I think instead of finding new bands when I'm running out of music, i'll just check out more albums on the current bands that I'm listening to.
You should really check out the bands that I have listed though...
Cast Into Fields of Evil Pleasure by Illnath(illnath) is pretty much one of the best SBM albums I've ever heard. In The Shadow Of A Thousand Suns by Abigail Williams is another very good album you should check out.

Speaking of symphonic black metal, I decided to get Dimmu Borgir's Enthrone Darkness Triumphant on CD so I'll be getting it in a few days time. Feel free to hate me all you want.
This band had a few good moments, really. They are not the best, but hey! They are in Hellboy's soundtrack, how much more mainstream can you get? :)

I'm not comparing bands, i'm comparing the fan bases.
I can't see myself as an exception...
I hate In Flames new albums and love Threat Signal's first...
There is no way in hell they know who stratovarius is.
Yeah, I fucking swear. There was this girl I went to High School with and a guy I worked with at the grocery store who just wasn't into metal at all, but he knew Stratovarius and told me he really liked Millenium and shits.
I know a fuckload of people who hate power metal even more than the harsher metal genres.
Biggest reason being that they don't like the vocals. Because power metal is veryyyyy melodic, it has very simple song structures (almost poppish), Radio-friendly vocals and all that kind of stuff.
Which is not making them less good or less innovative. In fact I like power metal, but I just see them as easy-listenning metal.Easy listening metal is an oxymoron.
Agalloch, Edguy, Avantasia, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Symphony X, Sonata Arctica, Dream Theater, Helloween, Mago De Oz, Nightwish, Kamelot, Katatonia, Liquid Tension Experiment, Jacobs Dream, Allen-Lande, Altaria, Voyager and I can't be bothered to list more bands event though there is a shitload of bands that I would consider easy liustenin metal...
Not easy for the un-educated pop fans and their limited comprehension of arts. But I have a few friends who are not into metal and they still like bands from this list
The musicians don't affect the kind of music.
The metal opera albums are boring and generic.
Scarecrow is interesting and innovative.
I know about all this. But even if Metal Opera sounds more generic for the power metal scene, The Scarecrow sounds very pop.
Not so much "Douche" but more "Idiot"
I don't care about the insult used. The fact stands... you are dissing what you once was.
I won't diss all the bands that got me first into metal... Kalmah, Slipknot, CoB.Even though they are pure shit?
They are not pure shit. Kalmah and CoB are still amongs the bands I like to listen to. And Slipknot, if Corey Taylor was not such a pretenious hypocritical bitch, would be a better band.
And shit or not, they are what got me first into metal. I know that if my first contacts with metal would have been Ulver and Benighted, I'm quite sure that I wouldn't have traded my Sum 41 albums for Bergtatt and Insane Cephalic Production. Slipknot was like an "in-between" a bridge between popular music and metal.
Disturbed was one of the bands that got me into metal, I openly admit they are god awful today.
Disturbed... shit? Can't see what's so bad about them. Ten Thousand First was a good album. They may not be truezzz but they still write good alternative metal stuff.
