That Dimhav album is an affront to humanity and all things metal. How can you get Daniel Heiman to sing on your album and underuse him so badly? If I could make an album with Daniel Heiman, it would most probably only consist of him going "woo ohh aahh" for about 80 minutes.

What do you guys make of Jag Panzer's Dissident Alliance album after all these years? Was listening to the whole thing earlier today which is maybe my second time to hear it in its entirety and I dunno, I'm liking some of these songs more. The obvious Pantera-isms of this track are not too shabby for example;

Spoiler: show


This, I feel is like a spiritual successor to Overkill's "Years of Decay";

Spoiler: show


I think the biggest disappointment (outside the glaring omission of the Tyrant) was that the style of this album was so far away from what folks had come to expect from them but once you get into the songs themselves, they're still solid or halfway there. "Last Dying Breath" is my favorite.

I still think it might be the worst example of 80s metal gone groove ever.

First time hearing that Jag Panzer, wow it's bad.

Yeah it seems underwhelming to me, though not bad.

Kind of a weird Stratovarius cover, but I can dig it.

I'll be as specific as I can: Dissident Alliance sounds like second rate Pantera with terrible vocals, which sound even more terrible when you factor in what a Jag Panzer is used to. Even years after getting over the initial disgust, they never managed to sound anything more than "generic to bad".

There are some moments when you can hear (because you know) elements of Mark's "regular" writing but overall? Man, no. It's just mediocre and whatever riffs or moments that could have, maybe with a different arrangement or in another context sound fine in any JP album, for me the vocals and general feel and vibe kill them dead. The re-recordings re-workings on Decade... did nothing for me personally. But Decade generally did nothing for me and I have all sorts of problems with that (see: bad re-recordings...), what Broderick did to the Crucifix solo is unforgivable...

Yeah pretty much^

Been listening to Dimhav. It's not what I wanted, I wanted Lost Horizon 2.0 (or Heed 2.0), but for a more understated vocal performance alongside prog metal, it's growing on me. Some infectious vocal lines in there.

Also found the "I Will Come For You (Terrible Version)" and it's just as amazing as that one above: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28R6b278Q5M

This one is physically painful for me, one of my favorite songs and it's been mauled beyond recognition.

If you want at least decent guitar battles, listen to lovebites. Dig the vocals, and the uptempo beat; but for the rest. Bwaargh

After a few listens, I'm convinced the new Iron Savior album is their best since Dark Assault. Extremely consistent. Every song is enjoyable, and the hooks are undeniable. Good luck getting the chorus of Roaring Thunder out of your head.

Amazing this band still has it after all this time.

I think it's the best one out of the last four records. It has more good songs on it than the other ones. Stand up and Fight and Heroes Ascending are my favourites.

I recently got caught up with them after years of not really paying much attention to the German stuff. Titancraft has some really good songs on it as well (the title track and Strike down the Tyranny are awesome).

It's kinda amazing how they still seem energetic and passionate after all these years. He's a really underappreciated vocalist. And it still sounds like he's using an ancient Line 6 Pod somewhere in his guitar rig hahaha.

Finally got Cloven Hoofs new album “Age Of Steel” and its wicked. Great trad metal songs that wear their influences on their sleeves but are so good you really don’t care, cause they’re so much better than those influences these days. Lee’s a master songwriter who’s got a fantastic singer in George Call (2 awesome albums old now) and he’s got the chops to take the songs to another level. So happy for Lee Payne who’s been battling away for over 40 years now with Cloven Hoof.

I bought it for like $9 on Amazon if you have that. The album is kick ass and has grown on me every spin.

And yeah Cloven Hoof is killer. New album is cool - I like the last one quite a bit better but the new one is loud and proud as fuck.

I was just listening to Armored Saint “Symbol of Salvation” and Skid Row “Slave To The Grind”, both great albums and I got to thinking about how there aren’t too many bands or albums that I can think of that are similar. They straddle the fence between heavy metal and heavy rock with big riffs, great vocals, fast songs, slow songs and all in all great productions. They’re heavy albums but have a commercial quality about them, kinda like the black album. Anybody got any recs that are similar to those 2 albums?

The most obvious is Graven Rite, which was basically an early version of Eternal Champion, sharing 3 members, and I'd say the music is pretty similar, if perhaps a bit more laid back/atmospheric. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwowvxzjoZE

Terminus is also quite similar, I'd say, with their album The Reaper's Spiral. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyOHhQef37w

Stormbringer from Illinois, while quite a bit older, have quite a similar sound to Eternal Champion as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vD0kmSqJIZU

And although they don't have much material, there's also Avalon Steel, whose Ascension EP is top-notch stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9Vhu4Ep3ik

That should do you to start with, I think.

EDIT: Totally forgot Tales of Medusa, who are also very similar and the best of the bunch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN7_qEwU4Zc

Been digging Allomancer a bunch recently. The riffs are good, but the real selling point for me is the vocals. Totally unique timbre, good aggression, match the music perfectly:

New album will soon be released by Sacred Outcry (Greece) who had released a very promising demo in 2003 and fell off the radar, with members doing other stuff.

Anyway, two lyric videos have been released and I think they are really good for their style, power metal with epic flourishes, you can hear something like a mix of Manowar and Iced Earth? Maybe some Kamelot. The vocals are top notch, as they are handled by Yannis Papadopoulos (Beast in Black, ex-Wardrum).
Highly recommended.

These old Halloween albums have some killer slices of melodic Scorpions-style heavy metal with some cool instrumental work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DANZ_AoOAM

Perfect to get in the mood for the coming season, in spite of how fucking shitty everything is.

Fuck yeah! Just pre-ordered my CD! One of the greatest epic/USPM albums of all time, finally getting its due! I'm almost creaming myself thinking of an actual CD copy in my hand. :drool:

Nice! At this point I don't think it would be a stretch for me to say that this is the best year for trad/USPM since at least 1991...never thought I'd be putting those words together, but hellz yeah! Shitty year otherwise for obvious reasons, but for trve metal, a total banger!

Okay this rules, especially the second track. Kind of like Battleroar if they had more balls. Consider me interested.

(Nightstryke sounds pretty sweet, not as hot on Kramp and Leadbreaker, Militia's pretty cool, already familiar with that album)

PS: Oh yeah Allomancer is decent too, I like it but I don't love it, but it seems like it might be a grower. Don't feel like quoting Oblarg after all the other quotes.

Canada (and Toronto specifically) is a gold mine for flashy modern traditional heavy metal/speed metal in the vein of Striker and Enforcer. Also, I presume you mean the Swedish Enforcer?

Anyways, check out these bands: Skull Fist, Axxion, Phantom, Cauldron, Midnight Malice, and Villain. All of these groups are from Toronto and are amazing. I'd also recommend Riot City, who shares a member with Traveler but is more of a Painkiller clone.

Also, if you like Traveler's more epic moments, maybe lean towards some of the USPM bands like Visigoth, Eternal Champion, and so on.

And that's just the first half of the highlights from the first half of the alphabet. Tune into the NWOTHM channel on YouTube for enough music in the genre to keep you going for years.

Yeah, it was the Swedish Enforcer. I got confused because I'm finding so much from Canada recently. Thanks for the recs as there are a few bands I haven't heard of yet so I will be checking them out when I get some free time this week.

I don't know if any cares or would find this method useful, but I've been taking recs from this thread and elsewhere, downloading the video from youtube, converting it to mp3, and dumping them all into the same folder so I can play them on shuffle. It's like a True Metal Radio station at this point and I'm at over 70 hours so far. It's a way to discover music more "naturally". I have been hearing so much great stuff; I had no idea that there was this much awesomeness out there beyond the well known stuff.

Oh yeah. I've been listening to trad metal for 15 years and I'm still discovering new things. If you haven't heard Enchanter, you should absolutely check out the Defenders of the Realm compilation. Mandatory USPM.

I do a 2-hour internet radio show every Monday night, and the first hour is normally focused on non-extreme metal. Last week I did my favorite songs from 1985, for example. Any ideas for this week? I can also post the link if anyone is interested.
