Oracle  


This Floridian band formed in the late eighties as Prodigy, managing to release one album in 1993 following a name switch to Oracle, the album solidly rooted in 80's American power metal in mold of Liege Lord or early Queensryche (the latter due to William Wren's vocal similarity to Geoff Tate). Hardly a popular style of music at the time, particularly in the US (hence the release on a European label), As Darkness Reigns was nevertheless a fine album for the genre and worth seeking out. Brothers Kent and Brent Smedley later continued the project under the name Odyssey before calling it a day, and Brent later joined Iced Earth.
