I also started to listen to Helloween but couldn't make it past the first one. Damn, that is probably the shrillest voice I've ever heard. You really imagine a pixie singing on that 'Warrior' track. Can somebody recommend a good power metal band with not-so-shrill vocals?

Also I wanted to start listening to some melodic death metal, so that I could venture into the more extreme side of music. Scoff as much as you want, being a Christian I do not want to listen to anti-Christ lyrics, even if the band members themselves are not Satanic. Nothing more anti-Christ than Jump In The Fire at least. I'm not going to faint as soon as I hear the word Satan or Lucifer, just they shouldn't be in a good light. Please recommend one. Please don't say Dark Tranquility because I don't want pianos in my extreme metal.

I prefer listening to bands that are consistent and continue to release material today.

Edit: A lot of you guys are really helpful but suggest a lot of bands at once which can be quite overwhelming. Please try to keep it less than three bands. Sorry for being so particular and choosy

In Flames - The Jester Race, Colony, Whoracle. They're still making music but haven't made anything good or decent since Clayman way back in the day.

Also, old Dark Tranquillity is better and doesnt have the heavy keyboard presence. So, The Gallery and Skydancer are albums you want to hear. I support the Mirrorworlds rec as well, great album, that one.

Obsequiae - Suspended in the Brume of Eos
Oubliette - Apparitions

Just a few ideas. Test em out. See how they are.

Listen to Helloween's Keeper of the Seven Keys part I and part II. It's a different singer. Plus they are absolutely essential starting points for power metal.

Also check out:
Grim Reaper - Rock You to Hell
Heaven's Gate - Open the Gate (it's an EP)
Fates Warning - The Spectre Within

He'd also probably like Nosferatu by Bloodbound.

He only mentioned non-satanic death metal, so I though satanic power metal was still a go.
