Best Two Steps From Hell Songs

If you haven't heard of em, you don't deserve Zimmer's or Newton's or any of the movie soundtracks.

The Top Ten

1 Heart of Courage

The way this song builds up is just amazing. I first heard it on a living planet commercial and thought I it was awesome so later my dad found it and we bought the song (dad is a little hard to please with songs).

Could listen to this on repeat forever love it

This song is great! Though, there is a lot of others I like... But sadly they are not on this list Still, Heart of Courage is awesome. I could listen to it time and time again. In fact this is what will be playing at my funeral. Two steps from hell rocks!

My favorite
I first heard it in 2014 History TV18 documentary World Wars, from that time I am fan of this

2 Protectors of the Earth

This song gives you the feeling as if you are an ancient emperor/empress, leading your glorious army into battle against undefeatable odds. I've listened to almost every song on this list, and this takes number one spot. So epic

This song just makes my heart go numb and broken. It feels as if I had got goose bumps. It always gives me the strength the hope the courage and the will of fire to go and face any problems and to be able to succeed them and fight them to the very end

Epicness... Only Epicness.

When listening to this with my eyes closed, all I can think of is me, leading an army into battle, sword in hand, charging against Satan's army. I confront Satan, the battle still raging in the background, as our blades clash, causing a great and fiery twang sound, until my sword cleanly cuts his head, I catch it, and raise it to everyone. The fighting stops, and all kneel before me, forever knowing me as the ultimate protector of Earth.

Best song period. 'enough said.

Featured in the PS4 commercial... Stunning piece! It starts off quiet and each version of the melody builds up, until it reaches an incredible climax of vocals and horns. One of the best pieces I have ever heard...

This is absolutely amazing..gives me goosebumps every single time I listen to this...

Gotta love Skyworld and this song is one of the best from the album.

4 To Glory

This the ultimate epic song. There's just no other way to put it.

Awesome epic battle music!

So epic you just can't take it.

I listen to this song all the time whether it be homework or just to calm myself down. It has a combination of epicness and just being dramatic. I usually don't like rating my songs but I have no choice with this song. I would give it 9001/10 stars.

5 Archangel

Its super awesome and epic at the same time its fast paced.. Makes me think of Avenged Sevenfold crossed over with Pirates Of The CARIBBEAN

Its a magestic song, wich express something that no every symphonic song can express, what I'm trying to say is that the song express that pure majesticness that people is looking on a song without being too complex.

Its such an awesome and the best energy releaser... Kind of gets you into such a real and different world... Mainly helps you to concentrate... You have to experience it to know it. Check it out

The song gives you the feeling of being very powerful as if we were the emperor of a huge dynasty... I love the fast paced beats in the song... I get a feeling of strength when I hear this song.

6 Dragon Rider

All of their songs are amazing, but "Dragon Rider" is particularly unique, with its quicker tempo, uplifting melody, and overall power. It almost immediately jumps to the main theme instead of beginning with a gradual buildup as most of the other songs do. It gives a sensation of total euphoria throughout. The only negative is the short duration of this phenomenal song.

The best of the whole lot! It has so much power, passion, strength, and a great beat. Not that "Heart of Courage isn't good, it's excellent! But "Dragon Rider" will always top my list!

As I listen to this song I see myself leading my small but highly skilled Army into battle. I am a shapeshifter, but have not yet had the time to master my powers. We begin the battle, pushing forward as our skill takes the enemy by surprise, and it temporarily looks good. However, they soon recover, and my best friend is trapped in their ring. Reaching inside myself, I become a dragon, flying over them, rescuing my brother in battle. We continue fighting, eventually pushing to a victory. It's a great song.

Really great

Uplifting, motivating, magnificent, holy!
Truly a masterpiece!

Purity

This song will lift you even in your darkest hours! Amazing arrangement!

It's like John Williams meets Hans Zimmer, and the two of them spending countless hours together. Just beautiful.

8 Strength of a Thousand Men

An dynamic song with an awesome beat

If you're looking for the definition of epic, this is what you should be listening to! Awesome melody and tremendous rhythm.

READ: This song is by far one of the most amazing songs! This will make you push that last rep in, that last mile, or that last problem on your math test. I am telling you, this the reason why I love Epic Music! This song right here, is your ticket to epic completion!

This is the best and most epic song I've ever heard

9 Winterspell

Best, no question. Archangel, do you even lift? This song really rocks, especially at the end of a workout.

What a epic song!

This song makes me feel so inspired. I feel like it's generally pretty overshadowed, with black heart taking so much of this albums spotlight, and it makes me really happy to see this amazing song so high on the list.

Every time I listen to it I feel as if I am standing in a very beautiful, ice covered landscape untouched by the human intervention. Really great song. Please vote for it.

10 For the Win

Oh goodness. Did I just defeat darkness? Save the world? Read the best book in the universe? See the best movie in the universe? Win an epic sword fight against the enemy of the free-people?

I didn't? Well it sure felt like it. This song is amazing. It's made up of courage, strength, the overcoming of struggle, hope, leadership, majesty, and the power of good. Rethink it all, because this song, is your fantasy dream.

This sound is really for the win. Great built for an ultimate finish battle. Amazing song.

Really is the best. go for the win it sound like heart of courage

This song is epic! It makes me feel awesome, whatever I don't know how to put it. Just too epic.

The Contenders

11 Nero

This song is making its appearance everywhere lately and the music has a haunting and light-hearted quality to it. I've heard it in the trailers of Anna Karenina and Joss Whedon's film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. There is a certain magic to it that you just can't deny! It is a perfect blend of epic triumph and refreshing innocence.

One of the best they have ever made! The simple piano piece introduces you to this masterpiece and the playful way it builds up and connects to the main melody is just breathtaking. I'm always in awe when I'm listening to this cream of the crop.

It's the perfect soundtrack for a special event the way it goes in crescendo. Nice and beautiful.

I instantly fell in love with this piece as soon as I heard it!

12 El Dorado

Great song from beginning to end. Has that South American feel to it, that builds into an epically paced blockbuster near the end.

It's just so awesome listening from two thirds of the way in. It's like you've just discovered a massive secret to the universe, somewhere on the planet from the movie Avatar.

Great mix of different styles. The songs builds up greatly, with one of the most epic melodies at the climax. Never gets repetitive or boring, and succeeds in entertaining you throughout the whole experience.

Definitely agree that it has a South American feel to it (at least in my opinion). If I were about to embark on an epic treasure hunt or anything similar, this is what I would want playing in the background.

13 Freedom Fighters

Slow but unbelievably majestic. Buildup is super steady and the climax is prime. The loudest point reminds me of that last push in a competition that propels a team to victory. All around great song

Such a slow and magnificent buildup. Heard it more than 700 times and still loving it. Gives me goosebumps every single time.

This single best song I ever heard.

I play this song when I am playing strategy games. - Tornadocracy

14 Norwegian Pirate

Tension, drama, momentum and joy. Epic dynamic piece.

Will conquer the sea alone without a pirate

Amazing mystery, wonder, and immense power in one song that I argue easily rivals Protectors of the Earth and Heart of Courage.

Fast paced and very good at creating an epic, sweeping visualization.

Best song ever

Amazing stuff.

The longest and the most epic!

A Masterpiece

16 Star Sky

That beautiful female voice alone makes "Star Sky" top 5. The piece has a strong beat, powerful melody, and is very emotional.

How this one isn't number 1 or at least top 3 is beyond me. The build up, The powerful female voice, the amazing melody, the climax, its all perfect. I am actually going to say it: Star Sky belongs in the all time music top 100.

Enchanting, powerful, and thought provoking.

Love this song, gotta be in the top 3 best ever from TSFH. Personally I prefer the instrumental version over the vocal one, but either one is a powerfully emotional love song. The climax is what does it for me, the culmination of contained passion exploding out in such a dramatic way stirred me to the very soul.

17 Final Frontier

This song is awesome, calm at the beginning to become very epic, it reminds me the greatness of the space and its void.

This should've been in the Interstellar soundtrack, not just the trailer lol

By far one of the best songs. Should be top 5

18 Enchantress

Such a beautiful song that incorporates such majestic melodies and harmonies in a really unique tone. It really should be higher! Close your eyes and let the song take you through an adventure into many worlds.

Listening to this makes me enter a magical imagination of places

What this song is 48?

Really descriptive, beautiful masterpiece of music

19 Magika

This should easily be top 3.

The best score

Please listen this.

So powerful.. So positive. Every time I heard this song, I smile, instanly brave.. And I feel not alone..
Best epic song ever!

20 Skyworld

Not only is this song ' epic, it's one of the best motivational pieces TSFH has released. That's saying a lot considering some of the other awesome songs that have topped this list. It simply moves me in so many good ways.

Just plug this song, mute the volume of the final fantasy 14 battle with dragon video, and see the song give meaning to the video

This song builds up so much tension, at the last 30 seconds I was in the battlefield itself. The song overall is just so close to perfect. This should be in the top 3 in my opinion.

The bass line half way through makes a flood of shivers charge down my spine. A truly amazing piece of music.

21 Merchant Prince

How isn't this in the top five? It's so unique, epic and beautiful. How come nobody knows about this? It's driving me insane, so many people know dozens of crappy teenage songs but nobody actually knows about this beautiful song and appreciates it! I'm literally ashamed of living with these people without the sense of 'real treasure'. The people who have read Little Prince, the Alchemist and stuff will know what 'real treasure' is. And humanity has never been so apart of it as they're now.

I love Merchant Prince. It's a top notch song, one of My personal top tens. - NymeriaWaters

This song really needs to be higher. It's beautiful melody is so uplifting and emotional. Such amazing use of the choir, such amazing use of soundwaves period.

This song is amazing, definitely a song that needs more appreciation from fans of TSFH

22 Evergreen

I love the time signature, how well it dances. - NymeriaWaters

23 Black Blade

Love the ending! Very fitting piece of art for a professional trailer. I have used it in my videos before, great piece of music, everyone should listen throughout the whole thing

Just the one. Simply a masterpiece in the all epic music world. I think the song is the more intense of the two steps from hell discography. The rising and the moment that the song explode is just... unbelievable. I have shivers each time I listen to it T. T

An amazing piece of music, gets your blood pumping and your heart pounding. I am surprised this piece is not further up the list. Also works very well in the Mass Effect 3 Cinematic trailer, well worth a view!

Why 11,
This must be at least in the top 5,
Just try listen this song yourself,
Also, try watch mass effect 3 cinematic trailer,

24 Remember Me
25 Invincible

By far my most favorite TSFH song, when listening to this I perform 10% better in EVERYTHING.

This is too far down for such an epic song. Should be in the top 10

The most epic song. When I hear it, I imagine myself fighting thousands of enemies in fantasy world. Drums are the best in this song.

This song makes me feel invincible

26 Blizzard

Just fits very well its name, getting more and more powerful.
A very deep track.

You get "chilled" when you listen to this track. Best name for the song and best song for the name.

The song begins with a soft snow flurry and builds into the most intense blizzard imaginable. This is an absolute masterpiece and will forever be my favorite TSFH song. So sad to see it this low on the list.

How is it this low. My by far favorite song. Vote Up!

27 United We Stand, Divided We Fall

This song is intense. While other songs have a build up to the intense portion of the song and then fall off toward the end, this song gets you going from the 1-second mark. For example, Heart of Courage has a slow build up to an elating, yet simultaneously mono-paced, mid section before dying like a dog toward the end. When comparing these two - as well as comparing many others - United We Stand, Divided We Fall will almost always win because of its consistent intensity and ability to evoke a physical reaction within me like I'm getting ready to fight.

I've had trouble waking up to my alarm in the past, so I replaced it with this. Problem solved. It's hard to sleep when your whole body is convinced that the final chaotic battle for the fate of the cosmos is happening a few inches away on your nightstand, gilded with the crescendos of wailing angels. This needs to be number two behind To Glory.

The unrelenting intensity of this song is simply unparalleled. Tormented solos, heroic buildups, and defiant/relentless stretches of steady pacing all have their place in the genre of epic music, but this is not the song for them. This is the song for action.

This song has the best vocals and is the most consistent song that pleases me every time I hear it

28 Master of Shadows

What the hell has everyone's sense of music gone nutss this deserves place in top 5
If you don't vote for it I will find you and I will kill you and then I will haunt your ghost

Such a fantastic piece! :)))

29 Across the Blood Water

Great!

This song is so good, severely underrated. - NymeriaWaters

30 Path to Earth
31 Hypnotica
32 Flight of the Silverbird

How on Earth is this not in the top 5? The brass at the end is so powerful, and it builds up so well, from a beautiful classical style piece and then changing genres to involve more brass and electric bass.

This song just uplifts you and gives you determination, while calming you with a beautiful melody!

I absolutely believe this is the best TSFH song of all time.

Flight of the Silverbird is a rare accomplishment in epic music. It's impressive overarching leitmotif combined with an ingenious use of instruments thought primitive in earlier times come together for an orchestral experience unlike any other song released to date. This song builds fantastically and lives, breathes, and evolves throughout this journey most people would call just a song. It avoids the pitfalls that other songs have fallen into time and time again. It is long enough to feel like an adventure, unlike Heart of Courage, and has a memorable leitmotif (cough, cough, Heart of Courage). The choruses (of which there are multiple, epic ones, unlike certain unnamed parties that start with an 'H' and end with a 'Courage') actually build, and you can tell that more instruments are being added in. I know I'm picking on Heart of Courage a little bit, but seriously? Number 1? If you agree with me, consider shooting me a comment. If you disagree with me, definitely shoot me a comment.

33 Strength of an Empire

By far my favorite, surprised it ranks so low!

34 Love & Loss

Really? This was the first song I'd heard by them and it has always been my favorite.

Heart-pounding. Two Steps at its best.

35 Sons of War

Very underrated song - could potentially beat heart of courage, it depends on the person's taste.

Underrated, it could beat Protectors of the Earth in some ways. Really depends on your tastes.

Can't believe that tis song is in the bottom

This should also be top 10 in my opinion, one of the best from the Invicible album.

36 Starvation

Incredibly complete and brilliantly orchestrated song the rhythmic motif in string arpeggios is complexly syncopated and suspenseful, and the sliding dissonances build drama raw, dark chant punctuates the explosive brass and percussion above it runs the haunting choral melody of the Bulgarian folksong Ayshenko, pilya shareno these intense passages alternate with those in brass, namely a soaring refrain and swashbuckling bridge in the finale, ALL of these elements are integrated into a scintillating climax the dying echoes of drums deftly complete the experience.

With its abundance of vivid motifs and masterful orchestration, Starvation is a MASSIVE snub at 40.

One of the best songs out there.

"Starvation” is an incredibly complete and brilliantly orchestrated song. The rhythmic motif in string arpeggios is complexly syncopated and suspenseful, and the sliding dissonances build drama. Raw, dark chant punctuates the explosive brass and percussion; above it runs the haunting choral melody of the Bulgarian folksong “Ayshenko, pilya shareno”. These intense passages alternate with those in brass, namely a soaring refrain and swashbuckling bridge in the finale. Finally ALL of these elements are integrated into a scintillating climax; the dying echoes of drums deftly complete the experience. With its abundance of vivid motifs and masterful orchestration, “Starvation” is a MASSIVE snub at 40.

37 Empire of Angels

Best song I have ever heard! Epic

Empire of Angels ought to be #1! It is an injustice! It is far superior to Heart of Courage (unpopular opinion, I know)! The melody is incredibly beautiful and it builds spectacularly! It may be repetitive, but that is one of the things I like about it. It doesn't stray from it's incredible melody while not failing to increase in energy.

The catchy pairing of melody and beat suffers from repetition, but it benefits from glorious orchestration and the rousing syncopation of the finale; it is a memorable piece (albeit an ear-worm).

'seriously, THIS LOW? ' should be at least top 5

38 High C's

This song has such an amazing opening, I honestly love it. - NymeriaWaters

39 Immortal Immortal Immortal is a black metal band from Bergen, Norway, founded in 1990 by frontman and guitarist Abbath Doom Occulta and former guitarist Demonaz Doom Occulta.

Immortal is a great song, but don't confuse it with "The Immortals" (which, by the way, is another epic song)

This is amazing. One of the best in my opinion

...How on earth is Immortal #50?! There's no way! This is for sure in the top #5 Two Steps From Hell songs ever! So epic - JasonWolf727

This song is epic, equal to heart of courage

40 Undying Love

Epic and romantic. Tragic and vast. It's my favorite song by Two Steps from Hell. It conveys their expansive feeling of awe and heart wrenching movement of music.

This is probably the greatest Two Steps song ever.

Sometimes I wish their songs were longer so I could keep listening instead of pressing repeat.

ONE OF THE BEST.

41 After the Fall

Seriously, THIS LOW? Top 5 at least?

THIS and Blackheart is the two most sad and beautiful songs of TSFH.

Up up up

One of TSFH's best songs ever!
Really surprised it didn't even make top 50!
You guys have no idea what you're missing on here!

42 Sun & Moon

Yeah the atmosphere is very special indeed!

This has a really special feeling.

43 False King

This song is easily one of their best! The first song that bought me closer to this band!

This song is better than all of the ones listed! It deserves to be much higher on the list! Definitely should be in the Top 5!

Best of Two Steps from Hell without a doubt

Thirty eighth? Are you kidding me? Possibly one of their best songs.

44 Jump

Jump is just awesome! Definitely not the best song. (Archangels or Aura no questions) but this needs to get higher up on this litle unfinished list.

Really good war song. Try playing dodgeball playing Blackheart in your head.

Marvelous combination of string instruments and electric guitar.

One of the new era songs (Area 51... ) for the use of electric guitar.

46 Never Back Down

By far my favorite song. It has an epic combination of choir and symphony, bringing it all together at the end for an extremely dramatic finish. Oh and also if you know the words to the song it's even better!

The beat was amazing! love it

47 Magic of Love

Whoa! What two steps music have I been listening to forever? This song is so good. - NymeriaWaters

This song is amazing! Its so uplifting, I'm suprised it isn't in the top 10

Really mind-altering and peaceful. REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF LORD OF THE RINGS!

48 Compass

Such a beautiful, melancholic song that makes my heart cry each time I hear it

This reminds me of all the things that are good in life. It's a beautiful track, both the vocal and the instrumental.

Amazing song, giving hope. I love all TSfH music, but this one has trapped my heart.

Perfection. That's it :D
Now Bergersen finally "sing" his own native language. Very motivational lyrics in my opinion, overall good orchestral impression

49 Cannon in D Minor

Awesome rendition of cannon in d minor

I love how energetic it is

BattleCry was amazing, and Cannon in D represents the best the album has to offer. It's wonderfully energetic and even the name is clever!

I feel like as a general rule, Battle Cry's non Victory song go underrated. This may not be the best, but it is definitely fantastic. - NymeriaWaters
