Music I'm Stuck On

I post music that catches my attention from time to time, but it occurs to me that I have never posted the bands that have grabbed the lion's share of my listening time for the past several years. My problem now is narrowing down the song list to just a couple, because I sincerely love large swaths of both bands' catalogs. These choices are not necessarily representative, but simply ones I listen to over and over.

The Finnish band Nightwish combined power metal with classical influences and operatic female vocals to become one of the primary archetypes of symphonic metal.

The Dutch band Within Temptation came from the gothic metal side of the coin around the same time and again features a stellar female lead.
