^ SA are awesome, but even now i still can't believe Jani had to leave. Elias seemed pretty awesome when i saw them live tho.

Other than SA, Primal Fear, Tarot, and Demons & Wizards are all awesome bands. Or if you like your power metal with cheese, double cheese and extra cheese, there's Manowar, Power Quest or Hammerfall.

Extra helpings of cheese are best served with Helloween and a side dish of Gamma Ray.

Wouldn't folk music be more appropriate?

Lol, no.

They supported Sonata Arctica on a recent tour, and they were inferior by far.

Sonata Arctica are extremely overrated and boring if you ask me, had to watch/hear them live twice this summer, they were playing in Tuska as well, but I didn't go there on Sunday


Blind Guardian all the way, though I have problems calling them power metal because they're far beyond that

also US power metal is awesome and way too overlooked

most power metal is sickeningly happy but Iced Earth and Blind Guardian are both incredible.

^lolz opinionzors!
Sonata Arctica aren't very well known, but hardly any of the bands discussed here are
they are, however, quite well known within the metal community, and they aren't all that different from the hundreds of other power metal bands out there

Actually, yes

Sonata Arctica are one of the most well known bands in Finland to be honest, you won't find many music listeners in here who don't know them

I see way too many Sonata Arctica and Children Of Bodom t-shirts every day
