Did you know that on this day in 1968, a rocket named Apollo 5 carried the first lunar module into space? Well to commemorate that useless fact, we’ve compiled some power metal tracks about floating around in space. That’s right, power metal isn’t all about dragons, wizards and unicorns! These brave men are breaking musical barriers.
1. Avantasia – Lost in Space
We wrote Legendary Pictures an angry letter as to why this wasn’t the featured track in the final scene of Interstellar.
2. Keldian – The Last Frontier
They are pretty adamant that they will ‘show no fear’ in space.
3. Luca Turilli’s Dreamquest – Lost Horizons
Luca Turilli’s forgotten sci-fi epic provides nice background music to hunting a few extraterrestrials out there.
4. Gloryhammer – Rise of the Chaos Wizards
I mean the whole album is about evil space wizards…come on! Get your space hunting quest started here.
5. Gamma Ray – Space Eater
Don’t forget your sunglasses when crusin’ around the rings of Saturn.
6. Masterplan – Far From The End of the World
For when you’re missing Earth, but you have to finish mopping up all those evil space monkeys.
7. Machinae Supremacy – Laser Speed Force
And for when you’re victorious in your space conquest!
