Proud - "Fire Breaks The Dawn" [1984]

Artist: Proud
Title: Fire Breaks the Dawn
Genre: Melodic Heavy Metal
Country: Sweden
Release date: 1984

Track List:
  1. Star Fighter
  2. Echoes From the Past
  3. United World
  4. No Losers
  5. Fire Breaks the Dawn
  6. Dark Lady Forest
  7. Crucified
  8. Star of the Masquerade
Another fine example of a mid-80s Swedish melodic metal band that released only one very good LP (and a cople of demos) and then vanished. Compared to Universe, they're definitely heavier (but not too much), and their sound is unquestionably in the traditional heavy metal territory. Despite being released by a major label (EMI), this album is quite rare and unknown to the majority of metal fans nowadays, which is a pity. My personal favourites: "Star Fighter", "Dark Lady Forest", "Star Of The Masquerade", and the title track.
