Hammerfall is practically MADE of cheese. But I love it, especially Any Means Necessary. Power metal can make the cheese work. :headbang:

I bursted into laughter as I saw this thread's title. Power metal is almost inevitably cheesy, but is nonetheless amazing every time!

I've wondered if it could be amazing without the cheese.

I'm having my doubts!

The scale of cheese from greatest to least goes something like Rhapsody of Fire -> Blind Guardian -> Kamelot.

I still love those bands, though.

All three bands rule. Blind Guardian is up there as one of my favorite bands of any genre.

Rhapsody and Kamelot got me into metal in the first place, for which I'm eternally grateful. As for Blind Guardian, I've had this video on constant repeat for the last four days: [link]

The best part for me is that even though all three rely really heavily on production and overdubbing in the studio, they sound even better live. I actually prefer Blind Guardian with the more stripped-down sound they have in that concert video.

Excellent concert! Unfortunately I've never seen them live in person.

The only one of those three I've seen is Rhapsody. Kamelot and Blind G need to come to Seattle more often!!

Watching this concert just leaves me in awe that they can sound so great without all the orchestration, plus Hansi doesn't miss r screw up a note in the whole two hours. I looked at Guardian's tour archive and hung my head in shame. I also know why they don't play too many shows in the States... After playing that mammoth concert festival in the video (which the band put on all for themselves) with like 30-40,000 screaming fans at their feet, they came to my state and settled for a little 1000-seat theater. Cool for the audience, but they really deserve huge crowds no matter where they go.

As for the other two, they both skipped my state and are now playing Europe or something... America needs more power metal.

Everyone in Kamelot except Tommy is from Florida, but they're the only ones I can think of...

Wow, thank you. I did not know cheesy power metal COULD exist. It's not quite to my taste, but yeah, cool nonetheless.

Dragon milk Cheese!? Holy shit, I'm going to add that definition to my repertoire of phrases!

You have a point. Probably because I'm more a fan of heavy metal. Power metal, while I've come across them, I wouldn't exactly call them a genre I actively seek out.

Hahas indeed it is brilliant, but not really what I would call cheesy.
