Iron Maiden is not a power metal band!!!

Well although Blind Guardian is beside Iced Earth my favourite band, I'd say Iced Earth, cause they truly rule the Power Metal scene...


and I agree, Maiden is NOT Power Metal. They are New Wave of  British Heavy Metal, it is true that the isnpired the power metal scene, but they aren't in it, they are just the godfathers and the beginning of it...so thank maiden for being a god...

Well, Iron Maiden isn't power metal and I don't like Dragonforce at all. So that leaves us for 2 options, but the answer is pretty obvious. Wink

I know that they influenced the scene, and I also know they are NWOBHM, but they have power metal-like segments in their music. I would edit the post but I cannot edit the polls.

So, knowing that Maiden is not power metal but has power metal-like segments, vote for them if you like them more than the other bands.


And about the no one likes DragonForce thing, well, sorry, they're one of the most popular power metal bands today. It sucks, I know. I do like them, but they suck considering the others on the list. But I can't tell you that they aren't popular, because, guess what, they are.

I like Dragonforce, liked them before they were "popular". But of course I had to vote for IE.

Dragonforce was a bit hit on Stepmania, before they were even in Guitar Hero. A lot of people say if Dragonforce wasn't such a popular Stepmania band, they would have never got picked up. Bat shit insane difficulty in another music simulator, goes into another simulator that is trying to "push" the envelope.

Came out around March 2006 (the simfile), Guitar Hero 3 picked it up, which was a release of October 2007.
