Has anybody ever heard, or listened to Power Metal (bands such as Helloween, Gamma Ray, Running Wild, etc.)? All of my friends and relatives say they have not and I would like to know if anyone else does. I just wanna know because i listen to this stuff.

Don't wanna sound "smart ass" but......of course!
Both German bands from Hamburg. ;)

Helloween is still around, and Running Wild started mid 70s untill they split up last year .

I'm not into that kind of old rock though, more stuff like Hendrix, Led Zeppelin or Stevie Ray Vaughan from time to time

*points to sig*


Getting paid today and plan to pick up the new Dream Evil, and a used copy of Sonata Arctica the lady found the other day at FYE for $6.

I suggest you check out a band called Magica.

Just got their latest album from AFM records to review for the zine, I'm tackling a review of it next. I'm greatly impressed. Kinda like old school Nightwish but without the operatic elements, and much softer female vocal style. Worth checking out.

If you're into Power Metal, I can recommend Sonata Arctica, Sabaton and Falconer to you.

YouTube- Sonata Arctica - Black Sheep

YouTube- Falconer - Mindtraveller

I think Hammerfall and Dragonforce will be known by everyone who knows what Power Metal is.
If you like it a bit more progressive, I can recommend Wuthering Heights. They play a mixture of power, progressive and folk metal. They're one of my many personal favourites.
