the way you can tell it's power metal is a simple test -- "if I tell my friends I like this, will I get made fun of?" if "yes," then it's probably power metal

Power metal. in my experience, is either really really good or really really awful. There isn't a whole lot of mediocre. Basically, if you are going to go power, go hard or go home really. You can't half ass this stuff.

Power metal is probably the only kind of extreme metal (defined by me as metal with growling vocals) that I don't actively hate. Well, that and doom metal. Not that I am a fan either (just cannot stand growling vocals regardless of style), but the prog elements tend to be quite interesting.

So, like, are Savatage done?

Their website's still up, but all of the news from like the last ten years has to do with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, or any of the bandmates side projects. Jon has his "Oliva" project now - are they packing it in?

Think it would be sad for them to end things on "Poets and Madmen", which was a weirdly assembled release given Zak Stevens' sudden departure. and that 'new' vocalist Damond Jiniya was in the band for all of five minutes!

I used to outright loathe power metal. But since I've started to listen to more and more metal in the past few years/started valuing escapism above pretty much anything else (in music), my stance has softened (er... hardened?) towards it as I probably listen to stuff that wobbles dangerously close power metal territory. Can't help but hate myself for that, just a little.

is hammers of misfortune power metal? new album is good

or is power metal one of those things like goth where no good band who is goth actually calls themselves goth and any band who cops to it probably sucks?

There's a pretty trustworthy regional divide in quality. US power metal is mostly pretty cool, because it's basically just plain old heavy metal. European power metal is the kind with giggly crackhead elf vocals, synth and a general sense that all the metal got sucked out of the equation.

punksishippies, Tuesday, 20 September 2016 20:50 (four years ago) link

No. Power metal is not fucking like fucking goth. Power metal is about well-justfied high self-esteem.

xpost: European power metal is awesome. Synthesizers in metal are awesome. Elves will kick your ass if they have to make a giant elf-pyramid to reach it.

Got the new Hammerfall album this week - they've switched labels, from Nuclear Blast to Napalm. First song on the record is called "Bring It!" and totally lives up to that title - chorus is a gang shout.

Oh, and to keep to the thread's purpose, anyone who doesn't like Hammerfall can catch a hammer in the teeth.

Gang shouting is the original and proper meaning of "chorus".
