I don't hear enough about these guys. They were one of the first band with power metal vocals I really got into along with Helloween and Crimson Glory back when I was like 14 (A whole decade ago O__O). Their riffs are so awesome, I only wish I could tab out all of their songs in particular the ones from A Distant Thunder and Nosferatu. Love live speed metal!
Here's a sampling if you haven't heard these guys:
More Catchy for those of you who are less into speed metal.
If you don't like the vocals
Then the classic that started it all for me a decade:
I know they were pretty influential, but I don't really hear much about them besides causal mentions of them anymore (usually me lolol) even though they're still releasing material, its good but they're old material is fantastic. Any stories or favorite songs from these guys.
They sound like this now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEEYK7b3_so Came out this year
I love these guys, and James is a super nice guy as well.
