I don't remember seeing a lot of your postings either, what went wrong?

I`ve just seen the pic in your profile with the red pot on your head, are you a Devo fan?
I don't even know what or who Devo is, so I guess not .
What is it?

The 'stuff on my head pics' have been a running gag for years now

I'm guessing it's a pic that shows up when you try to hotlink.



Fates Warning also had some pretty epic old school power metal.


and as long as I'm posting old 80s power metal, I'd be wrong not to include this.

I`m a big Fates Warning fan, but not really of the early stuff, but more the stuff when Ray Alder took over and the band had a more prog-metal style.

Hahaha Savatage always make me laugh, can never keep a straight face watching original singer Jon Oliva perform.

Haha, I know see the resemblance.
It's not really my thing. It's good, just not my style.
Too much 80's synthesizer poppy.
I don't like the 80's when it comes to music. Nor synthesizers, nor poppy.
Byt still, it ain't bad. Just something I wouldn't listen to.
Sorry for messing your topic up by the way! Really sorry

Dude, I think I just found an 80s power metal band that puts Helloween to shame. I don't know how they're not totally famous.



I have never thought about Crimson Glory as Power Metal personally. I do have a soft spot for Transcendence I have to say but it's just good old Heavy Metal to me.

Power Metal seems to accentuate lyrical themes commonly associated with Metal and use of varying octave vocals, big snare sounds and wanky guitar solos.

Guess what? I don't really like Power Metal! It's the stuff that makes me embarrassed to say I'm a Metal fan sometimes.

I can`t speak for Crimson Glory as I still need to listen to them, but in general there is a very thin line between traditional North American heavy metal and North American power metal bands in the early to mid 1980s period. Bands like Anvil, Riot and Manowar put out a big arena metal sound that often runs synonymous with what the power metal bands were looking to do and as power metal took off those bands actually took on a more direct power metal sound. The only difference I really see between those above bands and the likes of Metal Church, Jag Panzer and Helstar is the speed element that these bands had, along with the more Bruce Dickinson/King Diamond inspired type vocals.

BTW, despite thinking its cheesy do you know that Jag Panzer album? Its a classic

I like power metal, too! Blind Guardian and Helloween are awesome. The lead singer of Savatage has is out of his mind. Albeit, it's a little more one-dimensional, but I also like the macho (hahaha) more thrashy US variant. Manowar "Battle Hymns" is a keeper, and I can listen to Iced Earth all day long. Chugga, chugga, chugga...

Oh, Yeah...Metal Church rocks!
