Best Power Metal Songs

81 Gettysburg (1863) - Iced Earth

Most epic power metal piece I've ever heard of. It beautifully dramatizes the battle of gettysburg of American civil war. It consists three songs. The video is excellent. There is no other piece like this. Epic! - sayakbhattacharya

Actualy, this is more a heavy metal band than power metal. It's like if you vote Iron Maiden or Judas Priest as the best power metal bands, but my vote goes to this band. This is one of the best band ever and this song is so amazing. I saw also Dracula and Dante's inferno songs, but this one is really my favorite. Cheers!

82 Kill for Metal - Iron Fire
83 The Final Crusade - Iron Fire

Why so low ranked? This song is epic from the start to the end. Awesome intro and great guitar solo.

84 Arising Thunder - Angra
85 Rebellion - Grave Digger

Grave Digger! Best power metal song ever!

86 Stargazer - Rainbow

Rainbow is where power metal was invented. Two songs defined power metal subgenre in the 70s - Gates Of Babylon and Stargazer. But first and foremost these songs are masterpieces.
I'm surprised power metal fans don't know the history of their favorite subgenre, main steps of its development and the most influential musicians of this subgenre (Dio and Ritchie Blackmore).
Fans of other subgenres worship songs that are not even close to this masterpiece just because those fans appreciate and respect the first songs written within the relevant subgenre.
What's wrong with you power metal people... - Metal_Treasure

87 Your Time Has Come - Unisonic

88 The Bard's Song - Blind Guardian
89 Time - Wintersun

Wintersun is easily one of the best power metal bands. Power metal combined Whit Melodic death, Symphonic, and a little bit of Folk metal. Also the production is amazing.

Really, I actually doubt that this song and Sons of Winter and Stars are Power Metal. They may have a few influences, but they're really more Symphonic Death. - Penguincamp

90 For the Kingdom - Unisonic

Awesome song thought "your time has come "is better

Awesome consistent unisonic proves yet again...

Great! Cannot waiting for the Album

91 Angel of Salvation - Galneryus

I know I didn't vote for this one, BUT HOW IS IT ONLY #118!?! This should at least be in the top 100! - Penguincamp

Just listen to this song and you will understand...
