Power metal is today associated with an epic sound tempered by characteristics of speed metal, power metal's musical forerunner. Power metal's lyrical themes, though as varied as metal itself, typically focus on fantasy and mythology (eg. , Rhapsody of Fire, Blind Guardian, Falconer , Domine, camaraderie and hope (eg. DragonForce, Stratovarius, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Hammerfall, Lost Horizon, Highland Glory, Sabaton), personal struggles and emotions (eg. X Japan, Primal Fear, Sonata Arctica, Evergrey) war and death (eg. Manowar, Sabaton, Iced Earth) or combinations of the listed themes. The prevalence of these lyrical themes span across the many languages power metal is performed in (eg. Angra (Portuguese), Darksun (Spanish). Many typical metal themes such as anti-religion and politics are comparatively rare but not unheard of.

22 Aug 2007, 00:20 by OpilogFor some reason the power metal map is very widespread, cumulating around several twin pairs of bands (who often share members by the way).
This is the largest island; obviously with Edguy at the center. I have no idea, what these bands have in common except they tend to be more on the melodic than the heavy side (ok, I forgot Brainstorm)
With Falconer , Elvenking and Battlelore we also get some folk-influenced bands.
Pretty self-explanatory. Demons & Wizards is a project of members from Iced Earth and Blind Guardian, hence the shared fanbase.
The isolated Helloween family...
What these bands rooting in Rhapsody (of Fire) have in common is the use of symphonic elements and a certain pathos...
