Dark Moor, anyone?

This is my favorite melodic-speed/neoclassical/symphonic/power metal band at the moment, but mostly due to their first two albums with the female vocalist (which is strange because usually I'm not into female vocals). Their songs might not be overwhelmingly impressive for a serious highbrow classical listener, but considering their genre they're pretty good I think. A typical song in this genre is of the following format: intro (chorus melody played by the guitar or synth) - verse - chorus - verse - chorus - mindless fast guitar/keyboard soloing - chorus. But Dark Moor has a lot of riffs and instrumental stuff between the vocal parts, and the guitar solos, while in a somewhat cheesy baroqueish/classicalish style, are still better then your typical random shred moment in this genre.

Not my usual bag but I enjoyed the first track (haven't listened to the others yet).

I think Elisa Candelas Martin sings very well and such cheesiness as is evident is bearable.

I can see myself listening to this in the car.

A Spanish heavy metal band. Who'd have thunk it?
