Hello there fellow metal enthusiasts! I'm after a simple thing yet somehow it eludes me. I love lord after stumbling upon their stuff about 4 years ago i now have most of the lord and dungeon cd's released. I love metal. Melodic metal power metal. i like heavy rock, i Like anything that's generally upbeat catchy has a few screamy vocals and isnt regurgitated crap. Where can i find more specifically are there more good local bands in the sydney/wollongong area? being kinda in the middle i'm happy to go to either location for a good show but i just need events and band to enjoy. Other than that what other bands do you like to listen to that have similar roots. I tend to listen to all sorts manowar, virgin steele, crystal viper, tyr to name a few i know each one of them is classed as something different but they all have that upbeat metal root which i love. Come-on metal heads share the love!
