    This is a nearly impossible question to answer but a few come right to mind: Sword, Titanic, Riot, DP, Sab, Priest.

    I consider them more power metal than traditional. It's the problem with tags today, I should have put Crystal Viper, but they also are tending to sound more like standard Euro-power metal.

    I didn't want to put the classic bands because we all know them by heart.

    It's a modern tag used to describe the sub-genre of heavy metal more akin to the sound of Judas Priest, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden (and the whole NWOBHM sometimes) specially towards the 80's.

    It's a classification that defies that a band can be tag along power metal (like Hammerfall), doom (like Candlemass), thrash (like Coroner), prog (like Dream Theater), etc.

    By my standards if you check bands like Metalucifer, Hammerheart, Wolf, White Wizzard more or less they are around that definition.

    Give it 30 years, all the bands we listen to today will be "traditional / classic metal" and Sabbath/Purple will be "proto metal. :p
