Cauldron Born

On 1997's Born Of The Cauldron, Cauldron Born are very much rooted in the 80's tradition, with vague similarities to bands like Helstar, or perhaps a more uptempo Arch-era Fates Warning. There is also a noticeable progressive influence at work, with all four band members displaying an usually high degree of musicianship, particularly the wailing vocals of Danny White and the excellent classical-influenced guitar work of Howie Bentley. Having released some older demos under the title God Of Metal, the band released their second album, ... And Rome Shall Fall, in 2002.
