* PerformanceVideo: Three of their four videos so far - namely [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9NyAFqi7x8 A Gift to Remember]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FumJoTCjGA Better Angels]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p11oS9BW7Ss Highways to Nowhere]] - are, at least in part, performance videos. ''A Gift to Remember'' is sort of a cross between a PerformanceVideo and a ConceptVideo: shots of the band performing the song intersect shots of a woman who may or may not be hallucinating seeing the band members in her house. ''Better Angels'' and ''Highways to Nowhere'' are more straightforward performance videos.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually between 5 and 7. Some songs are a bit heavier, though - [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p11oS9BW7Ss Highways to Nowhere]] is firmly within the 7 range, if not the lower end of 8.

Neonfly are a melodic power metal band based in London, England. Founded in 2007 by guitarist Frederick Thunder, the band currently consists of vocalist Willy Norton, guitarists Thunder and Andy Midgley, drummer Boris Le Gal and bassist Paul Miller. The name has no clear origin, as Thunder tends to answer questions about it either obliquely or sarcastically. To date, they've released one EP (''Clever Disguise'' in 2008), two albums (''Outshine the Sun'' in 2011 and ''Strangers in Paradise'' in 2014) and three videos (''A Gift to Remember'', ''Better Angels'' and ''Heart of the Sun'', the last of which was a lyric video).
