Best Symphonic Metal Songstruemetal
The Top Ten
This 10 minute masterpiece is what symphonic metal should be. A beautiful but haunting vocal performance accompanied by great riffs and an amazing orchestral arrangement. This is easily the best symphonic metal song ever recorded. This should defiantly be #1 The Poet and the Pendulum, Emerald Sword, and Our Solemn Hour are also top notch symphonic metal tracks.
This should be #1! It's the greatest symphonic metal song!
If you haven't heard this song, then you've definitely never experienced true eargasm. It builds up slowly until about 8:22 where you'll begin to feel yourself levitate.
Blind Guardian nailed this subgenre and in no time became the best in the business. - Metal_Treasure
Pleasantly surprised to find it this high. - Elina
