Power Metal

  • Power Metal

    So I've realised that I don't know an awful lot about power metal, bar a couple of bands like Nevermore and Control Denied. Mostly since a lot of it appears to be pretty nerdy and makes me wanna cringe...

    Anyway I was kinda wondering if some of the power experts around here would care to name drop a couple of essential albums for myself and any other power noobs. There's no better way of killing time than exploring an unfamiliar genre =D

    Dream Evil - The Book of Heavy Metal and Firewind - Burning Earth are incredibly catchy and are good starter albums.

    I don't consider either Nevermore or Control Denied power metal :P I'd recommend Sonata Arctica - Silence if you're into sentiments, or Blind Guardian - Imaginations From The Other Side for some good power :)
