    Thank you for the reply. I very much appreciate it.

  • Favourite: Freedom Call

    Love many others but Freedom Call have always been top for me... even if Hero on Video is one of the most embarrassing songs I've ever heard.

    Least favourite: hard to say as there's a lot of sub-par bands out there... of the bands that everybody loves I'd have to say Kamelot though. I like them but they're my least favourite of the big names.

    Yeah Freedom Call is really good. I like Kamelot, it seems alot of people don't like them all that much though. Thanks for your response.

    Favourites are Stratovarius, Blind Guardian and Theocracy. I like alot of bands and couldn't really decide on one big favourite, since listening preferences are always mood-dependant, but I name those 3 because they are probably the only bands where I can't find one single bad song.

    Least favourite: hmm... hard to say, but I gonna settle on Skylark, their music just sounds boring and unimpressive.

    Heheheh. I have yet to listen to them.

  • My all time favorite band is Pharaoh but as far as the others go, pffff Manilla Road, Virgin Steele, Omen, Jag Panzer, Satan's Host, Helstar, Vicious Rumors, Oracle, Phantom, ... there are just so many awesome bands but I guess USPM as a whole gets my vote :p

    Favorites: Theocracy, Angra (New), Wuthering Heights, Timeless Miracle, Kamelot, Sonata Arctica

    Least: Rhapsody of Fire, Angra (Old), Edguy, Avantasia, Iron Savior

    I just can't get into the original singer for Angra, so that's why they are on both lists =p. I do wanna say the stuff in my "Least" list isn't stuff I actually hate, but just stuff that bores me after a couple listens.

    I understand. Thank you for the reply.

  • Kamelot and Firewind spring to mind.

    Tbh there is no power metal band I actively dislike.

    I doubt you have heard many of them if that's the case because there are quite a few mediocre to downright bad power metal bands out there.

    Most power metal fans seem to dislike at least one power metal band but I share the opinion of not actively disliking any.

    Sounds like you're more of a fan of the thrashier power metal rather then the melodic maybe? Just a guess from this.

    You're right, I am a big fan of the thrashier stuff, however I like a lot of the melodic stuff as well. For example, I love Kamelot as well as many of the European style power metal bands too.

    Awesome. A very open minded power metal fan you must be.
