Less known Power Metal bands

Post by TwilightEagle » Thu Apr 21, 2011 5:17 pm

If you know some Power/Melodic Metal bands, which you like, but almost no one knows about them, tell us about them. Here's some great bands, which almost no one knows. Especially Sunrise and Minuetum are sooo kick ass bands. I really recommend to check them.

Sunrise - http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Sunrise/118731
Minuetum - http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Minuetum/96403
Insania - http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Insania/3103
Silverlane - http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Silverlane/55713

you guys know KENZINER?! is pretty cool project rather than a real band, their first cd "timescape" is awesome and really stratovarius-ish.! check it out.

and also, I really dig Altaria´s records. they are from finland but they remain pretty much under the radar for some reason.

Virtuocity - Crucified I really enjoyed Secret Visions. Their second album, not so much.

Steel Seal - Lord Of The Flies

Keldian

Civiliation One

+bump for sunrise and excalion (are they well known? i dunno!)

Pardon if these ARE well known, I live in America where all power metal is lesser known :lol:
