    I like a lot of classic rock and listen to that when I'm in the mood, but most of my listening is devoted to metal. My favorite types include prog and power and I lean towards epic symphonic stuff, especially if it's melodic with beautiful voices and poppy with catchy hooks.

    Some of my favorite bands right now (in no particular order):

    Symphony X
    Seventh Wonder
    Kamelot
    Nightwish

    Those last two my wife and I took our six year old girl to see in concert. She loved those shows!

    I'm also a big Beatles fan, and Led Zep are my fave of all time.

    I listen mostly to heavy but sometimes i listen to power and some symphonic, its rare to find symphonic, bands like rhapsody of fire master it, i started listening to metal when i first found emerald sword by rhapsody 1# power metal song ever, and after listening toneachbof their albums 816 times i decided its time to find new bands, i listened to power of the horde and someone said it is based of powerslave, so i went and listened to that and got hooked to maiden, shortly i found they released the book of souls just 1 month before that day and instantly bought the album, then i saw dragonforce and judas priest and some new bands like sleeping with sirens and crown the empire, oldschool metal will always be better than new metal

    Love Firewind.

    For a newcomer symphonic power metal band, check out Damnation Angels. Their debut album pushed all the right buttons for me, and the followup was pretty great, too.

    Nope, i dont think ive ever heard if firewind, got a recommended song to listen to first?

    And you should check out Decyfer Down, maybe not for everyone, theyre a christian rock band, but damn it theyre music is just too great, listen to rearrange or the other side of darkness both are great to start with IF youve never heard of them

    Although Iron Maiden is the love of my life (musically), I am listening only to a handful of Metal Bands. For example Blind Guardian, Nightwish and the old stuff from Sonata Arctica. Sometimes a little bit Metallica...
    My favourite Band after Maiden for example is Muse. Love them. And there is another Bruce in my life. Springsteen. Great person, great musician.
    I would cry some happy tears for a new System of a down Album, too.
    There's got to be just more to it than this or tell me why do we exist
    I'd like to think that when I die I'd get a chance another time
    And to return and live again, reincarnate, play the game
    Again and again and again and again...
