The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Locomotive Breath - Jethro Tull
22Viginti Trees - Tool

This song was basically meant to synchronise with Wings Part 1 & 2 of Tools 10.000 Days Album!
When you do this in the right way, it reveals a new much bigger song, that is just...wow... - CastlevaniaFanboy128

23Lateralus - Tool

Lateralus used the Fibonacci-Sequence in its melody and lyrics! It's absolutely insane to hear a song, like this! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

24Summit - Giant Squid
25Majesty - Blind Guardian

This is one of the fastest metal songs with clean vox (and also pretty heavy) but it opens with a waltz by Johann Strauss II ('The Blue Danube'). - Metal_Treasure

26Stargazer - Rainbow

Again, arabic scales with radial symmetry in a metal song. The song is about Egypt. - Metal_Treasure

27Still Life - Iron Maiden

There's a hidden message at the beginning which could only be understood by playing the song backwards. This was a joke and an intended swing back at the critics who had accused Iron Maiden of being Satanic. The backwards-message features Nicko McBrain mimicking actor John Bird's impression of Idi Amin, uttering the following phrase "What ho said the t'ing with the three 'bonce', do not meddle with things you don't understand...", followed by a belch. The phrase itself is taken from the satirical album The Collected Broadcasts of Idi Amin (1975) by Bird and Alan Coren. - Metal_Treasure
