    So can anyone tell me a bit what kind of music it is and maybe suggest some songs to download?

    or possibly suggest the best one to start from these 3 albums:
    In Search Of Truth
    Solitude Dominance Tragedy
    The Dark Discovery

    Do they have more albums?

    (yes, I am too bored/lazy/out of time to go look on the site :D )

    In Search Of Truth is the best imo :)
    Try downloading "The Masterplan" and see if you like it.

    Ok, went to the site, got all the tracks that I found, in the beginning it sounded good, but then the singing started, nothing wrong with it really, but I have been past the Iron Maiden/Helloween/etc. phase for years and I sure as hell don't wanna go back.
    This would be something to listen to if non of my favorites were available, but right now I won't get their albums.

    Err... I think the singing is very far from Dickinson or Kiske. The closest similarity is that they all have "clean" vocals.

    Yes, they have very little in common with traditional power metal, much more darker and progressive...

    I totally agree Frightened Shadow and Demonspell.

    I find their sound rather fresh.

    I've only started listening to In Search and Solitude this past week so I don't fully know the cds yet.

    I also played them to my best friend this weekend, telling her Evergrey would also be at Wacken this year (she's coming with me) and she's totally converted!:D

    One more person and my job is done:lol:

    It's almost like hearing one of my friends.
    He's a BIG Blind Guardian / Iron Maiden fan...
    Bands I would never compare Evergrey to,
    cause I just think they're different... But when
    he heard Evergrey he was like "Iron Maiden is
    so much better....blabla...." ?!

    Oh well, we all have different tastes, and it
    makes the world a little more interesting :eek:)

    There's a difference between "having different tastes" and being totally and completely ignorant. :D

    I wouldn't match Everygrey with IM or most any of the power metal bands. Their sound is fresh, and Tom does a great job on the vocal end. He doesn't really scream like Bruce does he?

    But that's ok that Sala doesn't like our beloved Evergrey, it only means that much more for me!

    The unique thing about their music is that you cant really file it into any genre... It would thou easisest described as dark / progressivemetal.

    Ok, I gave them another try, same result, maybe I am just old, but they sound like so many other bands out there :confused:

    But, I may change my mind, depending on what Rehn will be doing in the band (hoping vocals, he kicked ass in Abyssos).

    And, btw, if you don't like my oppinion of them sounding like IM, too bad, that doesn't make me ignorant, it's my oppinion and like an asshole, everyone has one.

    And this makes me even less likely to like them, why would I want to be associated with moron fans like you?

    It's really intelligent to start mocking someone just cos their tastes are not like yours, makes the band look really appealing.

    At least I compared them to legends like IM/Helloween etc. you might have taken it as a compliment, I mean, I could have said they sound like nu-metal.

    Calm down, sir! I wasn't mocking your tastes! I was mocking your ridiculous comparison of Evergrey to Helloween!

    Exactly, but it will be very interesting to see what he is going to do with the band :)
