Are there any good European heavy metal bands similar to Firewind. ( I'm starting to like this European stuff) Any suggestions on who is good, or who you like would be great! Thanks :D

I play the European stuff -

You may like Upon The Grave Of Giult by Falconer, Valley Of The Damned by Dragonforce, 7 Keys part 1 by Helloween.

I love that ****.
Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Circus Maximus,......
Theres a whole bunch of great european bands, those above should keep ya busy for a while ;)
Just start with Kai Hansen. He is the man when it comes to European power metal. He created Helloween and was their main songwriter on their 80s albums. He created Gamma Ray after he left Helloween. He has been on numerous Blind Guardian albums. He was in Iron Savior in the late 90s. He's been heavily involved in the European metal scene as he was also on Tobias Sammet's Avantasia and on the album Temple Of Shadows by Angra. Plus I think Gamma Ray is one of the best bands ever checkout the album Powerplant.
