Ok, so we had a Death/black metal thread. We need a thread for all the epicness that is good power metal. It can be cheesy at times, but I think we all agree that the sheer musicianship makes up for those cheesy moments. Besides, if there was one thing done right out of all the things the 80s got wrong, it is that you can’t deny the power of the All Mighty Riff.
There’s really nothing better than twisted guitar solos harmonized together.
So, let’s get some stuff going…
Here’s a favorite of mine. The best band no one’s heard of…Twilightning. They’re the only band I’ve ever heard put harmonized sweep arpeggios into a RHYTHM riff…here.
Another good one:
Also a fan of Excalion’s music:
The video leaves a lot to be desired, but I don’t usually watch it. I just listen. Their song writing blends very well. Not very many moments when they switch styles or riffs abruptly, they flow pretty well and transition smoothly.
Hail and Post 'em up!
