Eldritch came to my attention a couple of years ago when they were selected to play at ProgPowerUSA in 2011. They are an Italian Power Metal band and essentially much unknown except to the underground PM scene. Eldritch are melodic, heavy and have actually been around for a while. They have a sound that is uniquely theirs, accessible, yet very much Metal. The 2007 album Blackenday was my introduction to the band, though they have released 8 albums so far in their existence.
Check out their song Silent Flame from Blackenday:
I hear the sound in a METAL way.
