Let’s begin by pointing out that some of us have actually been around since the whole NWOBHM thing happened in the early 80’s. Groundbreaking bands like Angel Witch, Demon, Witchfynde and Grim Reaper released classic albums during the early part of the decade. Judas Priest and Maiden were building their legends to that point and released a string of metal classics through the middle of the decade. To my ear, Kantation’s sound and vibe is a glorious conglomeration of all of that.”
