Soooo, I discovered a new band. Not new, per se, but new to me. Unleash the Archers is what happens when you mix D&D with Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Nightwish, Stratovarius & Dragonforce. They’re Canadian, which tells me just about all I need to know…I swear there’s something in the water up there that breeds musical talent. If you’re inclined, check them out: Unleash the Archers, The Wind That Shapes the Land
P.S. their cover of “Queen of the Ryche” puts the original to shame. Britney took Geoff Tate’s signature song away from him and I never want to hear anyone but her sing it ever again.
