Best Power Metal Albums


Thumbs up: 0
in MY OPINION, these are the bands and albums i just cannot stop listening to, the 1st 10 albums are the best ones (based on how many times i listened to the album) after the 1st 10, no specific order. If you have any suggestions let me know, chances are i've never listened to the album. Also I have requirements concerning the lyrics, so if i dont update the list with your suggestion is bc i might not like the music or the lyrics. Long Live Multi-Colored Flower Metal!!!

1. Luca Turilli's Rhapsody - Ascending To Infinity
The entire album is not very very metal, but is a masterpiece from begining to end (except for the narrator)
2. Dark Moor - Tarot
A few good songs, heavily orchestral, The Moon is the best song of the entire band, Mozrt must be headbanging his head from his grave
3. Luca Turilli - Prophet Of The Last Eclipse
Good power metal album, some orhcestration and overall very fast paced
4. Rhapsody Of Fire - Dawn Of Victory
Effing classic, great album with a few songs i dont like but overall a great release
5. Theocracy - As The World Bleeds
not very power, more prog and heavy, but a masterpiece nontheless
6. Angra - Temple Of Shadows
Great album with blasphemies agains Christianity, but a great f***ing album!
7. Blind Guardian - At The Edge Of Time
very fast and agressive, and slow and emotive, an amazing BG album
8. Stratovarius - Elements Part I
Epic, fast, Stratovarius, what else do you need?
9. Sonata Arctica - Reckoning Night
Sonata Arctica at its best
10. Rob Rock - Eyes Of Eternity
amazing power metal from the USA, yea i know, american flower metal CAN be good
11. Divinefire - Into A New Dimension
fast and mean, the drum work is top notch
12. Pathfinder - Fifth Element
this album came to save us from dragonforce's "extreme power metal"
13. Stratovarius - Elysium
the first great album since the Elements albums
14. Kamelot - Poetry For The Poisoned
godd metal album, not very power but its a good album
15. Sinbreed - When Worlds Collide
for some reason when you click the link it sends you to a demo version, i meant the full length album
16. Axenstar - Perpetual Twilight
a nice power debut album, my favorite form this band
17. Thy Majestie - Dawn
although it's not Thy Majestie's style, its still a good album
18. ReinXeed - 1912
the way the lyrics are written to tell the story of the titanic is horrible, but its fast paced and flower at its max
19. Impellitteri - Crunch
its heavy metal with one or two fast songs, but with the craziest guitar solos you'll ever hear!!!
20. Dream Quest - The Release
vocalist isn't very talented but the band itslef is great
21. Power Quest - Wings Of Forever
cheese here, cheese there, not bad
22. Serenity - Death & Legacy
ummmm i only like Beyond Desert Lands, the rest of the album is un-impressive
23. Seventh Avenue - Terium
a good concept album from the vocalist of sinbreed (he's amazing by the way)

thanks for your suggestion!!! i was thinking just adding one album per band, i guess it's not enough to cover the awesomeness of these bands so ill add more albums.
