8The Phantom of the Opera - Nightwish

9Ghost 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.
