Paragon  


Germany in particularly has no shortage of bands like Paragon. These guys have been motoring along, cranking out albums fairly regularly (eight, following a debut EP, since 1994), pretty much staying true to form since the beginning. The strongest influence seems to be Accept, along with some Manowar and standard Euro power metal stylings for good measure. Sure, this is a band that doesn't really take chances, content to ride the wave of true heavy metal, but they've got to be doing something right to prosper as long as they have, and granted they do the style justice.
