Top 10 Power Metal Bandsslashz
The Contenders: Page 10
Surely, not vastly known for being specifically a 'power metal' band any more but they did, in fact, begin as a power metal band and their music of that genre exceeds a lot of those in the western mainstream. Now that they are considered 'world music' due to their variety and pure brilliance, I think it would be unfair if they took 1st on this list, so, there.
X Japan is really cool but not exactly Power metal, more like speed metal?V 1 Comment
I can't put into words how much I love this band. Many people claim they are mocking the power metal genre, which they are, but I disagree with people who say they don't take themselves seriously. such life and enthusiasm in every song, epic lyrics about an alternative medieval Scotland where dragons and medieval wizards rule. a nerds perfect escape from modern society.
A great band, every song a battle hymn or epic tale enveloping the listener into a world of space knights and ridiculously awesome lore. Every beat is a call to arms, your heart pumping in rhythm to albums of adventure and a knowing parody of the futuristic late 20th century settings imposed in many older sci-fi RPGs. I have busted no less than 10 pairs of pants whilst enjoying and losing myself in a euphoric sense of pure and unrivaled, power fueled bliss, and do not intend to stop at that number. The lyrics are so ridiculously humorous and inspiring, I cannot help but both laugh and be frozen in awe. Truly, power metal in its most awe rendering distilled, if somewhat hyperbolic, form.
UNICORN INVASION - Prawnstar
This band brought me to the world of metal
such good melodie
my favourite is Universe on fire of the album Space 1992
Versailles and Sonata Arctica are my favorites, love them. Seen both live and they were great.
Versailles is a great band. They play a very different power metal.
Hizaki and Teru are god guitar players, and Yuki is an awesome drummer. I don't like Kamijo's voice too much, but it's ok.
Heck yeah, Versailles are amazing! Too bad the bassist died, though. They should get back together!
