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.

Jup, i like Dark Moor as well. I play electric guitar myself, and this is the kind of metal that doesn't get boring to play. Especially the solos are great stuff to study and play :rolleyes:
Here is some similar stuff that I like:
Rhapsody of Fire - Unholy Warcry
Luca Turilli's Rhapsody - Ascending to Infinity
Galneryus - Angel of Salvation
Angra - Nova Era
Heavenly - Victory
Sonata Arctica - Wolf & Raven
