    So, I just finally checked out Wintersun for the first time since I saw a few people talking about their guitarists... I actually really dig them, and I don't really like much power metal I've heard... so, what other bands are there out there that sound like this? Keep in mind I'm not really a power metal fan, so I'm looking for more of power metal/melodic death metal hybrid type bands...

    Ensiferum - almost the same thing.

    I get the same epic feeling from Dark Tranquillity's The Gallery, and both are the only albums with such a degree of beauty and poetry in my book, even though they're not really the same kind.

    You might want to check out Ensiferum's first two records, they are also great, a bit more upbeat in mood than Wintersun though, they'll make you want to run around and pillage stuff. :D

    edit:Jeff beat me to it.

    There really aren't very many at all...

    Ensiferum's "Iron", Equilibrium's "Sagas" are the two closest I can think of.

    Although just a little different in style, sounds to me like you need some Kalmah!

    Me too, until Mäenpää puts out Time!

    I think every hardware failure possible has happened to this man during the creation of Time... Not to mention that everything must be perfect and in its right place before he'd ever put it out :bah: :D

    The upcoming album's title laughs at each of us with irony.

    I've had many people compare my album to Wintersun.
    I think a couple of the tracks come close, but we share
    a similar style; Symphonic Neo-classical Black Metal.

    I mean, I love Arsis... but they have never struck me as remotely similar.

    Arsis and Wintersun sound absolutely nothing alike. One is tech death and the other is... well.. melodic progressive epic majestic metal. :lol:
