    For some more traditional heavy/thrash metal, look up Dio, King Diamond, UFO, Krokus, Exodus, Death Angel, Rainbow, Destruction, Tankard

    And for some newer bands like you mentioned, try The Crown, Illnath, Keep Of Kalessin, Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir, Belphegor, Urgehal

    Oh and my favourite album is Iron Maiden's Somewhere In Time.

    Check out Iced Earth if you enjoy Maiden. Heavy Maiden/old school influence there.

    without "Slayer" your list seems to be incomplete.

    and my favorite album: "Ghost Reveries" by Opeth. any way all their 00s albums are magnificent.
