Like i said before, i'm really starting to get into the european music scene. i already like:
Rhapsody
Stratovarius
Gamma Ray
Helloween

i was just wondering if you (or anyone else) could reccomend some other bands. i really like the melodic metal and classical influences. i would greatly appreciate it.
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

I kind of compare them to Iron Maiden. But than again they don´t have much harmonized molodies but still the chord progressions are close but Hammerfall is perhaps a little bit harder after all. A

I haven´t heard old Hammer. records. The only one I´ve heard is Renegade and it´s pretty good.

It´s a pretty wild compare but than again it´s just me and my imagination.
