    What do you guys think of Power Metal. Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius, Rhapsody etc...

    Just curious on everyones opinion personally I love it. It calms me down and puts me in a good mood :). Some people dont like it because they think it sounds too 80sish.

    Hmm, If i had to say yes or no id say I like it. I generally cant stand bands that talk about going into battle on every song, my favorite power metal band I would say is Labyrinth, they have lyrics that arent about knights and the dual guitar work is fuckin awesome. I do like some Dragonheart. Rhapsody not really, I dont like fabio's vocal style. Stratovarius gets a thumbs up from me. I dunno, I like the genre I guess :D

    Iced Earth is american power metal. My guess is that you all like power metal since you listen to Children of Bodom.

    I can't say I'd like power metal as a genre, but Stratovarius is not that bad, and Sinergy is great.:)

    gonna have to agree with Hearse, if indeed Iced Earth is power metal (which I really dont consider them), than that would be power metal vocals done right, with a masculine edge. Even tho Iced Earth would be in that minority

    and yes, Sinergy rules. :headbang:

    Some power metal vocals are bad I agree too. But then there are bands like Blind Guadrian, Symphony X and Iced Earth which have what I think are good vocals.

    I don't really like the power metal voices, way to high and childish... I prefer raw vocals like Alexi

    Okay, perhaps the singers in powermetal are sounding like children, BUT is there someone who can say that GammaRay or Blind Guardian doesn't sound good with that kind of singers? I DON'T THINK SO!!!

    What about Kai Hansen singing with his childish voice in CoB!!! YEAH!!!
    (Actually... That could be very kicking)

    :headbang:
