    Overrated.

    Whoops, did I say that outloud? My bad.

    Seriously, I like to listen to them, and they're pretty good, but the hype over them is really too much.

    there are so many lovely bands out there in metal, flower metal is so...snobby to me. Almost every one i know who listens to it says "Oh the other forms of metal are ok....they just dont have the message and feeling of flower metal" so my perception is just sligtly biased, also i run a metal show on the radio....and im not allowed to play anything softer then Thrash, so i dont get alot of exposure

    There are better power metal bands than Dragonforce.

    Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards, Rhapsody (of Fire) and Sonata Arctica to name but four.

    like i said before i dont get to paly things lighter then thrash, and i really dont like my metal lighter then thrash to be honest, i love melodic death but thats about as far down the line i go. From what i have heard of them they have no power metal elements and all the elements of love metal that i oh so loath.

    They're okay. Decent to listen to every now and then, fun to see live. Nothing special though, and there's dozens upon dozens of power metal bands I would much rather listen to.

    And yes, Sonata Arctica is lovely stuff. One of the first five or so bands I got into, so there's a bit of a special connection to me.

    Finns! Well now I have to listen to them...

    *listening*

    Oh God, oh God it's wonderful...

    Wait, wait now the lead is singing. Blech. It's okay, but his voice irks me.

    *is torn*

    While I'm not really into hardcore vocals (at all), I'm into The Showdown (unofficial myspace...new cd not so good; More). If anyone knows any good metal that doesn't have all hardcore growls or whiney annoying voices like (IMO) most of the bands mentioned in here, lay it on me.

    Hmm, the music of The Showdown doesn't seem too bad, but the hardcore shouts are pretty damn terrible and those metalcore-type clean vocals are so incredebly cringeworthy

    Anyhoo, seek and yee shall find:

    Black Atom: Scottish metal band, the singer's a friend of mine. He's not very good to be honest, but decent and definitely neither whiny or hardcore-ish.
    http://myspace.com/blackatom

    Pharaoh: An American power metal band with a slight progressive edge. Amazing vocalist. http://www.solarflight.net/music.php

    Hibria: The very embodiment of the tern "power metal". http://www.myspace.com/hibria

    Astral Doors: Okay, so their originality is like -10 as they are pretty much 100% what Dio would sound like if he made modern power metal. That said, it still rocks a lot. http://www.myspace.com/astraldoors

    Cans: solo band of Hammerfall's frontman. His best vocal job so far as he pushes the lower end of his range to excellent results. Pretty heavy, too. Clickedy-click

    Virgin Steele: OMG BEST BAND EVER! Well I think so anyways. I can't really think of any description that would do them justice, so just let the music speak for itself: http://www.myspace.com/virginsteele

    Custard: German power metal goodness. The vocals are a bit gruffer and shriekier, but overall still pretty melodic. http://www.custard.de/albums.php

    Circle II Circle: Err, Prog? I guess. Nice music, pretty melodic and atmospheric. A very full, pleaseant-sounding lower-pitched voice on vocals. http://www.myspace.com/circleiicircle

    Gamma Ray: Please tell me you already know these guys. Please. Anyways, Rebellion in Dreamland is the best thing my lovely home country of Germany has ever produced, easily trumping even Weißbier. Vey oh vey, what a long link

    Goat Horn: Something a little heavier. The vocals are gruff, but definitely not core-ish. http://www.myspace.com/goathorn

    Heathen: More heavier, old school thrash type stuff. True Communists that they are, they are offering both of their album for free download on their own website, http://heathenmetal.com/. Really, every band should do that.

    Iron Savior: More German metal goodness here. http://www.myspace.com/iron_savior_usa

    Jag Panzer: And some American metal goodness here, too.
    http://www.jagpanzer.com/html/downloads/audio.htm
    I'd especially recommend the tracks "Three Voices of Fate", "King at a Price", "Licensed to Kill" and "Take to the Sky"

    The Lord Weird Slough Feg
    : Weird band name? Well, it's a weird band. Imagine Iron Maiden mixed with early Black Sabbath and some celtic folk thrown in for good measure. Loevely. http://www.myspace.com/sloughfeg

    Masterplan: German power metal band, more on the melodic end of the spectrum. Superb vocals too, quite hard rock-ish. http://www.myspace.com/masterplanmetal

    Pagan's Mind: More goody-goody power metal, pretty progressive stuff. http://myspace.com/pagansmind

    Rage: German metal juggernaut. Released some 18 or so albums in the last 23 years and and changed styles quite a bit. The only constants are that it's all metal, and all good. I personally like their two orchestral albums "Ghosts" and "XIII" best.
    http://www.rage-on.de/ => media
    http://www.myspace.com/rageofficial

    Riot: American band. Changed style and singers quite frequently, ranging from hard rock to speed and power metal. http://www.riotsweb.com/

    Realm: Up for something crazy? Over-the-top, shrieky, pretty technical and unorthodox thrash? Look no further! http://www.myspace.com/realmendlesswar

    Okay, so that sound like just about enough for now. Enjoy!

    Katatonia is always nice if you like slow music. The vocalist is kind of melancholic, but it doesn't matter.

    If you prefer harsher vocals, but not quite screaming Ensiferum and Wintersun are both very good. They are both melodic death metal, but the vocalist is understandable, but still guttural.
    You can shout it from the roof-tops, you'll be preaching to the choir.
    And you better get started on this funeral pyre, and one day I will truly set myself on fire so you can see how dim my light is.
    So you can see how dim is my life

    I have one song by them... It's interesting to say the least.

    Also, I like Dragonforce, but then again I'm very picky, yet not picky at all about what I like. As long as it 'sounds' good to me, then I like it.

    Of course not much 'sounds' good to me.

    I might be slightly biased towards them though, because I love pretty much anything involving Dragons. Ever since I was little.

    In adition to those i will recomend the following:
    For those who like it fast and technical, there's also Angra, Elvenking and Angra.
    For those who like their powermetal with a lot of atmosphere, there's Iced Earth, Dreamtone and Excelsis.

    Well, the vocals could really be better, and a lot of the music was very NWBHM. What realy helps this band out is the clean, accoustic parts. they are really great. Just bought their album.

    Big Blind Guardian Fan here. The first three albums and Nightfall in Middle-Earth I like best. I have all of them except A Twist in The Myst. I doubt that I will buy that one. The only song from A Night At the Opera that didn't get on my nerves is the magnificient And Then There Was Silence.

    The first album from Demon & Wizards was good, but I was seriously disaapointed with the second.

    Rhapsody (of Fire) ? Good Power Metal but so kitsch. I like their earlier stuff though (up to and including Power of the Dragonflame). But after that ... kitsch OD ... shudder.

    Kataklysm is wonderful, as is Gardinean if you just listen to Sindustries....theh other two arnt that great and should be purged. Ill second Fintntroll, nothing like speed ploka to get the juicnes flowing. Bolt Thrower and The Haunted is also amazing. none of them are power metal but they are just as good, or better if you like heavier.
