Top Ten Music Artists that Have Both Power Metal & Hard Rock Songssomekindofaguy
The Top Ten
Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force is a band, but its more likely an arrangement under his name. Like Ozzy Osbourne's first lineup (Blizzard of Ozz) or Secondhand Serenade (John Vesely). Though it doesn't matter of me anyway. Because every album is recorded by a team. - zxm
He's not a band though.
But he's mostly a neoclassical metal artists. But some of his songs sound a lot like power metal. Its because power metal and neoclassical metal have similarities. Especially in the solos. Neoclassical metal solos are mostly shredding, a lot of notes picked,fast. Where power metal is also same. The difference is that power metal more or less stays in a range. Its fast. Where neoclassical metal could be both fast and slow (average) sometimes. Power metal follows the speed metal picking technique, but neoclassical metal chord progression techniques. - zxm
