Power metal

Power Metal is a generally up-beat metal genre consisting of fast guitar hooks and catchy tunes, often associated with neo-classical metal and progressive metal, and occasionally glam metal. The earliest influences of power metal are traced back to 1976 when the musical group Rainbow(led by Ronnie James Dio) released the track, “Stargazer”.

    "But SFB is beginning of the end, really." Exactly, when a band start improving their own style rather than staying repetitive and generic it's the beginning of the end for them.

    no way. A Night at the Opera is best. Somewhere Far Beyond isn't bad, but it's too much like thrash and old school metal (the biggest metal genres I don't like) to be great. moreover, it's a good thing people have different opinions. else there would only be room for like 50 bands across the entire world

    Earlier BG stuff is better than "Somewhere Far Beyond" and actually can be compared with USPM. But SFB is beginning of the end, really.

    Somewhere Far Beyond > All other power metal, US or otherwise

    I don't get "true" people. I listen to bands, not genres.

    True Power Metal bands are for example Manilla Road, Manowar and Jag Panzer, not shitty gay "metal" bands like Hammerfall or Edguy -_-
