Daniel Dalley is an American metal guitarist and songwriter who's music and playing have a decidedly European style and vibe.
With influences ranging from King Diamond, Megadeth and Malmsteen to JS Bach and Jerry Goldsmith(horror-movie score composer), Dalley's music is both visual as well as heavy. What matters to him first and foremost though are "the songs" and creating an atmosphere with the music.
The music he creates of his band POWER is his purpose. Whether its the bombastic drive of the drums or the haunting interlude arrangements, POWER's music is sure to be appealing to the lovers of "Metal" looking for an inspired sonic journey.
Founded by guitarist and songwriter Daniel Dalley in 1994 POWER is inspired by the likes of Megadeth, King Diamond, Cacophony and cinematic horror movie film scores. POWER music is based around visual Apocalyptic lyrical themes driven by "in your face" pounding metal music with soaring vocals and guitars with occasional haunting keys. Vocals are handled by acclaimed metal singer Alan Tecchio known for his past work with the bands Watchtower and Hades (among others), as he offers some of his best and most inspired work to date on these new POWER recordings.
