    Concerto Moon
    Human Fortress
    Thy Majestie
    Stormlord
    Elvenking
    Mob Rules

    Thanks! :)

    I like the Human Fortress CD a lot. I've also got Thy Majestie and wasn't as impressed. Mob Rules is pretty good also.

    Another band I really like is StormWIND. Don't know much about Stormlord, but the other band plays good power metal.

    Concerto Moon are from Japan!

    @junniefromtheeast...ever heard them by any chance? Their on the same label as Rhapsody and toured with Stratovarius.

    Limb-Music don't offer MP3 samples either. :mad:

    There is an official site for Concerto Moon but it's in japanese. Does anyone know where I can download the Kanji font to read Japanese?

    Not that I can read Japanese, but I may be able to figure out where the hyperlinks are. They don't show up without the japanese font.

    I hear Conerto Moon are awesome.

    Just do a search for 'Concerto Moon' on www.audiogalaxy.com - there's at least 100 songs (entire, not samples) available for download.

    Then you can check sites like www.rockcover.de and www.cdcovers.cc for high quality scanned images of front, back, and inside cover art...voila! Instant album!

    The only two bands I actually have heard is Concerto Moon & Mob RUles (both on LMP, how bizarre!):eek:

    I have "From Father To Son" & "Rain Forest" from Concerto Moon.
    Aside from Concerto Moon's vocalist singing 50% in japanese...and in VERY bad english when he is trying to sing in english, it's a pretty good listen! There are a few catchy hooks and some pretty good guitar work! Fans of Yngwie & Adagio will probably love the band!

    I have both Mob Rules albums, and I love them!!!! (and Bear HATES them! :lol::lol::lol:) Yes, the singer can be an aquired taste, BUT I think they have some EXCELLENT songs!!!! especially off the last album "Temple Of two Suns"!!! Personally, I think they should be getting a little more attention....that's just my two cents!:rolleyes:

    I'll have to investigate the other bands further.....

    I've checked out a couple of the band mentioned, but I believe Elvenking is far and away the best of the lot! If anyone has not heard these guys yet, I seriously suggest picking up Heathenreel. It is a very unique blend of folk-power-speed-symphonic-and some black and death thrown in for good measure! Check out Seasonspeech... it's a song about the 4 seasons, and each season has it's own vocalist... very cool!
