HERE IN DREAMLAND WE WILL NOT OBEY THE MASTERS!
Everything about this song is definitive power metal. The blinding guitar solos, the fist pumping chorus, the fantastic lyrics. It's the best.
Just the best metal song ever written
The intro attracted the hearts of listeners. I can guess. - zxmV 4 Comments
The song that made me love power metal! It has no bad parts, it's simply epic! Blind Guardian for the win!
This song describes the greatness of power metal everything was amazing the story.. The guitars.. The vocals but also there are many great power metal bands like night wish, hellowen, rhapsody, dragonforce, avantasia - nooreldeen
You know how when you love a song so much you just wanna keep listening to it over and over again until you don't like it anymore? Same thing here. Thing is, you won't ever hate this song, it's too good.

This song is absolutely amazing and deserves to be higher. DragonForce is a truly awesome band. This song has major an epic guitar solo and sick riffs. I cannot better describe the essence of power metal other than this song.
Of all the rest in this category, this song is my favorite one. Woke up everyday with energy ever since listening to this song for quite a while. The drumming in this song is too bloody awesome! I love the sound of the double bass so much.
Why is this so damn low, this song is without doubt a masterpiece and Dracula by Iced Earth is also awesome...
I'm a huge fan of crazy guitar solos so yeah, not much of a competition for meV 16 Comments
Should be in the 1st place
Favourites from the list: I want out, nemo, rebellion in dreamland, full moon, dr stein... I think is too much blind guardian and rhapsody in the list... Where's sabaton?!
The song that probably signified that power metal is here and forever
This song isn't power metal, it's simply heavy metal. - somekindofaguyV 7 Comments
It's hard to describe this song in a way that doesn't just sound like gushing. Objectively, I feel like it's possibly the best distillation of old school power metal feeling with the newer style of power metal orchestrations and symphonic overtones. It's cheesy, but not to the point of being abrasive or ridiculous, even to someone who is not accustomed to the general hamminess of the genre.
Perfect. It's all perfect. This song has 2 parts, and they are both amazing! Nothing is missing, this song has EVERYTHING! Awesome guitars, awesome piano, awesome voice and backing voices (listen to the last 4 minutes), awesome 2 guitar solos, awesome drum solo, and even a piano solo. An other point is the amazing story behind the song, about Gabriel and his sister, Anna, and the exceptional lyrics!
As said before, it is hard to describe this song. What is hard is not getting excited when you hear it. It is like watching the sky crack open and hell arising just to collide in front of you. Great song for training, running, reading, before sleeping and whatnot.
This song is so beautiful. This is the highest peak power metal can get. Have listened to almost every song in this list, but this song just hit's me in the feels.V 2 Comments
One of my favorites, from my favorite group. The song, besides Stratosphere, that introduced me into power metal.
Song is like made from defeated Angels. We humans shall overcome our oppressors.
Stratovarius - the only true power metal band. This is one of the best songs.
Everything from Stratovarius is masterpiece..V 9 Comments
I love this song. I love Rhapsody of Fire
It's so hard to pick one Rhapsody of Fire song, but in my opinion it should take all top spots on this list! Rhapsody of Fire is absolute perfection!
Oh, come on! Rhapsody of Fire is the ultimate power metal band.

Time Stands Still, a master piece by Blind Guardian. The song is about an event from one the greatest books of all time The Silmarlion, the song sings of the battle between the King of the Noldor, Fingolfin, and the Dark Lord Morgoth. Fingolfin rides alone to the gate of Angbad, also known as the iron hill and challenges the most terrible and evil being all of middle earth, Morgoth, to whom Sauron of the Lord of the Rings was but servant. The Dark Lord accepts the challenge and rises like an great tower before the Elvenking. Morgoth descends on Fingolfin like a thunderstorm, smiting the ground with lightning and renting the earth below. Fingolfin evades these mighty blows, and wounds Morgoth several times, until the dark lord's blood flows like rivers and fills the craters in the earth. Eventually, Fingolfin stumbles and fall into a crater because of the ravaged earth, and Morgoth pins him under his foot. As Morgoth crushes the valiant warrior under his foot, Fingolfin, with his last ...more

This song is pure SH***********T!
It really sucks.
Eagle fly free should be somewhere here
This song is amazing from beginning to end. Definitely deserves a spot on the top five. Just listen to Jens Johansson's fantastic keyboard intro: it's nothing short of a masterpiece.
Stratovarius rock! They are the best band ever!
Good song, not the best of Stratovarius but a very melodic one
Absolutely this is the best song I was and I will hear it EVER
Come on, at least ONE HF song in the Top 10, they brought Power Metal back!
THIS IS THE BEST POWER METAL SONG EVER RECORDED! THE VISION'S SO CLEAR: WHEN DAY AND DREAM UNITE THE END IS NEAR. YOU'D BETTER BE PREPARED!

Absoltely perfect. The amazing mix of fast guitar solos, soaring vocals and fantastical lyrics create one of, if not the most "epic" song I have ever heard.
How is this not #1?
This is not only the best power metal song but may be the best song ever.
A lot better than the rest in that top 10
One of the best songs of all time. (if not the best)
The greatest helloween song.
GreatV 2 Comments
It is not real definitely power metal but for me it is the best song in the world!
A lot of songs here are both on power and symphonic metal list. usually these songs are mix of both. - zxm
The first time I heard this song I was absolutely amazed at how good it was, I could not stop re-playing it, it's just astonishing, I've heard it so, so, so much by now and I'm still not tired of it, just listen to it, you won't regret it... Unless you hate having amazing music stuck in your head, of course.
I re-played this song so many times that I even watched the video that came with it on YouTube
Saw this song live this week. Honestly, I can't think of a song that beats it.
Epic song one of my favoritesV 5 Comments
Awesome song, the chorus "Die, die, die tonight, sanctified with dynamite." is awesome!
The only songs I like better than this one are from the same band, so keep doing what you're doing, Powerwolf
How Is it possible? Just 2 Powerwolf musics hear?
Those guys are simply the bestV 2 Comments
This is a genre-defining song. It has all the aspect of power metal. Even people who don't like power metal likes this song.
"Even people who don't like power metal like this song" (quote) That is spot on, told my friend to listen to the song yesterday and he genuinely enjoyed it. I am so glad that such music exists in time of trashy pop songs. The song is just magical, played it 15 times yesterday and it'll never get old.
This is a unique song, magical and beautiful. I think it should be at #1.
And who else can write such a line? - "Nightfall quietly crept in and changed us all."
This is poetry of high class, God bless Hansi. - Metal_Treasure
