It's a great album, Imaginations From The Other Side is very similar and also great, tbh most albums by Blind Guardian are great! Another Power Metal band worth checking out from that scene is Helloween.
I also recommend Running Wild's albums, Black Hand Inn, and Death Or Glory, although they are Heavy Metal, they are also very close to being Power Metal, and sound something between Helloween and Iron Maiden Imo.

Yeah I've seen Running Wild show up often by your favorites lists. I still have to listen to them. Will do!

I'm trying to explore more power metal. Children of Bodom's Follow the Reaper and Wintersun's Wintersun were cool!
I also really like Iced Earth's Burnt Offerings, but I don't see it here. Did you not like it as much?

I've been thinking of doing a power metal list, but I'd make probably two, one for the Euro-Power, the other for the US Power. The Euro list would not be very long.

Unfortunately the only Iced Earth album I have listened to in full is Something Wicked This Way Comes, which I thought was a very good album, I've listened to some songs off Dark Saga, Burnt Offerings and Night Of The Stormrider, but haven't managed to listen to those albums in full yet, I am impressed from what I have heard so far, so I will have to make Burnt Offerings a priority

I have only been getting into power metal recently, it's a genre that I have started to grow more and more fond of, so my collection isn't large enough yet to be able to do two separate lists between US and Euro.

I'd do it because they are quite different genres.

that's easy to observe. Just listen to one album from each of them and you'll see.
