Best Power Metal Songs

The Top Ten
1 Rebellion in Dreamland - Gamma Ray Rebellion in Dreamland - Gamma Ray Cover Art

Everything about this song is definitive power metal. The blinding guitar solos, the fist pumping chorus, the fantastic lyrics. It's the best.

Inclined to agree this is indeed the number 1 power metal song! Not an easy choice though!

Not only the top pm song, but also a top song overall... it's easily a Bohemian Rhapsody level, if not better

An amazing hymn! The best by far, Kai Hansen is a Mastermind!

2 Mirror, Mirror - Blind Guardian Mirror, Mirror - Blind Guardian Cover Art

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

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.

The song that made me love power metal! It has no bad parts, it's simply epic! Blind Guardian for the win!

Their most generic song yet it's still heavier than the majority of power metal.

3 The Seven Angels - Avantasia The Seven Angels - Avantasia Cover Art

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.

4 Eagleheart - Stratovarius Eagleheart - Stratovarius Cover Art

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.

"heart of an eagle
He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world an finds the sun
Spreading his wings above all the sorrows
The glory of eagleheart"

The best songs of Stratovarius...

5 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian Cover Art

Having heard so much power metal songs, this is still my favourite one after almost 10 years, its perfect in every way, the instrumets, the chours, the story in it, absolutely love it, deserves to be in top 10.

One of the best metal songs ever written and performed. Blind Guardian for the win!

Most awesome power song ever!

The best song ever written

6 Emerald Sword - Rhapsody Emerald Sword - Rhapsody Cover Art

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!

This song has the best chorus in all metal! All members of this band are exceptional musicians... This song has to be higher on this list!

Very powerful intro, memorable chorus, and the most important, the sound of the chorus makes this songs very special.

It is like the best music screw whoever thinks this is not the best power metal song

7 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce Cover Art

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.

Yes. There is just so much yes in this awesome song! Imagine playing Doom while listening to this! Imagine how much more awesome the game would be with this song.

Definitely one of the best songs in history of metal. It simply reaches virtuosity, not to mention the energy it can transmit. A POWER metal song, quite literally.

8 I Want Out - Helloween I Want Out - Helloween Cover Art

This my list
1. I Want Out - Helloween
2. Mirror, Mirror - Blind Guardian
3. Emerald Sword - Rhapsody
4. Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce
5. Black Diamond - Stratovarius
6. Rebellion In Dreamland - Gamma Ray
7. Elvenpath - Nightwish
8. The Dragon Lies Bleeding - Hammerfall

10. The Bard's Song - In the Forest - Blind Guardian

Not power metal, it's a mistake to call this song power metal... it's almost a commercial '80s song, but I like it, and it's still metal.

The original breakthrough power metal song... The one that really caught everyone's attention back in the 80's. Should be #1

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?!

9 Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) - Blind Guardian Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) - Blind Guardian Cover Art

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

10 Warriors of the World United - Manowar Warriors of the World United - Manowar Cover Art

It's a great song. But its not power metal. Its just traditional heavy metal.

What do these people have in their head? The kings of Metal are back in town!

This song is amazing. End of story. It's almost TOO good.

WE'RE WARRIORS, WARRIORS OF THE WORLD

The Contenders
11 Blood Bound - Hammerfall Blood Bound - Hammerfall Cover Art

It should be at least in the top 5, hammerfall revived power metal.

Come on, at least ONE HF song in the Top 10, they brought Power Metal back!

This should be in the top 5!

Great power metal song.

12 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween Cover Art

I am surprised this is at #13. I truly believe this should be in the top 3, along with And Then There Was Silence / Blind Guardian and Rebellion in Dreamland / Gamma Ray.
These are epic power metal songs.

Without Helloween no power metel period. and this song is one of the most epic! any Helloween song should be number1 but maybe this one for sure!

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.

The best song ever, doesn't matter the music genre. This song is just unbeatable.

13 Black Diamond - Stratovarius Black Diamond - Stratovarius Cover Art

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.

This needs to be in the top 3. Stratovarius > Gamma Ray = Blind Guardian > Helloween > Edguy = Rhapsody > rest of power metal bands.

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

14 Eagle Fly Free - Helloween Eagle Fly Free - Helloween Cover Art

I cannot believe this isn't top 5!
Maybe the greatest helloween song maybe
The greatest song of all time.

How is this not #1?
This is not only the best power metal song but may be the best song ever.

One of the best songs of all time. (if not the best)
A masterpiece!
The greatest helloween song.

A lot better than the rest in that top 10

15 Heroes of Our Time - DragonForce Heroes of Our Time - DragonForce Cover Art

Warriors forever glorious we are victorious

We'll all find our sacrifice tomorrow

Best epic fantastic song ever

Great Song, full stop.

16 Nemo - Nightwish Nemo - Nightwish Cover Art

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.

17 Unholy Warcry - Rhapsody Unholy Warcry - Rhapsody Cover Art

This solo is amazing

18 Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy Cover Art
19 Stargazer - Rainbow Stargazer - Rainbow Cover Art

The song that started it all. Dio's best vocal performance. Perfection.

Should be no1.Rainbow and dio are the G.O.A.T.

20 Inside the Winter Storm - Dragonforce Inside the Winter Storm - Dragonforce Cover Art

VERY talented group dragonforce

21 Full Moon - Sonata Arctica Full Moon - Sonata Arctica Cover Art

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.

One of the songs that made me love Sonata Arctica since the first listening. This one and Wolf and Raven were my very first 2 power metal songs. The rest is just history. SA forever!

I had to come looking for this. Not surprised that it's this far below. I just heard it a week ago, just got to get some more people to hear it, and it will surely climb the ranks.

I think there should be even more Sonata's songs especially from Ecliptica, sadly they are not what they used to be anymore but that album is just a masterpiece.

22 Melancholy - Iced Earth

The best Iced Earth song, and one of the best power metal songs ever. It deserves to be higher.

212? This is one of the best power metal songs I've ever heard.

23 Watching Over Me - Iced Earth Watching Over Me - Iced Earth Cover Art
24 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth Cover Art

Thrashy Epic Heavy Metal, not power.

25 Death is Just a Feeling - Avantasia Death is Just a Feeling - Avantasia Cover Art

Crazy song, but also a smasher, definitely the best on the album!
