Let's start this thread and introduce each other to newer bands or bands that many may not have heard before. Lets go for newer bands or underground stuff. Or some older bands many may have passed over. STONEWALL - great new band from Italy. Thier first album just came out on My Graveyard Records. really solid disc too from start to finish. RULER - another My Graveyard Records release. Pretty good stuff as well. Another Italian band. DEXTER WARD - great band from Greece. I cannot praise this band enough. Pure high energy and catchy songs. Get this album now. for an old time classic.....WITCH CROSS - Hells Headbangers just rereleased a huge vinyl set and are working on the CD / DVD release for later this year. another old band who is actually still around and writing more power metalish stuff is SKANNERS. this isnt the old power metal band who influenced Gamma Ray. Another Italian band. here is a great song from thier latest one from last year...listen to the difference. one last one....great old metal / hard rock band from the 80's....still writing great stuff but more modern hard rock than metal.
