nightwish - kitee, finland
then an enormously large gap..
and in no order....
muse - UK
tiesto - netherlands
within temptation - netherlands
the music - UK
the killers - US [quite fond of them for some reason]
Luca Turilli - italy
in flames - sweeden
theres no real point in picking anymore, or even some of the above 4, these change like the weather
i have left the classical composers like handel, bach, out of the mix
i dont really listen to many bands/artist or have favourites, beyond nightwish
i like a lot of individual songs, one hit wonders, and just things i hear and think, oh thats good,
i tend to listen by genre, symphonic/power metal, classical, trance/dance
and seeing as i dont like old style rock [beatles etc which seem to be most peoples choices] i have no particular region, so wont vote
