This have created tons of diffrent styles and sounds within the genre. You can also sing about everything, there is no specific theme tied to power metal. Want to be succesfull in the gerne? You must sound diffrent from the rest.
Taking random elements from genres of music that are artistically incompatible with the spirit of metal is NOT creativity at work. It is an attempt at gathering attention by doing something "OH SO RANDOM AND CRAZY" rather than through the merit of their work being in the compositional strength.
Black metal is significantly more diverse than any other style of metal and it isn't even something that can be argued.
WARNING: YOUTUBE SPAM AHEAD
Power metal does not even come CLOSE to the variety of styles black metal has to its name
