Thanks for suggestions guys.
To be clear, I am not looking for black metal, folk, melodic death, or any of those types of metal. I really wanted pure heavy metal suggestions. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Ironsword, Manilla Road, those kinds. I really didn't even mean for power metal suggestions either. I've gone down the power metal road before.
Am I getting the term "heavy metal" wrong, and it actually is just an umbrella term for all metal? If so, I should specify it differently I guess.
