    Эпидемия
    Alestorm
    Rhapsody of Fire
    Rhapsody
    Nightwish
    Blind Guardian
    Sinergy
    DragonForce
    Warmen
    Stratovarius

  • Hammerfall
    Blind Guardian
    Dark Moor
    Rhapsody of Fire
    Masterplan
    ...

  • Angra, Helloween,Instanzia, Sonata Arctica, Gamma Ray, Primal Fear....

  • Quantifying is hard, but I can apply some basic statistics to create a reasonable list:

    If we are talking about sheer number of songs that I like, then the bands Dragonforce, Nightwish and Freedom Call would be very near the top.

    If we're talking about bands that have the most songs that I consider to be absolute masterpieces, then Aquaria, Angra, Nightwish (again!) Wuthering Heights and Tierra Mystica would be in the top five or ten.

    If we're talking about bands that have my very favorite style of power metal, then Angra, Aquaria, Rhapsody of Fire and Elvenking would be near the top.

    Actually, I like so many bands that even this sample is laughably small and provides no real information.
    For example, I never even mentioned Twilightning, which had (sigh) one of my favorite singers, and some of the most "busy" guitar playing ever; Solar Fragment, with a great vocalist and style that's different from most bands; Blind Guardian who have probably THE most epic style of any power metal band ever; Dreamtale which has gone through three or so amazing singers, with songs ranging from melodic epics to Fantasy Masterpeices; and who could forget Falconer, one of the most recognizable bands just based upon hearing the opening guitar, and unmistakeable when the singer begins.


    "Favorite" really makes no sense, though I suppose if I were to pick ONE song to demonstrate my love of music and power metal, it would be Aquaria's "And Let the Show Begin."

    You're Favourite Power Metal Band? (It's YOUR* not you're, for those who know how to spell American English)

    - DragonForce

    - Sonata Artica
    - Iced Earth
    - Stratovarius
