42. Amberian Dawn - Circus Black

Another female-fronted, this one is your symphonic power metal formulaic band. If Nightwish/Xandria/Epica don't do it for you, then these guys are probably a waste of your time. However if not, then it is definitely worth listening to. The title track is very catchy, and the rest of the tracks deliver well. Stratovarius singer even guests on the single "Cold Kiss". Amberian Dawn are much better than the average 'hunt on YouTube for new music' power metal band, as they have crisp production with strong songwriting. This makes them stand out much more than their competitors, those being more than 80% of the power metal genre. Give it a go if you wish, who knows? You might be surprised.
