Whiskers Top 25 Power Metal Bands V2

As I've increased my power metal library, i decided to make an rupdated lists of my top rr25 Power Metal Bands :)
1Sonata Arctica
Ecliptica


Will always be by #1 Band
2Helloween
Master Of The Rings


Even Andi Deris makes Helloween just a pleasure to listen too, many styles within the power metal genre and really don't disappoint no matter what they do
3Theocracy
Mirror Of Souls


Really want to hear more from these guys. Very underrated, people get put off by the whole cristian thing but it's not noticeable.
4Kamelot
The Fourth Legacy


Do i really need to say anything?
5Hammerfall
Glory To The Brave


Glory To The Brave. Buy It. Now.
6Blind Guardian
Imaginations From The Other Side


Some people might be in rage mode that they ain't in the top 5, not saying they aren't deserving, but i've just not heard quite enough of them yet to rate them higher, but i have loved what i've heard so far!
7Freedom Call
Eternity


If you like melody's like i do, you will love these guys.
8Edguy
Theater Of Salvation


Again like Blind Guardian, so far only heard their first 4 albums. But can tell the best is yet to come.
9Gamma Ray
Land Of The Free


Probably my 3rd Power Metal band i got into, they will always have a place in my heart.
10Stratovarius
Elements, Pt. 1


EAGLEHEART!
11Celesty
Vendetta


Last 2 Albums have been fantastic.
12Heavenly
Coming From The Sky


Very Underrated!
13Lost Horizon
Awakening The World


Like Theocracy, want to hear more. Starved for more.
14Dragonland
Starfall


Really like their blend of heavy and melodic
15Masterplan
Masterplan


Gotta love Jorn
16Labyrinth
Return To Heaven Denied


Just a chilled out breath of fresh air.
17Rhapsody Of Fire
Legendary Tales


No explanation needed.
18Firewind
Allegiance


Quite an overlooked band, not sure why. Guitar work from Gus is top notch
19Illusion Suite
Iron Cemetery


Very underrated. Most consider them progressive metal, but you ca hear their roots belong to Power Metal
20Angra
Rebirth


Great songwriting. Strong Melodys, everything you want from a Power Metal Band
21Primal Fear
Primal Fear


You can always hear the Judas Priest influence, but it's not a bad thing.
22Bloodbound
Unholy Cross


Another very underrated band. They don't do anything new, but they are great to listen to regardless.
23Galneryus
Advance To The Fall


Can be difficult to enjoy the vocals with the strong accent and lack of English but even at that, no one can deny they work well as a band.
24Dragonforce
Valley Of The Damned


Inb4RageFest. Look, i know they get a lot of hate, but if it wasn't for these guys i'd not have known of Power Metals existence, so i owe them that much. Plus the new album is toned down in speed and studio work and has a more natural feel.
25Avantasia
Angel Of Babylon


Don't know if i can really put them here as a band, but it's music nonetheless and would be higher up the list if i didn't feel they cheat thier way up. But still, you don't know power metal unless you own at least 1 Avantasia Album. As a side note, theres still a lot of bands i haven't discovered or heard enough of to make the list, but let me say, theres not any power metal band i've heard that i dislike.
