power metal may be a sub-genre and includes stuff like swords, war, blood, brotherhood, knights..etc
its the exact opposite of being gay, its very inspiring and powerful with power chords and fast solos.
Manowar is one of the best examples of power metal
and i would like to mention for others that Obituary is influenced by manowar, and its not power metal
power metal bands such as Manowar, Iron Maiden, DragonForce..
