Yes.

At one point these euro/cyber trancers seemed very standard but all of a sudden I fint it to be a sort of rarity. So im looking for really driving tracks (not steroid trance) with fast peircing arpeggiated synth melodies. Not big supersaw chords ala Superstring/Rank1 etc. And dont post classics like ferrys barber remix etc. It should be a little more energetic, but no hard-trance either. The more piercing the better. And no Andy Blueman, thats tooo dramatic/cheese,

3.50

4.10.

Trance uploaders from the early days of Youtube were big into this kind of stuff

Solarforce - Kaleidoscope [2004]


Fire & Ice - Souvenir de Chine [2001]
I know you said not to post classics like Adagio for Strings, but dang this track really fits with the theme of the thread.

From my own uploads,

Tiddey - Get Away (Peran van Dijk Remix) [2006]


This was one of the cooler styles in trance imo. Not sure what made it go away. Maybe fast-paced arpeggiated synths just didn't mesh well with the lower tempo that late 2000s audiences wanted.
Get Away might have actually been one of the last great piercing/arpeggiated tracks.
