Liege Lord

Though not quite making the big time, Connecticut's Liege Lord forged a fine mid-level career in the late 80's, proving to be a fine representative of classic American 80's power metal. They formed in 1982 and received critical acclaim for their 1985 debut Freedom's Rise, first released on the low-budget Azra label before being picked up by the French label Black Dragon, significantly helping their cause overseas. Signing to Metal Blade, they released two more albums before hanging it up in 1990. They did reform for a few shows, including the famous Wacken Open Air festival, in 2000, and later a new version of the band came together in 2012 and has remained active since.
