Sortilege

Arguably one of the best of the French metal bands of the mid-80's, Sortilege mixed a strong Iron Maiden songwriting style with clear, quality vocals courtesy of Christian Augustin. Their overall sound wasn't radically different than other bands (French or otherwise) of the period, but what they did do, they did well. Though the original albums were all sung in French (as were practically all French metal albums back then), English-language versions of the two albums (Metamorphosis and Heroes Tears) were later released on Steamhammer Records. More recently, Axe Killer Records have re-released the albums, as well as a boxed set compilation.
