    I don't agree entirely, but I thought it was funny. Power metal is great though, it's cheesy as Hell and I love it.

    DragonForce
    Iced Earth
    Blind Guardian
    Rhapsody
    Sabaton
    Grave Digger
    Sonata Arctica
    Demons and Wizards
    Edguy
    Helloween
    Stratovarius

    Ya dig?

    Why do I get the feeling this has potential to turn into a genre war :lol:

    Dragonforce are cool though, I met Hermann Li a few times, he seems to be quite a cool guy, fucking insane guitarist.

    Meh, I listen to some of it for laughs or when working out but from a musical standpoint power metal blows, man! That being said it can be a guilty pleasure of mine haha.

    The only power mteal band I can take seriously is Symphony X. They can talk about Medusa and The Odyssey and Dragons and make it sound COOL.

    I think Elvenking is cool, it's a mix between Power metal and Folkmusic

    I love power metal. Right up there as one of my favourite genres :p This is my list in order of preference, starting with the greatest ever :D

    Demons & Wizards
    Kamelot
    Iced Earth
    HammerFall
    Edguy
    DragonForce
    Blind Guardian

    Demons & Wizards is the ultimate blend lyrically and with sound. Great vocals also. Hansi Kürsch has much better vocals in Demons & Wizards than Blind Guardian in my opinion; much less scratchy and melodic.

    My friend is going to see Blind Guardian in London in September. $3000 trip. Hehe. If he's spending that much, they must be good. I'll have to check out more of their music.

    Slipknot is the greatest power metal band ever.

    I don't think Slipknot come under the power metal category do they? I dunno, someone care to answer?

    I probably should have mentioned I was being sarcastic. Hahaha.

    I was hoping for public outrage, really.

    Helloween, eh? I love "Mr. Torture".

    I think Dragonforce and Symphony X are probably my favorite power metal bands.

    I take it that from this quote and the title of this thread, you're a member of the Comatorium?

    Oh, and I really don't care for power metal under any circumstances unless it's to act really stupid in front of friends.
