I can't get into Dream Theater either, it's like watching a French art film.

Oh, good, i thought i was alone in my dislike of what is apparently the greatest all-star metal band in the WORRRRLD!

As for my suggestions...

I'm a fan of blind guardian and in flames, not opeth... definitely inja, children of bodom, and gwar even...

apocalyptica!!! always always apocalyptica, classically trained cellists playing metal etc., it's wonderful.

And i don't know why i even bother, because most of my music is ska/funk/reggae related.

Oh, tomas recommended Denver Harbor and i checked them out and they're pretty awesome if you can handle a bit of poppiness.

Bah, theyre most awesome.. some of their stuff is alot to take on but its appreciation for time signature changes at times. Images and Worlds, youd like that, and their album isnt bad.

If you like Sonata, I'd highly recommend Stratovarius. They're very similar, but more progressive. Recommended first album: Infinite, website: www.stratovarius.com

Soilwork are also very good if you're into death metal. They use keyboards with sounds similar to that of C64 games (like Machinae), recommended album: Figure Number Five, website: www.soilwork.org

lmao i think i was listening to a completely different Devil Doll

Ehm, yeah, there's some girl who calls herself Devil Doll as well. Haven't checked her out...

Oh, and check out Tristania as well. They're somewhat harder than Nightwish etc, and quite a lot cooler. The vocalist is female. And they're almost from my home town...

As an obsessed Sonata Arctica fanboy I never got into Stratovarius. Don't know, don't like the voice of the singer.

Oddly enough, I find Sonata Arctica's voice to be their weakest point. I was into Stratovarius a while back, but somehow, most of their albums have started to bore me.

Episode and Visions are the only two albums from them that still keep me going.

Edguy are somewhat in that vein, too.

Grammar was Sonata's weakest point in the early albums, but they're over that now. In fact, the lyrics are great. High number of songs about relationship problems though, if they keep that up, their next album will be somewhat like Dido.

Timo Kotipeltos voice (stratovarius singer for those uneducated folk) does himself more justice in Kotipelto, much more justice.

I think youre looking at the wrong ego baron, kotipelto is the non egotistically dominated version of stratovarius, they failed to include one of the lead guitarists from stratovarius in Kotipelto, simply because he ran stratovarius and dominated the writing of all songs, including drums vocals guitar etc etc but fair play, they made some awesome albums, i quite like elements Pt.1 and 2 aint too bad either, Stratovarius are awesome, but at times, very irritating.

I dont know if Kotipeltos voice was pushed more so in Strato than what he does in Kotipelto, because in Kotipelto they all work more as a team when it comes to writing. They all were quite content in doing that band, was a breath of fresh air so to speak.

but yes, Kotipelto is a good guy, hes not the one with the ego problem. : )

Intriguing. I shall add Kotipelto to my "music to acquire" list.

He's not the only one: Blaze Bayley, who was Iron Maiden frontman 1993/4 - 1999, named his solo project after himself i.e. BLAZE, who are brill by the way, worth looking into

A band I'd forgotten about temporarily:

Lordi

Kinda hard to describe really, try and get a hold of Blood Red Sandman if you can, bloody brilliant.
Also try getting Rock The Hell Outta You by them as well.
