Nightwish? Power metal? I don't think so. Honestly, don't devote Stratovarius and other legendary bands by putting em on the same list. Name one Nightwish song that fulfills the requirements of metal music(cool riffs, nice keyboard playing, double bass moshing...)

TBH I hate everyone here in Finland thinks Nightwish is the best metal band of the country.

Nightwish's oceanborn album is power metalish.

The songs Stargazers and The Pharaoh Sails to Orion.

also, everyone in finland think nightwish is the best metal band of the country? really? dont get me wrong I LOVE nightwish but I find that sort of surprising considering the other finish bands.

Since when did it have to be double bass to be metal or power metal?

For one per album
elvenpath
stargazers
fantasmic
dead to the world
planet hell
seven days to the wolves

The who concept of "best" is a joke. Every band is different and apples and oranges, if we go by best selling, then nightwish gets that award, if we go by best musicians, a different band gets it, if we go by other factors some other band gets any number of it.

In here it is terrible.
There are thousands of little Tarja wannabes who think they can sing like her.
Nightwish is almost like basic education here.
And of course they are getting both bashed and loved for that.

Double bass has always been one of the main characteristicts of power metal.

Yeah as we still need Leverage, Kiuas, (Symfonia that you forgot), possibly Thaurorod, Winterborn and so on.

With Warmen and maybe Hammerfall instead of your night 2 choices, this would be a weekend I'd probably give everything I have for.
Good chances I'd also do that just for a Sinergy show though. I'd travel through hell and back for that.

Hammerfall is Swedish and Night two choices are perfectly fine Neutral

And like icecar said, they have songs with double bass. Oceanborn is full of Strato-worship, which is fine with me because a lot of power metal bands started out with Strato-worship Laughing

they got 4 albums, Invitation, Divinity, the Fallen Empire, a compliation and the new one called Unholy .
the first singer was the singer of requiem,Jouni nikoula (or something like that), he was awesome I really like it.
then; Taage Laiho sings on divinity and Fallen empire, I like divinity. fallen empire has cool but not really an inspired album. in my opinion.
and finally the unholy album, i heard some samples in his home site, and sounds very cool, I havent been able to buy it yet.

Oceanborn was released in December 98 in Finland, the same year destiny came out. Oceanborn doesn't sound like Stratovarius at all. Love both bands, but sometimes I think people give stratovarius too much credit.

Around a year or two ago I got a handful of not-so-legal dvd movies from not-so-illegal sources, it was heaven. Imagine the face of a salvadorean child when he found a not-so-readable copy of the hungarian masterpiece Kontroll while rumagging violently on a sunday morning. It felt like christmas day and penis inspection day all at the same time. Apart from other not-so-innocent titles, he also found the inscription "V niin kuin verikosto" in what seemed to be an obscure east-european hardcore-porn DVD. OH the surprise when it turned out to be a shitty version of "V for vendetta" with some not-so-understandable subtitles. It kept me up for weeks the thought of such a fucked up language, until I found out it was finnish.

Oh, the long answers.. Crying or Very sad

No, you are wrong Very Happy . Ensiferum, Wintersun and Kalmah. That would be the right trio. A super trio actually. Smile

In an interview that is on a dvd somewhere Tuomas himself said that Strato was a big influence on that album. Wink

yeah , was on their dvd End of Innocence he even shows what is seems to be a finnish paper, where the "stratovarius is a big influence" is written.
and I think everybody pretty much agree that maybe not the whole album, but the strato feelin is very upfront in oceanborn.
