Here at Ride into Glory we pride ourselves on creating in-depth introductions and primers to various scenes/genres that we’re interested in. These guides can easily crest 8000 words and given the average time spent on an article ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 minutes, it’s clear people aren’t exactly reading the whole things and I can’t blame them! I know the guides can be very dense so here’s the solution – video accompaniments that cover the basics! The guides will always be there to reference if you want to read and learn more.

This is my first video and I had an absolute blast talking about one of my favorite styles ever – United States power metal. I’m still getting the hang of YouTube so please let me know what you guys think in the comments! I’m more than open to feedback and would love to know what interests you. The current plan is to eventually turn the site’s most popular primers into videos.

Great job on the video. Along with the written articles, I think this will be great primer/guide for newbies and old school geezers like me. Looking forward to more videos in future. Keep it Heavy!

Great article including some of my favorites! Wondering if you would consider Agent Steel’s Unstoppable Force, or Flotsam & Jetsam’s Doomsday for the Deceiver to be power metal, or speed metal? Could go either way…\m/
