    I have a 1.5 hour commute EACH WAY for my new job. I need some new music to listen to in my car. I was listening to Skyfire for about a month straight but I need something else now.

    Recommendations?

    I should specify, when I say "black metal," I mean the somewhat symphonic stuff. Not like late-80s black metal. Actually, fans of "true" black metal don't even like the stuff that I like. They says it's sell-out black metal or something.

    Or if you're just signing in, list some bands you like to give me some suggestions. I'll start:

    Stratovarius
    Dream Theater (before that POS Train of Thought album)
    Sonata Arctica
    DragonForce
    Angra
    Symphony X
    Twilighting
    Nightwish

    Dimmu Borgir
    Kovenant
    Cradle of Filth
    Children of Bodom
    Skyfire
    Graveworm

    Old Man's Child
    God Dethroned
    Vehemence
    Fragments of Unbecomeing
    Opeth

    and yer right I dont like most of the stuff you like but I do like alot of symphonic black metal. I think You'd really like Vehemence and Fragments though, pretty clean melodic death metal. not sure if yer into folk/pagan metal but you might like Ensiferium, Arkona (not the polish black metal band the Russian folk metal band, same name big difference), Einherjer, Equilibrium, Forefather or Orphaned Land. not not exactly what yer into but it all has a melodic death or symphonic black metal feel to it...or just outright viking.


    also, you said you don't like true black metal but check out Bathory. their older stuff is old school black metal but they have alot of really cool folky viking shit that sounds nothing like black metal. maybe d/l the disco and see what you like.

    Yeah, I forgot Opeth. I almost got to see them last year in Chicago but it was sold out :(

    I also like what I've heard from Enseferium (spelling).

    And solo guitarrists like Marty Friedman, Michael Angelo, Vai, Satch, etc. I respect Yngwie, but I don't dig his music that much.

    edit - wtf @ Fairyland :mamoru:

    Carpathian Forest
    Immortal
    Emperor
    Ensiferum
    Wintersun
    Amon Amarth

    1349
    Bathory
    Nattefrost
    Taake (for a black metal band they have some very melodic stuff)
    Marduk
    Craft

    Well I can suggest Sonata Arctica, Helloween, Cellador and Blind Guardian since you like Dragonforce. For black metal, it seems that all of the bases have been covered. You could also try Wintersun. Um...for black metal, you need Mayhem's De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas and some early Behemoth like Grom. try Akercocke as well.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    I thought Train of Thought was nu-metal BS with a few solos thrown in. I was disappointed. I was also kind of disappointed with Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From a Memory. It had some good parts, but it sounded like they rushed to make the album, and a lot of it was boring. Everything before that album is good, however.

    I fail to see how Darkthrone is progressive or melodic but :bigthumb: and I should have mentioned Satyricon, always been a big fan.

    Oops I thought he meant he was looking for bands from either the black metal or prog genre's.

    Are you saying my taste was shitty, or the guy who made the list on wiki?
