    Probably because Prof Black did so many albums in a short period of time and his voice isnt that great to begin with.

    lethal steel's album was the best of 2016 IMO, it's fairly simple but totally magical in a way so few trad albums are these days.

    he's greek btw lol

    I'm less interested in his vocals and more in-love with Aktor's weird mixture of Genesis, Devo and traditional heavy metal.

    Oh.

    [​IMG]

    My bad.
    What is it anyway that defines "retro"?
    Because Ironsword defenintely worship Manilla Road, but do they not count because they started in the 1990's?

    Yeah, sad news. :(

    Speaking of Brocas Helm (previous post before yours), I just learned that this exists.

    The three preview songs here are good. I was a fan of Luminous Eyes and I have a promo copy of this album.

    HAUNT fucking destroys and I'm ashamed that they didn't make my 2017 list. I had that demo on my turntable for several weeks before I changed it.

    I dont think Haunt's out yet is it? I felt a little disappointed in Robespierre - Garden of Hell. I need to try it again but I felt like they went sooo lo-fi trying to give it an old sound that they made it sound hollow.

    The entire album is pretty good. I'd better stop being lazy and actually write up a half-decent review of the promo version that I received.

    East of Sun is pretty good. It's going to be compared to Visigoth and Eternal Champion even though Gatekeeper is much more competent musically and they have a wider array of influences and more varied songs than either of those bands. Songs like "Ninefold Muse" and "Bell of Tarantia" are way more thoughtful than most new trad metal.

    I feel like some people here stupidly judged the very straightforward single that the band put out first and assumed the album would all sound exactly like that song. I forget who, but someone also said it sounded like a ripoff of some obscure Euro power metal band.
