I'm looking for a specific type of metal, it has to be old, preferably dark sounding. Songs about battle are definitely preferred. Basically bands that sound like Omen, but with better vocals(nothing against the dude from Omen, I like em a lot.) Specific songs are good too.

Here's a few examples

Brocas Helm

This is their most popular song (due to being on a game) but their material is pretty awesome.

That Axehammer is *exactly* what I'm looking for, that is good shit right there. I'm aware of Brocas Helm, but that's also a good recommendation.

Axehammer is indeed great. Sadly for the band it took more than 10 years to get that Lord of the Realm EP released.

Maybe Thor from Canada? http://www.metal-archives.com/band.php?id=259

What about Adramelch and Dark Quarterer? The Etruscan Prophecy is basically the epitome of 'epic heavy metal'. Adramelch, too, soaring riffs!

Try out Atlantean Kodex. They are a new German band, but they live and play the sounds of the epic metal old school, a la 80's Manowar, Solstice, Bathory, Manilla Road and so on.

Also check out Isen Torr, fucking monstrous Epic metal!

Just wanted to thank everyone for their responses and help, lots of good stuff here. I've been spinning that Axehammer pretty much non stop since first hearing it.
