I'm not hard to please when it comes to some epic power metal. Twisted Tower Dire have gone above and beyond the baseline by treating us to a classic styled metal record defined by variety and engaging songwriting, never once failing to deliver a kicker of a chorus. Wars in the Unknown is heavy metal comfort food. The band is based out of Washington D.C. and had formed in the early 90s out of a desire to keep traditional metal alive. 

Right from the get go you are indeed met with a punch to the gut of fully fueled metal in “The Thundering” with a definite nod to Judas Priest. “Light the Swords on Fire” snarls commandingly over some wildly cascading and corkscrewing riffs and everything feels slick and well constructed – heavy but catchy, simple lyrics that twine you up and get your fists pumping and devil horns raised. “A Howl in the Wind” and “These Ghosts Can Never Leave” are simply badass, stuff that moves you. 

I would definitely love to see them share a stage with Iron Maiden or Helloween! Some will say it's all been done already but no matter, I dig revelling in the warm comfort of traditional metal.
