Ancient Kings Camelot
These guys are from Italy and play symphonic power metal. So, if bands like Rhapsody and Ancient Bards come to your mind, you know more or less what the music sounds like here. However, the songwriting isn't as engaging, which hurts the unoriginal content. Nevertheless, there are some good moments in the form of nice melodies, guitar leads/solos and vocal lines, which make Camelot an enjoyable listen.

Hell Bruizes Gasoline
This is quite interesting, as these guys are comfortably moving between punk, stoner and garage rock, meaning that there is enough variety to keep you interested. If only they manage to release a longer album and work on their songwriting a bit more, we might have something really good in the future.

Great Master Skull and Bones
At first, the vocals sounded a bit tame for the subject matter, but once the Running Wild influence wore off, I managed to enjoy this one very much. The band's music isn't as heavy as that of the originators of the genre, Running Wild, but that's a good thing because this way they managed to differentiate themselves and offer what is a really fun album with solid songwriting and a number of addictive melodies and hooks.

Elderwind The Colder The Night
Can't believe this one took me so long to check. Absolutely beautiful with an array of amazing melodies and a very natural feel.

Yoth Iria Under His Sway
Just the names on here are enough to raise expectations. The original bass player of Rotting Christ and Varathron, joins forces with Magus from Necromantia and the outcome is some pure '90s Greek black metal with nods to Necromantia and even modern Rotting Christ.

Pastor Unveil
A nice slab of stoner and doom metal with a cool '70s vibe (think of Fraction or demo Pentagram) which was fun while it lasted but it left me with absolutely nothing.

Nocturnalia Above Below Within
A great blend of blues and psychedelic rock with a sweet melancholic atmosphere and vocals that might bring to your mind Chris Cornell.
