Amazing song from an amazing band. RIP Ronnie James Dio. - CostcoHotDogs

BESt song on here in my opinion the drums are great

A masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

4 Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest

My 2nd favorite Judas Priest song. Technically, it’s 6 minutes and 51 seconds long, but I don’t see why it can’t be on the list because of 9 seconds. - CostcoHotDogs

Severely underrated song from an underrated album. - CostcoHotDogs

A masterpiece of the 21st century and a definition of epicness.

The Contenders

11 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

It's like 17-18 minutes long but I never get bored of it. Great riffs and vocals. - Metal_Treasure

12 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

@CostcoHotDogs - because you said you like long epic songs, here you are - 14 minutes of epicness (find the re-recorded version of 2012, the song has several versions).
Lyrics also tell an epic story - they are about Cassandra and the final days of Troy (based on The Iliad by Homer and on the Aeneid by Virgil) - Metal_Treasure

14 I Am - Theocracy

Another flawless composition - Metal_Treasure

15 The Scarecrow - Avantasia

This song is not metal, its not even hard rock. Its progressive rock. - Lucretia

Nothing can get more epic than an epic metal band playing together with a full symphonic orchestra. - Metal_Treasure
