Vanadium  


Vanadium was one of the earlier Italian metal bands to emerge in the early 80's. On A Race With The Devil, released in 1983, the music might best be described as the Italian version of Deep Purple, as the keyboards have that classic 70's feel, though at times there's a noticeable NWOBHM influence as well, which of course makes sense given the year of this album's release. The band recorded steadily throughout the 80's and even as late as 1995 they were alive, releasing their only Italian-language album that year, but eventually their reign came to an end.
