The Top Ten Best Power Metal Albums

1 Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2 - Helloween

Best Power Metal Album...Nice vocal by Kiske

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

2 Nightfall in 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 Horror Show - Iced Earth

This is my second favorite power metal album and my favorite IE album wolf damien dracula frankenstein jerkyll and hyde and phantom of operea ghost are ausome

4 Land of the Free - Gamma Ray
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).

6 Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 - Helloween

More serious than Part 2

I love the second part but the first one is puro gold, need to be number one

Great Album - Master Kiske in Bestform

7 Night at the Opera - Blind Guardian
8 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

9 Wintersun - Wintersun


10 Walls of Jericho - Helloween

The quintessential power metal album, victim of fate, absolutely amazing guitar work.

This isn't a power metal album though

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

The Newcomers

The Contenders

11 Mandrake - Edguy
12 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth
13 The Metal Opera - Avantasia

A masterpiece by one of the greatest power metal projects. Farewell is beautiful.

14 Ecliptica - Sonata Arctica

Every single song in this album is fantastic! The vocals are top notch. The guitar solos are well made, the drumming is epic! Some of the songs in this album are remakes of demos they worked on for many years, the effort invested matches the product.
My favorite power metal album without question.

15 As the World Bleeds - Theocracy
16 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian

27 Imaginations from the Other Side - Blind Guardian

Why is this amazimg album so far down below the likes of A Night at the Opera and At the Edge of time? Both of those albums are among the worst albums in Blind Guardian's catalogue.

Why is this album so low on this list?

Every track? Every note!

Now this is the real deal
