                 The World Speed/Power/Melodic Metal List,
                       (http://www.speed-n-power.com)
                25-09-2016 (being automatically generated)
                            Total bands: 1354

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

   * What is this list about?
   * This list is created to gather information about all the bands which
     play Speed/Power/Melodic (probably, a bit Progressive/Thrash/Heavy)
     Metal. It contains every band which is known to author no matter if it
     has released any albums or only demos. This list was held by
     Serge A. Dubakov and is Copyright (C) 1995, 1996 by Serge A. Dubakov.
     Any part of this list may be reproduced only for non-commercial
     purposes, else contact current list keepers. In the end of 1998 this
     list was passed to FaST (the current list keepers) to update and add
     info to this music list. Now this list is held by FaST and is
     Copyright (C) 1998-2016 by FaST.

   * What is Speed/Power/Melodic Metal?
   * Music is called Speed Metal when it's played fast, technically,
     usually with many guitar solos, beatiful melodies and high-pitched
     vocals. Power Metal is even more melodic and maybe a little slower.
     Classic Speed Metal albums are: Metallica `Kill'em all`, Helloween
     `Walls of Jericho` while good examples of Power Metal are: Helloween
     `Keeper of the Seven Keys part 1-2`, Scanner `Hypertrace`, `Terminal
     Earth`.

   * How should you understand band info of this list?
        o Band name (Country)
        o Description - optional
        o Lineup - the first men are current lineup (between the 'Lineup:'
          and the first empty string), then there are previous band members.
          -symbol - what is he/she, -v - vocals, -g - guitars, and so on.
          +year -year - when he came to the band, when he left the band.
        o Discography (album title/label/year)
        o Official web-site in the Internet (if it exists) - this link you
	  can find in Links part of our web-site.
	  (http://www.speed-n-power.com/links.php)
	  Also we recommend to visit this part and check out our label
	  links, common links, etc. for the required bands.

   * Why are there a lot of mini-albums, collections, demo recordings, etc.
     at the discography section of almost unknown bands? And why are there
     only basic discs at the discography section of well-known bands?
   * 1. It's very easy to find information about well-known bands anywhere
     in the Internet and it's sometimes impossible to find something about
     unknown bands. That's why it's better to mention all the works of
     unknown bands than to overload the list with accessible information.
     2. If discography is very small this is the way to enlarge it and to
     draw it near average size of discographies.

   * Any related material?
   * You can surely visit our Links part.

   * Are there any other metal lists on the Net?
   * Sure! There are The Black Metal List and The Doom Metal List by Thomas
     Wolmer (d90-two@nada.kth.se), The Black Ambient/Atmospheric List by Ed
     Lewandowski (edlewand@li.net), The Death/Grind List and The Rapcore
     List by Bill Vogel III (70534.3023@compuserve.com), The Progressive
     Metal List by Erik Welty (elw@ice.sps.mot.com), The New Wave of
     British Heavy Metal by Philip Wang (pw15@columbia.edu), The Thrash
     Metal List by tssb@mail.ru.

   * There is no doubt that no one can fill the unbounded, know and listen
     to everything. That's why it was possible for some bands that were
     partly or completely unsuitable ones to become part of the list. Maybe
     there is some incorrect information (dates, writing of albums / titles,
     etc. or absence of comprehensive information about the band) here. We
     can't but say about many Speed and Power bands that are still not in
     the list. That's why if you want to come up with any additions and
     corrections, please, contact FaST:
