Stratovarius, one of the pioneers of the genre.

Power metal is a subgenre of heavy metal combining characteristics of traditional heavy metal, classical music and speed metal, often within fantastic and symphonic context. Power Metal focuses on melodic arrangements, high clean vocals, speed and music technique. Power Metal bands often have songs similar to anthems, with strong melody and epic choruses, thus creating a theatrical sound, dramatic and emotionally powerful.[1]
