I've spent the last few days working my way through the Blind Guardian discography. What a band. I could spend hours writing about how much I love them.

I need to see them live in a proper gig. I saw them at Bloodstock, but festivals aren't really the same.

Heaven's Gate is da shit, especially their debut and that EP.

I've got a soft spot for "Best Days of My Life" for some reason.

Also, hearing this song for the first time in forever when I popped the album on my record player was incredible.

I was strolling through college the other day listening to that song on my mp3 player. Felt like such a badass.

Who here listens to Rage? I've gotten into them a lot recently, and I'm looking for recommendations regarding which albums to get, since they have approximately a million. I've already picked up Welcome to the Other Side, but I want to grab another.

I don't know if any of you guys have heard of this one band, Wolf. But they're playing in ATLANTA in july. I would kill to go. SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAPE IT.

Who ever said power metal was gay or cheesey

Is there anyone still around from when MANLY was a meme here? Because this is manly as hell.

Blind Guardian, Symphony X, Firewind, Gamma Ray, Stratovarius are in this list my favorites.
Blind Guardian is really impressive especially in the last albums...
Isn't Dragonforce a powermetal band? Well, it's Speed Metal too. Same thing for Warmen..
Rhapsody is more than only Power Metal... but I don't really know their under-genre... (they describe themselves as Hollywood - neo-classical and Symphonic Metal; that makes a lot )

Lancer - solid new power metal from this year. euro-power metal back to its roots: melodic, catchy, using actual guitar riffs rather than just layering the symphonic cheese like most modern euro-power bands *cough* Rhapsody of Fire's new album *cough* . Reminiscent of early Helloween.

^that demo is so unlike the "usual" BG but really fun....doesn't sound like Hansi though?

Anyone have any good recommendations for like more aggressive, or even death metal influenced power metal bands? I recently got into Crimson Shadows who have a decent balance of power and death metal influences. Can anyone throw out some good recommendations in that respect? I am a fan of the soaring/melodic choruses of power metal but kind of want something with a bit more of an aggressive death metal type feel.

Destroyer 666 has a blackened thrash feel with sing a long type songs, specifically the albums Unchain the Wolves and Phoenix Rising.

Skeletonwitch does the same but to a lesser extent, and has more of an overt power / traditional metal base. The album Beyond the Permafrost would be the go to
HESSIAN HAREM
FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE HESSIAN CULTURE. STAY TRUE.

Try Ensiferum. Iron and Victory Songs are your best bets.
