    I'm in a US power phase right now, and I was hoping I could get some recommendations on good bands in that style (other than the obvious)I've been listening to a ton of Tad Morose and some Dark Empire, and would be interested in finding some more stylistically darker power metal.

    yeah, nevermore is petty sweet-but there's something about them that rubs the wrong way with me, can't figure it out. Sanctuary's cool, I really dig old-school stuff. Any more recommendations?

    Iced Earth
    Espicially Night of the Stormrider

    Not sure if this is obvious though.

    Now we just need someone to point out that Tad Morose aren't American.

    Mephisto (Ger)
    Oracle (the As Darkness Reigns one)
    Slauter Xstroyes
    Tyrant's Reign

    He's obviously referring to the US power/thrash sound.

    I know that. Ator and I were joking about this earlier. He predicted that there would be two dumbass posts - one recommending Iced Earth and one pointing out that Tad Morose were European (thus missing the point).

    Night of the Stormrider has a cool, cheesy dark fantasy vibe and some good tunes. To prevent further confusion, by "besides the obvious" I meant iced earth. And I do know Tad Morose are from Bolnas, Sweden (and all the cooler for it) As for nevermore, I'm not sure they bore me, I think the vocals might be the problem. They are cool, and they fit the music, but I prefer stuff a bit more soaring/epic, i.e. Urban Breed\m/

    keep 'em coming

    Do you like Demons & Wizards? You seem to like Iced Earth a lot.

    Yeah. I also enjoy Blind Guardian, so I guess that helps.

    But, I don't like Iced Earth's newer stuff much really. I prefer their stuff up to The Horror show.

    I actually prefer the remixes that Owens did with Something Wicked This Way Comes over the originals. But overall I enjoy Barlow better.
