    Like somebody said earlier, let's not kid ourselves. Germany has most of the biggest and most succesful power metal bands. And although success doesn't always equal good, in this case it does: Helloween, Gamma Ray, Blind Guardian, Avantasia, Edguy...

    My native country Finland is second on my list. Sweden is maybe the third. Speaking of Italy, I haven't heard enough power metal coming from that direction to make final conclusions. Rhapsody is still the only band I am really familiar with (and of course Luca Turilli's solo projects but It's almost the same).

    I think if you look at it from a band ratio perspective Italy is the top power metal country. The only popular metal bands that emerge from Italy are power metal such as Rhapsody, Labyrinth, Vision Divine, Secret Sphere, Derdian e.t.c.. Germany and Finland have a huge metal spectrum though they probably have more power metal bands.

  • Id put Germany first

    Helloween, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Blind Guardian, Running Wild, Rage, Stormwarrior, Grave Digger, Metalium, Iron Savior, Primal Fear , Wizard, Freedom Call and about a million others.

  • power metal : Sweden. Italy , Germany
    melodeath/folk : Finland :D

  • Helloween, Gamma Ray, Edguy, Greave Digger, Blind Guardian, Rage... definitively Germany Rules.

    Mmm... Finland too...

  • You forgot Running Wild :o

  • Definately would have to be Germany first, I think enough people have probably listed the bands :P

  • In my opinion, I consider to Spain the best country of this sort, because I grew with them and in addition they have very good quality. greetings!

    So let me return...

    So let me die
  • Germany or Finland,
    and Italy (RoF) and Sweden (HammerFall) of course

    Scandinavia and germany and the fans in south america ;-)

    No one leaves you
    When you live in their heart and mind
    And no one dies
    They just move to the other side
    When we're gone
    Watch the world simply carry on
    We live on laughing and in no pain
    We'll stay and be happy
    With those who have loved us today
