Wytch Hazel II: Sojourn
Amazing leads, very fitting vocals and a dreamy atmosphere. These guys emit a genuine retro/archaic feeling which is comparable to legends Pagan Altar, even though stylistically they are quite different. Their influences come from bands like Wishbone Ash and Thin Lizzy, and there are times where you might get a Kansas vibe as well. However, Wytch Hazel have their own identity which makes them one of the most successful hard rock bands today.

Fogalord A Legend to Believe in
Nice guitarwork, really good melodies but average songwriting make up for an enjoyable power metal album which feels longer than it actually is. These guys seem to know what they are doing, so provided they work on their songwriting and the vocalist improves dramatically his pronunciation, they might be able to offer something solid in the future.

Ancient Bards A New Dawn Ending
Decided to jam this one based on a review and some comments, and expected a huge epic journey. Instead, what I got was symphonic power metal with pop female vocals, some nice melodies, an overall happy atmosphere and an offering which is definitely the product of serious labor but doesn't do much for me personally. If Kamelot and Epica are two of your favorite bands, you will probably enjoy this one. For all the rest, you've been warned.

Saint Deamon In Shadows Lost From the Brave
These guys have a really good sense of melody but they lack in the songwriting department. So, even though I had a good time jamming this one, it left me with almost nothing in terms of riffs or memorable moments. Apart from that, this is some nice guitar-oriented power metal with good production which will keep you good company if you decide to jam something new instead of the power metal classics.

Winterstorm A Coming Storm
How can you go wrong when there is an eagle, a mountain and sea on the cover art? Well, you can but this is some fine mix of power metal and folk with emphasis on the power metal elements. The guitar playing is inspired by Kai Hansen and the vocals are very fitting of the music, never going over the top. All in all, post-2K power metal rarely gets that good.

Ashbury Eye Of The Stygian Witches
These guys don't play vintage rock, they are true '70s hard rock warriors. Those who are familiar with their amazing debut, already know what to expect; great twin guitar sound with brilliant harmonies and leads a la Wishbone Ash, evocative vocals, and an overall epic atmosphere. Ashbury needs much more love.

Evil-Lÿn Disciple of Steel
These guys know how to play traditional heavy metal with obvious influences but at the same time avoid the pitfall of sounding like a derivative. Great melodies, anthemic vocal lines, excellent twin guitars and a fitting production make up for an ass-kicking heavy metal LP.
