Top 10 Best Blind Guardian Songs

The very best of music created by German power metal band Blind Guardian.
The Top Ten
1 And Then There Was Silence And Then There Was Silence Cover Art

There is no song more epic than this.. Period. As someone who prefers metal but listens to everything from polka to classical to metal to rap to country.. There is nothing more epic and uplifting - it lifts you up.. And up.. And up again.. Brilliant songwriting, brutal riffs, amazing melodies and harmonies.. Hands down spectacular.

The GREATEST piece of music I've ever heard. I've been an avid Metalhead for years, and I truly believe this is the absolute pinnacle of musicianship. Joyous and wondrous melodies abound, amazing lyrics, and just an absolutely huge and epic feel. This is the song I've listened to most and dare I say my favorite. Blind Guardian are MASTERS of the craft.

WOW! What can I say about such a great masterpiece of power metal! It should be in every top ten power metal songs. It has so many epic parts that you don't know which one is the best... It's like too many songs in just one.

This song is absolutely spellbinding. It's DELICIOUSLY epic, the vocals are amazing, and the instrumentals are amazing. This song is so amazing that it's my fourth favorite song of all time. We need more music like this.

2 The Bard's Song (In the Forest) The Bard's Song (In the Forest) Cover Art

This song is amazing, it's the only song on all the music history that the crowd sings the whole song at the same time. Thanks to Blind Guardian for this.

Bards is indeed a central piece in fantasy and story telling and this song is probably one of the best about them and about fantasy in general.

Such a soft and calm song can be so powerful. My second favorite Blind Guardian song (my favorite is And Then There was Silence).

This is, for sure, the best Blind Guardian's song ever, certainly should be on the top of the list.

3 Mirror, Mirror Mirror, Mirror Cover Art

I don't quite understand what the deal with song is, it's an excellent song, but it definitely isn't the best song in the album Nightfall in Middle Earth, Time Stands Still is by far the best song from Nightfall, and probably Blind Guardian overall best, so I don't know why Mirror Mirror is 3rd.

The Top 5 Songs From Nightfall in Middle Earth

1. Time Stands Still At The Iron Hill
2. Into The Storm
3. Nightfall
4. Noldor (Dead Winter Reigns)
5. Mirror Mirror

An epic song stuck right in the middle of one of Blind Guardian's best albums. The song builds up to a chorus which that is pure, unadulterated distillation of the fantasy genre.

The riff and the way the vocals go along the line of the riff is what make this song the best one from them. You once listen to it and you'll know how hard yet stable life is.

Absolutely fantastic and exhilarating song! I'm a huge Blind Guardian fan but this song has a special place among my absolute favorites!

4 Nightfall Nightfall Cover Art

The voice of Sir Hansi, these lyrics, these melodies, THIS chorus. Nothing in this song is to throw away; everything is perfect. To me it is the best song from this band. Simply epic.

Wonderful Lyrics, amazing music, and incredible epicness

"Nightfall
Quietly crept in and changed us all
Nightfall
Quietly crept in and changed us all
Nightfall
Immortal land lies down in agony! "

I love this song.. I love also the other songs.. But nightfall is... Nightfall.. Is special
I'm Italy.. Sorry for my English..

Nightfall is just magic. All their songs have this "magic" blind guardian touch, but Nightfall is just a bomb of feelings... Of epicness.

5 Wheel of Time Wheel of Time Cover Art

An amazing song about an amazing book series. Book based songs are always great.
You guys may know all of the lyrics, but I understand all the terminology. I suggest that you go and read the books, pronto.

Really epic. I was thoroughly impressed by every aspect of this song. One thing to notice is that the band paid tribute to Robert Jordan very vividly as the song is based on Jordan's novel series of the same name. Kudos to Blind Guardian ;).

I remember being hyped for At the Edge of Time at age 12. When I first heard this song... it blew me away. Sick song.

Okay...I love And Then There Was Silence, but it can't top the pure epic essence of this masterpiece.

6 Sacred Worlds Sacred Worlds Cover Art

This should definitely switch place with Wheel of Time, and that over-produced garbage from A Night At the Opera shouldn't be number one. Either, this or, Journey Through the Dark should seize the crown with disdain. Just because a song is over 10 minutes long doesn't necessarily mean it's epic.

I really don't feel guilty loving this song to death, as it's from the garbage album, which I intensely loathe.
If it wasnt for this song, I would've done the same thing with this album, that I did with Drum Thutter's "Train of Thought", ie battered, shattered and dumped it in the big piles of rotting garbage.

This is the greatest song ever made. The intro is perfect. The lyrics are awesome. There is no better song that Blind Guardian has ever made.

Play this one for all who are down on hard rock and metal and challenge them come up with a better piece of music than Sacred Worlds!

7 Valhalla Valhalla Cover Art

Also one of the must haves on a concert!

The very best for chorus

Amazing song to hear live!

Should be on the top 3.
A perfect combination of hansi kurch and kai hansen.

8 Battlefield Battlefield Cover Art

This song isn't for most people trying out power metal, but damn it has an unmatched epic quality to it. One day I will surround myself with speakers and blast the crap out of this amazing song.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G drumming, amazing guitars, amazing vocals and lyrics. Too bad they don't play it live anymore.

It hasn't been a single week I haven't heard it at least once, since its 2002 release.

9 The Ninth Wave The Ninth Wave Cover Art

Maybe the best from the 2015 album? Or The Throne? Or The Holy Grail? Or Sacred Mind? Or Distant Memories?
I don't know - love them all! But I think The Ninth Wave is the most impressive.

The choir in the beginning is booming, ominous, and epic! The chorus is phenomenal and the entire song is just one Rollercoaster ride of awesome. This song is underrated.

This song is the first Blind Guardian song I ever heard, and is still by far my favorite. Its unmatched in epicness by most other songs I've heard.

Just incredible, through and through. The build up is intense and the culmination is equally satisfying. Great song.

10 Theatre of Pain
The Contenders
11 Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) Cover Art

Not only am I surprised that this is so low, but I'm shocked at some of the songs that are ahead of it. Just one man's opinion, but there should be a lot more songs from Twilight World- Nightfall dominating the top of this list. This is one of the songs that best shows off how Blind Guardian is able to combine heavy metal with fantasy elements. Which is something almost impossible to do. I know they're extremely successful but I still think they're under appreciated. Wow, I'm going to get hate for this one but I think these guys bury Helloween. Like its not even close... but the latter still get ALL the respect. Now they DID innovate the genre to an extent but I think BG is the better band by far.

Only song I've heard by them and I'm already addicted!

Awesome! The most epic song I've heard!

First song I heard

12 Bright Eyes Bright Eyes Cover Art

This song always comes with shiver on my skin. Instrumental greatness of this song can't be told in any words. Just beautiful. For me number one.

You could listen this all Day and night Long, never gets old.

Epic song (like most of Guardian's work), sends chills down my spine. Amazing vocal performance by Hansi

One of the first I heard and one of the best.

13 Majesty Majesty Cover Art

Majesty is awesome guys. Great chorus. One of the best speed metal songs out there and of course - my personal favorite from this subgenre (alongside Banish From Sanctuary).

This song us amazing.
Should be on the top.
Thus their first song from the first album.
And it's a masterpiece.

This isn't on top? Brilliant combo of technicals and ingenuity!

14 The Throne The Throne Cover Art

The high point in a long and fun story. One of the few songs from beyond the red mirror that is easily understandable from the text without great effort. It shines for its fast pace and power.

This epic part:

"Can't you see?
It's your innocence they'll steal away
Yes, they're coming for you
They've come to deceive
You are betrayed
You admire these liars
They'll never fool me! "

This is so epic! A lot going on bit it fits really well, and a lot of varying choruses that are all equally as catchy. Great instrumentals too

One of my favorites from the 2015 album - great! I'm so proud of them.
This song is composed mostly of several choruses and pre-choruses - I've never heard anything like that!
I can't get enough of 5:30-6:30 - Hansi is unstoppable, as if he doesn't stop to take breath and only sings, sings and sings ... Awesome!

15 Lord of the Rings

This song totally and utterly blew me away when I first heard it, I have always been a huge Tolkien fan, and before discovering Blind Guardian, I used to wish that there was a good metal artist that was dedicated to Tolkien themed, fantasy genre music. When I first discovered Blind Guardian and this song they instantly became my favorite band, this is the definition of beautiful and epic music, that chorus gives me the shivers every single time I listen to it. From now on, every time I do my annual Lord Of The Rings viewing I'm going to make a playlist of Blind Guardian songs that I'm going to listen to as I'm eating dinner before the movie, with Lord Of The Rings at the end (so hyped, it's gonna be epic).This song should have been the song chosen for the end credits in the movies.

This song is amazing and my third favorite Blind Guardian song (And Then There Was Silence is number 1 and The Ninth Wave is number 2). The vocals and instrumentals are amazing. The best part about this song is these lyrics:
"Slow down and I sail on the river, Slow down and I walk to the hill"
These lyrics are probably my favorite lyrics of all time.

Found this video on youtube ( I believe it was a fan made video where they matched scenes from the movie to the song). It was absolutely beautiful and perfect, but more importantly, exposed me to the excellent Blind Guardian. I can't believe it doesn't get more exposure.

Such an intense and great song. Find the live version from the Tokyo Tales and tell everyone that it is one of the greatest live vocal performances. Because it certainly is! You just forget it's live and only the applauses at the end remind you it was live.

16 Skalds and Shadows Skalds and Shadows Cover Art

I love this song. It is so medieval-like, I can't help but love it.

I love the medieval style of the song. It's amazing.

17 Thorn Thorn Cover Art

I don't know why this one isn't more popular, it's so full of emotion and is easily in my top ten favorite songs by them, probably top five as well.

This is one of my fave songs by them - it's awesome. An ocean of deep emotions. Hansi's voice at its best. There's a very low note at the beginning, which is unforgettable.

Just epic, there isn't a better way to describe it, some of the best vocals I've ever heard from them. It's just too good to pass up on

18 Surfin' USA

Seriously Guardian? why the hell would you do a cover of this song?

They managed to pull this off!

19 Into the Storm Into the Storm Cover Art

Can't get enough of this song - killer riff, great vox. I agree it's very intense and I love it for that (same for Thorn).

The biggest problem with Blind Guardian is that they have about 50 songs that deserve to be in the top 10!

This song is what intense wants to be when it grows up.

20 Guardian of the Blind
21 Mordred's Song Mordred's Song Cover Art

The acoustic version of this song is the very best by Blind Guardian in my opinion. Not by far, but it beats The Bard's Song

Very good song, with beautiful melody and lyrics. Hansi could really transmit the feelings of Mordred and his fall as knight.

Yes, the acoustic version is awesome, too.

22 Ride Into Obsession Ride Into Obsession Cover Art

Best power metal song ever..Great tempo and amazing chorus!

23 Imaginations from the Other Side Imaginations from the Other Side Cover Art

This song is Epic. I can't understand why it's so low on the ranking. My favorite Blind guardian song

This songs hits you harder after 20+ years of listening to it and when you are 40. Happy birthday to Me

Great song.. Just love it.
Shelton

One of my all time favorites!

24 Turn the Page

Hello? Is it only me who lovers this awesome song? This Song is worth to be in top Ten!

So much energy in this song! I'm also surprised this isn't higher up.

25 Welcome to Dying

In my opinion is the loudest of the blind guardian the instruments are in perfect harmony and live is even better.
