Titan Force - Winner/Loser (Shark) 1991
1. "Fields of Valor"
Melodic, muscular and somewhat progressive power metal with high, searing vocals that really make this album interesting. Of course, everyone knows that Hary Conklin of Jag Panzer fame is the vocalist here. Musically this band is much more melodic than Jag Panzer. Musically, the closest reference I can think of is early Queensryche, with some early-90's Fates Warning thrown in as well. I know it's almost cliché to compare a melodic metal band to Queensryche, but that really is the best comparison here. More contemporary comparisons might me Heir Apparent or possibly Siam.
