Best power metal country ?

  • Best power metal country ?

    I definetly think its Germany.
    Why ?
    Germany got loads and loads of good bands like Freedom Call, Brainstorm, Beautiful Sin, Galloglass etc etc.

    and so on.
    Remember this is just my opinion (no offence if someone doenst like real german melodic power metal)

    - DemonsLight

    So the deal is simple, you post your favorite country and explain whys that...

  • Sorry Crytal Ball are Swiss I thought?!

    But I agree, I think Germany is at the moment the greatest Metal country, there are some good bands, which have very own characteres

    Germany, Italy and Finland are the 'big 3' power metal countries, so I'd just go with them.

    Italy comes second with
    I thought they were from France..

    Speaking of which, France has a fairly decent PM scene, what with Heavenly, Adagio, Alkemyst, etc.

  • Hmm, maybe im mistaken then, i got lotsa bands from Italy and France wich make power metal :)
    Not really a biggie.

  • 1)Germany.
    2) Finland.

    All other countries come as you wish, but these are the leaders. Oh, special mention to England; After all, although Helloween invented the genre, they in turn were influenced by Iron Maiden, so they (Maiden) can be considered the true innovators of the genre.

    So yeah, Up the Irons!!

    Dark Moor is from Spain, not Germany.

    Anyways, I can't decide. I really like Italy, they have Rhapsody of Fire and Secret Sphere, but Finland has Stratovarius, Germany has some good bands too, so really I can't decide

  • 1) Italy with Rhapsody (Of Fire) and Elvenking.
    2) Finland with Sonata Arctica, Kiuas and Divinefire.
    3) Sweden with Falconer and Narnia.

    I was going to come and say Germany as well, and I'm glad to know that I thought the same as so many other people! Germany has produced some of the greatest metal bands ever to play (Finland as well).

    And then there was silence...
  • Germany(Helloween, Gamma Ray, Edguy...)
    Sweden(Lost Horizon, Nocturnal Rites, The storyteller...)
    Finland(Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius...)
    Italy(Rhapsody, Luca Turilli...)

  • 1) Germany / Helloween, Edguy, Gamma Ray, etc...
    2) Finland / Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Nightwish
    3) Italy / Rhapsody of Fire, Luca Turilli, etc...

    I think Sweden is more like progressive metal..

  • Yes, the swedish bands are kinda progressive but they are still good!
    And all these swedish band like The Storyteller, Hammerfall and Falconer are more epic metal than other swedish bands like Nocturnal Rites or Lost Horizon.

    For me
    - Nightwish
    - Sonata Arctica
    - Dreamtale

    -Noctural Rites,
    -Heed (Awsome band!!!),
    -Dream Evil, Falconer,

    3) Germany/France/Italy/Netherlands/

    4) UK/Spain/USA/Belgium/Portugal/Swiss/Austria/Brazil

    Maybe Sweden has more good bands from top of my list, but NW and SA are brilliant band, each of them is worth 10 others :D
