Besides KD and MF, I have some Overdrive stuff and am looking for more in that realm. Any recommends from any era besides late 2000's and 2010's would be appreciated!

You've probably listened to them before, and sure they're pretty mainstream but In Solitude are a quality act.Been listening to a lot of Sister and the 2nd album these days.

From Sweden (which has the ULTIMATE HM-scene of Scandinavia):

Gotham City - Killer Angels 7", Black Writs Ep and The Unknown LP
Universe - S/T
Heavy Load - Stronger than Evil, Death or Glory (and the rest also)
Europe - S/T (Before turning to full hair-metal they were one of the best Heavy Metal bands of Sweden)
Jonah Quizz - The Anthology (Hjärtlös Stadt is a super Heavy Metal tune)
Mindless Sinner - Turn on the Power LP
Blacksmith - Gypsy Queen
Wizzard - Ninya Warrior 7"

These are just the top of the pop. I could probably recommend 100 lesser-known but totally awesome Swedish HM-bands. If you love the sound there's much to learn.

Denmark

Witchcross - Fit for Fight LP
Randy - Shadows are Falling 7" but the S/T compilation is full of ultimate Heavy

Finland (To be honest Finlands early Heavy Metal-scene wasn't that great but there were a few deserving to be mentioned):

OZ - Third Warning LP (NICE LITTLE HOUSE AND A WIFE, BUT I WANNA SING IN A BAND!)
Sarcofagus - Cycle of Life and Envoy of Death (first HM of Finland, unique and obscure and Fenriz likes them)
Tarot - Spell of Iron
Kassu Halonen - I Have Played Rock'n'Roll
Crom - Earth Queen/Eyes of Fire
Wildchild - Rock with Me/Ridin' the Night 7" (just made reunion)
O.S.S.Y - Tanssityttö Barbara (Singer went to prison for 12 years for multiple cases of rape, human trafficking and fraud in 2011)

also Kirka and Popeda

For Norway I can't say and I hope someone will recommend some Norwegian Heavy.

Tarot. First three albums (more narrowminded ones will only say the debut) are classics what comes to Fnnish heavy metal.

Oz! You can never hail these guys enough... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBAEhQs50Y4

Ironcross

Stratovarius were also great on the first albums when Tolkki used to sing. Also being more real heavy metal than that european styled 90's power metal which they are known for.

And since Sarcofagus seems too obvious for everyone to mention, nobody never seems to remember Moottorilinnut!

The second favorite 7" in my collection after Y Diawled. Flawless. Shame the direction they took on the follow up. The Zone Zero single is among the best as well.
