Famous power metal band. I think they should be on top of the list. - zxm
Well, all power metal is melodic by default but if you mean the best power metal bands who play softer power metal, then OK. - Metal_Treasure
I am a massive fan of Tobias Sammet voice and not necessarily of the band's softest songs. I believe Sammet is the best singer on this list. - Metal_Treasure
