Onslaught_fei;1886088 said:Huge Jag Panzer fan myself. I have too many power metal LPs and albums to mention but to dip my 2 cents into the pool some of my all time favorites are Dream Evil, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Demons & Wizards, Luca Turilli, Gamma Ray, HolyHell, Stratovarius, Primal Fear, Angra and my personal favorite... Manowar!

LegendofRock3021;4452853 said:No, the band is Melodic Death Metal.
MegaIronDragonDeth;4452857 said:In my opinion, they are Melodic Death Metal as you said but with elements of power metal and folk.
MegaIronDragonDeth;4452857 said:They could also be considered Extreme Power Metal since they have songs that are sort of like power metal with extreme metal elements too like the vocals and stuff.
They can't be since they don't have any Power Metal elements, it's Symphonic Metal which I said above. Similar to Children of Bodom in respect that they're Melodic Death Metal that often gets mistaken for Power Metal even though they're not.
