This song should be in the top tenV 1 Comment
Even more beautiful when you know the poignant story behind the lyrics.
OK, here's the story: Hansi (singer & lyricist) witnessed two car accidents in one week and two kids were killed - a boy and a girl.
Interpretation of the story in the song: Death took the life of the boy by mistake and to make up for it, the reaper also took the life of the girl, who his soulmate would have been in life. - Metal_Treasure
A song of incredibly moving beauty and power. The story that it illustrates is pefectly heartbeaking and adds a feeling of otherworldliness to the song. The build and release that it creates when the climax is reached is exquisite, I have seen this song leave those uninitiated in the metal genre baffled after their preconceptions are turned on their heads. It's execelent.V 1 Comment
This song left me out of words after the song ended. It's perhaps my favorite Pantera song. - Mumbizz01
This song has one of the best guitar solos ever
This is the best ballad ever
Some of the most meaningful lyrics I have ever seen and heard in a song. It easily rivals any other metal ballad out there. This song NEEDS to be mainstream!
The beginning is slow then a real drive! Love this song very much! This is my life symphony
What Went Wrong, Where have all the heroes Gone?!
This song is so meaningful & the lines are basically Incredible!
Beautiful instrumental from death metal gods death how this isn't higher blows my mind chuck schuldiner was a legend and there last album the sound of perseverance is a classic not just for death metal fans. The full album is basically a progressive death metal album and it kicks ass the only reason I can think of to why this isn't higher is because it is not a power ballad and is an instrumental DEFINITELY check this song out, you will be amazed
You don't need lyrics to touch emotions. This song proves the statement.
Chuck rules the world
My god, this song is amazing
Simply the most emotional Song
And the best singer of our time.
One of the most emotive metal ballads and one of the greatest vocal performances in metal.
There's only one metal ballad that moves me so much - Beyond the Realms of Death by Judas Priest. - Metal_Treasure
Best one, it is similar to cemetery gates but somehow more touching in my opinion.
Classy, exquisite ballad. Great guitars and vox, too. - Metal_Treasure
Why this song on 45th? This is the best slow song from judas priest until now...V 3 Comments
