I've been listening a lot to Ozzy, Thin Lizzy, Badlands, Dokken and Sykes-era Whitesnake lately as well as stuff like Racer X, Vinnie Moore, Steve Stevens, Becker, Batten and Shawn Lane. Any recommendations?

Blaze (Japan) ..... not always 'shredding' leads, but tons and tons of great leads on top of great hard rock/metal songs.

I skip all the Shrapnel Records-stuff as most likely you know them already, but how about Lionsheart:

Reminds me a bit of Whitesnake Tongue era with Vai.

Well I don't know about shred, but since you mentioned stuff like Whitesnake I must mention a gem of an album that was evidently played with guitars on fire. Imagine Slip Of The Tongue, but multiply heaviness and string fanciness by four or five.

Awesomeness ensured by Mark Owers. Nobody really knew the guy...

Don't really know that much about the band, but this is a great song with great guitar-work.

And of course if you like Dokken, check first 2 Lynch Mob-albums too.

I think there should be a thread made for hard rock and AOR. Modify this one and you shall be rewarded!

How about Richie Kotzen? Ok, there's a bit bluesier touch, but so does Lynch Mob for example.

Too soft? Sure you've heard his first solo-album, he can shread ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM9rvusjr9Q Laughing ), but his more bluesy playing and singing are much better.

Combine leather with wolves and you get Leatherwolf. Triple axe band! Don't let the name fool you, this stuff rules (in the night).

The first two TEN albums are a fine example of 80s done right in the 90s. Hard rock so hard it's almost metal. Majestic!

I assume you know Warlord. Flashy guitarwork, good riffs.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kny71vvFJa4

Somewhere in the realm of hard rock/AOR, but nonetheless Roko's best album. Probably because of this song. HUGE.

Oh yeah and don't forget Helstar, Lazz Rockit ( Cities gonna burn and no stranger to danger), Leatherwolf. ALso heavy metal with virtuoso guitar playing. You may also like Cities and Chastain, another one is Shok Paris. Can't forget the first albums from Vicous Rumors wich has Vinnie Moore shredder supreme on them. He also has solo albums you would like. All Jag Panzer sounds up your alley as well.
