    As I don't know what you consider power metal, I will just put some of my favorite ballads from metal bands:

    1 - Fading Hours (Rage)
    2 - Melancholy (Iced Earth)
    3 - Remember Yesterday (Hammerfall)
    4 - Spread Your Wings (Silent Force)
    5 - Dust (Rage)

    power metal is just power metal , lol

    Power metal is a style of heavy metal music pioneered and largely practiced in Germany and Scandinavia.

    The first power metal song is arguably the 1976 song "Stargazer" by the band Rainbow.

    Power metal was developed in the mid-1980s primarily by the German band Helloween, who were influenced by bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Power metal borrows from 1970s metal styles, but adds important elements of speed and melody. Whereas most genres of rock focus largely on personal experience, historical incidents, social commentary, or other aspects of "real life", power metal often treats cosmological or metaphysical themes. As such, lyrics draw heavily from science-fiction, mythology, and fantasy; Tolkien-esque imagery is especially common in the latter.

    Power metal vocals are generally clean (as opposed to the growling vocals that characterize Death Metal) and delivered by a trained vocalist; singing power metal involves more than a few high notes. Often power metal vocals have multi-layer vocals similar to Queen. Typical power metal bands consist of a vocalist, two guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer. Many bands also play with a keyboardist and a few, such as the Italian band Rhapsody, have been known to record with more symphonic elements.

    This style is most popular in Europe, Japan, some countries of South America and has a growing popularity in certain parts of North America.

    Stratovarius' "Forever" and Savatage's "Believe" are both AMAZING ballads! Actually, Savatage have quite a few great ballads; Summer's Rain, If I Go Away, All That I Bleed, When The Crowds Are Gone, Sleep, Somewhere In Time, St. Patrick's, etc...

    One of the all time great power ballads is Fates Warning's "Guardian". Queensryche's The Lady Wore Black is right up there too. (I would describe their first EP as early power metal before they got more progressive).

    Also partial to Armored Saint's "Aftermath" and "Isolation", Helloween's "A Tale That Wasn't Right", Angra's "No Place For The Dead", just to name a few...

    Hm,Dokken and Twisted Sister are for sure also no "Power Metal Bands"..
    Metal ballads would have been a better title for the topic.
    OK,here are my top five...

    Metallica-The Unforgiven
    Nevermore-The Heart Collector
    Nevermore-Sell my Heart for Stones
    Jag Panzer-Sonet of Sorrow
    Skyclad-Constance Eternal

    A few more :

    Judas Priest - Dreamer Deceiver
    Nevermore - The Sorrowed Man
    Virgin Steele - Child of Desolution
    Grave Digger - The Ballad of Mary
    Savatage - Alone You Breathe
    Primal Fear - Tears of Rage
    Queensrÿche - I Will Remember

    I'm not very fond of 'happy' metal ballads though, a few exceptions aside ("The Silence" by Gamma Ray...).
