Just search them and listen. You'll know why they need to be here.

142 Pyramaze
143 Vandroya
144 Jorn
145 Knight Fury

Give these guys a listen; you wont regret it.

146 Thor
147 Civil War

Something between Sabaton and Wuthering Hights.

Awesome band both for the lyrics and the music

148 A Price On The Kings Head

Very new, but check out their Facebook, one of the best vocalists I've ever heard.

149 Wisdom
150 Wardrum
151 At Vance

At Vance is a German neoclassical/power metal band. They were formed by vocalist Oliver Hartmann (ex-Centers) and guitarist Olaf Lenk (ex-Velvet Viper) in 1998

152 Tyr Tyr Týr is a Faroese heavy metal band. Their subject matter revolves almost entirely around Viking lore, mythology, and history, taking their name from the Norse god of law and justice.

I love Tyr but it's not Power Metal. This is Folk Metal.

How are these guys not on this list they are utterly spellbinding!

153 Lonewolf
154 A Hero For The World
155 Orden Ogan

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

156 Nocturne Moonrise

Nobody really knows this band, being in the obscure Taiwanese Metal scene, but they are definitely awesome. Having some of the best guitar and keyboard solos as well as both male and female singing, they craft symphonic and somewhat medieval sounding songs with their lyrics and instrumentation. They are very obscure but definitely need more attention.

157 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". more.

Why is Slipknot here? this band is groove metal, not power metal. It's still a great band though.

The awesome Power-metal band from Italy. Listen Divine Gates, Part 1: Gate Of Hell (1999) and their most popular song Lady of the Sky.

159 Shadowkeep V 1 Comment
160 Luca Turilli

You know, the one before luca turilli's rhapsody, the band Luca Turilli worked on during the rhapsody hiatus. Prophet of the last eclipse was amazing!
