Don't worry - it's not a fight!

After the banter I have been involved in over the last few weeks has subsided slightly now - I thought I would consider what power metal albums I have actually bought over the years. Here's the ones I can remember:

Are 54 - No Visable Scars

Area 54 - Beckoning Of The End

Bal Sagoth - Battle Magic

Children Of Bodom - Hatebreeder

Chlidren Of Bodom -

Chlidren Of Bodom - Hatecrew Death Roll

Demons And Wizards - Demons And Wizards

Gamma Ray - No World Order

Helloween - Keeper Of TheSeven Keys Part II*

Helloween - Better Than Raw

Iced Earth - Iced Earth

Iced Earth - Night Of The Storm Rider

Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings

Iced Earth - Days Of Purgatory

Iced Earth - Dark Saga*

Iced Earth - Something Wicked This Way Comes*

Iced Earth - Horror Show

Iced Earth - The Glorious Burden

Nightwish - Wishmaster

Nightwish - Century Child

Nightwish - Once

Primal Fear - Black Sun

Stratovarius - Elements Part I

Symphony X - The Divine Wings Of Tragedy

Symphony X - V

Symphony X - The Odyssey*

Three Inches Of Blood - Battlecry Under A Winter Sun

Threshold - Critical Mass

Threshold - Critical Energy

1998 was a great year for me and power metal, and as you can tell, I used to like Iced Earth! Anyway...

What power metal albums do you own? Any ones you are particularly proud or ashamed of?

And don't be dirty: downloading doesn't count - they have to be REAL copies. :D

I haven't included stuff like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden - who some people might say were.

* denotes particularly good power metal album

Holy shit Dan' date=' you have just raised a notch in my book for that list! Not bad... but give me a few mins to piece together mine :)[/quote']

All the iced earth ones are the original American releases too... not the British reissues ;) (although the reisuues actually have the cooler artwork, done by Travis Smith I think)

I'll have to level with you though, I don't think too much of the Stratovarius one, or Glorius Burden. Also the day I bought Demons and Wizards I listed to the first proper song (Heaven Denies) and loved it! But then I heard the rest of the album and was a bit gutted...especially stuff like Fiddler On The Green.

However, people will rip me for Bal Sagoth but I love that album :)

No, 'A Black Moon Broods Over Lemuria' is a favourite here.

Don't suppose you've heard of Mithras have you, Daniel? They supported BS on their last tour, they play fantasy metal with dozens of effects pedals and 1120bpm drumming. I know their live drummer too, I may need lessons from him......

I think that's it, now let me go away and think what I've forgotten to list...

Elements pt.2 is awful - but pt.1 is fantastic! Check out Visions to see the older stuff - and Fright Night is by far the best guitarwork album from them... you may like that better still.

GB - I love that album but all of Black Atom seem to collectively hate it, can't figure out why!!

Demon's & Wizards... BLood on my Hands is awesome, also Fidldler on the Green is the best ballad ever written ever (about a girl who died, some sort of car accident i think). BTW, check here...

That's all for now.

I have no shame in saying I fookin' love TGB. I have two other IE albums, but don't like them as much. They have some awesome songs, but quite a few average ones.

I'd love to see them live though. I have a bootleg from last year's tour, they only played thier really good songs (the ones I've heard anyway) and Ripper makes them even better. They didn't play The Reckoning though :mad: but they did the whole of Gettusburg as an encore so that made up for it ;)

Maybe it's just when I got into Iced Earth, but Dark Saga and Something Wicked will always be easily my favourite two albums by them!

I had this song ages ago called 'Storming Across Heaven' by DragonLAND... it had some good moments, but also some uber fromage. Dont' know if you've heard much by them?

(I think I've quoted the lyrics here before)

Silly question, yep I've heard of them - they do a cover of Neverending Story which is pretty cool!!

...anyway yes uber fromage indeed, never quite got deep into them.
