Metal is big here in Europe indeed.
I like Rammstein quite a lot and lately I've been looking into Lacuna Coil
This one rocks! (ha! punny..)
Korpiklaani is fun, and there's even a metal acapella band which is damn good, only a drummer, the rest, including guitar work is done with voices.
Van Canto -Rebellion
Also there's Arjen Lucassen's Ayreon if you want some prog rock.
And of course if all else fails, there's still AC/DC
Rock and metal plenty around but nowadays radio stations rather play music made by people with 40 songwriters and enough computer power to shame the NSA only to cover up that they have no talent and can't sing...
