German Power Metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music that originated in Germany in the 1980s. It is characterized by its fast tempos, melodic guitar riffs, and soaring vocal melodies. The genre is heavily influenced by traditional heavy metal, but also incorporates elements of progressive metal, speed metal, and classical music. German Power Metal bands often feature multiple vocalists, and often incorporate keyboards and synthesizers into their sound. Common lyrical themes include fantasy, mythology, and medieval themes. Notable bands in the genre include Blind Guardian, Helloween, and Gamma Ray.
