    The first Blind Guardian album Battalions of Fear is a classic speed metal album.

    Sonata Arctica are nothing close to speed metal, they're pure happy power metal.

    What exactly do you mean by "speed metal". Give an example of what you mean.

    Overkill are speed metal.

    Blind Guardien and Sonata Artctica are not.

    Listen to Overkill.

    Yeah, I've always seen Blind Guardian as power metal.

    Isn't speed metal just a blanket thrown over any metal that is fast sounding? In other words, it is not an actual genre. Correct me if I'm wrong with that.

    I had the impression Speed Metal was a more general term encompassing many forms, including thrash. Was gonna say Sadus (been into them a bit lately) but then he said no thrash so...

    Early Blind Guardian is definitely speed metal.

    Stormwarrior!

    A lot of Iron savior is pretty f'in cool, but it falls under both the power and speed metal umbrella according to MA.

    Well, as Chuck Schuldiner said, metal's not about categorizing. It's not like groceries in a supermarket.

    It doesn't have to be about being categorized to be apt for categorization.
