Aedris is the debut album from Canada's Possessed Steel, a band that's been banging around for the last ten years or so. You know when a band has the word "steel" in their name, you're in for either power or epic metal and this band lays down the latter. Aedris' lyrics are fantasy-based with kings ("Bogs of Agathorn"), battles ("Assault of the Twilight Keep") and plenty of the supernatural ("Frost Lich", "Skeleton King"), so anyone into fantasy or sword and sorcery should find plenty to enjoy. Musically, Possessed Steel create a lot of space and atmosphere with huge riffs and powerful yet melancholic vocals, reminding me of Argus and Crom. There are no bad tracks on Aedris and songs like the aforementioned "Bogs of Agathorn" and "Frost Lich" are completely air guitar worthy. I've always got room for more epic/traditional metal and Possessed Steel is a band off to a great start.
