Top 10 Power Metal Bands


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Wuthering Heights

There is not a single band like Wuthering Heights. Their songs are an amazing combination of progressive, folk and power metal. Their song "The Mad Sailor" is what got me into metal. Listen to it, you'll know what I mean. Just do it. NOW!

82 Battle Beast

Since Manowar in my twentys this is the most heared band in my life. I love it!
Please, check it out!

HOW is this band so far down the list!?!?! THEY ARE AWESOME. the lyrics, vocals, drums, guitars, EVERYTHING! GET THEM HIGHER UP ON THIS LIST NOW PEOPLE!

83 Visions of Atlantis

I'm really glad to see Visions of Atlantis on the top 100 list, they're great
Lost, and The Secret are two of my favorite songs

84 Labyrinth

Probably the most underrated band ever. Great sound, songs and musicians. Better the rhapsody, by far...

85 Axxis
86 Edenbridge
87 I Am I

The former singer of Dragonforce comes back with a new band, epic music, and the awesome new album Event Horizon. Search up their song "Silent Genocide" and you will be blown away.

I wonder why this band isn't popular. ZP Theart is in this band, and his voice is just awesome.

88 Spellblast

A combination of folk and metal. Very unique.

89 Jag Panzer

Unacceptable. This Colorado-based power metal bands shreds hard and deserves way higher than 81.

80th place? Are you kidding me? One of the first power metal bands and one of the best...

#95? This is inexcusable.

My top 5:
1. Manilla Road
2. Jag Panzer
3. Helloween
4. Savatage
5. Queensryche (early)

90 Holy Knights

Their latest album Between daylight and pain is just EPIC.. And best power metal album of 2012

91 Machinae Supremacy

While Machinae Supremacy has been my all time favorite band since 2009, they've pretty much created their own genre: SID metal. While they do have a lot of power metal influences, they are something completely different, they don't really belong on this list. They are in a class of their own.

A pretty unknown but epic Metal Band. Actually it's called "SID Metal" because they use C64 Sounds to improve their music but I think it counts as power metal as well. ;) Really epic sounds. They definitely deserve to be up there in the top 30.

Listen to some of their songs like 'Conveyor' or 'Hero' and you will be impressed. In my opinion their best album is still "overworld" from 2008 but they also made the epic soundtrack for the game Jets'n'Guns and some songs for Deus Ex. What else can you expect?

How the hell is orden ogan not higher on this list, their technical mastery of power, folk, and progressive metal is insane!
