"If metal is your medicine
We'll give you a dose
You'll never be the same!
Your eardrums will shatter
But it doesn't matter
You'll never feel the pain!"

This 5 song EP by Portland's Glacier may very well be the best example of U.S. traditional metal in existence. I know you are about to furiously pound away a comment citing Fifth Angel, Liege Lord, Crimson Glory, Manowar or Manilla Road and you may very well have a legitimate gripe but I implore you to give these guys a try. Each song is completely distinct and memorable enough to have you humming one of them in the shower a few days from now wondering why you're hoisting your loofa stick like a gleaming broadsword.

Get It
