    hehehe... well.... i don't necessarily mean happy... it's hard to explain. Temporary Peace by Anathema is another song that fits the style i mean. It's weird.... like it's almost sad, but it's not really... haha i can't explain it really. Anyway thanx for the recs so far, have to check them out...

    Lawnmower Deth were on Earache records, who are still going very strong. You can buy their second and third records for low prices from earache.com.. fun band, even if they did go pop-punk on the last record ("Billy").

    Alas the classic "Ooh Crikey..." is only available on vinyl now.

    think, I know what you mean;

    Amorphis - Am Universum is an album that has a lot of nice songs, emotional, but not necessarily sad.
    I also recommend "Porcupine Tree", but they have nothing to do with metal.
    There's actually a lot of music, that excites emotions. Pain of salvation for example. But they're most of the time sad...check out "The flower kings: Stardust we are". Their music is very emotional, they're painting pictures of every colour. Their music descibes a meadow full of flowers as well as an upcoming storm, but most of the time, they're not explicitely sad. Another great swedish progressive rock band ist "Anekdoten". But they're very sad, they drowning in sorrow...

    By the way: Do you think that Katatonia are really so sad??? I like listening them, but I never came to some kind of dark mood by listening to their music. So far. Opposite, after Anekdotens "Vemod" i feel somehow...drowned...

    Thanks for this recommendation, just listened to a few mp3s, sounds very good :)

    They're not sad, the music has just this depressive touch or let's say hopelessness like on Discouraged ones for example which makes you feel like there's no way out, you get the point :)

    I think the style you're searching for is some rather melancholic music style ("Melancholy is the happiness to be sad":D ).
    I'm really into this style of music, almost give up metal to it actually.
    So here are some of my favourite non-metal musical bands:Mogwai, Arab STrap, Aereogramme, Godspeed you black emperor, slowdive, The Cure, Nick Drake, Steve von Till
    Scotland has very good bands in that mood

    I also can recommend Nick Drake! Most songs are just voice and acoustic guitar. Sometimes he has a scarse instrumentation. It's very nice!

    If you like Porcupine Tree: Check out the band "Sylvan" from Hamburg, Germany. I just got their new album and it's great. It can compete with "In absentia", but they are no PT-clones. Great vocalist! Great band!

    Also the old progressive rock dinosaur "Marillion" is still active and they still make good, "non-sad, non-dark beautiful songs". Their latest work is "Anoraknophobia" (what a shitty album title...) and it's really worth listening.

    Zwan is pretty upbeat but still beautiful. Mary Star of the Sea just came out this week, you should check them out.

    Yeah, it's kinda pop rock, but it rules.

    Nevermore - the Sorrowed Man. I think there is heaps of Nevermore shit that fits your bill but try that one first. It is extremely sad but really optimistic at the same time.... its kind of about how we all die and some don't want to... as far as i can tell.
