161 Rhapsody of Fire Rhapsody of Fire

Boss band! Love the Dawn of Victory album.

When it comes to power metal they are the best

162 Battle Beast

I didn't expect new band to be so awesome, with rocking female vocals it's great old school metal with modern elements. Give a listen and you will not regret

Battle Beast are really underrated

New band from Finland, amazing band

163 Ugly Kid Joe
164 Eluveitie Eluveitie

Eluveitie is a folk metal band from Switzerland. They combine instruments like flutes, violins, hurry-gurdy with elements of the melodic death metal.

Try listening to this band. People seriously don't know about folk metal. Listening to this band was really a unique experience. I'm sure everyone will get hooked with this band.

Folk metal... People should listen this.. Eluveitie is awesome

I think Chrigel keeps spare band members in his beanie

173 Dir En Grey Dir En Grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

DIR EN GREY is awesome unique band. Great sound of 2 guitars (Kaoru & Die), fantastic drummer (Shinya) & bassist (Toshiya). Kyo's vocal range is amazing, he's being able to "howl, croon, emote cleanly, scream, shriek, growl, bellow, and make nearly inhuman sounds". I love the way they made a progress since they started.

If it's heavy metal then DIR EN GREY are the boss!... Listen to any of their songs... They produce only the best... No one can sing the way Kyo does!...

They are epic, their songs always carry a certain message, always warn that there are serious problems in the world and encourage us to face them. Absolutely amazing artists.

Such an awesome band, there best songs gotta be Savior though, if you want an awesome band you should look these guys up.

Sorry, but RA is hardcore punk. Far from metal, I'm afraid. Amazing band though.
