Jacob's Dream  

Jacob's Dream captures the essence and spirit of classic 80's power metal as well as any band, then or now. Put together a vocalist who's two parts Tate and one part Dickenson, flowing guitar harmonies with just the right amount of power, and simple but effective songwriting, and the result is a trip down memory lane. There's nothing remotely contemporary about Jacob's Dream, but 80's metal purists could do far worse than this band, as all the elements that made that period of metal so special are here.
