Best Of European Power Metal


Simply a list of the 30 best Power Metal albums of the European/Melodic style in my opinion. One album per band and in order of preference, although the order may change over time.

true, but they have that European power sound, and funny thing, in my opinion, is better than a lot of European power metal bands.

Cool picks especially the lesser known ones like Domine, White Skull, Dionysus, Last Tribe, Mob Rules etc. I agree with almost all of them and would add a few more as well (you can check my 2 lists if interested).

The ones which I don't find that great are Nightwish, Stormwarrior, Rhapsody and Kiuas.

I agree with being better than almost any other power metal / prog power metal band, be it European, Japanese or other continents. However, they do have a unique style and sound and I don't agree that they adopted the European style 100%, they are one of the more original bands out there.

Maybe I should not have said that Angra is better than a lot of Europower band, when for me it's rare that I find bands to enjoy, one of my least favorite metal subgenres. But I've always enjoyed Angra, I listened to Fireworks when it came out and enjoyed them every once in a while ever since.

I put the LOL emoji there because it's funny that one of the best Euro-power sounding bands is not even from Europe.

Labyrinth - Moonlight
