When you think of the great metal bands to emerge from Finland, it's usually bands like Children of Bodom and Nightwish that come to mind, but it's Tarot that has been carrying the true metal banner in Finland for more than 20 years now.
Originally released in 1988, Follow Me Into Madness was Tarot's second album. The band had a sound that could only be described as "heavy metal". They were clearly influenced by Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, and had a powerful yet melodic, fist in the air, metal sound similar to bands like Overdrive and Warlord. The band still suffered from poor production (and their cover artwork was downright amateur), but you can tell they were improving musically. Zachary Heitala's guitar work in particular is outstanding on this album. There are some incredible riffs and solos on display here.
