Forgotten Tales

Quebec is hardly a power metal hotbed (the province is far more well-known for producing extreme death metal bands), but Forgotten Tales is a capable European-influenced band from the Canadian region, having formed in 1999 and with two albums under their belts to date. Sonia Pineault is one of the few female power metal vocalists making the rounds these days (Elisa Martin of Dark Moor and Fairyland is another) -- hers is a clear, forceful, high-pitched voice, giving the band a bit of distinctiveness in an overcrowded field. The music is standard speedy melodic Euro metal in the tradition of bands like Rhapsody Of Fire or Stratovarius, well performed and executed if not original. They have a way to go to move into the major leagues of power metal, but hardened Euro fans will like this band.
