The Top Ten

The Bard's Song (In the Forest)
This is, for sure, the best Blind Guardian's song ever, certainly should be on the top of the list.
Check out, that song at Wacken Live Show, I beg you also speechless, then.
This song is amazing, it's the only song on all the music history that the crowd sings the whole song at the same time. Thanks to Blind Guardian for this.
[Newest]Ahh, Itunes uploaded a live version as a song sample below! Awesome!

2Mirror, Mirror
This is by far the best Blind Guardian song ever! Epic and stunning!
An epic song stuck right in the middle of one of Blind Guardian's best albums. The song builds up to a chorus which that is pure, unadulterated distillation of the fantasy genre.
Mirror Mirror on the wal
[Newest]Really very good song... One of my favorite songs

3And Then There Was Silence
There is no song more epic than this.. Period. As someone who prefers metal but listens to everything from polka to classical to metal to rap to country.. There is nothing more epic and uplifting - it lifts you up.. And up.. And up again.. Brilliant songwriting, brutal riffs, amazing melodies and harmonies.. Hands down spectacular.
WOW! What can I say about such a great masterpiece of power metal! It should be in every top ten power metal songs. It has so many epic parts that you don't know which one is the best... It's like too many songs in just one.
The dynamics of this song are phenomenal. There isn't a more epic song in all of power metal. This isn't a slight against BG's other songs but nothing quite does it like the power metal ballad of Cassandra's misfortunes.
[Newest]Easily the band's finest work.

Nightfall defines the genre of power metal. Powerful vocals, epic melodies, cool solo... People who don't like the genre fall in love with this song. It should be no. 1. No... Wait... It is no. 1.
I love this song.. I love also the other songs.. But nightfall is... Nightfall.. Is special
I'm italy.. Sorry for my english..
Amazing song from and amazing band.

This song isn't for most people trying out power metal, but damn it has an unmatched epic quality to it. One day I will surround myself with speakers and blast the crap out of this amazing song.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G drumming, amazing guitars, amazing vocals and lyrics. Too bad they don't play it live anymore.
One of the most unique songs you will ever hear


[Newest]This is THE best song in the world

Brilliant song, Hansi and Kai's voices work so well together. Plus who doesn't just wanna scream that chorus out!
The very best for chorus
This is my favorite

7Sacred Worlds
Play this one for all who are down on hard rock and metal and challenge them come up with a better piece of music than Sacred Worlds!
Any list of the greatest symphonic metal songs that doesn't contain this song should not be taken seriously.
This is the greatest song ever made. The intro is perfect. The lyrics are awesome. There is no better song that Blind Guardian has ever made.

This isn't on top? Brilliant combo of technicals and ingenuity!
Best Blind Guardian song
Majesty is awesome guys. Great chorus. One of the best speed metal songs out there and of course - my personal favorite from this subgenre (alongside Banish From Sanctuary).


9Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill)
Time Stand Still (At The Iron Hill) is probably one of the best songs I have ever herd, Almost every single role is protrayed perfectly
Awesome! The most epic song I've heard!
Time Stands Still is my daily dose of epicness

10Into the Storm
This song is what intense wants to be when it grows up.
The biggest problem with Blind Guardian is that they have about 50 songs that deserve to be in the top 10!


Can't get enough of this song - killer riff, great vox. I agree it's very intense and I love it for that (same for Thorn).


The Contenders

11Wheel of Time
I think this is the most epic song of all time.
I remember being hyped for At the Edge of Time at age 12. When I first heard this song... it blew me away. Sick song.
One of the best orchestral metal songs of all time.
[Newest]Pure epic! Nothing more to say.

12Bright Eyes
This song always comes with shiver on my skin. Instrumental greatness of this song can't be told in any words. Just beautiful. For me number one.
One of the first I heard and one of the best.
Very well done.. somewhat different has a special something to it
[Newest]The DRUMS!.. Such an amazing sound

13The Throne
This is so epic! A lot going on bit it fits really well, and a lot of varying choruses that are all equally as catchy. Great instrumentals too
The high point in a long and fun story. One of the few songs from beyond the red mirror that is easily understandable from the text without great effort. It shines for its fast pace and power.
One of my favorites from the 2015 album - great! I'm so proud of them.
This song is composed of several choruses - I've never heard anything like that!
I can't get enough of 5:30-6:30 - Hansi is unstoppable, as if he doesn't stop to take breath and only sings, sings and sings ... Awesome!


14Mordred's Song
Very good song, with beautiful melody and lyrics. Hansi could really transmit the feelings of Mordred and his fall as knight.
The acoustic version of this song is the very best by Blind Guardian in my opinion. Not by far, but it beats The Bard's Song


15Lord of the Rings
Simply epic. Should be the soundtrack for the movie
"One ring to the dark lord's hand
Sitting on his throne
In a land so dark
Where I have to go! "
I'll keep the ring full of sorrow
I'll keep the ring 'till I die,
Slow down and I sail on the River!
Slow down and I walk to the Hill!

I don't know why this one isn't more popular, it's so full of emotion and is easily in my top ten favorite songs by them, probably top five as well.
Just epic, there isn't a better way to describe it, some of the best vocals I've ever heard from them. It's just too good to pass up on
Best song I've ever heard

17Skalds and Shadows

18Banish From Sanctuary
The solo for this track is pure genuis, one of the best and most memorable melodic speed metal solos in history.
Banish From Sanctuary in one of my favorite BG songs - aggressive and fast. Love Hansi's raw voice and the solo is really amazing, too. The LIVE version is even better - from 'Imaginations Through the Looking Glass' .


19Theatre of Pain
This song introduced me to Blind Guardian should be higher
So powerful, epic and amazing refrain
The most underrated bg song

20The Bard's Song (The Hobbit)
One of their best songs! This should be close to the top.
