    My thirst for DLC from Amorphis burns like a thousand suns. Enigma, Sky is Mine, Far from the Sun...oh, man.

    Note that I'm a PS3 user, so quenching that thirst would require an additional step.

    Also into Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Hammerfall, and In Flames, but Amorphis tops my list of NB bands.

    Continuing my focus on Epica, some of my favorites from their two albums on Nuclear Blast that I think would work well on Rock Band:

    Unleashed
    Never Enough
    Burn to a Cinder
    Chasing the Dragon
    Martyr of the Free Word
    The Obsessive Devotion
    Beyond Belief

    Of course, I'd be happy to have them show up on Rock Band regardless of the song, so please consider it!

    Well bands are Testament, Blind Guardian, Candlemass, Dimmu Borgir, Epica, Soilwork, Sonic Syndicate, Symphony X and Vader

    From the former bands, Children of Bodom, Deathstars, In Flames, Nightwish

    From the Formation of Damnation album, beside More Than Meets the Eye, I love Formation of Damnation, Afterlife and F.E.A.R. :D (though Henchmen Ride was also a great addition to RBN imo)
    And it was great to see some songs in Brütal Legend like Deathstars' Blitzkrieg or Candlemass' Witches.
    (Though, the more songs the better :D)

    And although german is not a language in RBN at the moment, i also love Subway to Sally.
    Hope there's everything right with the signed and copyright stuff, it gets a bit confusing sometimes. ;)

    Nuclear Blast - hell yes!

    My girl and I are very stoked to play "The Serpentine Offering" whenever it hits the store.

    Would love to get some Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Epica - and definitely some Helloween.

    definitely "Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse"

    I remember seeing the video on Yahoo Music back in 2004 when I would watch videos on there non-stop

    I had never heard any extreme metal before this and the song/video really drew me in, opened me up to a new thing

    "Blut Im Auge" from Equilibrium must come. They'd be the most epic guitar and drum charts ever. And I love Helge Stang's vocals. It'd be so fun to play.
