Some more power metal from the Balkan peninsula for you. Innerwish are a band from Greece who formed in 1994 under the name "Growing Order", and have undergone a lot of changes in lineup since then. Fun fact: their former vocalist became religious to the point of becoming a cenobite and playing in a christian rock group in the monastery (!). Well... I know a lot of musicians from early Soviet/Russian metal scene who later became religious (from traditional Orthodoxy to Jehova's Witnesses), but I never heard of any other metal musician who's in a monastery now :)

Speaking of music, it's typical "entry-level" melodic metal, nothing really original, but it's well produced and generally sounds nice. Would cernainly prefer this albums over a lot of other generic power metal albums. My personal favourites are tracks #4 (it's a cover, though...), #11, and especially #2:

"Travellers, all we are travellers in time,
Travellers, a trip to nowhere till we die,
Travellers, all we are travellers in time,
Cause life is short no matter how we try..."
