|Best Power Metal Albums of 2021|
This List shows my favorite and in my opinion best power metal albums of 2021.
Power Wisdom Courage
Even if there are three Songs, two of them are more than 10 minutes, which makes it 32:19 minutes, in other other words an album. If you want to expirience an more different stile, than this is a nice pick.
Union Gives Strength
Since it is Galneryus I couldn't let this out of my list, even if from the tracks it isn't enough to be considered an album, since 2 tracks are covers from their older songs. Anyways it has very beautiful songs and if you like Galneryus you know what you get.
Call of the Wild
Powerwolf is a band I learned more about after going to one of their shows, they played 4 songs from this album, since it's their recent release. I personaly think it's one of their most balanced albums. It has a very tight sound, but on the same time the melodies are very beautiful.
Violence of the Skies
One my favorite cover arts and thats how it got me to listen to it, which shows how important art work is on making an album more interesting. Further on the music is as great and the riffs are SUPER they use alot of different styles from galop to more progressive and a lot of leads. Guy Miller's vocals also very special. If you want a more positive and full power album then this is what I recomend.
MinstreliX is a band from Japan, this is their fifth album and it's quite the banger, it has some similarities with Galneryus I would say since the lyrics are in japanese, but also the music and writing reminds me a lot of those kind of bands, like Sonata arctica, Rhapsody, Galneryus and so on... because there are also many symphonical parts in the songs. It is prety fast and the solos are fantastic, but well it's to be expected in such kind of music. I hope they put out more music like this in the future.
|15||Lords of Black|
Alchemy of Souls (Part II)
Entering the Abyss
Legend Of Valley Doom, Part 3
Creatures of the Dark Realm
Winterbane's release was a change because guitarist (Thalìa) drummer (Alberto Mezzanotte) and Bassist (Filippo Zavattari) left alltogether the band. This album featured their new lineup with all the spots covered, all the new members alredy feel to fit well to the band, so has the music with the fast beat and the handfull melodies that never get boring, also the short solos inbetween are more than in the past albums. I recomend this album because it is so outstanding and if you have listened to their previous stuff, than you surely have to listen to this since it follows the same good patern.
|9||Timo Tolkki's Avalon|
The Enigma Birth
For people that don't know, this band is timmo tolkki's (ex-stratovarius lead guitarist) new metal opera project, where different musicians are featured in every song, especialy vocalist's. It's like avantasia. The style of tolkki is obvious in this album and he has stated that he wanted to make albums with classical music influence, since it is what he likes and finds to have a lot of creative potential. The Enigma Birth is the fourth album and has guest vocalist's like Fabio Lione, James Labrie and so on, only Lione is featured in two songs. A symphonical album
V (Praeparatus Supervivet)
Insania is a power metal band from early 2000's as most bands, but sadly they didn't realese anything from 2007th album - Agony - Gift of Life. Then suddendly I stumbled on their newest album at a music store, I couldn't believe my eyes, then I did go back home and listened to it entirely and it surely made my day. Well I think Insania made a very good comeback, so I reccomend to listen and support this album.
|7||Black Soul Horde|
Horrors From The Void
A very outstanding album released also in 2021, I liked how this band experimented with other styles and this album still was a very fine outcome. A reccomended one for sure.
Wall of Skulls
I found about this band from recomendations and Wall of Skulls took my interest. So I sat down to listen and actualy I liked it very much, and so lately I started to listen to this bands previous albums, Wall of Skulls surely is one of their best works until now.
Since Edu Falaschi left Angra I didn't know what new stuff he did, until I found out he did solo projects and surpsingly this album was very enjoying. Also the work from the whole band, from aquiles priester, Fábio Laguna, Raphael Dafras, Diogo Mafra and of course Roberto Barros was phenomenal.
|4||Rhapsody of Fire|
Glory For Salvation
Glory for Salvation established from my opinion Giacomo Voli's position in Rhapsody and this album was even better than the previous, honestly I don't get the hate toward's the new vocalist, yes it's surely difficult to replace Fabio Lione, but still I think Giacomo did everything right as a new vocalist. The music improved too kind of since the last albums. Overall I think this is a well writen album.
The Reunion finaly released a new classic. I was waiting when the new album would be released and when it droped my expectations where fullfiled and I dont know what to say expect that it is a must listen.
The Mad King
When I saw that Warrior Path released a new album I was excited, but when I saw that the new vocalist would be Daniel Heiman I was finished emotionaly XD, one of the best vocalist I have heard in my life would come back since so many years for another record, and yes I was right this album would be a Masterpiece every song was a blaster. Definitely one of the best writen albums of this last decade's. Also not to forget that Bob Katsionis and Andreas Sinanoglou wrote sick stuff.
For Me NorthTale brought me the Classic Power Metal vibe with this album, pure epicness from first to last track, I enjoyed every bit. I consider this to be on of the best albums I have heard in all. Bill Hudson with his impresive guitar skills made this an eargasm, also vocalist Guilherme Hirose is another beast I never heard before and he makes this album so outstanding. Also a nice feature was Kai Hansen and his son Tim Hansen which played in song: Future Calls. For 2021 NortTale's and Warrior Path's Albums are my top most favorite albums.
