Ancient Creation  


These Midwesterners are one of many bands playing unaduturated metal the way it used to be. Formed in 2003, they've got three releases to their credit as of this writing, with the middle album, 2007's Evolution Bound, reviewed here. The style here is best described as strongly 80's-based American traditional metal with some progressive touches (early Fates Warning is frequently named as a soundalike, except in the vocal department). The production is a bit rough, though not a detraction. Not the kind of band that sets the world on fire, but one could do far worse for nostalgic, 80's-inspired metal.
