    I'm interested to listen to the lists people provide as I don't listen to any power metal.

    Orden Ogan's Easton Hope is definitely my favorite power metal album of the year so far, and is probably in my top five for the past several years.

    I stopped making the distinction between "gay" and non-gay. Stupidly derogatory terms coined by sexually frustrated teenagers.

    but it would seem the power metal chorus that has become quite formulated could be seen as having a degree of gayity
