Im not sure I know who Dragonforce is, but back in the day, great speed metal consisted mostly of bands in Germany: Destruction, Kreator, Sodom, Tyrant, Warrant, Helloween (early), Grave Digger, Running Wild, etc. Canada had contributed as well with Sacrifice and Exciter...............

Hmmm, I guess the term speed metal means something very different now than back in the 80s............

The kings of powermetal, at least in Europe, are Manowar. Other power metal bands to check out are: Helloween, Accept, Hammerfall, and Judas Priest. For Canadian content, check out some Anvil. I dont know why they have all these classifications. Back in the 80s, there was only Heavy metal, and pop metal, now metal has 3000 varieties.............
