|Power Metal, also known as the coolest subgenre of metal|
|Power Metal kicks ass, some of you need to quit trying to be elitists and just jam the cheese|
|Keeper Of The Seven Keys Pt.1 is the best power metal of all time.|
|Agreed, it's up there. If I'm Alive is the song I'm thinking of, the intro is so damn powerful.|
|power quest |
|oh and Thy Majestie|
forgot about those guys
|Idk the cheesiest I get is like Bodom, Amarth, Wintersun melodeathy type stuff. Power metal's level of cheese makes me lactose intolerant.|
|I have a difficult time getting into power metal but nightwish is amazing. So much of it is too cheezy to tolerate|
|EAGLE FLY FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE|
|no one ever mentions Demons & Wizards and I'm not sure why, frankly I think its actually better than both Iced Earth and Blind Guardian.|
Demons & Wizards rule
|cause you have sick taste ov m/|
|@jSwantko I Haven't heard so much Demons and Wizards, but Iced Earth is not a power metal band for me....Also, Hibria is a great power metal band...|
@Venpts16 Thank you about the list...awesome list, i don't have in my list Sonata Artica and Rage...Iced Earth is power metal? i don't think so....
@jopower Great list, Father time is one my favorites but it's not in the top 20...
You are so right my friend..;)
|list needs some Lost Horizon and Hibria|
|@Keyblade33 Yeahh, i know....i said it in a comment, that Hibria is a great power metal band...Millenium Quest is my favorite song of them....|
|You really do need to listen to Lost Horizon though. They are the best band in the genre and it's not even close and it's coming from someone who adores Blind Guardian and especially Rhapsody of Fire. |
Some of my fav euro power metal tracks:
Helloween - March Of Time
Gamma Ray - One With The World
Blind Guardian - Bright Eyes
Running Wild - Conquistadores
Firewind - Head up High
|Nice list. Diggin' that Blind Guardian and Helloween. DEEECEEENNT!!!|
|18 is so fucking infectious|
I love these songs too..March of time is in my top 5 best helloween songs....and i just forgot bright eyes as i say in the first comment...
|only missing great band : kamelot|
