Best Two Steps From Hell Songs

If you haven't heard of em, you don't deserve Zimmer's or Newton's or any of the movie soundtracks.

The Top TenXW

1Heart of Courage

The way this song builds up is just amazing. I first heard it on a living planet commercial and thought I it was awesome so later my dad found it and we bought the song (dad is a little hard to please with songs).

This song is great! Though, there is a lot of others I like... But sadly they are not on this list Still, Heart of Courage is awesome. I could listen to it time and time again. In fact this is what will be playing at my funeral. Two steps from hell rocks!

This song is perfect to what I like. It has a good, fast beat. The music is LOUD. The music is epic. It sounds like a hero, trying to conquer the hell this band is about. Gathering up courage for the eventually epic fight. Truly a song from the gods.

I wake up to this song every morning. It really starts your day off right to wake up to music that sounds like you might be going to slay a dragon or lead an army

2Protectors of the Earth

This song just makes my heart go numb and broken. It feels as if I had got goose bumps. It always gives me the strength the hope the courage and the will of fire to go and face any problems and to be able to succeed them and fight them to the very end

When listening to this with my eyes closed, all I can think of is me, leading an army into battle, sword in hand, charging against Satan's army. I confront Satan, the battle still raging in the background, as our blades clash, causing a great and fiery twang sound, until my sword cleanly cuts his head, I catch it, and raise it to everyone. The fighting stops, and all kneel before me, forever knowing me as the ultimate protector of Earth.

It is best song ever. I for first listen it in Mass Effect 3 and it is best.

So very good the music has a lot of emotion

Featured in the PS4 commercial... Stunning piece! It starts off quiet and each version of the melody builds up, until it reaches an incredible climax of vocals and horns. One of the best pieces I have ever heard...

Gotta love Skyworld and this song is one of the best from the album.

This is one of the beast pieces of moving music I've ever heard. The transition from one movement to the next is masterfully done. The decided pirate theme reminds me of being free to roam the seas at will and feel the salt spray hitting my face. A very motivational piece of work. I absolutely love it and will have to incorporate it somehow into a memorial disc I'm working on.

One of very few songs that can make me cry. This is romantic. This is sad. This is beautiful. This is a masterpiece. This is unique! BLACKHEART IS GENUINELY THE BEST LOVE SONG EVER!

Its super awesome and epic at the same time its fast paced.. Makes me think of Avenged Sevenfold crossed over with Pirates Of The CARIBBEAN

Its a magestic song, wich express something that no every symphonic song can express, what I'm trying to say is that the song express that pure majesticness that people is looking on a song without being too complex.

Its such an awesome and the best energy releaser... Kind of gets you into such a real and different world... Mainly helps you to concentrate... You have to experience it to know it. Check it out

This one is epic a legend

5Dragon Rider

The best of the whole lot! It has so much power, passion, strength, and a great beat. Not that "Heart of Courage isn't good, it's excellent! But "Dragon Rider" will always top my list!

As I listen to this song I see myself leading my small but highly skilled Army into battle. I am a shapeshifter, but have not yet had the time to master my powers. We begin the battle, pushing forward as our skill takes the enemy by surprise, and it temporarily looks good. However, they soon recover, and my best friend is trapped in their ring. Reaching inside myself, I become a dragon, flying over them, rescuing my brother in battle. We continue fighting, eventually pushing to a victory. It's a great song.

2 Minutes of glorious brilliance

Actually, whenever I get on Space Mountain, I quickly get my iPod and headphones out and turn on this song. - Mcgillacuddy

Best, no question. Archangel, do you even lift? This song really rocks, especially at the end of a workout.

This song makes me feel so inspired. I feel like it's generally pretty overshadowed, with black heart taking so much of this albums spotlight, and it makes me really happy to see this amazing song so high on the list.

Every time I listen to it I feel as if I am standing in a very beautiful, ice covered landscape untouched by the human intervention. Really great song. Please vote for it.

The crescendo is amazing

Oh goodness. Did I just defeat darkness? Save the world? Read the best book in the universe? See the best movie in the universe? Win an epic sword fight against the enemy of the free-people?

9To Glory

This the ultimate epic song. There's just no other way to put it.

I listen to this song all the time whether it be homework or just to calm myself down. It has a combination of epicness and just being dramatic. I usually don't like rating my songs but I have no choice with this song. I would give it 9001/10 stars.

The epic tune combined with the fast-paced background makes for one song that just fills you with courage, resolve, and strength.

Absolutely incredible melody

10El Dorado

Great song from beginning to end. Has that South American feel to it, that builds into an epically paced blockbuster near the end.

It's just so awesome listening from two thirds of the way in. It's like you've just discovered a massive secret to the universe, somewhere on the planet from the movie Avatar.

Great mix of different styles. The songs builds up greatly, with one of the most epic melodies at the climax. Never gets repetitive or boring, and succeeds in entertaining you throughout the whole experience.

This is one of the best epic song I've ever heard. It has an incredible melody and it has no repetitions.

The Newcomers

?Across the Blood Water

The Contenders


This song is making its appearance everywhere lately and the music has a haunting and light-hearted quality to it. I've heard it in the trailers of Anna Karenina and Joss Whedon's film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. There is a certain magic to it that you just can't deny! It is a perfect blend of epic triumph and refreshing innocence.

One of the best they have ever made! The simple piano piece introduces you to this masterpiece and the playful way it builds up and connects to the main melody is just breathtaking. I'm always in awe when I'm listening to this cream of the crop.

It's the perfect soundtrack for a special event the way it goes in crescendo. Nice and beautiful.

Should be number 1!

12United We Stand, Divided We Fall

This song is intense. While other songs have a build up to the intense portion of the song and then fall off toward the end, this song gets you going from the 1-second mark. For example, Heart of Courage has a slow build up to an elating, yet simultaneously mono-paced, mid section before dying like a dog toward the end. When comparing these two - as well as comparing many others - United We Stand, Divided We Fall will almost always win because of its consistent intensity and ability to evoke a physical reaction within me like I'm getting ready to fight.

I've had trouble waking up to my alarm in the past, so I replaced it with this. Problem solved. It's hard to sleep when your whole body is convinced that the final chaotic battle for the fate of the cosmos is happening a few inches away on your nightstand, gilded with the crescendos of wailing angels. This needs to be number two behind To Glory.

The unrelenting intensity of this song is simply unparalleled. Tormented solos, heroic buildups, and defiant/relentless stretches of steady pacing all have their place in the genre of epic music, but this is not the song for them. This is the song for action.

This song has the best vocals and is the most consistent song that pleases me every time I hear it

Slow but unbelievably majestic. Buildup is super steady and the climax is prime. The loudest point reminds me of that last push in a competition that propels a team to victory. All around great song

Such a slow and magnificent buildup. Heard it more than 700 times and still loving it. Gives me goosebumps every single time.

I play this song when I am playing strategy games. - Tornadocracy

This single best song I ever heard.

Not only is this song ' epic, it's one of the best motivational pieces TSFH has released. That's saying a lot considering some of the other awesome songs that have topped this list. It simply moves me in so many good ways.

Just plug this song, mute the volume of the final fantasy 14 battle with dragon video, and see the song give meaning to the video

The bass line half way through makes a flood of shivers charge down my spine. A truly amazing piece of music.

How the hell is this number 13?! It's one of their most well known pieces!

15Norwegian Pirate

Tension, drama, momentum and joy. Epic dynamic piece.

Will conquer the sea alone without a pirate

Amazing mystery, wonder, and immense power in one song that I argue easily rivals Protectors of the Earth and Heart of Courage.

One of the best, if not the best, pirate songs ever written. Amazing.

I really love the way the song builds up. It starts soft and gradually becomes more louder, more powerful. I can actually imagine myself on a battlefield, about to fight the enemy.

Whenever I listen to this song, I can feel tingles going up my spine. The same experience should happen to you when you listen to this brilliant masterpiece.

This song is, in my opinion, their best one. It just has a special atmosphere and tune that gradually becomes more and more epic. I get goosebumps practically every time I listen to it.

18Undying Love

Epic and romantic. Tragic and vast. It's my favorite song by Two Steps from Hell. It conveys their expansive feeling of awe and heart wrenching movement of music.

Sometimes I wish their songs were longer so I could keep listening instead of pressing repeat.

This is probably the greatest Two Steps song ever.

Love the ending! Very fitting piece of art for a professional trailer. I have used it in my videos before, great piece of music, everyone should listen throughout the whole thing

Just the one. Simply a masterpiece in the all epic music world. I think the song is the more intense of the two steps from hell discography. The rising and the moment that the song explode is just... unbelievable. I have shivers each time I listen to it T. T

An amazing piece of music, gets your blood pumping and your heart pounding. I am surprised this piece is not further up the list. Also works very well in the Mass Effect 3 Cinematic trailer, well worth a view!

It sounds so dark and mysterious. - kevlarstargate

This song is awesome, calm at the beginning to become very epic, it reminds me the greatness of the space and its void.

This should've been in the Interstellar soundtrack, not just the trailer lol
