    Good call on all of these; this is pretty close to what I would put too.

    Prog Metal - Dream Theater (with Vanden Plas and Threshold close behind)

    Power Metal - probably Nightwish and Helloween right now..... This would have been Angra, but the last couple albums have done very little for me.

    Overall - Both of the above, plus some 80's rock/metal like Extreme, Saigon Kick, and Lillian Axe.

    Favorite overall: Toto
    Favorite Prog: Circus Maximus

    A favorite power metal band doesn't really immediately pop to mind. They're usually fun to watch live but I get bored listening to it otherwise. So based on progpower performances, my favorite power metal band would be either Serenity, Sabaton or Primal Fear.

    It's more shock than anything. I actually met a ProgPower fan at a Springsteen concert once and remember thinking what are the odds? I wore my Pain of Salvation shirt as a joke, I didn't think anyone there would actually name them. So to see someone post about him in this thread reminds me of that.

    This is a fun thread. People are always listing favorite discs/discs-of-the-year and the like. But it get's tougher when you have to narrow it all down to one (or two...or three) bands that take the crown. Me? I'd have to add a few genres.

    Prog Rock - 1) Kansas 2) Spock's Beard 3) Subsignal

    Prog Metal - 1) Symphony X 2) Redemption 3) Withem (This was the toughest category to call...too many great bands here to narrow it to just three.)

    Power Metal - 1) Primal Fear 2) Kamelot 3) Mystic Prophecy (This was the second toughest call...again so many killer bands.)

    AOR/Melodic Hard Rock - 1) Find Me 2) Newman 3) Eden's Curse

    Trad Metal - 1) Hell (Comeback band of the century!) 2) Accept (Comeback band of the century deux!) 3) King Diamond (Coming back from triple bypass...yowzah!)

    Thrash Metal - 1) Evile 2) Savage Messiah 3) Testament

    So many other great bands.

    That's actually really cool! I love wearing "out of place" band tees (or just tees from lesser known bands) to bigger concerts just to see what other fans with diverse tastes that I might meet. It's cool when others do the same. I've met some interesting people and made some new friends that way.
