Top 10 Power Metal Bands


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Salamandra
122 Twilightning

Severely under-rated band... Excellent vocals, articulate guitar work, a drummer who can keep up with the rest of the band... And all tied together with such well written lyrics that even after 5 years of listening, I still find interpretations and themes in songs I thought I already had all figured out. If you like power metal, these guys are worth your time.

I've been listening to power metal for 10 years and nothing I've heard came close to these guys. Great vocals, epic guitar work. It's sad how underrated this band is. Perfection!

123 Evertale
124 Arion
125 Grand Magus

I would be subjective if I were to give an opinion on this guy. All I can say is that they are really underrated or simply not known, but there guys deserve a top 20 in my opinion. Listen and see for yourself.

126 Manticora

This band is surprisingly great.
After a long search for a new great power metal
Band, POOF.
I found Manticora
Song:the chance of dying in a dream; great song
Album:darkness with tales to tale; just hear this album.

127 WarCry

One of the best Spanish bands

128 Voyager

Saw Voyager open for Rhapsody of Fire and was totally hooked from then on. The 'Meaning of I' album released in 2011 is one of my favorite metal albums of all time. Not too many power metal bands have a female guitarist who can shred like Simone Dow.

129 Bejelit

Heavy-Power metal band from Italy

130 Horizon
131 Battlelore
132 Saidian
133 Kotipelto
134 Riot

Some respect to this great band! They must be in top ten, totally worth it! And they bring out some special stuff as "wings are for angels","riot","crawling" in their last albums..

135 Johnny Lokke

Great power metal similar to Dio and Iron Maiden from the middle of the USA.

136 Innerbeauty

I think this band is symphonic/gothic but this band can categorized as power metal, you must hear that song.
The vocalist is female and that is Indonesian Band

137 Crystallion

I think these guys deserved to be higher up this ranking. Poor marketting!
