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.

I've listened to long metal song and I'm honestly not a fan of this one. I listened to it many times, sorry, I just don't think it deserves to be number one.

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.

The dynamics of this song are phenomenal. There isn't a more epic song in all of power metal. This isn't a slight against BG's other songs but nothing quite does it like the power metal ballad of Cassandra's misfortunes.

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

Close your eyes, play the song and imagine you are in a magical forest of the Middle-earth

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

Check out, that song at Wacken Live Show, I beg you also speechless, then.

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.

3 Mirror, Mirror Mirror, Mirror Cover Art

This is by far the best Blind Guardian song ever! Epic and stunning!

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.

Mirror Mirror on the wal

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.

4 Nightfall

Nightfall defines the genre of power metal. Powerful vocals, epic melodies, cool solo... People who don't like the genre fall in love with this song. It should be no. 1. No... Wait... It is no. 1.

Amazing song from and amazing band.

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

If you must listen to just one song from these guys, choose Nightfall.

5 Wheel of Time Wheel of Time Cover Art

I think this is the most epic song of all time.

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.

Pure epic! Nothing more to say.

One of the best orchestral metal songs of all time.

6 Sacred Worlds Sacred Worlds Cover Art

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!

Any list of the greatest symphonic metal songs that doesn't contain this song should not be taken seriously.

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.

The power of this song is unbelievable. It's a true masterpiece.

7 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.

One of the most unique songs you will ever hear

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

8 Valhalla Valhalla Cover Art

The very best for chorus

Brilliant song, Hansi and Kai's voices work so well together. Plus who doesn't just wanna scream that chorus out!

Also one of the must haves on a concert!

Amazing song to hear live!

9 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.

The DRUMS!.. Such an amazing sound

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

Very well done.. somewhat different has a special something to it

10 The Throne The Throne Cover Art

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

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.

Great Song of their great 2015 effort!

This song makes Mirror Mirror sound like some poppy generic song

The Contenders

11 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.

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

Best song I've ever heard

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.

12 Majesty Majesty Cover Art

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

Best Blind Guardian song

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).

Their first, and NO DOUBT their best.

13 Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) Cover Art

Awesome! The most epic song I've heard!

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

Time Stand Still (At The Iron Hill) is probably one of the best songs I have ever herd, Almost every single role is protrayed perfectly

First song I heard

14 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.

I'm a fan of movies based on Talkien's books so I would say this is my second favourite song by the band after Bard's song.

Simply epic. Should be the soundtrack for the movie

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.

15 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.

16 Into the Storm Into the Storm Cover Art

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

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

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).

17 Theatre of Pain

So powerful, epic and amazing refrain

This song introduced me to Blind Guardian should be higher

Masterpiece.

The most underrated bg song

18 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

Yes, the acoustic version is awesome, too.

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

The acoustic version is one of the best, the regular one has to much screameo

19 Banish from Sanctuary

Amazing chorus, and the lyrics have a profound reflection about religion and intolerance.

The solo for this track is pure genuis, one of the best and most memorable melodic speed metal solos in history.

Banish From Sanctuary in one of my favorite BG songs - aggressive and fast. Love Hansi's raw voice and the solo is really amazing, too. The LIVE version is even better - from 'Imaginations Through the Looking Glass' .

Great song. powerful theme!

20 The Ninth Wave The Ninth Wave Cover Art

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.

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.

We will bring the new age, reborn as aeon gods! As aeon gods we break through!

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

21 Time What is Time Time What is Time Cover Art

Why is this at the Bottom? Top 15 easily

This song is one of their best

I also think it's one of their best - it's on my personal top 10. Its live version from 'Tokyo Tales' is great.

The intro in this song is fantastic.

22 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.

Awesome song and Hansi's voice is buttery smooth here. I'd say top 15-20 (#56 is too low for this tune).

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

Number one blind gaurdian song for me. Majesty needs to be higher as well

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

Great song.. Just love it.
Shelton

One of my all time favorites!

24 The Bard's Song (The Hobbit) The Bard's Song (The Hobbit) Cover Art

One of their best songs! This should be close to the top.

Totally underrated Song

25 Ride Into Obsession Ride Into Obsession Cover Art

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

Another Wheel of Time based song. Y'can't beat them.

Laughably low rating. Pure epic blind gaurdian savagery
