|Fuck power metal|
|2,4,5,6,7 and 9 all did some great work|
|There's actually some very good power metal here...|
|"Fuck power metal"|
You just said this to try and trigger me didn't ya? :P
|nah dude just knows what's up|
|9......the kings of the genre|
|I am trying to fall in love with the genre again after diving deep into melo death and a bit into deathcore. If you have any recommendations, let me know|
|Sonata Arctica and Nightwish if you haven't heard them yet. |
And Twilight Force if you want some good cheese.
dragonland!!! 2006 album was ace.
|If you like 9, also check out Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond. 10 is good, but I prefer Hellfire Club. Stratovarius have not aged as gracefully as I'd hope they would have. Angra are just one of those bands that release some killer tunes, but as a whole their albums are certainly a mixed bag.|
Sonata Arctica's first three albums Ecliptica through Winterheart's Guild, are 3 of the best in the genre if you've never jammed them.
|Mostly power metal?? Every single band on here is power metal :D|
Have fun with 2, 4, 5, 7 and 9. Those are all super awesome and very unique.
8 is just standard power metal and not really worth the extensive attention, never got into 6 because I always thought Blind Guardian had a similar style but better executed (they're technically still great), and 3 is kinda fun when in the mood but it's all the same after a while, so also not really worth the time imo. Haven't really bothered with 10 since Avantasia was always a bit more to my liking and the stuff I heard from them was pretty boring (albeit admittedly catchy). That leaves 1 which are definitely cool, but I haven't heard enough by them to make a reliable statement.
|one thing this is missing is Theocracy - Mirror of Souls |
|Well, when they're all giving out recs I'm just gonna join the club.|
Versailles - Noble
Hibria - Defying the Rules
Sonata Arctica - everything up to Unia (even though I'm not a fan of the debut, but hey, most pm fans like it)
Avantasia's first two albums, like mentioned in my comment above
Serenity - Fallen Sanctuary
You won't get to hear any better power metal than Blind Guardian and Kamelot though imo
