Riot In The Dungeons
Yngwie Malmsteen
Odyssey (1988)

Most of you have heard of this guy - Yngwie Malmsteen is known as one of the first, and best, technical/neoclassical guitar players in history.  His main infuences are mostly classical composers, and he's had a successful solo career since his start in the 80's.  His band used to go by the name "Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force," but the Rising Force name was dropped after his fourth album (this one).  Because of the similarities between his style and modern power metal, I would happily call Yngwie Malmsteen one of the earliest power metal musicians in history.
