178 Heed
179 Sinbreed

This band is moderately new only releasing two albums "when worlds collide. And shadows. Now don't take this the wrong way but in terms of originality, these guys are more of the same when it comes to power metal. BUUUT!... In terms of having their own musical style, it's more than evident that when you are listening to Sinbreed, YOU ARE LISTENING TO SINBREED!... My favorite part of this is the lead singer (formalry of seventh avenue) sounds a lot like Bruce Dickinson of iron maiden. And trust me I loooves me some maiden. Not only that!, but a third of the band consists of the members of Blind Guardian!. So overal this is a solid band. No frills that will make you fall over you're chair. But enough to make you headbang and sing along the corasses the whole way through.

180 X Japan X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi.

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?
