Excalion

Based in the central Finnish town of Konnevesi, where they first formed in the year 2000, Excalion is a power metal band whose lineup at the time of their first album, Primal Exhale, comprised vocalist Jarmo Pääkkönen, guitarists Kimmo Hänninen and Tero Vaaja, keyboardist Jarmo "Jappe" Myllyvirta, bassist Timo Sahlberg, and drummer Henri Pirkkalainen. Shortly after the album's release through Sound Riot in 2005, Hänninen and Sahlberg exited, replaced by new guitarist Vesa Nupponen, while Vaaja shifted from guitar to bass. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

We need more music from Excalion! We need their albums Primal Tide and High Time on Pandora! Great stuff. And why aren't they touring the US? We need more power metal on tour!

This is what happens when you teach music in schools.

Many of these Finnish bands have extensive musical training from their schools. Notice how these bands have expert control over melody AND harmony. Plus they're pretty good at key changes as well as time changes. They know what they are doing musically.

"Band from Finland nobody's heard of" is starting to be a very desirable label, in my opinion.

On myspace, huh? I'll have to find them.

@ST33L: They probably look like that because maybe Finland's not as polluted as the U.S. is? I don't know; I'm just goofing around.
Report as inappropriate
These guys are awesome as hell. They are small-time enough to respond to myspace messages too! The lead guitarist even gave me pointers on what amps and effects pedals he uses. They look really young too. Like, REALLY young. It must be the Finnish wheather or something we aren't exposed to in the US(like some type of radiation lol), because despite them being in their late twenties-ear l y thirties, they look like they are twelve.

I like this cheese... I will add it to my cheesy power/ euro Heavy Metal collection.. . actually I think I will buy this album... all songs I heard so far are good... good band... aaaahhh good Finnish cheese

Uh, 'beginner power metal'? I wasn't aware that there were levels. If you don't like a band, that's fine, but you really don't have to brag about your 'refined' tastes. Also, Excalion has one other album, which is mentioned in the bio right there at the top of the page :-/

is waterlines their only album. because i want to get more but this is the only one i can find. also whoever said dragonforce has a high bar with powermetal hasnt listened to that much power metal. DF is a beginner power metal listener band. listen to some excalion, brainstorm, blind guardian, iced earth, and running wild and you will have heard power metal that is so far above Dragonforce its funny.

There must be something in the water in Finland or something. Really great music coming out of there, especially considering the relatively low population.. . . . .

I can't believe this was compared to Dragonforce. Excalion is a really good power metal band. I love listening to The Wingman.
