If you’re one of those that demands precision in their music, take a pass on this one. If you’re open to checking out bands in their early stages and hearing music from decades ago offered up by musicians in an area where they were inventing the metal scene, then Diptheria’s To Wait For Fire is right up your alley.
One of the more unique power metal bands I’ve discovered over the past few years is Arrayan Path, hailing from Cyprus.
Italians bands have been releasing some excellent power metal albums in recent years, including my current favorite album of 2015. Looking to add to the list of great bands from their country is Crimson Wind, a relatively newer band who released their debut The Wings of Salvation in 2011, and are now coming out with their sophomore effort Last Poetry Line.
