I want to listen to new music, but I really don't know where to begin.

I like metal, but I'm very picky. Iron Maiden is undisputably my favorite band of all time. I'm also a fan of Scar Symmetry, Voyager, and I listen to some Nightwish, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil, Linkin Park, and Within Temptation.

Maybe I'm just afraid to venture into new territory, but if you're a fan of any of these bands, what do you recommend? I have Spotify and iHeartRadio, but almost never use them.

I like Shinedown and their song Her Name Is Alice

If you are looking to listen to new music, I think last.fm is the best streaming website for that. It doesn't play it as safe as something like Pandora so I always find that I am introduced to more artists that I haven't heard of.

I'm not really a fan of those bands you listed, but maybe check out Karnivool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDKsosOvVmw

I don't know by the post you made if you're looking for new music as in just came out recently or older bands you may like that would be new to you that may fall into your wheelhouse. If it's the latter I have a few suggestions.

If you're a fan of Iron Maiden you may like:
Fates Warning
A.R.T.C.H. (A Return to Church Hill)
Samson (with Bruce Dickenson on vocals)
Helloween
Accept
Riot (not to be confused with Quiet Riot)
Iced Earth
Metal Church

If you like Nightwish, Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, Evanescence you may like:
Pamela Moore
Lana Lane
Rue
Warlock (and Doro Pesch's solo stuff as well)
Wendy O. Williams
Blackmore's Night
Halestorm

I think most of them are on Spotify so you can check out any that may interest you easily.
