    Who are Keldian similar to? I'll pick up some CD's later to check them out.

    What are your top 10 Power Metal bands? Mine would look something like this:

    Blind Guardian
    Fairyland
    Rhapsody Of Fire
    *Nightwish (old)
    Freedom Call
    *Elvenking
    Bride Adorned
    Dragonforce (old)
    Gamma Ray
    Sonata Arctica

    :kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass::kickass:
    *Not sure if they could strictly be called Power Metal but they're near enough so I'm gonna list them here anyway.

    Hmmm...they're hard to pin down...really they're isn't a band I've heard that I can compare them to, maybe a little like Sonata Arctica...

    ETA- the singers range is a little lower than a lot of PM...but it's effortless, and has a very nice tone.

    My 3 favorites:
    Blind Guardian (by far my favorite PM band)
    Angra
    Sonata Arctica

    That was really interesting, I enjoyed the whole ethereal other-worldly feel. I'll get hold of their discography :popcorn:

    I've tried to name "top power metal" lists before and I just can't do it. I'm a sucker for the whole genre, pretty much no matter what. XD;;

    Hey, seriously? I'm looking that shit up. I think "FantasMic" is one of Nightwish's best songs.

    I've always wanted to hear a death-metal "Be Prepared."

    What a load of retarded BS. Firstly, you're either insane or hearing-impaired if you think that song sounds like pop, and secondly, I (and I'm sure many other people) listen to Power Metal as a means to chill out (a mood which that song creates really well), whereas if I want to listen to something heavy I won't even look at Power Metal at all, I'll listen to other genres. Therefore choirs, extended keyboard and guitar solos, etc. (like Keldian) are very appropriate in Power Metal in my opinion.

    I got hold of the Keldian discography and there are some real gems in there, and although most songs are heavier/faster than the song posted here, I still come back to it as one of my favorites because of the ethereal and unique atmosphere that it creates, especially the part with monks chanting, it always sends a shiver down my spine, I wish they had used these kinda effects more in the rest of the songs. :popcorn:

    I haven't heard any good power metal in awhile :( Everything I listen to just sounds generic and is trying too hard to be epic. Any new revelations people have found? I'm craving some energizing power metal but all I find myself doing is playing Kiuas over and over again...

    That song is as poppy as power metal can get.

    Pop music doesn't usually have real instruments, let alone keyboard and guitar solos as well as monks chanting etc. Your perception is really distorted. Here are a few more of Keldian's songs that are great:

    The song "Heaven's Gate" isn't on Youtube but that's another great one.

    Doesn't "pop" suggest it's popular?? lol...upbeat does not equal pop IMO.

    Changing the subject, how the hell do you pronouce Kiuas?

    Exactly, "pop" implies commercialization and mass popularity, and Keldien have neither, but they do kick plenty of ass... :worship:
