Οι 101 κανόνες του Power Metal:

  1. You have one goal: be epic.
  2. Let no sound be lonely. If there’s a guitar solo, harmonize it. If there’s singing, make it a choir.
  3. Keyboards offer a way to add thousands of different textures to a song. Find two of those that you like and use them on every song you write.
  4. In a power metal world, everything steel is good, and anything good must be compared to steel.
  5. You are not bound to sing about Satan, evil, and/or darkness.
  6. You are bound to sing about dragons, freedom, and/or power metal.
  7. Remember how no sound should be alone? Same goes for albums. Everything can have a sequel!
  8. You are allowed to be blonde.
  9. Swords enhance your credibility and your performance. Be sure to carry one regardless of whether or not you know anything about using one.
  10. Pick a theme and stick to it. Manowar are warriors of true metal, and they don’t get to sing about anything else. Rhapsody has their Algalord chronicles. Hammerfall has their steel, hammers, and templar. Running Wild has pirates. Blind Guardian has Tolkein. None of them are allowed to sing about anything else.
  11. If you have to sing about something else, put together a side project to do it. Avantasia is the perfect model.
  12. Ballads are permissible.
  13. That doesn’t mean your ballads can suck.
  14. The longer a song is, the more epic it is. See rule #1.
  15. More solos means more epic.
  16. If at all possible, be Michael Kiske.
  17. If this is not possible, pretend to be Michael Kiske.
  18. Your album cover should include at least one of the following: fire, steel, weird glowing magical items, irregularly muscular men, fists thrust into the air, weaponry, magic creatures (preferably dragons), or bright beams of light around somebody/something.
  19. ‘Grim’ and ‘necro’ don’t apply here; they just make you look silly. Now go back to singing your 20 minute epic about dragonslaying!
  20. Power metal depends on power chords.
  21. 16th notes are the only notes.
  22. Unless you’re singing, in which case you are not permitted to hold a note for any less than 2 bars.
  23. Keyboards get solos, too.
  24. If you can’t be Michael Kiske, you can at least be Timo Tolkki.
  25. Actually, don’t be Timo Tolkki.
  26. In case you didn’t know, “symphonic” is synonymous with “epic.” See rule #1.
  27. Just because 300 bands before you have already done “epic,” there’s always room for more.
  28. Songs come in two tempos: metal and ballad.
  29. You are officially the only group of people who can refer to themselves as ‘mighty’ without being laughed at. Much.
  30. Audiences need to be able to sing along. Make it catchy.
  31. Sing in English, even though your fan-base will be comprised entirely of Brazilians, Germans, Japanese, Swedes, and Finns. See rule #30: if it’s not catchy, it’s harder to sing in a language that is not your first.
  32. Play in as many bands as possible. More side projects and guest appearances means more epic!
  33. Tight. Pants.
  34. You don’t have to detune your guitars.
  35. Though you probably should drop them a half-step.
  36. Unfortunately, you need at least two guitar players. How else are you going to have dueling guitar solos?
  37. Keyboards may substitute for one guitar player, as long as they can solo.
  38. Fortunately, you don’t need a bass player! Or at least, you never have to use the same bassist twice.
  39. Begin all songs with one big swelling chord on the keyboard.
  40. Acoustic guitars are allowed. Sometimes.
  41. It’s not a tour, it’s a crusade!
  42. Layer your vocals, hundreds upon hundreds of times. Don’t worry about them live.
  43. Never use mundane words in your lyrics. Nothing is epic if you don’t use words like “majesty,” “glorious,” “magical,” and so on.
  44. Wizards! You need wizards!
  45. Although your costume does not require corpse paint, it will require a cape, lots of jewelry, and the aforementioned swords.
  46. Unless you are Manowar, in which case you are too metal for clothing.
  47. Come to think of it, don’t be Manowar.
  48. Wear armor if at all possible. Hammerfall can give you an idea of the variety of acceptable armors, ranging from leather to ring-mail.
  49. Songs don’t begin at full speed. Gradually work your way into an epic frenzy.
  50. Hail true metal!
  51. Acoustic guitars are for intros and bridges. Then crush them with steel.
  52. Epic. Tight. Pants.
  53. Higher vocals are epic vocals. Female lead singers are great for this.
  54. So, male lead singes should sound like female singers. See rule #52.
  55. True warriors can tell the difference between albums.
  56. Concept albums are totally epic. Nobody will ever see it coming.
  57. Liner notes must include pages of backstory, either of your epic saga of conquest over dragons and evil or of your epic battles with alcoholism while recording the album.
  58. Drugs aren’t metal.
  59. Beer, however, can be served in all kinds of true metal ways.
  60. “Flagons of ale.” It’s appropriate to your fantasy-riddled lyrics, and it almost looks like “dragons,” so you score extra points.
  61. Since you can’t get away with grunts, growls, and other troll-like noises, you will have to sing.
  62. Your accent will show as a consequence.
  63. To compensate, sing about killing trolls. Preferably with the swords that you carry onstage.
  64. More sequels = more epic. See rule #7.
  65. Guest vocalists, guest guitarists, and any special appearances from outside your band will make your sound more epic, even if the track sounds just like all the other songs on the album with an extra solo.
  66. Norsk Arysk Blak Metal! Rahhh!!!
  67. Begin songs at half-tempo, and then, when listeners least expect it (i.e. at exactly the same time it happens in all your other songs) kick into full speed complete with double-bass and power chords.
  68. Bass players: one note. Really fast.
  69. But include one enormous crazy-ass bass fill before the chorus, even though the production will bury you so far in the mix that most people won’t realize your band has a bass player.
  70. Just because you don’t play black metal doesn’t mean you can’t use Tolkein.
  71. Whenever you short of ideas, pick up your Dungeons and Dragons books. You might as well be the first band to sing about owlbears.
  72. Never leave Europe.
  73. For purposes of rule #72, Japan may be counted as part of Europe.
  74. Oh, and South America was colonized by Europeans, so it can count too.
  75. Orchestras make a great addition to your album. Since you can’t afford one, find a new patch on your keyboard.
  76. If your live album does not have the crowd singing all the harmony parts for you, you aren’t epic enough to justify a live album.
  77. If you are European, use as many archaic English words in your lyrics as you can. Obfuscation is epic!
  78. If you are South American, your lyrics should be closer to standard English, though nobody will ever read them.
  79. If you are U.S. American, you probably aren’t actually a power metal band. Sing about tanks, or something.
  80. If you are Italian, write some lyrics in Latin. Your American fans won’t be able to tell the difference between your Italian lyrics and your Latin ones, but Latin is epic.
  81. Remember, shaving is epic, haircuts are not.
  82. Entire albums must be recorded in the same key.
  83. For that matter, entire careers may also be recorded in the same key.
  84. Guitarists, remember: dun da-da dun da-da dun da-da?
  85. Make your band logo very angular, but perfectly legible.
  86. More than a logo, you need a mascot.
  87. He need not be distinguishable from Eddie, but he does need to be on all your album covers.
  88. At your first gig, if you feel a “rising force”, do be sure not to get it all over your audience.
  89. Record your best songs unplugged, and sell them as an EP.
  90. Do not expect anyone to buy the EP.
  91. Remember, power metal fans are not gay. They are just comfortable with their masculinity.
  92. Sing along.
  93. Don’t get caught singing along.
  94. Glitter is not epic.
  95. Neither is body oil. See rule #47.
  96. If you see a black metaller in the woods pretending to be a troll, see rule #9 and rule #63.
  97. In your liner notes, thank everybody you toured with, even if they’re Stratovarius.
  98. Complain about Stratovarius constantly even though you’ve bought all their albums and listen to them more than anything else in your collection.
  99. Power metal must be pure; do not mix it with other metal styles.
  100. To repeat: be epic.
  101. I ran out of funny things to say way back at rule #52, but any less than 101 rules would so not be epic.

  65. If you ever find that you have somehow become a member of Hecate Enthroned, be sure to piece together a music video of scrap footage of yourself walking around in the woods at night looking evil.

  84. Satanus. Huh huh huhuhuhuh.

    of three completely unrelated words. Dimmu Borgir are the master of this (i.e. Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, Spiritual Black Dimensions, Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, Godless Savage Garden) but you may also want to refer to Immortal’s “Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism”.

  97. In order to make your recording more incomprehensible and
    therefore more “cult”, be sure to either select a singer who has only a tenuous grasp on the language to be sung. (Acceptable languages: Norwegian, Latin, Orcish, esperanto.)
  98. I’ll tell you what your album lay out needs…Some titties.
  99. And you know what else? How long since you acted like a troll? Pick up that makeup and go look for a bridge to sit under…“fight” soldier!
  100. You mean to tell me you read this whole thing when you could’ve have been prancing about in the forest with an axe? For shame! For shaaaaame!!

  9. No matter what anyone says, that vocalist is not the Cookie Monster.
  10. I said “No laughing!!!”
  11. No matter what anyone says, you’re not a Goth.
  12. While a black teddy bear with a broken heart hanging from a noose on
    your windshield may very well symbolize your tortured inner nature, it’s
    not very metal.
  13. It is acceptable to listen to non-doomy music if you play it at 1/4 of
    its normal tempo.
  14. You may complain about an album’s production unless it is a Thergothon
  15. You will own Thergothon’s ‘Stream From The Heavens’, but never listen
    to it because of the bad sound quality.
  16. Spend years looking for that extremly rare limited to 500 copies vinyl
    only release that you must own, then listen to it twice in your lifetime.
  17. You must never admit to liking a “fast part” on a doom CD, unless it
    is Disembowelment.
  18. Watch incomprehensible cult movies with no plot, storyline or anything
    remotely interesting happening because “it’s doomy!”.
  19. You can make fun of Nazis unless the said Nazi is Fucked up Mad Max.
    Then you can overlook his beliefs because his “music was good”.
  20. Album covers must contain one of the following: Ruins, Spirits in
    agony, A cemetary sculpture of an angel, or A pretty painting of heaven…
  21. But you’re not a Goth!
  22. As a Doomster, you’re too apathetic to engage in silly music genre
  23. Unless someone calls you Gothic, then it’s on.
  24. Always let your goat listen first to a new CD, so she may consider if
    it’s good or bad for you.
  25. Kitty cats are not appropriate pets unless they’re black and
  26. You must appreciate folk polka metal because polka is dark, emotional
    and “…really doomier than Serenades when you think about it.”
  27. Consider yourself open-minded about music.
  28. Consider all other metal narrow-minded, especially “True Norwegian
    Black Metal!”
  29. Ignore the contradiction of the above two rules.
  30. If you’re a traditional doom fan, you must complain endlessly about My
    Dying Bride, and call all the non-trad fans “Gothic Fags.” Also complain
    about Droning doom because it’s not music.
  31. If you.re a Sludge Doom fan moan that Trad doom is really Heavy Rock.
  32. If you.re a Stoner Doom Fan, you are not paranoid. They are all out to
    get you.
  33. If you’re a Doom/Death fan, you must complain endlessly about Droning
    Doom because it’s even slower and more boring than what you listen to.
    Also complain about trad-doom because half the vocalists sound like
    they’ve been castrated.
  34. If you’re a fan of Droning Doom, you’re probably too busy zoning on
    the droning to be reading this list, or to even care.
  35. Remember Rule 22. You do not engage in silly music genre debates.
  36. If someone says Doom-Metal is a mix between Death-Metal and
    Gothic-Metal, kick him in the nuts.
  37. Unless you’re fixated on an Earth CD at the time, then you probably
    didn’t hear a word he just said.
  38. If you find yourself describing your favourite piece of music as
    “Joyful,” “A bright ray of sunshine,” or “the super happy fun song,”
    there’s a slight chance that it’s not Doom.
  39. Doom Reviews containing descriptions such as “Crushing,” “Monolithic,”
    “Depressive,” and “Suicidal” are good reviews… and yes, these are
    complimentary terms!
  40. If you feel down, then listen to some truly soul crushing, suicidal
    doom to cheer you up.
  41. If you are Doom, you are probably from Finland or Yorkshire.
  42. Even if you’re not Doom, if you’re from Finland, you’re probably still
    a miserable bastard.
  43. No matter how slow you play, you can always play slower.
  44. If there are more than 30 beats per minute, the music is too fast.
  45. If you play anything above 30 bpm, you are probably Pop music, unless
    you are Disembowelment.
  46. If Skepticism suddenly decides to play something above 30 bpm, then we
    will make an exception for them too, but this is very unlikely.
  47. Make sure to include such words as “Emptiness,” “Dying,” “Solitude,”
    “Cold,” “Night,” “Despair,” “Demon,” “Caress,” “Darkness,” and “Shadows”
    in your band name, song titles, and lyrics. Arrange them in faux poetic
    ways such as “In the Cold Demon’s Caress, I lay Dying,” “Dark Emptiness,”
    “In Demonic Shadows, I Despair.” “Empty Shadows of Death,” and one that
    every True Doomster should relate to: “Nights of Solitude.”
  48. Only the first two albums of a band are True. doom.
  49. Disband after the first album or mini-cd and you’re CULT!
  50. Never let your audience know if your new song is an instrumental or
    not until you really have to. Give them at least 3 minutes to guess how
    the song will turn out.
  51. Record 6 songs that span over the length of 2 full CDs. Obviously
    intro’s, outro’s and short intermezzo’s (on both disks) are included in
    the song count.
  52. You must make fun of Black Metal musicians taking pictures in the
    woods. Promptly afterwards you will have your band-mate follow you into a
    thicket by the local cemetery with a 35mm camera for “band shots”.
  53. True. doom lyrical content must include references to: a relative,
    spouse, fiancée or pet dying, or abstract explorations of getting dumped
    by your girlfriend.
  54. If you reference all of the above in a single song, you qualify for
    “Sooper Dooper Pooper Scooper True Cult Doom” status. An example of this
    would be: “Rover has passed into the frozen wastes of Kadath, and my heart
    has been rent from my ribcage by thee, temptress bitch.”
  55. There have to be at least 3 different songs with the same name in your
    repertoire. (You may put a number after it if you want, such as “Rover, My
    Temptress Bitch MXVIII.”)
  56. While practicing your death metal “Cookie Monster” vocals, resist the
    temptation to write songs about how much the chocolate chips long to join
    the sugary dough for one last dip into the pond of milk white purity
    before being thrown into the gaping maw of a ravenous muppet.
  57. Most importantly, and I can’t stress this enough: Be from Finland!
  58. A Funeral Doom riff should last a minimum of 15 seconds, and repeat
    itself for at least 16 minutes.
  59. You know you are a funeral doomster when you find yourself saying,
    .Black Sabbath just play too fast…
  60. If you.re a traditional doomster, rip off Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus,
    Obsessed, Pagan Altar and Pentagram, then claim any similarity is pure
  61. Mourn the loss of Paradise Lost a once great band.
  62. Violinists are not necessarily gay.
  63. The mark of good funeral doom is whether you can get a beer from the
    fridge in the time between two snare hits.
  64. True doomsters are too depressed to go to band practice.
  65. Use . in your song titles
  66. Doomsters are not kvlt, tr00, gr1m or pretentious.
  67. Hide your Darkthrone records when one of your doomed mates visits.
  68. Any song shorter than 8 minutes is an ‘Intro’.
  69. Doom bands should not be popular, unless they’re disbanded, then they
    are CULT.
  70. Don’t go out, unless the weather’s cold and dreary.
  71. Funerals are your favourite pastime.
  72. State explicitly that doom bands are interesting and varied, then
    record a song with one riff the entire 20minutes of the track
  73. If you are no longer doom, say you’ve “progressed” and deny that any
    previous doom recording even existed.
  74. Sing along in the bath to your favourite doom band, then deny it
    because your too “depressed” to sing to yourself in the bath
  75. Doomsters listen to a variety of music, are able to appreciate many
    music forms, and laugh at the shit non-doomsters listen to.
  76. All doom bands are pioneering even if they sounds like every other
    doom band
  77. Keep tours to a minimum, if people want to see you they have to be
    cult enough to travel at least 20,000miles
  78. If more than 20 people ever come to one of your shows, you have to
    break up or else you’re a sell-out
  79. Name your demos and albums with strange titles like “Cthulghy Hyoyrto
    Skyththte”, or “Jhihhee Eliidhhddeenn Fffffhhhhttthjhjuuuuu”. By doing
    this, your band will look really avant garde, progressive and doom.
  80. Be tired and indifferent during interviews. Your answers should
    contain at least 10 long-structured sentences. Otherwise, you are just a
    punk rock prick.
  81. Doom musicians don’t move at gigs. If they move, they are not doom.
  82. Same applies to the audience.
  83. Do not update your band.s website.
  84. If your fellow-band members are manic-depressive, make sure you quit
    before they reach the manic phase!
  85. Never respond to e-mails, especially if they are asking to buy your
  86. Don’t release any of your tracks on the internet, so people can’t find
    out how you sound. And when do finally release your album, release it in
    an obscure label from Australia that refuses to distribute any of the 500
    printed copies.
  87. If possible, do not release anything when you’re band is still
    together. After you’re disbanded release your abominable rehearsal tapes
    and sell them with outrageous prices.
  88. Artwork must contain pink or purple!
  89. Make really happy music and sing about always looking on the bright
    side of life… Eric Idle is doom?. Life’s a bowl of shit, when you look
    at it!
  90. If someone can recognize one of your band members in a picture, you
    are not doom.
  91. Do not betray your favourite band by wearing one of their T-Shirts. If
    someone sees it and listens to them, they will become popular and hence
    commercial sell-out shit.
  92. Re-re-re-re-release your demo on tape or vinyl, but not on cd, and
    make sure no one ever will be able to buy it
  93. You know when you are listening to doom when you.re out cycling and
    old ladies walk past you.
  94. You know when you are listening to doom when that snail jumps out in
    front of you.
  95. The mark of a good Funeral Doom album is to put it on, go to sleep and
    find it’s still playing when you wake up.
  96. Make sure your booklet don’t contain lyrics or information of any
  97. Doom should sound like being alone, naked, with no food, or water, in
    the middle of a terrible blizzard, with a lot of hatred and pain in your
    heart, while being on drugs. If it doesn.t go see a doctor of doom.
  98. Finland, Finland, Finland, the country where I want to be, pony
    trekking or camping, or just watching TV. Finland, Finland, Finland, it’s
    the country for me!
  99. Always keep the curtains closed, use candles is you must have light.
  100. Your first breath is the beginning of your death.
  101. Go drown yourself in a stream of mourn.
