Rhapsody's Dawn of Victory is impeccable. Incredibly cheesy, but the music is amazing. "Trolls in the Dark" was one of the first two metal songs I ever heard (the other being "Bleak" by Opeth).

Celesty's Reign of Elements and Legacy of Hate are phenomenal. Probably my favourite power metal albums. They got kind of weird after those first two albums, though.

Nightwish's Wishmaster is a fantastic album.

Sonata Arctica's Ecliptica is really good. It's super emo, but... very enjoyable. "Wolf and Raven" is their best tune that I can think of, although it's not on that album.

Stratovarius is classic, but 95% of their songs are garbage. But the 5%, like "Black Diamond" and "Speed of Light," are just classic.

Oh, and you absolutely have to listen to "Seasonspeech" by Elvenking. Easily one of the greatest power metal songs ever written.

Dawn of Victory is indeed a very very good album, i already know that one ;)
I have never heard of Celesty's Reign of Elements and Legacy of Hate, but i will give those albums a try ;)

I am not really a fan of Nightwish.
Sonata Arctica is really good, i listen to them often! Wolf and Raven is their best song in my opinion indeed.

How dare you to say that 95% of Stratovarius is garbage? I really like their music :) I think the albums 'Eternal' and 'Nemesis' are their best albums.

But thank you for your reply!

Pretty good? There is nothing more perfect in terms of power metal than this track:

You hate the vocals of Rob Halford, one of the greatest and most iconic singers in the history of heavy metal...

I don't know what to say to you.

Even if Helloween is not your thing, you should definitely keep an eye on the song:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Feu8bxF05Rw

And maybe you should give the two Keepers albums another chance.

Do you know Sinbreed:

or Dragony:

Why power metal that’s like the worst of the metal subgenres. Doom, sludge, stoner, death, black, and even some prog metal are better

Now, if you’re asking for metal bands in general, check out

Sleep
Electric Wizard
Elder
SLIFT
Inter Arma
Devourment
Agalloch
Infant annihilator
Ulcerate
Deafheaven
Boris
Jesu
Sunn O)))

There’s countless more, pm me if interested
