Top 10 European Metal Songs Used in Video Games or MoviesMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
Blind Guardian isn't the band that needs to be on top all the time. - Ananya
I know you would like to see a black metal band on top and I respect your preferences. I actually included Bathory very highly in this list while most of the metal fans don't include black metal.
And no, Blind Guardian aren't on top all the time. In fact, they are rarely on top even when they deserve it. This song is perfectly written and performed. Nevertheless, #1 on my personal remix is Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath... - Metal_Treasure
One of my most favorite Blind Guardian songs was written for the video game Sacred 2: Fallen Angel.
Singer and lyricist Hansi Kursch said that the band had no problems with making a song for a video game because the two guitarists Andre and Marcus are even bigger gamers than him. "There were no hesitations and discussions", Hansi added.
It's good when band members share similar interests.
When they made this song in 2010, the band members were in their 40s. Stay forever young, bards! - Metal_Treasure
This song was featured in 3 movies:
Dèmoni (1985) - an Italian action-horror film.
People Like Us (2012) - an American drama film
Hjälp! (Help! ) - a Swedish sitcom - Metal_Treasure
It was featured in the 2009 game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned - Metal_Treasure
It was used in the movie Heavy Metal (1981). And it was the only song by a metal band in a movie titled Heavy Metal, LOL. - Metal_Treasure
Used in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV - christangrant
It was used in an epic fight scene in Brutal Legend. Since this is an epic sounding song, it fit the scene well. - SoldierOfFortune
It was the main theme of the 2007 film In The Name Of The King (aka In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale).
The movie wasn't successful but the song is pure bliss. - Metal_Treasure
Used in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - christangrant
It was used in the Italian horror film Dèmoni (1985) - Metal_Treasure
Uwe Boll... it's a pity he did not get the recognition he deserves simply because he also made these uninspired video game adaptations. Has anybody seen "Attack on Darfur" or "Bailout" (aka "Assault on Wall Street")? This is what he should be judged on, as this is where he put his heart into. He only made movies like "Alone in the Dark", which were more likely to attract a wide audience, to be able to finance his serious movies, which were considered too touchy for major studios due to their subjects. - Martin_Canine
It was featured in Alone in the Dark (2005). - Metal_Treasure
Used in the video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories - christangrant
It was featured in the heavy metal edition of the Adult Swim game, Robot Unicorn Attack.
"Battlefield" is based on Song of Hildebrandt, an old German tale about a father and son who fight to death in a duel. - Metal_Treasure
It was used in the film River's Edge (1986) - Metal_Treasure
It was featured in Underworld: Evolution - Metal_Treasure
