Power Metal is Heavy Metal taken to the absolute limit. Following in the wake of Thrash Metal, Power Metal boasted the same aggression and volume of its forefathers, but was much more complex and sophisticated. The door was opened by British bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest - and in came a flood of American bands, including Attacker, Savatage and Queensryche, and European bands, including Helloween, Gamma Ray and Grave Digger. This book documents the full scope of the world-wide Power Metal phenomenon, with exhaustive histories and discographies. Includes a free CD.
