Meduza  


Meduza was formed at the end of the nineties by guitarist Stefan Berg, eventually recording a demo and a promo CD, the latter featuring session vocals by Kristian Andren (Tad Morose, Memento Mori, and others). By 2001 Greek-born vocalist Apollow Papathanasio (also in the symphonic metal band Majesty) came in to complete the lineup, and thus far two albums have been released. Their style is best described as melodic power metal with some classical tendencies, topped with powerful, throaty vocals that for some reason bring David Coverdale to mind (probably not the most accurate vocal description there, but there you go). There is a clear nod to early Crimson Glory, as the guitars often have that faint Middle Eastern feel that was a trademark of CG in their early days. The songwriting is quite good, the band managing to forge their own identity even though they really never stray far from the basic formula.
