I personally am a fan of Gothic Metal, Power Metal and Symphonic Metal. but I wonder is there any bands in those three sub-genres you can reccoemend (I will accept traditional Metal bands eg: Saxon, Manowar, Iron Maiden).
My personal Favorite groups are
Power Metal: Blind Guardian, Helloween, Rhapsody of Fire
Gothic Metal: Moonspell, Atrocity, Theater of Tragedy.
Symphonic: Tristania, Leave's Eyes, Epica.

Pharaoh - The Longest Night/Bury the Light
Riot - Immortal Soul/Thundersteel
Enforcer - Into the Night/Diamonds
Grave Digger - Rheingold
Savage Circus - Dreamland Manor (it's pure Imaginations from the Other Side-era Blind Guardian worship)

I'll rec those. I'm not too crazy about Symphonic or Gothic metal. Aside from BG and a few USPM bands, I don't find myself going for power metal that much anymore either. Tastes change, I guess.

based on what you listen to, my recommendations are:
1. Tristania - Widow's weeds
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Wintersun - Time I
4. Ensiferum - Ensiferum (1st album)

You really should get in touch with the roots of those genres with the classics:
Led zep, uriah heep, king crimsom, sabbath, rainbow etc.

Metal is good for you!

I love Hammerfall, a Swedish power metal band. I actually first heard about them many years ago on this forum, in a thread about the music people listened to while playing WoW. So many paladins named Hammerfall that I got curious, and I've been listening to them since.

As far as I know, the town in Arathi is named after them? Samwise Didier, the art director at Blizz, does their album art.
