Ended up talking Powermetal with a friend's kid last night. Apparently he has discovered a local Powermetal band in his town. This being his first taste, he was very excited and wanted to know of more bands. I listened to his local band (Ice Sword) later on and realized the bands I gave him are probably going to blow his mind. I only gave him a short list:
Rhapsody (aka Rhapsody of Fire)
I should have also mentioned:
Dragonforce (though somewhat commercialized they're still fun)
I am thinking I will send him on social media the second set of bands. Any good Powermetals I forgot? And please don't tell me Nightwish, I die a little bit inside each time I hear that woman.
