How about some Mongol Rock, The Hu Band.  Love their stuff.  Or even some of the oldies like Deep Purple, Uriah Heep etc just to give a bit of balance.
The Hu has great music, but their vocal style is not ERR appropriate.  Grin

ALready asked for Frozen Crown?
I'm familiar with Frozen Crown, and yes, I believe they've been suggested. ERR kind of has a policy of not adding any new bands with growling vocals, and if I recall Frozen Crown mostly uses clean vocals, so they might be okay for us. ERR exists on donated music, only legally purchased - not illegal downloads from torrent sites, YouTube, etc. So if you have copies of their CD's that you like to donate as mp3's, you would want to contact the admin who adds new music, Trivoulge, and he can evaluate if they are indeed ERR appropriate.  Wink

You can safely assume that I will say "no" to just about anything that has growly vocals in it.  There are some bands that have been added to the station's library in the past that have growls, but that doesn't mean that I want to add more.

It's a shame as I listened to a few songs by those bands and I actually liked Trail of Tears until the growling vocals started.
I kinda liked them both too until the same point!  Cheesy Cheesy

2 bands I really like listening to are Trail Of Tears and Eternal Tears Of Sorrow. In my opinion they play symphonic metal. I was surprised they weren't on the list, but that may still come  Wink Don't know what others think about it  Roll Eyes

Trail of Tears : example song
Eternal Tears Of Sorrow : example song :
There shouldn't really be any surprise why Eternal Tears of Sorrow is not on ERR. They do have symphonic and epic elements, but they are also a little too doom for ERR, and more than half the song (I'd say) is growling. Yes, as new listeners always observe, we do have bands that feature SOME growls (not all or a huge part), and because of that, it's kind of a policy that no new bands with prominent growling get added. Trail of Tears is a bit doomy to me also, but you can ask the station owner, Kailef, directly to check out new bands and see if he wants to add them.  Wink

Hey, Amenra! Welcome to the madness, and may I add I support your love of cats. They are truly the most METAL of all creatures, and always EPIC!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

We need hERRe Memento Mori , mega good doom/progressive/symph band.
"Endlessly" is a decent power metal tune and very ERR appropriate. "I Am" is way too doom, IMO and not epic at all.

Greetings folks, Name's Daniel. 35 yrs old... for now. The wife and I have a cat apiece and reside in central valley california united states. I started listening to ERR after a very short search online for metal stations. A gal from college introduced me to within temptation so that'd be my gateway. I suppose my current occupation is as a stagehand/theater technician but I identify as a network admin and IT consultant. I'm an avid cyclist (mtn bike in town) specifically a distance/duration rider. I'm also an offline gamer in that I'm exclusively a soloist cuz it's cheaper, easier on my internet and gamers are generally obnoxious myself occasionally included.
Hey, FP! Glad you're with us and thanks for sharing.  Grin

New project of Daniel Heiman:

Dimhav - The Boreal Flame

  I've heard of this project quite a bit lately, and I'm pretty sure it's ERR material too. If you have a legal copy and wish to donate it, contact Trivoulge through Discord how to send it to him.  Wink

I suggest Persefone from Andorra. It certainly belongs on ERR. I love Rammstein, but I agree that it does not belong here. But maybe Dimmuborgir does. Quite symphonic.
Persephone is all or mostly growling vocals. There are exceptions when not all of the vocals are growling, or predominently harsh. I realize there's quite a bit to go through, but this has been discussed in general, and Persephone in particular. We're glad to have you though, Dimmu.  Grin

Yeah, I know the song is around, but it had been disabled a while back. I have to say, I honestly didn't know anyone liked it! Sorry to insult you, Triv.   Grin Wink

For a while Secret Sphere "Under the Flag of Mary Read" was requested pretty often. Threshold "Pilot in the Sky of Dreams" , Haggard's "Awakening the Centuries (ALL the time when I first joined), Cryonic Temple's "Beastslayer", Savatage "Morphine Child" (one person in particular), Delain, "The Gathering", and worst of all, SAM (and one or two trolls) used to throw in that godforsaken 18+ minute song by Finland Shaman!! I can't remember the name of that damned abomination since it was mercifully removed years ago, but it made me want to die!  Grin Ahhhh, the good ol' days.

I was SOOO expecting another band dressed as young schoolgirls or something, hahaha! These guys look older than me, but they rock pretty good. I'm not sure if they appeal greatly to me either, but I think they are ERR style for the most part.

Well, and besides that, the admin is also kind of breaking the rules.  Sorry about that.  I just couldn't pick only 10.  I  just couldn't.  :-)
That's my excuse as well.  Tongue  Tongue  Tongue

Thanks, Munin. Many of those are already on a wishlist I have. Obviously, the bands we already have added like Serious Black, PW, IE, Amaranthe, etc shouldn't be a problem. As you're no doubt aware, the Eluveitie we have available had the growling songs removed from the albums before submission, so maybe you already did that (make things easier for Triv).  Wink If not, I would suggest that, and re-submit.
