For me it's Nightwish. They're a Symphonic Power Metal band from Finland, and they have a pretty solid rock background with an opera singer on main vocals. I saw them in Seattle last year and they were amazing. I'll see if I can find a small sample.

Anyone else have a "must hear"?

This "Nightwish" intrigues me... I am a Power Metal junkie and any good recommendation gets me excited.

For me, however, there can only be ONE must hear metal band, and that is the self-proclaimed Kings of Metal, Manowar. Although they have been around for ages, they still produce awesome music.

At times, they seem a little over the top, but that is just their style. They even seem to make fun of themselves, but they always give their fans 100%. I once read a critics review that stated that their style of near self parady left two options: either they were making fun of themselves, which would be great, or they were totally serious, which would be even better.

To give you an idea, these guys held the record for world's loudest band for like a decade. The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal states that a true metal fan knows that a Manowar shirt and a pair of jeans are good for any occaision, whether formal, casual, or otherwise. They also rated them the band with the most fanatical fanbase *cough*... that's AHEAD of Rush, people. As far as I know, I believe that they are also the only metal band that can boast of narrative verse performed by Orson Wells. In other words, they are too cool.

If that doesn't so them justice, then I leave it to their lyrics to say it all:

"Other bands play, Manowar kills!" Twisted Evil

3-Death from above 1979, more rock n roll

Seattle underage bands(play alot of under 21 shows)
1-Kane Hodder, these guys rock
2-Schoolyard Heros, nice horror rock sound
3-BloodBrothers, punk rock fun

others

the Epoxies, new new wave
Blues Scholars, hippity hoppity


old school
Feederz(ever feel like killing your boss?), the title says it all
Gaye Bikers on Acid(Drill your own Hole), ditto

thats all for now,
Bret

Frontline Assembly is a pretty cool group, with Outcast and Mindphaser being my favorite tracks. Good to listen too when I'm in a techno mood.

KMFDM is also good for much the same reasons as Frontline Assembly.

Guttermouth, Rammstein, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly. Sheesh, I could go on and on. But I'll spare you. Smile

Gah! *clutches his heart with a look of pain in his eyes* Disturbed, Korn, System of a Down and Godsmack are NOT metal. Good bands and I REALLY like some of their stuff, but true metal is played by bands like Iced Earth, Iron Maiden, Hammerfall and Manowar. Look'em up.

I should mention a band that I stumbled across a few months back and simply can't get enough of... Amon Amarth. Norwegian death metal. Music About Vikings, by Vikings, for Vikings. They rock!

This is not my favorite band, but anyone who has not heard NWA but listens to rap should just die, and then shut up. the same for metal fans who haven't heard Blue Oyster Cult, and rockers who don't know Tom Petty or Steve Miller Band. You should know the beginnings of your music, preferably BEFORE you compare it to anything else.

oh, and anything by a hoarse german psycho makes me laugh, though I've been on an Irish binge lately.
