The very best of music created by German power metal band Blind Guardian.

21 The Soulforged

This is the one that got me into Blind Guardian. Amazing composition! No 4/4, verse-chorus-verse-chorus crap here!

22 Banish from Sanctuary

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' . - Metal_Treasure

23 Curse My Name

Musically this song just might top the bard's song as my favorite Blind Guardian ballad. During my first listen through of the "At the Edge of Time" album I cried when I first heard all the overlapping layers of different vocal lines in the middle of this song.

A great song crippled by being in the wrong album. This song clashes heavily with the rest of the album which is likely why it has received so little attention. Definitely worth a listen to on it's own.

Its such an amazing song. It has so many layers, and a very good melody as well. Definitely take a listen to this!

For me, this song isn't just the best of blind guardian, it's also my all-time favorite song.

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). - Metal_Treasure

27 Grand Parade

Perfectly performed solos and build up in the middle of this song.

Did anybody else notice that Hansi hit his (probably) highest note ever (5:30)?
That's beyond my expectations and understanding - usually aging lowers singers voices but Hansi goes higher (2010)... and higher (2015).
Who is Hansi Kursch, ladies and gents? - Freak of Nature? Vocal God? - Metal_Treasure

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

29 Time What is Time

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. It's live version from 'Tokyo Tales' is great. - Metal_Treasure

Also underrated. One of the songs I've heard first from BG.

One of my all time favorites!

IMAAGINATIONNSS FROM THE OTHEER SIIIDE

32 Another Stranger Me
33 The Holy Grail

One of the pearls on their 2015 album. Great tempo and pre-chorus. - Metal_Treasure

34 Surfin' USA

This isn't blind guardian's genre

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

35 Ride Into Obsession

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

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

36 The Script for My Requiem

This had always been the Quintessential Blind Guardian song for me. I am perplexed as to how it could not be on this list.

For some reason this song sounds better live, in my opinion - Metal_Treasure

37 Fly

Epic song, I love it!

This song is just a pure masterpiece. Honestly their best song

I love it, too - Hansi's voice is absolutely face-melting here; it's a proggy song with a crunchy riff. - Metal_Treasure

38 Noldor (Dead Winter Reigns)

This song is great. why isn't higher up? - JhonsV

Why isn't this song higher up? I love it!

39 Guardian of the Blind
40 The Curse of Feanor

Nice shred from start-to-finish. This is a top-notch metal song, let alone Blind Guardian.

Should be right after Nightfall, as it is on the album!

My favorite song off my favorite album- I actually think Ride into Obsession is the best BG song, but you can't beat the riffs in this one.

5/5 in my book - riff, vox, drumming, speed, everything. I guess it's unnoticed because it's one of the heavier songs on this album. - Metal_Treasure
