Olympos Mons  


This Finnish band dates back to 2002, initially just the duo of singer Ian Highhill and guitarist Jari Sundström, eventually fleshed out into a proper band. This is textbook Euro power metal with a few progressive and symphonic touches here and there, it's clear these guys are influenced by the usual bands like early Helloween and such. It's all pretty familiar ground, though to their credit the production is tight and the musicianship is spot-on. Scandinavian power metal is hardly an original proposition these days, and Olympos Mons are basically one in a crowd -- certainly better than competent musicians, but a band for the (many) power metal completists only.
