trying hard to think what Vhäldemar reminded me.

Dragonhammer - Obscurity

Half decent straightforward Italian Power Metal that’s not as frilly as the usual Italian fare, both in good and bad ways. Being straightforward as it is, it avoids sounding weak and silly, but as it’s rather primitive and poorly recorded, with a clean but not impressive mix, it’s hard for it to really antagonize the primacy of the better bands...
