I am currently bored of all this grim black metal and looking for more songs like in this playlist

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3F4766DA43F66906

so basically i want power metal songs that start with similar cheesy keyboard intros and go on as classic "generic power metal"

so far i have following listed:

Power Quest - Sacred Land
Stratovarius - Freedom
Celesty - Reign Of Elements
Edguy - Vain Glory Opera
Salamandra - The Revenge (i recommend this one to be checked - quite nice band from Czech Republic!)

i wanna expand this list...ty for tips, there must be more

As much as I abhor them, I think Sonata Arctica's Ecliptica has such songs (Been so long since I heard it). However, I'm sure you already know them.

In that case, man is only air as well.

That's the only power metal album* I'm aware of, so I can't really help, sorry.
*it's also the worst piece of music I heard in my whole life.

I tend to forget about these kinds of songs so I can't recall a lot of them. But here's one more for you that fits your examples completely.




Are you sure you don't just want awesome power metal songs without it having to start with a cheesy keyboard riff? Or even ones that start with a keyboard riff that isn't so blatantly cheesy? There are tons of power metal songs that start with a keyboard riff but it's not like that in-your-face-melted-cheese-oh-noes-I-cant-breathe-because-there's-so-much-cheese-in-my-nostrils isolated keyboard riff. Which is what appears to be the theme of the thread.

Well whatever you like. Onward mighty warrior!

For this purpose i only want those WITH cheesy keyboard riff

i am, however, not against the possibility you suggest me great power metal songs without them elsewhere

Why exactly are we looking for things cheesy and generic?
