Top 10 Blind Guardian Songs that are the Best of Each Albumchristangrant
The Top Ten
I would probably choose the same songs from each album. It's difficult with the two ballads - The Bard's Song and Lord of the Rings. On the one hand, they are great and The Bard's Song became their most popular song and it deserves to be on the list. On the other, these 2 albums have very good metal songs. I would suggest just to include more songs from these 2 albums (and probably from all albums because there are serious contenders). - Metal_Treasure
Contender: Sacred Worlds. - Metal_Treasure
Majesty is my favorite speed metal song of all time.
The 2nd best song on this album is Guardian Of The Blind (another very fast, heavy and aggressive song). The band was named after this song. - Metal_Treasure
Contenders: Nightfall, Thorn, Into the Storm, The Curse of Feanor. - Metal_Treasure
Contenders: Journey Through The Dark, Theatre Of Pain, Time What is Time. - Metal_Treasure
This song makes Mirror Mirror and And Then There Was Silence sounds like a generic poppy song
Contenders: The Ninth Wave, The Holy Grail, Grand Parade. - Metal_Treasure
I'm going with this song
Sometimes I find myself liking this song more than Valhalla from the same album. Both songs are great -
Banish from Sanctuary is much faster (speed metal) while Valhalla is closer to power metal (heavier power metal though - riff is pretty brutal for power metal). Banish from Sanctuary also has one of their best guitar solos. - Metal_Treasure
Contender: Banish From Sanctuary - Metal_Treasure
One of the fastest songs in their discography (as of 2017) and it's awesome. The Bard's Song is awesome, too, but it's a ballad and not a true metal song. - Metal_Treasure
I have always had a soft spot for this song - it's so emotional and dark yet beautiful. Hansi vocals are mindblowing on this one! Thorn is one of their most underrated songs. - Metal_Treasure
Contenders: Traveler in Time, The Last Candle. - Metal_Treasure
Great vocals, interesting complex drumming, crunchy proggy riff and beautiful inspirational lyrics. - Metal_Treasure
Contenders: Otherland, Skalds and Shadows, This Will Never End, Another Stranger Me. - Metal_Treasure
I like several songs on this album and it's difficult to choose but for me this is the most impressive song. The Throne is a great pick, too. - Metal_Treasure
One of the most unique songs I know - I can't even say what subgenre it is. To me it sounded like nothing else I had heard before and for this reason I needed to listen to it 5 times in order to fully understand its music idea. Great vocals and drumming. - Metal_Treasure
Contenders: Mordred's Song, A Past and Future Secret, I'm Alive. - Metal_Treasure
This is probably the most beautiful power metal song ever (not the best but the most beautiful). - Metal_Treasure
A very underrated song of 1992 but it might be the FIRST TRUE symphonic metal song ever (if Rainbow's Eyes Of The World is proto-symphonic metal, 1979).
If somebody can name other symphonic metal songs released between 1979 and 1992, I would be thankful. But for now Theatre of Pain is either the 2nd or the 1st song of this subgenre (depending on how you count Eyes Of The World by Rainbow - as the 1st song or as proto-song).
The version of Theatre of Pain that is a bonus track to this album is even more symphonic. - Metal_Treasure
A great Dio cover.
The Forgotten Tales is a compilation album with cover songs and different versions of Blind Guardian own songs - acoustic, orchestral or live versions.
Don't Talk to Strangers is a bonus track to the 2007 re-release. - Metal_Treasure
Tokyo Tales was their first live album. The vocal performance of this song is how a metal singer should sound live - Hansi sings this ballad with immense emotion, it's perfection start to finish. It's a good chance to hear how powerful his voice really is, even live. And he always sings like there's no tomorrow - passion is his voice is unmatched. Hands down. - Metal_Treasure
