This month I thought I’d review some new metal bands (at least they are for me) I have come across and are worth a mention.
Daydream XI have a new album out called The Grand Design. Mixing rock, hard rock and progressive rock with heavy metal and power metal influences, they originate from Brazil. https://soundcloud.com/daydream-xi Two tracks Watch Me Rise, Keeping the Dream Alive were chosen for my online Metal radio radiothunderuk.moonfruit.com
Immortal Guardian have a New Album Revelution Pt 1 mixed by legendary producer/engineer Roy Z (Judas Priest, Bruce Dickinson, Halford, Yngwie Malmsteen) it is power/progressive/melodic shred, check https://soundcloud.com/immortal-guardian this is their second album, they come from Austin USA.
Sister Sin New Album Black Lotus I cheated here as they are not new to me but I just love the Metal energy from this band, and their albums always seem to have a few gems and on this album there a few more, one being Chaos Royale https://soundcloud.com/puregrainaudio/sister-sin-chaos-royale along with Food for Worms, Au Revoir, Ruled by None.
Striker New Album City of Gold check https://soundcloud.com/napalmrecords/striker-city-of-gold Raw Metal, melodic high pitched vocals and racing guitars.
Burning Black Album Remission of Sin https://soundcloud.com/limb-music/burning-black-mercenary-of-war have created a gem: an exciting compromise of melody and power, they Hail from Italy and have been influenced by US Power Metal & 80’s Heavy Metal bands.
Red Circuit Album Haze of Nemesis a Prog Power Metal German band https://soundcloud.com/limb-music/sets/red-circuit-playlist Oceans Apart http://youtu.be/W3w0Agy_aT0 is the standout track for me, not on Soundcloud see link to you tube. Amanda Sommerville sings on a track called Worlds Collide.
Claymorean Album The Claymore –Lament of Victory Epic power metal band from Lazarevac, Serbia. https://soundcloud.com/claymorean/sets/claymore-lament-of-victory Female vocals mixed with male backing, reminds me a bit of Elvenking in their sound.
Arion Album Last of Us the outstanding track is Out of Ashes https://soundcloud.com/rankakustannus/arion-out-of-the-ashes Symphonic Power Metal from Helsinki
Crown of Glory album King for A Day a German Melodic/Power metal band influences sound like Edguy, http://youtu.be/aqsnvHallc8 the title track King For A Day gives a good indication of the album.
Sipario Power Metal Act Album Oblivion Symphonic Power Metal from Ital, fronted by two female singers, track Morpheus http://youtu.be/LOkSErs8PQA gives an example of there tracks.
Hell’s Guardian album Follow Your Fate from Italy Melodic Death Metal, Have taken to sound like Amaranthe, with Melodic Male, Female and Beast Vocals https://soundcloud.com/hellsguardian but it works for me cause the music is well done.
Viathyn album Cynosure This could possible become my New Band of the Year, they have a mixture of Power Metal, Progressive Metal with a bit of Folk Metal, Symphonic Metal thrown in. https://soundcloud.com/viathyn/the-coachman They are a Canadian Band and this is their second Release the first being The Peregrine Way.https://soundcloud.com/viathyn/blackened-woods
