Various Artists Power of Metal: Symphonies of Steel
Released: 2001, Sanctuary Records
A compilation from Sanctuary records that is a great introduction for the Power Metal virgin. Thirteen tracks in all, from newer bands such as Kamelot and Stratovarious (or shall I say current) to a nod to old school featuring Celtic Frost and Kreator. Also represented are Helloween, Virgin Steele, Gamma Ray and Running Wild. Only thing is that I wouldn't consider Celtic Frost a power metal outfit, but it's damn good to hear 'Circle of the Tyrants' again. UUGGH!!!
