The Top Ten
A tough choice between this and The Call of Ktulu, but I like this song just a bit more. Both pieces are absolutely amazing. Incredible work by the great Cliff Burton. May his soul rest in piece. I would even go so far as to say it's the best song on the entire album if Master of Puppets wasn't on the album.
It's hard to put all these beautiful Metallica master pieces in order. However, I more often choose Orion over others.
My favorite metal song.
Absolutely beautiful.V 4 Comments
Hear.. Trust me you won, t regret for me it is better than orion.. But orion is still kick-ass song anyway - nooreldeen
If you think this song doesn't have any lyrics then you are listening to it wrong...
Orion is good but Voice Of The Soul is great
Definitely this is the best instrumental ever! It brings out emotion in me every time I listen to it.Orion is also legendary but this, this one is a masterpiece of a song!V 5 Comments
My favorite instrumental of all time. Suicide and redemption should not be on here though when you consider songs like musical death and hypnosis by testament, into the lungs of hell, dialectic chaos, and absolution by megadeth, and DEFINITELY pulling teeth.
Come On It is their Heaviest Instrumental and it has a creepy theme.
Don't get me wrong I love Orion, I just think The Call of Ktulu is better. RIP Cliff Burton - Kluuz
The screaming bass makes song perfect फिर me. It's like the screams of ktulu.V 1 Comment
Masterpiece with some sad, but badass melodies!
Seriously, listen to this with subwoofers, volume cranked, all the way though, and tell me it's not an amazing experience.
Some of the most amazing guitar playing that I have ever heard. Neo-classical guitar at its best. It just sounds dark and evil and just simply awesome. There is real emotion and incredible technicality in this song. Live version is even better.
One of Steve Harris' best works, Dave Murray had a fun time writing another legato solo on this track and Dennis Stratton, my favourite instrumental song from the best band in the world
You can really see the technical prowess of Dream Theatre in this song. Just close your eyes & let the song take you over
This is better than orion...
This is my favorite metal instrumental - cjWriter1997
This song is a life-changing experience.V 1 Comment
Very Underrated just because it's on Death Magnetic. I would place it at number 6. It's a beautiful song!
Whoever thinks death magnetic is underrated needs to be punched in the teeth several times
They were all teenagers when they recorded this, and their drummer was 14. Not to mention it's 10 minutes of pure thrash awesomeness.
Great pure aggressive thrash
Orion is hands down #1 but how this can’t match I don’t know
The guitars on this track sound like pure ear candy.
Fun fact: this song has 108 time signature changes!
Simply kick ass song lisent to it man!
This is pretty underrated, - asdsees
When I listen all songs above and listen to this one and I really impressed. Why this song so down below? This should be number 1! I've put this as one of the best music I've ever heard a whole my life! A 16 minutes epic masterpiece! No doubt, THE BEST on this list.
Easily the most epic piece of metal ever recorded
Underrated, COME ON! Who were the idiots that didn't vote for this!
SO UNDERRATED IT HURTS - awesomedp900
Ritchie Blackmore's guitar speaking... - Metal_Treasure
This one is magical - as if it comes from a different world. - Metal_Treasure
A very great instrumental, indeed. I have seen some people say that it should be longer. But in my opinion, I think it's perfect. - ElectricCrown92
This is amazing - flamenco and metal guitars. - Metal_Treasure
Perhaps the greatest piece of music in history
Any song by Jason is pure gold
This and One are probably the only Metallica songs I like. And from a fan of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, I can say that this is one hell of an awesome cover of Ennio Morricone's masterpiece.
