Best Symphonic Metal Songs

The Top TenXW

1Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

Blind Guardian nailed this subgenre and in no time became the best in the business. - Metal_Treasure

2Ghost Love Score - Nightwish

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.
