Best Blind Guardian SongsThe very best of music created by German power metal band Blind Guardian.
The Top Ten
This is, for sure, the best Blind Guardian's song ever, certainly should be on the top of the list.
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.
Check out, that song at Wacken Live Show, I beg you also speechless, then.
Ahh, Itunes uploaded a live version as a song sample below! Awesome! - Metal_TreasureV 5 Comments
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.
It's unbelievable how 14 minutes of a song feel so short.V 10 Comments
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.
The riff and the way the vocals go along the line of the riff is what make this song the best one from them. You once listen to it and you'll know how hard yet stable life is.
In my humble opinion this is the best song they madeV 5 Comments
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.
Amazing song from and amazing band.
I love this song.. I love also the other songs.. But nightfall is... Nightfall.. Is special
I'm Italy.. Sorry for my English..
Nightfall is just magic. All their songs have this "magic" blind guardian touch, but Nightfall is just a bomb of feelings... Of epicness.V 4 Comments
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.
This is what brought me into power metalV 5 Comments
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.
Second best song they even made behind mirror mirrorV 8 Comments
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 - BeeBlue
It hasn't been a single week I haven't heard it at least once, since its 2002 release.V 4 Comments
Brilliant song, Hansi and Kai's voices work so well together. Plus who doesn't just wanna scream that chorus out!
Also one of the must haves on a concert!
A perfect combination of epic and thrashy. Chorus is so epic, Hansi rules, great solos too
Amazing song to hear live!V 5 Comments
Awesome! The most epic song I've heard!
Only song I've heard by them and I'm already addicted!
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
First song I heardV 4 Comments
I love this song. It is so medieval-like, I can't help but love it. - Merilille
Why is this at the Bottom? Top 15 easily
I also think it's one of their best - it's on my personal top 10. It's live version from 'Tokyo Tales' is great. - Metal_Treasure
I feel that this song is somewhat underrated even by the BG fans - it's awesome and 'transitional': from the early BG to a more mature and diverse BG; Hansi revealed more of his incredible vocal skills. - Metal_TreasureV 2 Comments
One of their best songs! This should be close to the top.V 1 Comment
This song totally and utterly blew me away when I first heard it, I have always been a huge Tolkien fan, and before discovering Blind Guardian, I used to wish that there was a good metal artist that was dedicated to Tolkien themed, fantasy genre music. When I first discovered Blind Guardian and this song they instantly became my favorite band, this is the definition of beautiful and epic music, that chorus gives me the shivers every single time I listen to it. From now on, every time I do my annual Lord Of The Rings viewing I'm going to make a playlist of Blind Guardian songs that I'm going to listen to as I'm eating dinner before the movie, with Lord Of The Rings at the end (so hyped, it's gonna be epic).This song should have been the song chosen for the end credits in the movies.
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! "
This isn't on top? Brilliant combo of technicals and ingenuity!
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). - Metal_Treasure
Their first, and NO DOUBT their best. - Brobusky

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! - Metal_Treasure
I love this songV 4 Comments
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.
Very well done.. somewhat different has a special something to it
One of the first I heard and one of the best.
The DRUMS!.. Such an amazing soundV 5 Comments
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
This is my fave song - it's awesome. An ocean of deep emotions. Hansi's voice at its best. There's a very low note at the beginning, which is unforgettable.
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! - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
So powerful, epic and amazing refrain
This song introduced me to Blind Guardian should be higherV 1 Comment
We will bring the new age, reborn as aeon gods! As aeon gods we break through!
The choir in the beginning is booming, ominous, and epic! The chorus is phenomenal and the entire song is just one Rollercoaster ride of awesome. This song is underrated.V 1 Comment
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 - BeeBlue
Yes, the acoustic version is awesome, too. - Metal_Treasure
Very good song, with beautiful melody and lyrics. Hansi could really transmit the feelings of Mordred and his fall as knight.V 1 Comment
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' . - Metal_Treasure
