24 The Bard's Song - In the Forest - Blind Guardian

If you want to know something special about that song, just go to YouTube and search The Bard's Song at Wacken Live. I bet you will be mute after watching it.

Tomorrow will take us away, far from home, no one will ever know our names... But the Bard's songs will remain.

This is the best ballad ever made. Hansi's voice in the many versions of the is simply AMAZING. This goes right above Mirror Mirror and Nightfall for me.

25 Watching Over Me - Iced Earth
26 Primo Victoria - Sabaton

What better power metal than songs about REAL people?

Sabaton rules all the ways. - RoutaMetal

Through the Gates of hell!

A killing intro, a killing solo, a killing vocal! The best ever!

28 Sacrimony - Kamelot
29 Halloween - Helloween

It's amazing power metal song. This is cult for the power metal listeners.

The one of the keeper's trilogy song, and its the great power metal song, it should be top 5

30 Sons of Winter and Stars - Wintersun

This is possibly the best example of musical perfection

Not actually Power Metal, just Symphonic Death Metal. - Penguincamp

31 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
32 Amaranth - Nightwish
33 Gates of Babylon - Rainbow

The birthplace of power metal. This song is a masterpiece - from the power metal masters and inventors of the subgenre (Dio and Ritchie Blackmore).
This is The Power Metal Bible and pretty much the song that defined power metal subgenre back in the 70s, together with another Rainbow song - Stargazer. - Metal_Treasure
