U.D.O. is a German heavy metal band that was formed by the larger than life vocalist Udo Dirkschneider in 1987 after he left fellow German rock band Accept.

Ancient Curse is another German power metal band from Bremen and it has been around since 1985 although the musical output is low with The New Prophecy being only the third full CD although there have been several demos and EPs. I'm not sure why the recorded works are so little and it is actually..
This EP features four great tracks of NWOBHM inspired hard rock very much of the type associated with Diamond Head, Praying Mantis and Tokyo Blade.

Voici L'Homme is the third album by this fine French progressive/power metal band and comes some five years after The Modern Age, the album that saw the band definitely becoming the finished article but there is still debate amongst fans as to which album is the best, is it the debut or the second and..
Hailing from Madrid in Spain, Nightfear is a heavy metal band that came together in 2008 with Apocalypse being the bands third release. I have not heard either of the first two albums but Apocalypse shows a band delivering power metal in the traditional German/Scandinavian fashion, being drum and bass heavy with the usual fast..
