I'm looking for songs like Kamelot - Forever, Iron Maiden - The Trooper, Blind Guardian - Time Stands Still. Basicaly mellodic metal songs which aren't jsut power chords with a solo.

Vanden Plas' Beyond Daylight album is a gem! I also recommend it for this topic. All songs are 10/10 but the very best would be: Scaarlet Flower Fields, Healing Tree and the amazing title-track (fantastic vocal melodies there!!)

I would strongly recommend Iced Earth's Something Wicked This Way Comes you want be disappointed. Also try the Schaffer, Kursch, Hybird Band Demons and Wizards both of thier cds are great. But my number one choice for you is Paradise Lost Draconian Times the album is brillant with amazing guitar riffs and haunting vocals. Great stuff

Powerslave
Therion - Via Nocturna
This is the chunkiest most catchy riff i have ever heard, i think its like 1 or 2 mins in.

King Diamond - A Mansion In Darkness
It has to be one of the most amazing opening riffs ever.

Dungeon - A Rise To Power
Their best song with another one of my fav riffs.

If just melodic /catchy riffs are enough then whyu don't you listen to Amon Amarth? They relly have catchy music, however no clean vocals. They are melodic Death metal.

A really catchy riff and refrain is a song from The old dead tree called "How could you?" . Give it a try!

This is probably way out of left field, and am not really sure how heavy you're wanting; but check out Alkaline Trio's 'Crimson'.

This, in my opinion was the album of 2005. Not overly heavy, but just catchy as all f*&k.

See if you can download the track 'Burn' (track #3) off this album just for a taste.

Megadeth: "Tornado of Souls" and "Hanagr 18", very catchy and clean oldschool thrash, with plenty of catchyness in the writing as well as tonnes of melody, for all those familiar to their better/older era... I'd be very surprised if they weren't mentioned yet... definitely worth checking out if you haven't as of yet.

Thank You, I will take that as a special compliment coming from some one who excellent musical knowledge as yourself....I was hoping to bring a list of songs that would not be listed standardly by others and maybe to open some doors to different styles that hasn't been mentioned before.

You could get Opeth. They do alot of folk metal. But it's really good. I think you'd like it.

Like cursed said - Hammerfall's "Hearts on Fire" is possibly the catchiest song. Ever.

But try "Hammer of Justice" and "The Fire Burns Forever" from the same band. Also:

"If I Could Fly" - Heloween
"When the Lights are Down", "Wander", "Karma" - Kamelot
"The Winter Wake" and "Neverending Nights" - Elvenking
"Crimson King", "Winter of Souls" - Demons and Wizards
"Metal Tyrant" - Seven Witches
"The Bane of Daninsky" - Dark Moor

...and remember - "Hearts on Fire" from Hammerfall!
