Power Metal

Highly influenced by the NWOBHM scene, the Power Metal genre emerged during the early 1980s. With double bass drum patterns and high-pitched vocals as key ingredients, bands like Helloween and Manowar were early influencers in the Power Metal community.

The Power Metal Pack includes questions on the originators of the scene, as well as “second wave” bands like DragonForce and Nightwish. Make Kai Hansen proud - get the Power Metal Pack today!
