^ I second all.

If "new" is post 00 I have a few tips too.

Manilla Road, actually an ooold band, but their present day albums haven't lost in quality at all.



Grand Magus, very good modern party music. Posers and wimps beware!



40 Watt Sun, sounds a bit like early 90s death/doom without growls.

Here are some of the ones I know I like:

Iron Maiden
Judas Preist
Anthrax
Black Sabbath
Blind Guardian
Helloween
Megadeth
Metallica
Ozzy
Motley Crue
Led Zeppelin
Pantera
Queensryche
Unisonic

And here are some of my favorite vocalists:

Bruce Dickinson
Ronnie James Dio
Rob Halford
Geoff Tate
Michael Kiske

There really isn't much aesthetic similarity between the self-proclaimed "metal for astronauts" of Rosetta and the whiskey-fueled vitriol of bands like Eyehategod, Noothgrush, and Acid Bath. While many modern bands have certainly taken the genre other places, there's still a distinguishable connection between the sounds of bands like Black Tusk, Bongripper, Kylesa, or Black Cobra and the origins and defining sounds of the genre. Much the same there is a discernible connection between the fringe doom sub-genres of funeral doom and death/doom bands like Catacombs and the traditional roots of doom metal. While there are connections between the texture-oriented sound of post-metal and bands like Neurosis and Isis, both of those bands are already on the edges of sludge and aren't ideal representations of the key aesthetics or sounds of the genre. It would be akin to saying Infectious Grooves are thrash metal because they sound similar to Suicidal Tendencies.

Not all of these are post 2000 bands but they may well be of interest to you. They aren't all strictly power metal either but should be close enough to your tastes to be worth a look. As for your one rule, how do you feel about the vocals on Pantera's Great Southern Trendkill album? You list them as a band you like but the vocals on that album are quite harsh. Do you mind that type of vocal performance or is that one you enjoy less?

Wuthering Heights
Manticora
Destiny's End
Evil Masquerade (their recent album was more hard rock than power metal but the first 4 albums they did were rather good IMO)
The Storyteller
Alteria
Kenziner
Heavenly
Requiem
Arthemis (apparently they have gone in a heavier direction recently but again, early albums are good power metal)
Celesty
Crescent Shield
Dionysus
Dream Evil
Kiuas (maybe a bit shouty in places but you list Pantera as a band you like so I don't think you'd have much trouble with the vocals)
Labyrinth
Jacob's Dream
Savatage
Sinergy
Symphony X
Virtuocity

Helstar (some growling/screaming in an old school metal style, maybe start with the older material before they reformed a few years ago which has slightly harsher vocals and may not be to your tastes)
Threshold (more prog metal but could be of interest)
Vanden Plas (as above, more prog metal but could be of interest)

I'm rather "meh" on that album. Certainly not bad by any stretch of the mind, and it does have its moments. But it doesn't grab me the same way their previous releases did and I'm not sold on the production. Definitely preferred the thicker/muddier production of their previous releases. Needs more HM-2.

I haven't heard of that album to be honest. I have Cowboys From Hell and Vulgar Display Of Power. Honestly, the vocals on some of the songs on VDOP are a little too harsh for my tastes. I prefer high range vocals, but I also like edgy vocals a la Mustaine or Hetfield and Anselmo from CFH.

While I do agree that their previous releases are better I still think this is a great album and considering this is a pretty weak year for metal (at least from the albums I have heard) I still think it's one of the best albums around this year.

And since I know you arent the biggest fan of Gojira you can skip reading from here

I just came home from a Gojira concert. And they nailed it. Amazing, great set-list, tight as usual and they were all on a very good mood. Definitely the best gig by them I've seen.

If you enjoy those leads check out king diamond (old school) & 3 inches of blood (Canadian band).

Check the newest 3IOB album "long live heavy metal" as the older albums also had parts with the growling you dont enjoy. There last 2 albums have been sans growler, but the previous release was terrible.

"look out" would be a good song to start with, they did it in honor of Dio.

I also recommend 3IOB. Great band, cool guys, and they dig hockey (doesn't everyone from Canada?)




And for some more Canadian metal, one of my favorites is Into Eternity. I can't say enough good about them. They do growl and scream, but there's also lots of clean vocals. It's like an even mix in most songs, which adds to the greatness IMO.

Real cool guys, I had a chance to meet them last year & it was just like slugging a beer with the boys.

Very down to earth, they really seem to be coming into their own in the latest effort.



Another band of that genre that caught my attention was holy grail. Good to see the new generation doing old school sounds.



Also really digging the new orange goblin album (not like they have a bad one):

Been listening a lot to Left Hand Path in the car lately and it's an album that I will never get tired of. Such a classic. Also enjoying the latest album by Black Breath.. Nailing the Buzz-saw sound on their release from this year. Fantastic live act as well.

Cool! Do they play these full songs live? Both closer to stoner metal than to doom IMHO.
