Uli Jon Roth, Pagan's Mind, Nightwish. Those have similarities with Symphony X but they are really different though
Malmsteen...similar to Symphony X...

Try Redemption, it's not quite the same but it's pretty good prog metal.


Next time try the Rec. Thread.

You could try Dream Theater, Fates Warning, and Vanden Plas.

Yngw... Oh, right.

Those listed above here seems good.
I have heard some of Pagan's Mind, and it's not bad.

I was gonna say try Dream Theater but its been said...

After a mindboggling 3-hour Steve Vai concert, I had to listen to some brainless guitar playing... so I put on Nevermind...

Jesus Rocks!

You are the first person except for me that I have ever seen mention Vanden Plas on this forum. +10000 e-cookies sir, and you have great taste in music!

Just thought of them, might try Avantasia although that's less heavy and more power-metal.

Edit: Romeo played on a couple Kotipelto albums so you might try that. Also Stratovarius and Star One might be worth looking into, although i haven't listened to those in a long time so I can't say for sure.

+1 on Uli Roth, Ayreon and Nightwish. I haven't heard of Vanden Plas. Dutch or German Band?

You COULD try the recommendation thread stickied at the top.
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.
