Anyone know any good powermetal bands?

Answer #4

Savatage, 24 Seven, Iron Maiden, Iced Earth, DIO, Sabbath, 10 Bay 4, AC/DC (of course), Accept, Kemelot, Lizzy borden (awesome), Liege Lord, Metal Church, Drowning Pool, Omen, Opeth, Pretty Maids, Rage, Saxon, Symphony X, Stormwatch, Steel, Vicious Rumors, Warrior, Yngwie Malmsteen, Racer X, Armoured Saint…I could go on.

Some might disagree with the “power” designation on some of those, but they are all awesome bands. Check out some Savatage first, they are one of my favorites and they have been very influential. You have probably heard christmas in sarajevo by them, check them out on youtube before you spend your $$’s
