Top 10 Songs to Get You Into Power MetalMetal_Treasure Some of the best power metal songs are not on this list because they are too long, too complex, too progressive or just too fast for beginners.
But it depends on the level of the beginner - if you are new to metal but already like Iron Maiden for example, power metal wouldn't be a problem.
I also tried to include typical power metal songs and not the best songs by these bands because some songs by power metal bands aren't typical power metal songs.
Power metal is fast and epic but it's very melodic and not very heavy. It's not extreme. It usually has great clean vocals and guitar work.
The Top Ten
Getting into power metal is very easy. I got into it very quickly. But yeah, it's a very good song to start with. The chorus itself will do the work. - zxm
This is a very typical power metal song, one of the most typical ones on this list - its tempo, drum beat, high pitched vocals, etc. - Metal_Treasure
Yes, This song can be a very good start for Power metal - Ananya
To me this is the most beautiful power metal song. - Metal_Treasure
This song is longer but it's not very heavy or fast and I think it would be OK. This song is actually progressive power metal. Christian progressive power metal. - Metal_Treasure
Ok, it's time to try a faster song - it's still very melodic and the chorus is catchy. - Metal_Treasure
This song is so Iron Maiden-ish: gallop and Tobias Sammet voice resembles Bruce Dickinson's. - Metal_Treasure
This is also long and epic but not very heavy or fast. - Metal_Treasure
I agree it would be easy because the melody he sings is very poppy. I realise that some beginners are people who listened to pop music until yesterday and they just can't get into more typical metal songs for one day. It takes time. Yes, beginners would relate to this song easier but I don't think it's the singing that would attract them - it's the melody of the vocal line which is basically pop. - Metal_Treasure
Yes I added this because it would be a good start for Power Metal - christangrant
Agreed with christangrant, I listened this song after getting into power metal. but its good for starters. I think the singing of this song was the thing to attract listeners. - zxm
With additional vocals from Hansi Kursch ("my life is chamber of..."). - Metal_Treasure
This song became my favorite BG song from hearing it for first time. - zxm
Thanks for adding this song, zxm. It's one of my favorite Blind Guardian songs but I didn't add it myself because I feel it's a heavier and more complex song that may not be suitable for beginners.
I think it's a pretty odd song - music, lyrics and vocals. I needed to listen to it several times but if somebody understands and likes this song, he/she isn't at the lowest beginner level.
Also, sometimes I think this song isn't exactly power metal. - Metal_Treasure
The song that got me into power metal as well as metal in general. Perfect for beginners.
I do LOVE this song but I don't think it's power metal. It's just heavy metal. - Metal_Treasure
It can inspire a suicidal person.
Just like Through the Fire and Flames a good start for beginners (This and Through the Fire and Flames got some people into Power Metal cause they were in Guitar Hero) - christangrant
I may get some trouble for putting this one on the list, but Iron Maiden are a major influence to power metal as we know it today, and for anyone who wants to start listening to power metal, or for anybody who is a fan, this band should be one of the many you check out.
Yes. They are innovative, heavy, and whenever I listen to this one, it seems to shake the ground.
