...this will fail spectacularly.

Sadly, though, the Europower crowd will probably buy it.
I don't think the Europower crowd really has much choice about buying this. There's not much else on offer. That scene (and most of the other long-running metal subgenres) is so moribund in terms of new, vital acts that anything even barely competent that qualifies as power metal is going to sell to those few people still hungry to buy the stuff. It's the same reason why every sixth-rate demo recorded between 1980-1993 is getting a deluxe reissue, or why people buy rethrash at all. There's nothing good to buy, but it's not like we're all just gonna buy nothing!
