    @ Susan Thanks for notifying me! The new links should be working now.

    I added the newest stuff, my favorites of the bunch would probably be Gloryhammer (recommended to any Alestorm fan) and A Hero For the World (even though their singer is a carbon copy of Sammet)!

    Another album I like is the new Starbreeze - these guys identify themselves as "Mass Effect metal." I never played Mass Effect but I really like the futuristic / space theme.

    New Amorphis and Amon Amarth wouldn't really fit into this topic, so I didn't put them up there. But it's definitely true that the newest stuff out of them are nothing but stellar!

    A little update. Both new Kaledon and Dreamtale were fantastic, albeit the latter kinda fell short of my huge expectations. Still, this is top-tier finnish power metal.

    New Battle Beast is also great and so is Timo Tolkki's new project, but it's no Avantasia.

    New Pellek is surprisingly catchier than the debut.

    There's a ton of power metal to come in June and July; I'm looking forward to Cardiant, Magnus Karlsson, Masterplan and Powerwolf! It really is a good year to be a fan of the genre.

    Just checked Dreamtale out for the sake of nostalgia (I love the debut, but Ocean's Heart was garbage and then I lost interest in the genre). It's not bad at all.
