    What are the heaviest power metal bands and power metal songs?

    I am familiar with the genre, but I want to know what you all think.

  • My horizons arent set yet for power metal but i'd say Iced Earth has some of the heaviest power metal songs?

    Iced Earth because of the Thrash influence.

  • Heaviest? Maybe try some Shatter Messiah, Morgana Lefay, Tad Morose, Angel Dust (post reunion, such as the Bleed album), Persuader might be of interest, Imagika is supposed to be pretty heavy (haven't bothered to listen to them yet...might be more on the thrash side), and if you consider some of Savatage's material power metal, they had some pretty dark riffs at times.

    I'll have to look into these, thanks. Yes Savatage is pretty heavy, and I've listened to a little Persuader before. Haven't heard of Imagika, or some of the others, but I've heard of Tad Morose. I'll have to check some of this out, thanks.

    Don't know if they still count as Power, but Rebellion's pretty heavy.

    I have heard of them. It's been a while, since I last listened to some of their songs. I don't remember how they sound, I'll have to check them out more, thanks.

  • I'm guessing USPM as a whole is quite possibly some of the heaviest shit around, stuff like Heretic, Omen and Liege Lord is almost unseen in EuroPM

    Yeah, it's easy to find heavy American bands.

  • I think the heaviest power metal band is DragonForce. It's the most technical band too... What about song... Maybe Nightwish - Master Passion Greed

    DragonForce is not so heavy, they just play fast.

    Yep, definitely power metal (well with some trad in them as well I think). They'd also be a top choice of mine as heaviest power metal band.

    How about Mercenary with their melodic death influences?

  • I'm going to name bands that are heavier than typical power metal, yet remain true to the spirit of power metal:

    1. Manticora

    2. Kiuas

    That's all I can think of, presently. Manticora is just heavier, harder bass, louder guitars.

    Kiuas gets pretty "loud" (for lack of a better term) but also has a vocalist who switches from clean to very raspy, like he's yelling brutally.

    Good stuff, confined within the melodic and double-bass driven power metal genre. (Although Kiuas does not use double bass nearly as much as, say, Dragonforce or even Manticora.)

  • Changes by the band Oracle Sun is pretty heavy for the more melodic Euro/Italian brand of Power Metal.
