Machine Men  


Fans of all things Iron Maiden-like, this Finnish band formed in 1998, taking their name from the Bruce Dickinson song that came out that same year. The band themselves list Maiden and Queensryche as influences (the latter is less evident, though at times these guys do resemble 'Ryche in their early days), with the real resemblance being in the vocal arena -- Toni Parviainen is a dead ringer for Dickinson, and in fact Dickinson's recent solo works are also a good reference point for this band. These guys may need to reduce their reliance on sounding like their idols on future releases, but for now they've got a pretty good thing going, their songs not offering a lot of surprises but are well-constructed and enjoyable to listen to.
