Top 10 Cover Songs by Power Metal Bands


The Top Ten

1 Don't Talk To Strangers - Blind Guardian

A perfect Dio cover. - Metal_Treasure

2 Kill the King - Jorn

Incredible Rainbow/Dio cover. - Metal_Treasure


3 Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! - Yngwie J. Malmsteen

A very impressive ABBA metal cover. Great vocals by Mark Boals, great guitars, interesting arrangement. - Metal_Treasure

4 Look At Yourself - Gamma Ray

A great Uriah Heep cover. I always thought the original was one of the 1st metal songs (1971) and Gamma Ray cover makes it more evident. The original was pretty fast for its time but Gamma Ray played it even faster and heavier.
Awesome vocals by Ralf Scheepers (currently singer for Primal Fear). - Metal_Treasure

5 It's a Sin - Gamma Ray

Pet Shop Boys cover. The original is a synth pop rock song but Gamma Ray made it sound pretty much like power metal. - Metal_Treasure

6 The Wizard - Blind Guardian

Another great Uriah Heep cover - Blind Guardian made it heavier and faster. - Metal_Treasure

7 Beyond the Realms of Death - Blind Guardian

Covering this iconic Judas Priest song is a true challenge. I like the emotion and power Hansi added to the choruses, especially his 2nd chorus gives me goosebumps. - Metal_Treasure

8 Flight of the Bumblebee - At Vance

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov cover (original is classical music). - Metal_Treasure

9 Angel of Death - Gamma Ray

A-mazing Thin Lizzy cover. - Metal_Treasure

10 Maniac - Firewind

Michael Sembello cover (Flashdance OST) - Metal_Treasure
