Kamelot, Dragonforce, and I don't know if anyone would consider them power metal, but my favourite band with a tenor for a singer is Nevermore.

yes man. I like them. The guitars are powerful and that angry type (very close to Blind Guardian) of vocals is great. Thanks for sharing!

Hammerfall is one of the first I really listened to (and I think we have a GMC lesson in their style)
Then Galneryus (and soon after I saw a GMC lesson on the style of this band)
Dragonforce is super too if you want guitar overload.


I have really listened to a lot power metal lately:

Avantasia is one of my new favorites:

Dark Moor is ok too

Yeah I know I always promote my favorite Danish band:

I don't know if you would call it power metal, but they have a lot of genre labels:
