    There would be a few more I could recommend, but they all have death vocals.

    Thanks.

    They may have elements of death vocals, but it should not be the driving vocal style like in traditional death metal or brutal thrash.

    Im familiar with the prog bands you mentioned, but not the thrash bands 'sept Testament and Coroner. Kreator, Sodom and Destruction...hmm. Maybe i'll give em a go.

    If you don't already know Evergrey...check out In Search of Truth and The Inner Circle in that order...tasty stuff!

    Try Jag Panzer...Mechanized Warfare, Thane to the Throne, Age of Mastery...power metal with tinges of prog.

    I'm a sucker for old Queensryche...pre-Empire.

    Rainbow-Rising...a must have for any human being.

    Late Yes, Rush, Genesis and Marillion get no love. But they rule anyway. So does UK

    Meh, I saw Kius supporting CoB (yeah I know, but Moonsorrow were supporting too so I had to go to that gig) and they really didn't strike me as anything special.

    I couldn't agree more on Yes and Rush. I only suggested early Yes because, in his list, he likes Crimson and Camel. I love old and new Yes, and Rush myself. I have everything both bands have ever done. The only post 70's Yes album I'm not fond of is their last one -Magnification. My top 2 Yes albums, funny enough, are Tales From Topographic Oceans, ('73) and Big Generator.('87) Trevor Rabin is so multitalented.
