Pointless video post – ‘Stranger’ by Aillion

Aillion is a Belarusian traditional heavy metal band that I’ve had my eye on for some time now; they had released two EPs in 2009 and 2010 (this power ballad is from the second one), and have this year released a full-length album, which is available for free download on their website. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I am a big fan of free music; if their past output is any indication, it will be a pleasure to do so! The vocalist, Konstantin Dudarev, certainly has an excellent strong baritone which comes in handy on those power ballads, even if the band’s English-language numbers like this one can sound a little goofy. And they do have a bit of the power-thrash crunch that I appreciate, and with the band’s having done Vicious Crusade covers I am not surprised at all by this. It’s good stuff. Do give it a listen, gentle readers!
