In this list I have tried my best and chose best solos possible. I've also taken some helps from other sites so I can add popular solos. I hope you'll like these.
The Top Ten
Yes, I also realize that power metal solos are overlooked but these solos are among the hardest to play in whole metal. They are very fast and usually long but they also must keep the melody. I would say power metal solos are pretty demanding. - Metal_Treasure
A lot of solos came on my mind. I didn't know which I have to put on number 1. Finally I added it on number 1. - zxm
This song is interesting because Children of Bodom are basically a death metal band and vocals are still death growls but I agree the song can be considered power metal with folk tunes. And yes, this is one of the best Alexi solos. Keyboards solo is also great. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, I've heard the song. This song has an awesome solo. The starting of solo kinda reminds me of Warfaze's Boshe Achi outro solo. Very fast licks. - zxm
Guys, please give a listen to this solo - it always reminds me of a taking off plane (3:00-4:00).
General info: fast solo on twin lead guitars, about 40 seconds long. This would be at least in my top 5. - Metal_Treasure
It has 4 distinct solos, or 4-13 solos because the 4th solo has 8-9 mini-solos in it. - Metal_Treasure
Just listen to that solo... Oh yeah
It's almost 2 minutes long, fast and awesome. - Metal_Treasure
One of my favorite solos by them, fast and about 1 minute long (2:30-3:30) - Metal_Treasure
This band is one of the best for solos, if not the best currently. I think their twin lead guitars are awesome.

About 30 seconds long but it's very fast (4.00-4.30). - Metal_Treasure
