I enjoy some power metal, and would you call 3 Inches of Blood power metal? Maybe thrashy power metal..

I call em power metal all the time. They got some ****ing epic lyrics.

My favorite power metal bands are Helloween and Iced Earth


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

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.

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

Quote by SonataFanica
Sonata Arctica is extremely UNDERrated and very interesting. Do you hear people on every streetcorner shouting, "LOLOLOLOL SONATA ARCTICA RULZ!!1!!!!" and that's just making you angsty? If so, I want to live there. Sonata Arctica isn't very well known at all. That doesn't make them 'underground' or anything, but I have never met another person that has known about them.

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'

Quote by SonataFanica
Okay, now that you have admitted to being an angsty little girl, there's nothing more to say on the matter.


POWER METAL FTW!!!!!!


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 retard. 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)
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Im sorry, I just don't see how you could argue that hardcore isn't metal. That just seems arrogant to me.

Yes, its its own kind of metal, but its still metal.

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.

Stratovarius.

Twilight Time was a great album, Episode as well. Visions was amazing and Infinite was pretty good. Elements was pretty solid, but some of their albums just have too many 'filler' songs.

I love power metal. My favorite genre, not just of metal, but of all music. Honestly, I can't tell you why either, they use the same damn drumbeat in every song and a lot of bands melodies and structures are shockingly similar, but I don't know something about it! it makes my ears happy, and it doesn't even matter how homosexual sounding some of the stuff is(like aquaria, but i still love it). It's rather odd.

LotF 2 has some great songs imo, like Empress (even if it's a copy of Accept - Princess Of The Dawn), Opportunity and especially Real World

But yeah, last year Helloween's Gambling With The Devil beat LofT 2

I used to be a huge power metal fan, now im only a power metal fan. Has anybody else heard of those obscure-generic-power-metal-bands like Olympos Mons or Cryonic Temple? Or am i the only one? I used to love those.

Power Metal can get really gay really fast. 90% of Power Metal is quite generic and lame sounding. But the remaining 10% is amazing and nothing less. BG occupies 9% of that by the way. Hellloween, Savatage, Stratovarius, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Heavenly, Falconer, etc. can go in the other 1%.
