Well on the power metal sounding the same thing, I must have gotten you confused with someone else, that's a very common phrase to hear around here. I want to say that I totally back up the general complaint that there are a lot of bands in the general genre that do greatly lack creativity and originality.
I wasn't drawing direct comparissons from Firewind to Strato or Gamma Ray, I just kind of used those two bands as examples of bands I know you like, and figured youre general arguement (being the lack of details) was that Firewind were "just another power metal band that sounded like all the others".
I can somewhat see what you're getting at with the melodic death metal-isms of some of their riffs and leads, which obviousy has a lot to do with Gus G's time served in bands playing that style. I honestly find that to be one of the cool things about Firewind. There aren't many other bands out there doing that unique combination of melo-death guitars with 100% melodic vocals, which I find pretty neat and allows a lot of their material to have an edge and sense of balls that a lot of other bands in the general heavy/power metal genre don't have.
I CAN NOT agree in any way about your comments about Gus G's solos. I find his solos absolutely great. Depending on the select tracks you may have heard, he does get a bit run-happy and wanky from time to time, but on a lot of tracks he has the ability to craft brilliant melodic and memorable solos.
I also find Firewind to have more memorable hooks than many other bands, and said hooks seem to be a lot less of the typical fruity fairy-like power metal fare and more gravitated towards melodic hard rock, which I really love.
If I were to ever actually like Firewind this would probably be why.
