Power Metal fans?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I suggest a power metal thread. I know there are a few other metal oriented threads but those are all filled with mostly black, thrash, and death metal.

 

I propose a full on power metal thread.

 

 

To kick things off an underrated band.

Why is this thread getting no love?

 Since you listen to Blind Guardian I assume you listen to Iced Earth and have also heard of Demons and Wizards?
Some other bands that you might be interested in 
Axenstar
Sonata Artica
Falconer
Edguy
Powerquest
just a few that I can think of right now

I think it's because there's a big thread for Metal already that most of the Metalheads frequent. 

 

I'm a huge Power Metal fan. My favorite is probably Demons & Wizards (and of course the 2 bands that make up the super group) and Hammerfall...

 

Hammerfall is fantastic. I own almost all of their CDs. Crimson Thunder is a must own in any Power Metal fan's collection.

post #4 of 15

Yeah I know about the other metal thread but like the first guy said it is dominated by other genres of metal

Also I love the Hammerfall

Stratovarius is another one that is great

Man, ain't nothing wrong with anything on that list. and yeah Demons and Wizards is my second favorite Power Metal Band...BG being my first and cage being my second. The (let's talk metal) thread is almost exclusively Black and Death metal.

Ever hear of Power Glove? A powermetal band that does covers of nintendo songs and such.

I'm not too big on Power Metal but I have a huge soft spot for Sonata Arctica (barring their terrible new album) and Pharaoh.

If you are like me and love symphonic and epic focused Power Metal bands, you should definitely check those:

 

* Rhapsody of Fire (love every single song)

  -- check "Emerald Sword", "Land of Immortals", "Dargor, Shadowlord of the Black Mountain", "Tornado", also the lengthy ones: "Heroes of The Warterfalls' Kingdom", "Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness", there are so many...

* LT's Rhapsody (one album to date, masterpiece)

 -- check "Ascending to Infinity", "Dark Fate of Atlantis", "Excalibur"

* Dark Moor

 -- check "Atrurh for Me", "Before the Duel", "Devil in the Tower"

* Fairyland

 -- check "Ride with the Sun", "Score to a new Beggining"

* Dreamtale

 -- check "Between Love and Hate", "Fly Away", "Angel of Light", "Mortal Games"

* Dragonland's album Under the Grey Banner (this one is a power metal masterpiece, early albums are way worse IMO)

 -- check "Under the Grey Banner", "Dûrnir's Forge", "Shadow of the Mithril Mountains"

 

Also:

* Kamelot (The Black Halo, Epica)

* Nightwish (early albums)

 

Other songs I really like:

* Powerwolf - "We Drink Your Blood"

* Hammerfall - "Any Means Necessary"

* Iron Mask - "Morganna's Castle"

* Falconer - "Vargaskall", "A Quest for the Crown"

* Iron Savior - "Hall of Heroes"

* Masterplan - "Back for my Life"

* Sonata Arctica - "The Power of One"

* Crimson Glory - "Red Sharks"

 

 

to mention a few :)

Yea, it's definitely primarily death, thrash, and black, but I dig many forms of Metal, and I'm sure the dudes in there would show some love for Power. I'm not too savvy with the sub-genre, but I dig some Nightwish, Blind Guardian, and a few other bands mentioned.
