But I don't expect you to realize that, as it takes a person with a true knowledge of music and an open mind to like the music they make.

were you being serious right there? because if so you've proven that you're a complete idiot. anyone who pulls the, 'it's just too complex for you to grasp!' card to defend their favorite bands looks like an idiot on normal terms. And when the band in question rights standard power metal (i'm not saying good or bad as i've barely heard them, but it's most certainly not 20 minute prog songs or avante garde) then it just looks utterly ******ed.

No, he made it clear that with my limited knowledge of music I simply can't comprehend the music of Sonata Arctica

Look, I didn't mean to offend you, and yes, I did look like an idiot making that post. Sorry.


But, you know, they're my favorite band. I got a little offended myself, if you get what I'm saying.

And with you making them seem like the power metal equivalent of Fall out Boy, that didn't help.

Blind Guardian is pretty much the only power metal I listen to, but it's ok as they make everything else irrelevant.




I'm kidding.

Rhapsody(of Fire), Elvenking, Sonata Arctica, and Outworld (I guess they are power).

Yep. Fairly good, but I dunno. I only have "special connections" with certain bands of this genre.

i see
i actually like them a bit more than Elvenking, mostly because i like the vocals better
Wyrd is still incredible though


as for power metal, besides BG of course, i've been really diggin Oracle Sun lately
they're not all that original, and not genre-defying in any way, but they make some seriously epic and catchy music

Dragonland have some absolutely amazing instrumentals. I'm not too fussed about most of their stuff, but when the singer goes for a tea break, they become brilliant.

Dragonland is absolutely fantastic. I love their album covers as well.

I don't listen to much power metal except some Jag Panzer and old Helloween with Kai Hansen on vocals.

Meshuggah isn't power metal in any sense of the genre.
