08. Dawnbringer - Into The Liar of the Sun God
(Profound Lore Records)
Easily the greatest traditional metal album of the last couple years. (only last year's 17th Street giving it a run for its money) What makes this album so great are the enthralling concept (c'mon an assassin trying to kill the sun?), the killer guitar work and harmonies, and all the underlying influences wrapped in a NWOBHM blanket. Prog, Hard Rock, Thrash, Power its all here.
