Power metal is a subgenre of heavy metal combining characteristics of
traditional metal with speed metal, often within symphonic context.
Generally, power metal is characterized by a more uplifting sound, in
contrast to the heaviness and dissonance prevalent in styles such as
doom metal and death metal. Power metal bands usually have anthem-like
songs with fantasy-based subject matter and strong choruses, thus
creating a theatrical, dramatic and emotionally "powerful" sound.The
term was first used in the middle of the 80s and refers to two different
but related styles: the first pioneered and largely practiced in North
America with a harder sound similar to speed metal, and a later more
widespread and popular style based in Europe (especially Germany,
Finland, Italy and Scandinavia), Latin America (Argentina, Brazil) and
Japan, with a lighter, more melodic sound and frequent use of keyboards.


Anthropologist Sam Dunn traced the origins of power metal back to the
late 1970s, when the groundwork for power metal lyrical style was laid
down by Ronnie James Dio. The fantasy oriented lyrics he wrote for
Rainbow, concentrated around medieval, renaissance, folk and science
fiction themes, directly influenced modern power metal bands. Some even
consider the song "Stargazer", from the 1976 album Rising, to be the
earliest example of power metal. In his 2011 documentary series Metal
Evolution, Dunn further explained how Rob Halford of Judas Priest
created a blueprint for power metal vocal delivery. His almost constant
high-pitched singing became one of the main characteristics of power
metal. The twin-guitar sound promoted by duo of K.K. Downing and Glenn
Tipton highly influenced this sub-genre. Another British band, Iron
Maiden, brought epic and melodic sensibility to metal, creating
anthemic, singalong music, an approach widely embraced by modern power
metal musicians. The emergence of the early German power metal scene in
particular was made possible by Scorpions and Accept. Swedish guitarist
Yngwie Malmsteen made a significant impact on many future power metal
guitarists, with his accurate and fast neo-classical style. His bandmate
Jens Johansson modernized the keyboard sound of Deep Purple's Jon Lord,
which was further incorporated into the genre. American band Manowar's
mythological sword and sorcery lyrics influenced a number of power metal
Musical characteristics
Kai Hansen of Gamma Ray during a show in Barcelona, Spain. Hansen is widely regarded as the "godfather of power metal."

Power metal is today associated with fast tempo and melodic harmonies,
the sound tempered by characteristics of speed metal, power metal's
musical forerunner.


Power metal is highly focused on the vocalist, with "clean" vocals being
much more prevalent than the growling vocals often associated with
extreme metal. Inspired by Ronnie James Dio, Bruce Dickinson, Rob
Halford, Geoff Tate and other heavy metal vocalists, power metal vocals
are often in a high register, and the singers vocal range is usually
wide. The majority of the genre's vocalists sing in the tenor range,
capable of hitting very high notes, for example Timo Kotipelto of
Stratovarius, Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween) and Andre Matos (ex-Angra).
There are however many exceptions who sing in either baritone or bass
range. Some vocalists sing in a harsh, thrash metal style, like Chris
Boltendahl of Grave Digger, Kai Hansen of Gamma Ray and Peavy Wagner of
Rage, or even make use of growls, like Alexi Laiho of Children of Bodom
and Wintersun's Jari Mäenpää. Many power metal vocalists record
multi-layered vocals reminiscent of Queen, most notably Hansi Kürsch of
Blind Guardian, creating a choral effect.

Lyrical themes

Power metal's lyrical themes, though as varied as metal itself, often
focus on fantasy and mythology, camaraderie and hope, personal struggles
and emotions, war and death, or combinations of the listed themes. Many
Power metal bands based their concept albums on fantasy books and
national epics; for example Blind Guardian based their Nightfall in
Middle-Earth on The Silmarillion by Tolkien and Kamelot based Epica and
The Black Halo on Goethe's Faust. Historical wars inspired numerous
bands, like Sabaton, Grave Digger or HammerFall. Some bands have even
written their own imaginary stories, like Rhapsody of Fire's Emerald
Sword Saga and The Dark Secret Saga, Iced Earth's Something Wicked Saga
or Avantasia by Edguy's Tobias Sammet. Many otherwise typical metal
themes such as religion and politics are comparatively rare but not
unheard of.


Power metal guitarists and bassists generally play rapid streams of
notes, but change chords comparatively slowly, with a harmonic tempo of
once per measure or slower. Fast and demanding guitar solos, however,
are almost guaranteed. The slow changing of chords are significant in
defining power metal just as the fast rapid chord changes often define
traditional thrash metal. Power metal often makes use of Major chord
progressions as well as circle progressions. Some of the most
influential and imitated power metal guitarists are Kai Hansen of Gamma
Ray, Michael Weikath of Helloween, and Timo Tolkki formerly of
Stratovarius. It is a common trait in power metal for the bass guitar to
take a back seat, so to speak; often simply providing the chord root
notes and being drowned out by the more prevalent rhythm guitars.
However, some power metal bands incorporate bass that is more audible
with colorful patterns distinct from the rhythm guitars, such as
Helloween, Hibria, and Symphony X.

Many power metal drummers play double bass patterns with either two bass
drums, or utilize a double bass pedal or using them to play a constant
stream of sixteenth notes (semiquavers) with snare drum accents on the
beat, a style not restricted to, but most often associated with, power
metal. The style was used by drummer Ingo Schwichtenberg of Helloween,
setting a blueprint for many other drummers to follow. Others, such as
the drummers of Blind Guardian and Iced Earth, use a more thrash metal
style of drumming with rapid bursts of double bass that involve three to
six beats with the double kick. Even more uncommon, but not unheard of,
is the use of the blast beat.

Power metal bands often incorporate keyboards into their musical
arrangements, something popularized by Jens Johansson of Stratovarius,
though their usage varies from subtle accents to a full-blown melody
line. Some power metal bands also record with symphonic elements, and as
such, they utilize a full orchestra to fill the role usually played by
the keyboardist.
