Classic Rock and Metal. Same as always. Always have, always been, always will.

Any metal recommendations?  Trying to broaden my horizons

Avantasia are a favorite of mine recently. Recommend the Ghostlights and Moonglow records.

how familiar are you with the genre?

I’m getting more familiar, trying to find what I like.

Since you are into fantasy you could check out some power metal, lots of fantasy themes and references:

Blind Guardian - Imaginations from the Other Side

Rhapsody - Symphony of Enchanted Lands

For some top notch heavy stuff:

Rage - Soundchaser all songs related to the Cthulhu mythos 

Primal Fear - any record would do

Softer more melodic feel:

Nordic Union - Nordic Union

Sunstorm - The first four records are gems

Let me know how you get on

My kid loves these guys.  I laughed at the epic insanity.

People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true.

Where to start, I've seen some awesome recommendations... Blind Guardian, Opeth, Rhapsody and Glory Hammer, ... 🙂.

To bring out the Celt/Viking/Pirate in me:

- Amon Amarth (Twilight of the Thunder God complete album)

- Ensiferum (Unsung Heroes complete album)

- Korpiklaani (Happy Little Boozer)

- Alestorm (F**** with an Anchor)

- Honorable mentions: Finntroll, Turisas, Hammerfall, Sonata Arctica, Sabaton, Kamelot, Epica,...

That let's gooooo feeling:

- Slipknot (Duality)

- Five Finger Death Punch (Wash it All Away)

- Parkway Drive (Wild Eyes)

- Bring Me The Horizon (Diamonds Aren't Forever)

- Slayer (Raining Blood)

- Sepultura (Roots Bloody Roots)

- Arch Enemy (We Will Rise)

Nothing but love:

- Rammstein (Mein Herz brennt, the whole Mutter album)

And I can go on but think I made a decent list of recommendations, these are just some of what I love.

I've seen all of them, except for Rammstein and System of a Down, live 😊.

Metal is not the only thing I love 😉.

For those who like/love movie music, and want something epic, check out the band that has made a lot of trailer music: Two Steps From hell (Invincible album for example)
