  I cant think of a better power metal album than Ample Destruction. Every song is a genious hymn, i dont get, why this band is so underrated!!!!

  Pretty awesome. 'Reign Of Tyrants' felt a bit awkward at points but great stuff overall.

Yeah, this is how power metal should be done.

Indeed. It's nice finding stuff like this, from a genre I thought I once hated. Hopefully I'll be able to hunt down a bunch of USPM records that really hit the spot for me.

Hah, for me it was the opposite. I though I loved power metal, because I got introduced to it through this kind of stuff.
In any case, check out Night Of The Stormrider by Iced Earth if you haven't already. That's like US power metal paradise for me.

Also, R'Vannith has a great list that has most of the essentials.

I gave that record a 6 so apparently it didn't tickle my fancy Might revisit it though. Yeah, I've spotted his list and will glean the stuff I haven't heard from it. I recall disliking Crimson Glory a fair amount (vocal issues if I recall) but I'm sure I can get a few more nice things from it.

Haha, apparently you didn't enjoy any IE album.
I'll just leave it up to you to check out more of this stuff

  Burnt Offerings is way better anyway.

And Crimson Glory is awesome, at least the first two albums are.

The only two where's it at with them and then especially the second one. The first one though great was quite the wannabe early Queensrÿche.

  I couldn't get into Crimson Glory.

As for Ample Destruction, not bad but nothing to write home about. I preferred Helstar's Burning Star out of that period of US power metal/speed metal.

helstar is sooooo much better. Never got into Jag Panzer ebven nowadays I foind this album quite average to lame tbh.
Lit. - 10.02.2015 at 02:24  
  I found Helstar to be just as average as this is, if not more so. Both bands were pretty meh. Guess I don't care for any US Power metal that isn't Iced Earth.

I never really saw them as US power metal, no matter what anyone says. They're progressive metal, aren't they? You said so yourself the first one was Queensryche worship.

  Just checked out Ample Destruction again. Enjoyed it more than first time so upped it to a 7.

Rating: 8 I will agree about Helstar beating Jag Panzer, but this album is still great. I think. Haven't listened to it for a while, but I bet I'll still love it.
