I've been wondering, are there any power metal acts getting really big just recently? Let's define "big" as having an album chart in at least one country. Looking around, I see a few names who are just coming into the light in the last 6-10 years. Xandria seems to have gotten a second wind when they went from a mediocre goth metal band to a great power metal one, and Serenity has been steadily improving their sound. But the former seems to be stuck in Nightwish's shadow, and the latter seems to be going by relatively unnoticed.

So my question is - what would you call the most successful power metal band around today that wasn't around in the 80s/90s/early-to-mid-00s?

Luca Turilli's Rhapsody? I don't know. Amberian Dawn? Hmmm, Gloryhammer? Very Happy

Last two could probably work!

LTR doesn't really count since Luca has been around nearly 20 years now. Some other veterans in that band too iirc

I would say Amaranthe but I don't know what kind of metal they are Laughing

This is actually a really good way for me to check my musical tastes. I can't recall the last 'new' power metal band (that didn't include members of famous 80s/90s/early 2000s power metal groups) that I listened to that I really, really enjoyed. It seems like it's all either way too symphonic, too soft, or mixes harsh and clean vocals. I can't think of a single band that qualifies. I'm so out of the loop.

Sad

Now,one serious question for a "PRO ENGINEER"

If the "Marvelous" expensive studios, with tons of "Golden Engineers" with so "EPIC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY"

why the music in this time is SO GARBAGE?

1- THE NEW MUSICIANS ARE GARBAGE?

2- THE PRODUCERS ARE GARBAGE THAT ONLY THINK IN BUILD MONEY BASED ONE STANDARD AND FALL IN MUSIC DESTRUCTION?

3- THE SOUND ENGINEERS FALLS IN GARBAGE "PHOTOCOPY" SOUND AND ALL THE MUSIC LOSE THE ESSENCE?

Choice your favorite point

Laughing

One motha faka always said the true, maybe in this motha faka version, not the old one Laughing

You even stop to think why Luca Turilli got a epic fail?

you ever stop to think why Rhapsody of fire, sonata arctica, Now Nightwish and TONS OF OTHER BANDS need do "Shared shows"?

I'm not aggressive, i only call to the consciousness.

Maybe you need a MAP.

we are speaking of HEAVY METAL, NO SYMPHONIC METAL, NO PROGRESSIVE METAL, NO DEATH METAL, NO TRASH METAL, NO POWER METAL

we are speaking based in the old, and very played heavy metal

this is the cruel reality.



Now you understand more? I hope that yes Laughing

PD edit: THIS IS A MAP OF 2012!, I wish see the 2016 map now Laughing

Probably not definitive, or even power metal, but I find it hilarious that there's a Saudi Arabian band with not one but two albums about anti-religious themes:
