Burning Point  


Finland has produced no shortage of quality power metal acts over the years, with the trio Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, and Nightwish arguably leading the pack. Burning Point falls in the second division of such bands -- with 7 albums recorded from their 2001 debut to their 2016 effort The Blaze, the band doesn't match up in terms of popularity originality (and likely never will), yet they can still turn a head or two with their brand of typical Euro power metal mixed with a bit of melodicness and flair. Europeans have had an insatiable appetite for this kind of metal for decades now, and bands like Burning Point continue to fill that need.
