I tried a download of their newest album.  Yes, I got it for free as I didn't want to buy yet another album I may or may not like.  I didn't care for it at all.  The vocals are just low enough under the mix that I can't understand the lyrics.  So, I deleted it off my FiiO player and off the computer.

I might recommend Wingdom and Gloriam Dei.  Wingdom features former Sonata Arctica keyboards Mikko Harkin while Gloriam Dei features Wingdom vocalist Sami Asp.

For female fronted symphonic metal, I might recommend LEAH or Hypersonic.

I had Wingdom and eventually sold or traded it.  I just couldn't get into it at all.  I just don't dig overly progressive metal.

LEAH is another personal favorite, as well as Tarja, though the latter is more operatic metal and something fewer folks have a taste for.

I need to place a massive order to Ulterium and get a bunch of their stuff, including everything from Theocracy.

I'm on the lookout for other bands of this genre. When I found Ulterium it was like stumbling onto the mother lode. Any others, besides HB?

Another you might like is DivineFire. The lead singer is  Christian Liljegren of Narnia, but the band is more of a symphonic power/thrash band, with some core-type growls alongside Christian' tenor.

Strictly Christian bands? I ask because Sinbreed has stated they are not, InnerWish supposedly is (according to Encyclopedia Metallum) but their lyrics don't make it obvious like Theocracy and Signum Regis, and Diviner doesn't make any claim either way (but their lead guitarist apparently is, and he was originally with InnerWish). If you like female-fronted power metal but aren't concerned about it being a Christian group as long as the lyrics are clean you might like Seven Kingdoms, a favorite of mine, with fantasy-based lyrics.

InnerStrength and Jacobs Dream are also good Christian power metal bands, although more the American than the European style. (There is a difference for those that don't know. Smile )

Not necessarily strictly Christian, though if I'm going to buy any secular music, I've got a couple holes in my collection named "Chuck Berry" and "Beatles" that I'll probably fill first. The discretionary budget isn't what it once was before mortgages and kids. Smile But feel free to give me pointers to anything. At least I'll get a taste of what's out there now. Thanks to the internet I've been able to legally download samplers for free, to have music on-the-go, and stream while at work. I've added a bunch of artists to my wishlist this way that I never would have heard of otherwise, mostly within the past two years. I honestly can't imagine how bands managed to do it back in the day, because I almost never get word of so-and-so playing a show at such-and-such until after the fact. Unless you're really into that scene, you'd think what was on the radio was the sum total of music. I'm finding great stuff from 10+ years ago and thinking, "How did I not know about this sooner?"

By way of introduction, I'll say my musical tastes are pretty diverse. I grew up in the 80s, so I've got a soft spot for pop and hard rock of that era, but I mostly listened to oldies—rockabilly, doowop, British invasion, surf music, Motown, all of it. I was introduced to Metallica, Manowar, and Savatage too. In the 90s there got to be enough Christian music around that I started to listen to that almost exclusively, and by 2000 my tastes started to wander out of the mainstream. I was into the ska craze (FIF), and other acts you wouldn't hear much on the radio, like The Electrics and Maire Brennan. I've long appreciated classical, and there's nothing wrong with country (including bluegrass). I like novelty songs and well-executed parodies (ApologetiX rocks). My tastes in metal run toward symphonic and European-style power (yes, they are different!), but I still like thrash too. My wife is into R&B and EDM, and a lot of that stuff is great. Regardless of the genre, I've got to be able to make sense of the vox or I'm going to turn it off. I've started rocking with some great punk or metal, only to have the singer start gargling razors in my ear—very disappointing. (Some screams or growls for effect is one thing, but I don't want to listen to it for 3+ minutes.) I'm fairly meticulous classifying my music to build playlists; I'm refining this constantly.

My metal playlist right now includes ApologetiX, Black Fate, Darkwater, Demon Hunter, Disciple, DivineFire, Diviner, End of September, Everything in Slow Motion, Harmony, HB, Head, Holy Soldier, Hope For The Dying, Incrave, InnerWish, Michael Sweet, Millennial Reign, Narnia, Righteous Vendetta, Sinbreed, Sincerely Autumn, Scandinavian Metal Praise, Signum Regis, Skillet, Sleeping Romance, Theocracy, Tourniquet, Waken Eyes, Within Silence.

^^ I just realized I typed InnerStrength when I meant InnerSiege. "Inner Strength" is the name of one of InnerWish's albums. Too many inner's! Very Happy

Not to push Seven Kingdoms (I like them, but I'm not their agent! Smile ) but below is a YT playlist that includes some of theirs. I accidentally ordered two of their latest EP and would be happy to send the extra to you if you like; just $5 to cover shipping.

You probably wouldn't like it then.  I recommend spending your money on something you will like better.

Actually got the new Theocracy anyway to give them one last chance and I liked it well enough. Gonna revisit the others.
