Best Iced Earth Songs

Iced Earth is an American heavy metal band from Tampa, Florida that combines influences from thrash metal, power metal, progressive metal, opera, speed metal and the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.

The Top Ten

1 Melancholy Melancholy

Has by far the best lyrics, sound, beat and everything basically this is number 1.

Definitely Iced Earth's magnum opus.

Not by far but my favourite followed by "watching over me", "I died for you" and "Pure Evil" and a lots of other Songs.

Excellent rhythm and melody and very beautiful's a song that travels you

2 Dante's Inferno Dante's Inferno

I have to go for this one, just for packing in so much, but there are plenty from the first three albums.

Do people not listen to the early stuff or just genuinely prefer the stripped-down later albums? I enjoy those too, but the first three are some of the best metal albums.

Denial is the reason for their suffering!

Epic song and, despite being 16 minutes long, one of my most played. - djh101

There are no words to explain how epic this song is. It is wicked, dark and triumphant throughout every transition, sound effect and layer of hell.

The masterpiece... and the Athen's live version is awesome!

3 Dracula Dracula

You know what's funny? People say this is the best one after melancholy, and lyrically they couldn't be further from each other.

My personal number one, believing in god myself I wouldn't have believed anti-Christianity could be this beautiful. I like to pretend it's Dracula's sentiments, resentul after having his loved one being wronged horribly.

You can't feel but empathize with this defiant, mad Dracula.

Well it's not really anti-Christianity, it's more GOD WHY IS MY LIFE SO SAD? - Killew

Best Iced Earth song ever, beautiful beginning and then it starts kicking ass, it's awesome

My favourite song from Horror Show. Without doubt. - IronSabbathPriest

This track is awesome
Its by far the best power metal track that I've known in my entire life
Specially the vocal part...

Even if you don't like John Greeley, you have to appreciate the epicness of this song. Great ending to a great album. I'd like to hear Gene Adam sing it. - djh101

Awesome track! Greely sounds like Rob Halford. The vocals improved a lot on this album. - IronSabbathPriest

This song and Declaration Day are my absolute favourite Iced Earth songs - this captures the horror feeling of the omen and I would say it could be in my top 10 favourite songs of all time! Epic Song! - Grundapants

I have to admit, the first time I heard this song, it scared me. It's one of the best songs from Horror Show. I love it. But it scares me. - IronSabbathPriest

How this song is languishing outside the Top 10 is beyond me. This is the most chilling song of all time and along with Burnt Offerings and Gettysburg stands head and shoulders above the rest of Iced Earth's catalogue.

This song is a Masterpiece. Definitely should be top 10

The Newcomers

? Burning Times Burning Times

One of the greatest songs by them ever better live with stu on vocals and the bells in the beginning are just badass

? The Coming Curse The Coming Curse

Iced Earth's greatest and most powerful song. The lyrics, about "the wicked one" coming to wipe out all mankind, are simply intense. Matt Barlow's vocals are absolutely perfect for the style and epic-ness of this song. The opening guitar riff is one of John Schaffer's most memorable.

Great song to jam to. Should be ranked #1.

By the way I am talking about the original version, NOT the remake with Ripper Owens. Although I am a fan of Ripper Owens, the original version with piano and Matt Barlow on vocals is MUCH better.

"The Coming Curse, your anti-Christ, I am the watcher's eye

I vindicate and cleanse the Earth of all mankind"

The intro goes on maybe a few seconds too long, and so does the outro, but the heart of this song is perfectly constructed, and I don't throw the word perfect around often. It is a concise, poetic, melodic, summary of the story Jon came up with, which is kind of an Antichrist, Illuminati, Watcher hybrid.

You couldn't ask for a better closer to "Something Wicked This Way Comes! " - IronSabbathPriest

The Best song from iced earth! Ruthless and evil YEAH!
