One per band? That makes it harder I think. Also what are we defining power metal as? I assume we're not counting bands like Maiden or Priest, but what about Savatage or Iced Earth? Some people label them heavy metal, some people call them power metal, not to mention early Iced Earth being they count or not? Once I get a better idea of what's counted here I'll try to make a list.
Yea it’s hard to say exactly but for this list we’ll say no traditional metal so no Priest no Maiden no Saxon for example. Iced Earth is ok. Savatage not really they are more trad but let’s say yes.
This catergory is your top 20 metal songs. So you have wide expanse : here. Any kind of metal song is allowed.
Are we limited to 1 per band here too?
Yes only one per band let’s make it more difficult.
19. Rage - Soundchaser
Definitely my fave Rage. Very heavy groovy and Peavy's vocals at their best.
I probably rank it 2nd or 3rd best rage behind Black in Mind and possibly End of All Days.
18. Masterplan - Aeronautics
Nothing they've done would ever made my top 50 even if I was limited to 1 album per band.
17. Nightwish - Oceanborn
I'd actually go with their live album from Wacken if I included them, but if live albums weren't allowed I think Wishmaster would narrowly beat this one for me.
No live albums allowed. It was close between Oceanborn and Wishmaster for me to
16. Iron Savior - Unification
Good. Probably not top 20 for me though.
15. Bloodbound - Nosferatu
Give me Tabula Rasa over this one any day.
I like it. But not as much as Nosferatu.
14. Nocturnal Rites - tales of mystery and

They became so much better with Afterlife.
Many people say that. But it’s not my opinion what can I say.
01. Lost Horizon - A Flame to the Ground Beneath
I'm going to assume the band folded cause they couldn't learn to write good songs and Heiman couldn't learn to control his fucking vocals.
08. Testament - Disciples of the Watch
My fave Testament song. Love everything about it.
My favorite of theirs as well.
07. Judas Priest - Painkiller
The embodiment of what Priest is about.
Is it though? I mean I love the song, but it isn't really close to representative of the vast majority of their career.
Well I suppose you’re right it was much heavier than what they had been doing but it was a great way to bring along the heavy to the masses.
01. Lost Horizon - Highlander (one)
Vocalist should have fucking controlled himself on the mic. The song wasn't great to begin with and with Heiman shrilly screaming randomly all over the fucking map it makes the song utterly intolerable. Wouldn't make my top 1000 much less top 10.
In obvious disagreement my dear fellow.
