It Was Metal

Kieran Dolan A Sound of Thunder should be the most popular band in metal. Consider me a new (but now lifelong) member of the Legion of Thunder. You guys are easily as good, if not better, than any NWOBHM band (yes, even Iron Maiden). Killer songs, great musicianship, and maybe the best vocals in all of rock and metal. Now excuse me while I listen to your entire back catalogue... Favorite track: Lifebringer.

Zachary Hanks The one Definitive anthem for Metal. Even references the Crossroads movie, and brings back memories of Brutal Legend's lore. Great album! Favorite track: It Was Metal.

simfers Loving this. Heavy/power metal with enough idiosyncracies to have its own identity without devolving into gimmick territory. Will absolutely be investigating their discography further. Favorite track: Obsidian & Gold (Desdinova Returns) (featuring Tony Carey).

Harris Schroff Kind of a no brainer grabbing this one, it's ASOT and obviously awesome. Favorite track: Phantom Flight (featuring Mark Tornillo).
