As the title suggests: I am looking for some instrumental power/heavy metal, prefferably in the vain of acts like UI-70 and early Machinae Supremacy and their instrumental work.

I am aware of acts such as Powerglove, Ivan Dolowitz and fairly many bands which aren't included in the archives, being mainly artists producing "metalized" remixes of early 90s games etc. An example of such artist would be S.S.H.

By all means feel free to recommend me anything ranging from the said remixers to actual metal bands/projects, be them included in the archives or not.

The 'video game-ish vibe' I mentioned is not a must, but it's just that some of these instrumental bands are really "synthy" (SID, synth guitar etc.) which reminds me of some gaming music. You should get the point, anyways. Having said that, stuff ranging from mid-tempo to fast is preferred, but I don't really mind Dragonforce/Hibria/<insertband>-esque ridiculously fast stuff (w/o vocals), either.

Something like this is what I have in mind: UI-70 - 神さびた古戦場~suwa foughten field

Thanks in advance.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but somewhat interesting regardless. They have some nice guitarwork going on, but the time changes seemed really forced at times. (Though after listening a few songs, I wonder why are they on archives? I should probably listen more sooner or later).

Totally not what I was looking for. But yes, that was pretty fun taking the fact that I speak Japanese into account and that am a touhou sucker. (But the fact you knew this is baffling indeed, unless I missed something badly).

Thanks to both, anyways.

Well, since you said power metal with a video game feel, I'm recommending the soundtracks for the Dynasty Warriors video games. Fucking awesome instrumental power metal.
