Thread: Power Metal

  1. #1

    Default Power Metal

    Hey guys, I searched this topic and didn't find any threads, so I apologize if this has been done. I'm Just wondering what your thoughts on Power Metal are. If you like it, what are some of your favorites? I personally like Power Metal a lot, and my favorite is definitely Sonata Arctica, but I also like Iron Maiden, Hammerfall, Edguy, Dragonforce, Stratovarious and Kamelot a lot just to name a few.

    Im not sure if there is a thread already either, but the mods will probably at least move it to the Thrash/Power/Prog metal subforum.

    Im not a fan personally, cant handle the vocals for the most part. And even if I could ignore the vocals, I tend to enjoy prog over power metal. Which those genres seem to mix anyway sometimes...

    I think Symphony X is the only band I dont mind out of this area of metal, and they are still iffy for me.

    Ahh good point, I saw the Thrash subforum but didn't realize progressive and power metal where in a sub forum, my apologies, I'm still getting used to the layout of the forum.

    Symphony X is alright, I saw them live when they were part of the Gigantour about 4 years ago and they were alright live. I tend to view them as more progressive but I'm not one to argue over the differences between the infinite sub-genres in metal.

    Im a huge fan of Dragonforce. HUGE. I ****ing love that band. Sad that their singer just left. It kinda takes the effect from a band if the singer gets replaced. But we will see with their upcomming album.

    Wow I didn't know the singer left. He was hysterical when I saw them in concert, a bit annoying, but hysterical none the less.

    Yeah. Well they were unable to work together due to different musicstyles and they did all agree that he should leave. So noone is mad. But their new singer is pretth epic too .

    Thanks for posting that video! He does sound good, a bit lower pitch then the originial (although he does get way up there at the end of the video), and doesn't look like as big of a douche as the other singer
