    I guess smw aren't really metal... but they play with metal bands regularly, so they can probably pass on the list. Johnny "from the Dock" Farnham has to go though. ;)

    I need to hear more Ruins.
    I saw them as a support for someone a couple of years ago and was pretty impressed.

    I would like to add Nazxul to my list. Having listened to Iconoclast a lot recently, they are an incredibly under-rated band in my opinion. Truly world-class music.

    Well you can bet that any band that is on my Welkin booking agency I'm a big fan of, and those bands are:

    Be'lakor
    Empyrean
    Separatist
    Aeon of Horus
    Black Orchid
    Eye of the Enemy
    A State of Flux

    Aside from them-- Psycroptic, Ruins, Astriaal, Alarum, Voyager, Virgin Black, Truth Corroded, Daysend are all bands that I am big fans of.

    Sleepmakeswaves, Eleventh He Reaches London & Mushroom Giant are then a few not quite metal bands I love as well. :)

    I don't think I commented on it here, but it's interesting that on the metal obsession top australian releases, Eleventh He Reaches London doesn't even rate on the popular vote, but was scooping the top spots of the staff (and now mentioned by you, Tim). Might just be a lack-of-exposure thing, or possibly a categorisation issue. I haven't heard anything by them myself, though I'm quite intrigued now.
