Re: Top 100 power metal albums on Metalstorm.net
I don't mind Symphony X being on that list. Wuthering Heights is on there too, and they're also very proggy. The point is, Progressive Power Metal is a kind of Power Metal in my opinion, because of the use of instruments and clean vocals. The aforementioned bands all have cookiemonster vox, which is a way bigger letdown for Power Metal fans than the change of pace or a greater length of the songs.
I kinda like Symphony X by the way
