    This is what happens when you make a power metal thread on a forum primarily made up of black/death metal fans. Let's all just sing a Freedom Call song and be friends.

    Yeah, except the argument had nothing to do with power metal (or black or death metal for that matter).

    Power Quest have the same repetitivity of Dragonforce,even if they're really talented....they only lack in creativity,the rest is awesome.

    Anyway,Gamma Ray rules.Power Metal IS Gamma Ray!:worship:

    They're my favorite power metal band. They do have a prog feel, and Khan's vocals and lyrics are amazing. Really a killer band, and not repetitive at all. Every album offers something new.

    ^ I agree. Too bad they aren't in the main scene anymore. From what I hear, they're almost underground now...

    I think I mentioned them earlier in this thread.. Unification and Dark Assualt (with Kai Hansen on board) rock. They are still solid but I've got my fill there.:heh:

    I can't tell if you're making fun of Kamelot, or if you're just saying that being underground isn't a bad thing. If it's the former, shame.

    However, I actually disagree about their underground status; if anything, Kamelot is larger now than they ever have been. Ghost Opera has not been as widely accepted as their previous efforts, but the album they released before Ghost Opera (The Black Halo) really catapulted them into the spotlight. I think they're still enjoying fairly wide recognition in the pantheon of modern metal.

    ^Well, yeah. I mean, a lot more people have heard of Kamelot now than ever before, and I also have a couple friends who dislike power metal but have really begun to dig Kamelot since they released The Black Halo. Most of them just love the song March of Mephisto (I think they love that Shagrath is in the song). But still, I think that they're more widely known and loved now than ever before. Ghost Opera may have alienated some people, but I know that they still hold out hope for the next album.

    Can someone give me the rundown on Helloween and Gamma Ray? Best albums/what to avoid/where to start?

    tbh avoid most Helloween but the Keepers of the Seven Keys Part II has a lot of their big hits on it...and as for Gamma Ray, I have like 6 albums and none are bad. I think Powerplant might be their best.
