Twisted Tower Dire

Twisted Tower Dire have been unabashedly waving the banner of true metal for almost a decade, formed back in 1995 in Virginia and releasing several singles and EPs as well as five full-length albums. Musically, the band truly is reliving the glory of 80's traditional metal (Iron Maiden being a prime influence, but far from the only one) but manage to do so without resorting to stale cloning of the good old days. This band is a solid choice for true metal purists.

Recent album: Wars In The Unknown, released on March 15, 2019.
