Best Avantasia Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Scarecrow

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.

This song is simply perfect! Lyrics, voice, music, rythm! Greatest song ever made! - Teo2390

One of the best songs I've heard in my entire life. Simply astonishing.

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.

One of the best metal songs ever!

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 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/

6 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

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 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

The Newcomers

? Your Love is Evil
? Shelter from the Rain

The Contenders

11 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)

12 Let the Storm Descend Upon You

A masterpiece

Epic in every possible sense.

It's simply the most epic song I'Ve ever heard.
Someone has to push the Ghostlight song, because they are simply on top of most Avantasia songs.

I think it is the best song on Ghostlights. - Metal_Treasure

13 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

14 Cry Just a Little
15 Serpents in Paradise
16 Promised Land

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

17 No Return
18 Mystery of a Blood Red Rose

Sounds a bit like Meat Loaf. Very melodic song.
