KEEW playlist: February 1, 2017 – power metal(?)

In the spirit of keeping the listeners (or perhaps mostly ourselves?) entertained, Adam and Laura have decided to put together some genre-focused Kill Eat Exploit the Weak episodes in 2017. For some reason, the metal genre we decided to start with is POWER METAL.

If you listened to the show this week, you'll know we present this power metal feature with a strong disclaimer: this is not a list of "essential" or the "best" or "most influential" power metal songs/albums/bands - or any other supposedly objective ranking of power metal recordings. It's just our favourite power metal(ish) songs - or at least our favourites that we could remember and had on hand when we put the show together, alongside some picks meant to highlight some of the contemporary power metal coming out of Canada.

That said, we challenge you not to play air drums or guitar, raise a fist in the air, and belt out these choruses as you celebrate the awesomeness and ridiculousness that makes power metal what it is.
