Warthur
Though like its predecessor The Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2 contains a fair dose of cheese (such as the goofy - but fun - Dr Stein), it also provides the glittering crown jewel of the classic power metal pair of albums. That, of course, is the epic thirteen minute title track, which despite a few slightly repetitive sections is an impressive melding of power metal pomp and prog metal complexity, and boasts what might be Michael Kiske's greatest vocal performance ever. (Granted, he's yet another Bruce Dickinson impersonator in metal, but nobody will deny after listening to this one that he's got an incredible pair of lungs on him). If you liked the first, you'll like this one.
