Northern Kings. . . Very good. Another one of those, if you didn't tell me he was finnish, it would be hard to tell. Great list, but, that has already been said.

The thing that is super fun about Northern Kings is that it is a super group made up of members of Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Tarot, Terasbetoni (probably just butchered the spelling), and Charon. And the other great thing is it's all great metal covers of epic non-metal songs. Oh, and if you haven't checked out Falconer already, that is probably the one band that I would expect you to fall in love with, immediately. I have already done so lol

I know, the guys voice is crystal clear, which is very nice. Falconer is great as well. Sonata Arctica has some weirder songs as well. Raven and Wolf is chief of them so far that I've heard.

Might I recommend some albums for torrenting?

Sonata Arctica - Ecliptica (this album is 100% pure win)

Falconer - Northwind

Kamelot - Ghost Opera

Sinergy - To Hell and Back (I think you may also love this band. I just found out about them, like 2 days ago, and I am addicted to them.)

I truely hope you like Sinergy.....

and Falconer is incredible, that album is nothing but epic songs. Also, check out the Sonata cover of "The Wind Beneath My Wings". It was some pop song from the eighties I believe, and their cover is spectacular.

Tonny Kakko, that's what I thought you were talking about.....

He has a BEAUTIFUL singing voice. I absolutely love his voice. It makes some of their songs beautiful as well as epic fast and metal. Him, Falconer's singer, and Marco Hietala (Nightwish's male singer) all have fantastic singing voices.

Sinergy's Number Of The Beast cover. . . ears shall bleed at her scream. And she flirts between manly voice, and female trying for manly voice. Still a very good cover despite the screech.

Ah I see it now...

That was actually a very good cover, Laiho did an excellent job on the solos...

The bass felt too weak though. I guess it's damn hard to live up to Steve Harris' bass playing.

ON YOUR CALENDARS EVERYBODY MARK THE DATE!!!!!!!!!!!
May 21st......Polaris by the newly reunited Stratovarius.....sadly, the guitarist wont be with them, i think Timmo Tolkki (too many Timmos and Tommys and whatever around power metal)

Yes Timmo Tolkki is not going to be in the band. He's the guitarist. Timmo Kotipelto is the vocalist as long as he's in it I'm in lol. I actually was a Kotipelto solo fan before I ever knew who Strat were.

Out of the list, I only rate Firewind (I like anything Gus G is in). I'm a very picky person and even more picky when it comes to power metal. The generic leaders and front runners do little to impress me. I like my power metal with some actual power, like Persuader or Iced Earth. Or exceptionally cheesy like Powerwolf:

People who say that generally don't like thrash, as Iced earth are equal parts power/thrash. Not sure you can overrate one of the greatest rhythm guitarists ever along with THE best vocalist in metal (well maybe Jens Carlsson is a tiny bit better than Barlow). Anyways, its all opinion at the end of the day, but I love power/thrash bands like Dark Empire and Shatter Messiah.

I love Iced Earth, I see why people think they are over rated though.
Blind Guardian KILLS Iced Earth for vocals and tunes, but Iced Earth has better musicians.

Iced Earth is super overrated in my opinion. In fact, I don't really like them at all

People who say that generally don't like thrash, as Iced earth are equal parts power/thrash. Not sure you can overrate one of the greatest rhythm guitarists ever along with THE best vocalist in metal (well maybe Jens Carlsson is a tiny bit better than Barlow). Anyways, its all opinion at the end of the day, but I love power/thrash bands like Dark Empire and Shatter Messiah.

I haven't actually listened to enough to have a good opinion, but my first impressions weren't great. Maybe you could post a thread on some good songs to help me get into them? Because, I love thrash and I REALLY love power metal, if you haven't guessed

Edguy has some very good material, yes I would say they are power metal. I have their greatest hits CD, it's called something else though.
