Power Metal

  • Originated in the mid 1980's in Germany
  • Combination of traditional and speed metal.
  • Lyrics often involve mythodology and fantasy
  • Some Glam Metal influences with the big hair and bright colours, some are more goth in appearance. 
  • Gamma Ray - Into The Storm - mainly performance with a little bit of narrative. 
  • Nightwish - Amarath - Mostly concept with a little bit of performance. Counter-typical having a female lead singer, most heavy metal bands don't have any female's in them. 
  • Helloween - I want out - Performance with a little bit of narrative. All of the performance is focussed on the lead singer, set in an abandoned warehouse and also in a dessert, some comedy is also used.
