Power metal is very cheesy and poppy. Otherwise, it's a cool list.

Thanks,
Depends what kind you listen to. Hammerfall, Stratovarius, etc aren't cheesy at all. Sonata, though, I admit may seem a bit "cheesy" in some of their songs. For the most part, its opinion wise in determining what's good, bad, "cheesy" etc. I for one hate death metal. Can't stand those growls , which is why I like the clear vocals of power metal. You may think power metal's cheesy, I think Death metal's ugly.

If opinions didn't vary, we would've been robots!!
Sonata Arctica is very cheesy. I listened to their Ecliptica yesterday, and it's so cheesy. It's tr00 that death metal's ugly. I tried to get into it a lot, and I succeeded, but power metal, no. I tried Sonata Arctica and I have to admit that they don't make the cut for me. Too cheesy. How about some help?

I'm aware, I just clicked the submit button death-metal-style!!
Well, thanks I'll check these out soon. BTW I hated Sonata's lyrics. Complete crap. However, I like lyrics about dragons and magic and such stuff... I'm a fantasy nerd.

Thanks. Kamelot is one of my favorite bands, but, this is my 20 favorite bands in order. If I extended the list to 30, then Kamelot would be in it... maybe 22nd or 23rd. Either way, my favorite bands varry a lot. Many times i'll re-arrange the list.
