The

Seems metal these days is dominated by "amelodic" metal. So let's throw out some of the more harmonious stuff, as well as some of the more melody-oriented. Some of my faves:

Stratovarius
Kamelot
Rhapsody of Fire
Amon Amarth
Scar Symmetry
Children of Bodom
Nightwish
Twilightning(RIP)

NEED MORE!



Please note that this is all in jest and yet also serious, why not group up some of the more melodic bands?

EDIT - What the hell happened to the title?
EDIT 2 - "The" would be a fantastic band name.

It sucks Twilightning fell apart, Delirium Veil is about as good as it gets in my opinion.

As for my recommendation, instead of listing a bunch of stuff I'll just mention the Russian band Ghosthill. To my ear, they're the most interesting power metal band of late.

Timeless Miracle is exceptional if you can get past the vocals. Equilibrium's album Sagas is also really good.

Edguy and Avantasia are kind of hit or miss, but when they hit they hit hard.
Edguy/Avantasia songs worth checking out: Theater of Salvation, Nailed to the Wheel, New Age Messiah, We Don't Need a Hero, The Pharaoh, The Seven Angels, Shelter From the Rain, States of Matter, and Wastelands.

If that's not enough melody for you then you're doing something wrong

Well, there's a The The. Not quite melodic metal though.

Anyway:

Mors Principium Est

Hoping for a new album late 2012 and that the new guitarists are able to fill some amazingly big shoes.
