|Other bands that might count but I didn't list are SOAD, Deftones, and Porcupine Tree.|
|PT aren't metal.|
Major props for Nightwish, amazing band.
If you want good metal, please check out Iced Earth (Barlow era), Morbid Angel, Death, Emperor, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Black Sabbath, Candlemass, My Dying Bride, Dark Tranquillity, Pain of Salvation, Dream Theater, Sonata Arctica and more.
|Kudos for 1,4,6,12,13,15, and 16. You should check out the bands Altmer listed, they're worth a listen.|
|Too much opeth but major props on 8 and 9 Nightwish. 12 and 13 are great. 14 no.|
|Agreed with Balls, too much Opeth. But the list has some quality stuff though.|
|Definitely try some Kamelot, they sound fairly similar to Nightwish I'd say. Also try Dark Tranquillity and In Flames, two of the best metal bands period.|
|Check out Agalloch|
|and don't buy into the whole In Flames thing, they used to alright and now they just plain suck.|
|12 is awesome|
|You're getting there, definately.|
You might want to check out Novembre, they are quite similar to Opeth, and System of a Down is always a good way to get into metal. And of course get into In Flames.
|STONEGARD! nah but i would like to add some more thrash like say kreator, sodom, megadeth and maybe slayer, but not too much.|
|Get Back to Times of Splendor by Disillusion.|
|Opeth and BtBaM are great bands to start getting into metal|
|since you already like 1-7, you should definitely get Orchid. |
|CoB is a great band to start off with metal and a great band at that.|
|between the buried and me are the only useful bands on here tbh|
|These are all great bands and you should check out Kamelot like ninjuice said. Probably my favorite vocalist of all time and its very similar music to Nightwish. And PT is awesome.|
|1-7,11-14, 16 all rule.|
Have not heard Nightwish.
|1, 12, 14, and 16 are so good.|
Get Rid the Lightning by Metallica. Beats anything on this list
|check out novembers doom, I think you'd like them.|
|Death - Human|
At the Gates - Slaughter of the Soul
Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
Behemoth - Demigod
Necrophagist - Onset of Putrefaction
Between the Buried and Me - Alaska
Ensiferum - Iron
Mastodon - Blood Mountain
|well 17 isn't metal, but a pretty decent rock album.|
i wouldn't imagine opeth to be a good band to start accessing metal with. the death vocals would've freaked me out before getting into some tamer shit first, like nu-metal or some other lame genre.
still, albums i like here are 1, 8 and 16.
|Just add Tool to your list and its perfect ;)|
