Nice. Quite a few of those are in my top ten.

Do you really enjoy the post-Ozzy Sabbath years? I don't hate Dio, but he completely ripped Sabbath's soul out (or whatever they had left).

'Falling Off The Edge Of The World' from 'Mob Rules' is one of the best Sabbath tunes ever. More here:

I'm really digging Agalloch. What else should I get in that vein?

Opeth - Morningrise
Symphony X - The Divine Wings of Tragedy
Queensryche - Empire
Ayreon - Flight of the Migrator
Devin Townsend - Infinity
King's X - s/t

Most of these are relatively melodic and draw influence from classical music as well as different metal genres. You should also check out some of their progressive forebears (and probably vastly more important groups):

Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Jethro Tull
Gentle Giant
King Crimson

Try Drudkh - Autumn Aurora(comes close to agalloch, with just a bit more black metal parts)
The one's mentioned in the above post are good, but are mainly strait up progressive metal. Agalloch has this post-metal relaxing kinda feel.
Give Bergtatt Et Eeventyr i 5 Capitler by Ulver a go as well. Again, it has more black metal parts, but it definitely comes close.
And both the albums i mentioned are nothing like traditional Black metal. A lot more melodic and easier to listen to.

The Symphony X was good, as was Queensryche. Still checking out the others. I liked Opeth until the vocalist kicked in. Thanks again for all the help bro, I appreciate it.

Ulver were a good listen, thanks for that, however Drudkh didn't strike me as well.
