Best Dark Tranquility Songs

scourge

The Top TenXW

1Terminus

Rock with it, lean with it, an amazing song with nice intro and deep growling voice. - scourge

Most melodious intro till date
One wont get bored even after hearing it a thousand times

2Misery's Crown

Such a haunting, melancholy melody that will be stuck with you for days. Do NOT pass this song up!

The overall performance of the band on the track is absolutely brilliant. The vocals are impressive as always, the instrumentals aren't the most difficult or convoluted but meld beautifully to lend melody to a metal song... Not the kind of thing you hear everyday

If anyone ever claimed that extreme metal could not melodic, this would be the track you'd play them first to prove otherwise.

Misery's Crown, In My Absence, Uniformity, Terminus and Lost To Apathy. - EvilAngel

3Lost to Apathy

Epic rifts, unreal chorus. I'm so glad I saw them perform it live. So many top choices but this song edges them out for mine

What a flawless song. Its brutal, unrelenting and has a beautiful solo. The vocals are very intimate and done with a lot of passion. The lyrics are beautiful and thought provoking. Its as if the singer is talking to you, criticizing your weakness and telling you to try to be stronger instead of just ignoring the problems hoping they will go away.

Filter the nonsense and laugh at what's left
Indecision/nonvision
Matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over, lost to apathy

6In My Absence

I've never heard a metal song quite like this.
Powerful rhythms, harmonies, lyrics and vocals interact to create an urgent, somber and poignant atmosphere; combining a sense of decay and loss with determination and growth.
Brilliantly done in every respect.

The drums the riffs are the best of DT I ever heard. This song is a must hear for all metal fans out there. Me being drawn to Dark Tranquility was because of this song, it rocks on every level.

This song evokes so many emotions of frustration and saddness, probably one of the saddest songs lyric-wise, but that doesn't mean it don't kick some alligator behind. I could name a bunch of other perfect D.T. songs, like Lethe, Lost to Apathy, the first 8 songs on Damage Done, even None Becoming on Construct. No band has every been as good for almost twenty years as this one. And I mean every album is at least an 8/10. Several are 10/10. Best metal band ever that consistently kills it on each album, should be more popular, but the vocal style is hard for most sheeple to even give a second thought. People don't know what they're missing in this genre...if they only knew.

11The Mundane and the Magic

First song I've heard from them, so it will always hold a place in my heart. And it sounds amazing with the female vocals

Awesome... Simply awesome.. Stannes vocals give me shivers... His clean vocals add a nice effect to the song as do the girls

Nice female vocals and Stanne's voice is amazing.

When I listen to this song "I think I have lost my language"

13My Negation

His best vocal performance. Inside the Particle Storm has his second best one. - TrappedInsideIt

14The Gallery

The gallery are 10 times better that terminus simply rocks you out just by hearing the intro

15ThereIn

There in is a song no one can ever create... The clean vocals add a extreme sense of melody... And the echo is just awesome

Laugh out loud, I thought that this song was at the top place, but it is at 17th place. This song does not deserve this poor place at all!

I think this is the bit where you have some awesome melody

16What Only You Know

Their best song. Hands down.

17Cathode Ray Sunshine

I heard this song first on Brutal Legend and I was automatically attracted to it by the excellent melodic beginning. Ever since then I started listening to more of this great band - PsychoSandman33

Amazing melodic intro and beautiful song as a whole! It's awe inspiring and one of the reasons why I love Swedish bands

This is one of my all time favourite songs ever! The intro pumps me up and makes me wanna lead the charge of a battle - wolphert
