this is one of those albums that die hard metal fans weren't too keen on.

me-myself, i love it.

Megadeth - Risk.

its a bit more rock influenced, but is beautifully produced, and sounds great. got some really catchy songs on there.

a side of Megadeth not often seen.

please, give it a try.

Another one to add to the list, this is melodic metal, like Iron Maiden, just a bit deeper.

the band are called Queensryche, and the album is called Operation Mindcrime.

give it a go, and enjoy.

Iced Earth - The Glorious Burden.

First album with a new singer, so metal fans automatically hate it. Me, I love it. In particular check out the last 3 tracks, the Gettysberg trilogy. Stunning. Go to Spotify NOW, do not pass go, do not collect £200. GO TO SPOTIFY NOW!!!

Hi Bigfish

Have you tried TNT Intuition, that's melodic metal.

Otherwise try Loudness Lightning Strikes. They are a Japanese version of Iron Maiden and the guitarist is exceptional, touches of Gary Mooore (in his metal phase) and Eddie Van Halen.

Hope you enjoy. I will check out your Megadeth recommendation as I love their album " So far So Good.. So What".

Rock on
