Best Power Metal Albums

The Top Ten

1 Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2 - Helloween

I think it is the best metal album from here to ETERNITY!

2 Nightfall on Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian

My favorites are, in no particular order:
Nightfall in Middle Earth by Blind Guardian
Land of the Free by Gamma Ray
Sonic Firestorm by Dragonforce
Virus by Heavenly (not really sure if that's progressive or power though)

3 Land of the Free - Gamma Ray
4 Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 - Helloween
5 Somewhere Far Beyond - Blind Guardian

An album that is a bit heavier, a bit progressive, a bit experimental. What can be better?
This album improved the idea of power metal in 1992.
It also contains the first symphonic metal song - Theatre Of Pain (or the 2nd after Rainbow's Eyes Of the World, 1979, but I prefer to call Rainbow song proto-symphonic metal). - Metal_Treasure

6 Horror Show - Iced Earth
7 Night at the Opera - Blind Guardian
8 Walls of Jericho - Helloween

Maybe the best album of all time.
Really deserves #1.
Thank you helloween and thank you god of power metal kai hansen.

9 Wintersun - Wintersun
10 The Black Halo - Kamelot

This album, combined with it's predecessor, Epica, is an awesome journey in an epic modern tale resembling Goethe's Faust
