DEFENDER – Tales of the Unexpected (1985)

Band: Defender Release: Tales of the Unexpected (Demo) Genre: Heavy metal/Power metal Country: The Netherlands Year: 1985 Label: Independent Note: Tales of the Unexpected is a demo released by the Dutch band Defender. Their sound is like a perfect mix between the operatic and marching sounds of Iron Maiden and the heavy drowsiness of Black Sabbath, with the underground indieness of their own. Unlike most of the tracks on the demo, which sound raw and heavy, Tales of the Unexpected features the track ‘Passing By’ which has a very progressive (and before their time) thrash-metal-ballad-like sound.
