This is pretty much going down my top artists list, but I'll explain why I like each, and as you can probably see its quite a diverse list.Sonata Arctica
--Favorite band because of the awesome melodies combined with great lyrics to put it simplistically... I guess I can relate to what they sing about very well.Dream Theater
--Dream Theater is awesome because they do things in such a weird way that they're awesome. If you ever watch mike portnoy doing a video about his playing style you'll know what I mean. Train of Thought
is by far my favorite album followed by Awake
because of the heavy nature of the albums.E.S. Posthumus
is my next favorite band because of their quite "experimental" music that has a very cool rhythm in each song paired with an equally cool orchestra melody.Warmen
Is next up on the list because of their incredible instrumental tracks such as Return Of Salieri
which are simply incredible to listen to.
