    I don't really listen to power metal anymore, it's been a long, long time. But I used to love it during the 90's and I still own a good number of CDs.

    Guess these are my all-time favorites:

    1 - Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle Earth
    2 - Blind Guardian - Somewhere far Beyond
    3 - Iced Earth - Something Wicked...
    4 - Rhapsody - Symphony of Enchanted Lands
    5 - Grave Digger - Excalibur
    6 - Rhapsody - Legendary Tales
    7 - Demons and Wizards - S/T
    8 - Hammerfall - Glory to the Brave
    9 - Running Wild - Black Hand Inn
    10 - Grave Digger - Tunes of War

    Hard to top Blind Guardian

    I didn't listen to much power metal growing up, but my favorite from the 90's would probably have to be Somewhere Far Beyond.

    I don't think I have any '90s favorites.

    Angel Dust - Bleed
    Angra - Holy Land
    Blind Guardian - Imaginations from the Other Side
    Existence - Reign in Violence
    Gamma Ray - Powerplant
    Iced Earth - first three

    Night of the Stormrider is the only one I think is great, but all are at least solid albums.

    Not a big Power Metal fan, but i like these two bands. My favourite albums would be;

    Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
    Angel Dust - Border of Reality

    Honestly, the best thing Iced Earth released was Days of Purgatory, thought it's a compilation - i would pick this.

    I've got to agree with the people who are going with Blind Guardian - Somewhere Far Beyond, Judas Priest - Painkiller and Running Wild - Black Hand Inn.

    That's a really good power metal album, for those who don't know it, it's a project of Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer and Blind Guardian's Hansi Kursch. The second album is not as good though.

    Good to see some Angel Dust fans here. I saw them back in '01, with Opeth, God Forbid, and Nevermore at the old Brass Mug in Tampa, Fl. Put on a good show in that tiny venue. There was six bands, and for only $17.00 !
