Ehh...I'd consider Iced Earth more thrash than power metal, but they're definetely very epic.

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.

I don't get offended that easily, but rather amused
was just so lazy that I hit the "Sarcasm"-button instead of the "Witty reply"-button
but sarcasm doesn't come off too well in internet, especially if you don't know me


and you shouldn't care if someone doesn't like your favourite band, I couldn't care less if someone says "HOLY SHIT, Blind Guardian are the most overrated piece of crap ever in the omniverse", I just think that "oh well, it's their loss"

but seriously, Sonata Arctica are one of the most well known bands in Finland and get a lot of exposure, you'd know it if you lived here



I'm too lazy to put those emoticons there, so just to be clear, I ain't got anything against you, I'm just tired of Sonata Arctica and that's it

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.


You can like Sonata Arctica as much as you want, we don't actually care, but keep in mind that they aren't original nor are they a good example of their genre. Sonata Arctica is one of THE most well-known metal bands that there is. You don't need a 'true knowledge of music' (IMO, if you have a 'true knowledge of music' you're likely to be put off Sonata Arctica because they're so bland) and there's a difference between 'I have an open mind' and 'I listen to any and all crap that I come across'

Good one, shit talking a guy on here (Kepulix) who has easily one of the largest knowledges of power metal, and proclaiming a completely run-of-the-mill rubbish band like Sonata Arctica as the best power metal band. You look like a ******. Tantamount to me saying 'Trivium is the best thrash band ever! Slayer are no good! Thrash Metal FTW!!!!'


Anyway to make this post helpful everyone should listen to Savage Grace - Master of Disguise: the definitive (and one of the best) power metal albums ever. Also pay close attention to the cover (which I can't post here)

The proper classification is Ice Metal. Iced Metal is also acceptable.

How do people like Sonata Arctica? I find them quite generic. Overly generic, if I may.

Admittedly the first few of their albums were typical power metal, with the catchy keyboard riffs and sing along choruses, but Reckoning Night was a solid album.

Too bad they went and made Unia after that.

They're decent but they both try way too hard trying to be Blind Guardian
