It all started with this:
It's a cover album, full of Kiss, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and other covers (Blue Oyster Cult woo.) Then that led to me acquiring the Dark Saga CD, which has a track called 'I Died For You' which so far seems to be my favorite song from them.
Then I dug deeper, and there's an entire catalog of power metal dating back to 1991. I've got a lot of ground to cover here, and since I have a perosnality that demands I learn everything I can about something once I'm interested in it, I could be at this for a while. But it's better than listening to a Metallica album for the umpteenth time, I suppose. Onward and upwards and such.
