Last Tribe  

Last Tribe was formed in the late nineties by promising guitarist Magnus Karlsson, and have three albums released to date. Their style is traditional melodic metal with neoclassical tendencies with noticeable similarities to Yngwie Malmsteen throughout, both in the songwriting and in Karlsson's very capable soloing, as well as several nods towards American hard rock of 80's. The only downside is a lack of identity, as there are many bands playing this sort of music in Europe and there is little here to differentiate Last Tribe from its comtemporaries, but their albums are solid, professional and expertly recorded. Melodic mainstream metal fans will surely want to add this band to their listening collection.
