Best Avantasia Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Scarecrow

A true masterpiece. It still gives me chills every some I listen to it.


My favorite song, not only because of Jorn, but because of the song itself. It has quality, power and it's a definitely one of the best songs that came out from Tobias Sommet. Keep on rocking, we want more!

It's rare for a song to have a moment that gives you chills. It's even more rare for a song to have four or five of those moments. Without a doubt my favorite Avantasia song, and one of my favorite songs in general.

2 The Seven Angels

This song is the best I ever heard, maybe even better then stairway to heaven. It has everything that a song needs: Soft parts, Hard Parts, Solos and all kind of voices all together that make a great chorus. If you never heard this song I recommend you to listen to it

I can't understand how anyone with a healthy appreciation of art can fail to see this song for the masterpiece that it is. It isn't only the best Avantasia song; it is the best symphonic metal song ever made.

Yes, Jesus Christ what a song it is. If this genre was at all popular with the general public this song would be equivalent to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. I listen to it a few times every day and never get sick of it. The part after like 8-9 minutes that starts with "I have been alone 'til a madman came along" just givs me goosebumps every time. Kudos, Mr Sammet.

This song is just awesome! Only fact that it changes tempo for about 4 times throughout it, it makes it really enjoyable even after listening to it over and over again. I would rate this 10/10 and maybe the best song of Avantasia!

4 Death is Just a Feeling

Soaring, theatrical, haunting, and even a little mournful. Just about the most perfect symphonic power metal song you could ask for. - SventheCrusader

Jon Oliva rocks, hands down! And Tobi is amazing, like always. - Metal_Treasure

What an incredible song! The chorus is pure awesomeness and the strange parts are perfect! Jon Oliva's interpretation is excellent, he seems to be really insane and hurted.

Haha the best from Angel of Babylon's album

5 Dying for an Angel

I love this song! Awesome lyrics and music.. Should easily be in top 5 of this list. Please listen to it and decide for yourself.

Only for klaus this song must be in top ten I think

Tobi and klaus good team :))

It�'s awesome! This music, this lyrics...

6 The Final Sacrifice

It's just awesome... Since it starts it's a song with full power in its lyrics and music, I recommended it to everyone who wants to start to listening this amazing group.

The first avantasia song I heard, and also the best of them all~ m/

7 The Wicked Symphony

Perfect! The story behind this song, a story of struggle, the amazing vocal stand-off, the epic intro, the fantastic and ear-catching melody and the whole song itself - just perfect

I have been a power metal and avantasia fan for years, and I can say that This is a true masterpiece, along with the seven angels and scarecrow

Avantasia has many great songs, but this one is just perfect on every aspect, amazing and powerful chorus, nice ''contrast'' between major and minor parts, the high and low's, and perfectly timed transitions

8 Avantasia

Awesome chorus... Time telling me to say farewell but I knew that I would fight hell and I know we will... Go for another time you can see for another time, we'll be free for no more farewell...

9 The Toy Master

It features Alice Cooper, what can be better!
Alice is the godfather of shock rock and metal!


10 Let the Storm Descend Upon You

So many epic songs, but this one is definitely a materpiece

Just a fantastic piece of art. Stunning intro, powerful chorus and fantastic singers.

A masterpiece

Epic in every possible sense.

The Contenders

11 Sign of the Cross

Greatest epic act, one of the best choruses in hard rock metal history, in the style of Dio Rainbow-Sabbath days!

It's very hard to rate any song because Avantasia has so many awesome songs so I just rate one of my favorites

Through a world of reign... THEY COME
just epic

12 The Tower

Easily the best; great harmonies, riffs and an epic tone. Should be much higher.

Great lyrics! Great Music! What greatness!

How could this be #30?
This is one of the best songs of all time.
Its perfect.
My list would be:
1. The tower
2. Reach out for the light
3. Farewell
4. Chalice if agony
5. Breaking away

A complete masterpiece

13 Another Angel Down

Fantastic song! Intro is awesome! Riffs are standart but anyway the song is perfect!

The lyrics are awesome, probably the most important moment in the wicked trilogy (y'know, guy sells his soul)

14 Cry Just a Little
15 Serpents in Paradise
16 No Return
17 Promised Land

Avantasia have a stupid amount of brilliant songs, it's impossible to choose the best, but I feel this one is underrated.

Hey hey hey why this one is not on the first number guys?

18 Mystery of a Blood Red Rose

Sounds a bit like Meat Loaf. Very melodic song.


19 Master of the Pendulum

One of the power metal defining song

One of the best songs of all time.
I could have voted for the tower but this one
Doesn't have any comments so fine.

Best second song from myster of time my favorit

39 The Great Mystery

This song is amazing it's like watching a theatre show song. 4 great singers battling it out for centre stage. I'm still going through albums of avantasia so far I've played from scarecrow to ghostlighs and the mystery of time is by far my best album of the lot.

An epic journey, from the begining till the end, a spectacular reunion of talented voices witch comes in a crescent wave to a shivering end

40 Ghostlights

Absolutely fantastic performance. Top notch

Great vocals. It just made me speed my Car when I'm listening to it

Kiske sings amazing. great song!

This song deserves to be a Power Metal anthem, like Emerald Sword or Black Diamond.
This is, just, mindblowing, I am speechless.

41 Neverland

This one should be in the first 5.

42 Lucifer

The Voices are just awesome

Jørn Lande... need I say more? The guy is a metal legend, he makes me proud of being norwegian, he is an idol for me, I've met him before, he is an awesome dude, and his voice is even better. And Tobias in this song is unbelievable, such a beautiful voice and vocal range

43 The Raven Child

Epic masterpiece! - PhoenixAura81

44 Crestfallen

Crazy song! incredible song! - Teo2390

45 Down in the Dark
46 Shelter from the Rain
47 Carry Me Over

I like it, it is a song best from AVANTASIA, it�'s listing in americalatina, over all in Ecuador, POWER METALL!

48 Stargazers

It's a really good song, it knows how to build up

Great feeling through the entire nine minutes; Sammet along wiht Lande, Kiske and Hartmann make the thing magic through guitar solos and winding bass parts. Symphonic harmonies along with powerful parts and an electric chorus make for a dark yet beautiful piece.

49 States of Matter
50 Breaking Away

Amazing track, solos & voices...
