power metal is meant to be cheesy as fuck, power metal without the cheese or cringe just isn't as memorable or memeable
>>
oxymoron
>>
OP here
I mean, power metal is supposed to be cheesy, i know, but black metal is cheesy too and there are bands that take the genre in a 'serious' way (Deathspell Omega).
Is there any Power Metal band like that? Or the genre is full of only fat D&D fucks?
>>
>>61862002
That's basically Manowar you uncultured swine
>>
Sabaton and Avantasia (to an extent.)
>>
>>61862002
is black metal really that cheesy? show me cheesy black metal (music-wise. i understand and agree that the whole facepaint/forest dweller/pagan bullshit is pretty cringe)
>>
>>61862002
>Or the genre is full of only fat D&D fucks?

Power metal's themes and lyrical themes are mostly ironic or for fun, but if you really do want power metal that's serious while being cheesy, the japanese power metal scene is where you'll want to check out. the US power metal scene is mostly riffs, euro power metal scene is mostly fun, and the jap power metal scene is mostly serious from a songwriting perspective even if the imagery itself is the silliest.

Check out the latest Galneryus album, the songwriting is topnotch and arguably one of the best power metal albums of all time. X Japan's first few albums are really great. Versailles/Jupiter's good too. Light Bringer's good, Dragon Guardian's good, Cyntia's alright. If you don't mind weebshit or extremely cheesy imagery the entire jap power metal scene's full of relatively serious songwriting.

USPM ist kreig

after that, yuropoors had to gay it up with their keyboards and blind guardians and make everything sound like a PS2 game

demoniac are blackened power metal
they're also just a meme, the guy from dragonforce used to be in them so we memed them

Depends of what you call cringe
>>
>>61862429
I'm european, but I cant fucking stand that modern power metal sound. heavy load is swedish though
>>
>>61861805

nope, that's the point of power metal
>>
>>61862102

This man is right

Also people itt might want to check Blind guardian and Lost Horizon, both are bands that emerge in quality from the euro power metal scene

Also, helloween a shit
>>
>>61861920
Yeah, why would you want to put the cringe out of Power-Metal, that's kind of it's whole shtick, without it it's just a guitar wank-a-thon
>>
>>61862102

you probably think it's serious because it's japanese and asians are serious

dude serious metal lmao
>>
>>61862714
nah lad, if you just compare the regional differences in power metal it's pretty obvious that the japanese take their power metal more seriously. USPM is /riff/, EUPM is /fun/, JPM is /genuine/.
>>
I love powerwolf
>>
it's music based on "technical ability" and dragons....so no

>>61861805
Literally all of them

Being tongue in cheek like power metal is far better and less cringe than black metal's try hard bullshit.
>>
>>61861805
Nope, PM is about that cheese life.
There is ManOwaR but there is something really disturbing like, they take this TOO seriously IMO.
Also.

Blind Guardian

Everyone saying Blind Guardian, kill yourself.
Everyone who hasn't suggested Gloryhammer, be ashamed of yourself, then kill yourself.

>>61862683
Fuck you I like Helloween

I'm a bit ashamed of it and I don't like that album as much as i loved it 5 years ago, but KOTSK 2 is GOAT

power meal will always be cheesy but pic related is still one of the best meals of all time

No, but i can't listen to something like >>61861886 seriously.
>>
>>61865802
>listening to music seriously
>>
I think Slough Feg counts as power metal.
>>
Blind Guardian is fucking great.

I think I'm too biased to tell exactly how cringe they are.
