Anyone have some good New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal bands they'd recommend? Something like Cauldron, Skullfist, or Striker? I need some more, desperately. I've had Cauldron's last album on rotation for a week or two straight now, but I need new stuff!

Fuck! Portal is so great!

Speaking of crazy tech metal, Pyrrhon has a new record out in a couple days. I can't wait for that one!
Oh fuuuuuuck. Yes!

Carach Angren also have a new record out soon!

Gonna shill my good friend's bands here. No bullshit, both are really good.
Drakkar- Traditional heavy metal/power

Crimson Dawn- Doom/Traditional (this song's in Italian but the rest of their music is in English ;) )

I think they're both pretty cool particularly Drakkar., but neither are quite as oldschool in sound as what I'm looking for. Something I guess more specifically like Cauldron, or Leatherheart if you've heard them. (NWoTHM from Spain) Cauldron hit the nail on the head for me when it came to discovering this sub-genre. A blend of Angelwitch + Dokken = Cauldron.

Hmmmm, can't think of anything with a more old-school sound other than the old-school bands. Grand Magus maybe?

Recently I've had System of a Down on the mind again, and through that I discovered that Daron Malakian released a new album a few years back that is made up of mostly unused material from a hypothetical SOAD reunion, since that never seemed to get off the ground. And it's really good! After all these years it's strange to hear new stuff in this style, and a very pleasant surprise that it stands up so well too.

It's not technically new, but Bulb (Misha of Periphery) is releasing all of his original song demos/ideas throughout the rest of the year. The first release (Vol 8, because he's releasing them in reverse order) just came out. There's like only 3 "real" songs, the rest are more like song fragments and the two April Fools songs (of which Beta is actually pretty entertaining IMHO). It's a kind of proggy djenty music.
