You probably heard of this one before: Rhapsody - Unholy Warcry, their stuff has loads of awesome solos. Dark Moor is also a great power metal band so you sure should check them out.

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

Anything by Blind Guardian, Dark Moor, Rhapsody Of Fire, Luca Turilli, Helloween, Hammerfall, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius will contain amazing riffs, solo and everything.

This is really hard, personally I don´t even think anymore of favourite song, because it depends on what mood I am in,... its just toooo haaaaarrrrrrd!

Since this is quite hard, I´ll just make a short list and pick two songs for each band wink.gif

Manowar - Hail and Kill (or any other song...)
Manowar - Defender
Iron Maiden - The Clairvoyant
Iron Maiden - The Evil that men do
Blind Guardian - Welcome to Dying
Blind Guardian - When Sorrow Sang
Judas Priest - Nightcrawler
Judas Priest - Pain Killer
Running Wild - The Privateer
Running Wild - Bad to the Bone
Helloween - Future World
Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys
Hammerfall - The Dragon lies Bleeding
Hammerfall - Hammerfall
Grave Digger - Scotland united
Grave Digger - Rebellion (the clans are marching)
Saxon - Lionheart
Saxon - Crusader

enough for now tongue.gif
