Aegonia - The Forgotten Song
Thoughtful folk metal from Bulgaria with all vocals in English. This is a concept album based on a story I’m not familiar with. The clean vocals are nice and the extreme vocals are some of the least offensive I’ve ever heard — more like a husky whisper than anything Sesame Street. The singers have accents, but not egregious ones, and honestly the Dracula flavor of the accents kind of adds to the whole experience. A really strong debut album, IMO.

LEAH - The Quest
Enya meets Evanescence, more or less. Pretty cool vocal-driven symphonic folk metal that makes some interesting melodic and harmonic choices. Not afraid to go soft, and not afraid to bust out a rip-roaring guitar solo either. Vocals are all clean and lovely.

Iron Maiden - The Book Of Souls
The second-best album of the reunion era behind A Matter Of Life And Death.

Judas Priest- Nostradamus
I dig it. Sue me.

Iced Earth - Days Of Purgatory
Won this in a contest on the Power Zone board about 20 years ago and I don’t think I’ve ever made it past track 4. Still haven’t. Not my cup of tea.
