Ahhh if you want straight Heavy Metal you should have said so lol!!

That is alright. Quite honestly I thought "Heavy Metal" was specific enough and had no idea it could refer to a plethora of sub genres of metal. When I typically hear an average person say heavy metal, I expect they mean anything from AC/DC to Slayer, but I also thought that perhaps as a term used by metal fans, it referred to what may be considered traditional metal. I guess now I'm confused a bit but that's my train of thought.

Secondly, regardless of a few non trad metal picks, I liked your previous list a lot. Did not know Suidakra yet so that was a nice find. Thanks!

Well, as far as Traditional Metal goes, here are a few I haven't seen mentioned yet

Paragon-Law of the Blade
Tarot-any
Legion-Shadow of the King (if you can find the damn thing)
Saxon-Lionheart
Metal Always. Metal Only.

I am surprised no one mentioned Manilla Road

Manilla Road - Crystal Logic (songs Necropolis or Flaming Metal Systems)
Hanker - The Dead Ringer (United we Stand/Divided we fall)
Hanker - Snakes and Ladders (On the Verge of Tears)
Pharaoh - Be Gone (Speak to me, Buried at Sea, Cover your eyes and pray)
Pharaoh - Bury the Light (Year of the Blizzard, The Spiders Web)

I would read all of the staffs "Best of year xxxx". That's one of the best places for fine metal.
