Since the dawn of time, one genre of music has dominated and ruled with an iron fist

How could they put Grunge in there? Blasphemy! ...oh wait, that's a band, too.

Just take a look at Priest's Wikipedia page and there are four different categorizations for them: heavy metal, speed metal, hard rock, and power metal.


Yeah, that's what happens with bands that have their own sound and are difficult to categorize. Nevermore, for example, have been called almost every type of metal.

Hehe, I'm not too sure either (and am not interested in finding out) about Avenged Sevenfold being metal or not, I just remember reading a guy once called them power metal and I needed some names, lol. A lot of people have the tendency of calling bands power metal very easily though, I've even seen U.D.O. being described as power metal (probably simply because of his voice) while it's definitely just classic heavy metal.

As for Manowar, they fit into power metal because of their bombastic sound and fantasy themes (something Rainbow may have started out) so they have had their influence, however compare most power metal band's sound of today to Helloween and Manowar, it's definitely the Helloween sound that has been copied / has inspired other bands more. Few bands sound like Manowar, as the bassist himself said.

"these days, there's a real lack of big, epic metal that is drenched with crushing guitars and choirs and orchestras... so it's nice to be one of the few bands that's actually doing that."


It's why Kai Hansen is regarded as 'the grandfather of power metal'.

I feel like this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=req-oDf2ZRc should be the theme song for any Germanic army. I think it's got a very Brikwarsy feel to it.

Heh, I should've known which song you meant before you even clicked the link, it's an epic song indeed and I often look to such things for inspiration when I need names for stuff.

Rayhawk should make autoedits of "trust" to the first thing ti pop into my mind, "thrust".

Then again, "In God we thrust" could be described as begging for a thunderbolt.
