Power Metal is one of those very much European metal subgenres, mainly through it's influences through norse mythology, European folklore and European classical music. Which is great and all, but I have often thought to myself: Wouldn't it be great to get more Power Metal with thematical and instrumental influences from other cultures? I know that some bands occassionally like to dabble in the area of Arabian Nights, but I feel there is so much potential here for bands to actually specialise in this stuff. So, does anybody know any Power Metal bands - or even Folk Metal bands, come to think of it - that are a bit more "exotic" that way? PS: Like the idiot I am, I complete mixed up folk and power at first (in my defense, a lot of bands I like do both at the same time, so it's hard to tell where which starts and where which ends). What I meant was folk metal, not power metal. Though of course I do prefer the mix of the two subgenres.
