Power metal is a totally guilty pleasure of mine. I guess it’s the genre that got me more into proper metal from being a nu-metal kid. Bands like Blind Guardian and Iced Earth really got my interest growing and are still two of my favourite bands. While reviewing the newest Sonata Arctica release for the Metal Legions magazine, soon to be released(!), I figured I would try and put together my top 10 power metal records that I would defend to the grave if required. Prepare your invisible oranges people, we’ve got battles to fight!

1. Blind Guardian – Nightfall in Middle Earth

2. Iced Earth – Something Wicked This Way Comes

3. Lost Horizon – Awakening the World

4. Helloween – Keeper of the Seven Keys

5. Edguy – Mandrake

6. Grave Digger – Tunes of War

7. Rhapsody – Symphony of Enchanted Lands II

8. Kiuas – The Spirit of Ukko

9. Stratovarius – Visions

10. Hammerfall – Crimson Thunder

These are probably my favourites. No doubt I’ll have missed out on something great, but there you go. Maybe I’ll go back to being grim again after this.
