I haven't heard Eternity's End before now and yeah this is real good. New album's not on Bandcamp but the first one sounds fun as fuck so far.

Iuri Sanson being on the second one is definitely promising - the singer on this first one is good but sounds like a lot of other dudes, very similar to Thaurorod, Innerwish, any number of bands. Music rips though.

edit: Definitely digging the material with Sanson a lot.

This is like back when both Dragonforce and Hibria were worth a damn. Super nostalgic. I would've gone ape shit for this 10 years ago and it's still very good now.

Eternity's End is definitely the standout rec from this thread.

I also really enjoyed Judicator's The Last Emperor. Didn't think much of At the Expense of Humanity, however.

Eternity's End is indeed a high caliber band. The new album is pretty awesome stuff.

Best female fronted power/progressive has to be Divine Ascension...

I’m not a huge power metal guy, at all, but the new Rhapsody of Fire to my ears is one of the best I’ve heard in recent memory. It actually put me in a good mood driving which is almost impossible!

Checking out this Eternity's End album, and I'm really impressed with Iuri Sanson. He showed he had some chops with Hibria, but he's even better here. Those smooth, almost "crysalline" highs are amazing!

I dunno about "best," but this is a pretty cool song. I'll have to take a look.

The only one I've heard is their second album and yeah, was some pretty ripping stuff. It's basically the modern, more refined version of stuff like Pagan's Mind's more straightforward tracks.

The second is the clear best one but the other 2 are quality too.

I agree completely that the second album, Liberator, is their best. Last year's is close though.

Of course. It's such a neglected genre. People who enjoy it seem to be much more picky than death metal fans for example. It's hard to find high quality power metal bands whereas it's quite easy for me to find death metal that I like.

Are there any other bands similar to the NOBLE BEAST style? I like the aggressive, heavier side of power metal minus the keyboards and cheese factor. I think Noble Beast gets close to there with some of his vocal antics but the riffs bring it back around. It's some of the best stuff I've ever heard in that genre. Haven't stopped playing it. Too bad they only made one album.

You'd definitely enjoy Persuader:

Funny, I consider Noble Beast to be way cheesier than most of their less heavy, more keyboard-y genre peers.

The new Twisted Tower Dire that was just released today is probably going to going to get a decent amount of love from folks in this thread. Slightly more towards the epic heavy metal end of the PM spectrum, but it's really fun stuff: https://twistedtowerdire.bandcamp.com/a ... he-unknown
