I'd say my most favorite out of them is Last Ride of the Day, but many others like shudder before the beautiful, Amaranth, beauty of the beast, crownless, endless forms most beautiful, shoemaker, song of myself, escapist and more.Finally! Someone else that has heard of Nightwish. Do you have a favorite song from them? The following video is my favorite song from them.
Coolness. Hydra is really good!Within Temptation are another great band that I only discovered fairly recently! Their latest album Resist doesn't have a single bad track on it. I've also given Hydra a play and it too is pretty decent..
I haven't heard of Gloryhammer either though, I will be sure to check them out.
