Albania may be not as "non-metal" place as the whole Central Asia - there were more than 20 Albanian metal bands ever in existence, and at least 10 ones active today - but it's still very few even for a relatively small country. Here's the first Albanian metal release ever - "The Order Executors", recorded in 1993 by a band called Thunderway. Unfortunately, it was their only release - they couldn't find a proper audience for such kind of music in post-Hoxhaist Albania (they even had to record this album in the neighbouring Macedonia), and their vocalist himself wanted to do more pop-rock oriented stuff - so the band broke up in 1995. The album is amazing, though - excellent early-1990's heavy/power metal. Check out the track "Crimes With Prepensation", I think it's the best one on the whole album:

As for download links, you can get them here or here (I haven't ripped the album by myself, so I don't want to steal the others' work).
