This album screams for 80's! Maybe more commercial sound on this release, heavy bass, rocking melodies and plenty of kick alongside with melodic singer. Great stuff.

Of The Sun + Moon - Sacred Blade
Very cool release mixing heavy and progressive metal with little bit of everything still keeping it amazingly well together. Quite extraordinary release in my opinion. I find this band able to create quite magical feeling at times. For fans of Judas Priest and Crimson Glory etc.

Crimson Glory - Crimson Glory
Very melodic yet staying heavy enought. This stuff is complex enought. Not your every-day heavy metal band here, these guys had talent! If youre not bothered by quite melodic edge and high pitched vocals I strongly suggest you check this out!

Metalized - SWORD
Pretty US-sounding late 80's heavy metal here.
Sound very heavy and melodic same time. If youre looking for album with heavy sound and catchy melodies in same package then here it is.

Reign of Terror - Wild Dogs
I'm bad categorizing albums like this. Its late 80's US-heavymetal. But at times quite damn speedy. It has weird tricks in sleeve, like rhythm changes and breaks, but I still wouldnt say it sounds any progressive. Propably technical heavy/speed or something.

This shit screams for 80's, a bit commercial sounding heavy/speedmetal with good female vocs. Great stuff to play at your car!

Delirious Nomad - Armored Saint
US heavymetal with slight touch of power perhaps? Midrange vocals of John Bush add nice touch. In my opinion Saint has some of the best slow/ballads ever plus very nice solos. R.I.P for the guitarist, great solos.
