Firebreath is falling asleep on his job. Here are some bands that may have flown under your radar recently. Bullet- Full Pull: AC/DC clone. Cryptic Vision- Of Infinte Possibilities: Prog rock for the Spock's Beard/lighter Shadow Gallery fans. Fen- Of Losing Interest: Hard rock for the most part but they throw some nice prog chops in here and there. Knight Fury- Time to Rock: Old school metal (Maiden, CGlory, etc) with Dave Ellefson. I can't get past the production. Unwritten Pages- Fringe Kitchen: Innovative prog metal with John Macaluso on drums. More for the eclectic Pain of Salvation fan than the YJammers of yester year. Dragony- Legends: Raise your fucking sword. Fiakra- Invasion: ...And shove the metal sword up your ass. Emerald- Unleashed: I actually dig this one for the very cool Maiden influence. Stargate- Beyond Space and Time: Italian progpower hybrid (cool flamenco bits!). Vision Divine fans should check it out. Lahannya- Dystopia: Goth rock with chick vox. Cry for Eden- The 11th Hour: Warm 90's style prog metal with chick vox. Good stuff! The Order- 1986: All of you old bastards out there will enjoy this. I dig the vocals big time. Roll the windows down and cruise the strip. Eternal- Chapter 1: More quality old school hard rock with big hooks. Vanir- Onward Into Battle: I'm no folk metal expert, but this is quality (I'm a sucker for bagpipes). Blood of the Black Owl- Light the Fires!: Throw prog/black/folk/stoner into a blender and chew on some peyote in the spirit lodge. This disc will exhaust you. Stealing Axion- Moments: Heaviest Inside Out release ever. It's all over the place with nods towards Hevy Devy.
