Top 10 German Power Metal Songs


The Top Ten

1 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

I didn't add Blind Guardian's symphonic metal masterpieces (Wheel Of Time, Sacred Worlds) because it's a different subgenre - close to power metal but different. 'And Then There Was Silence' has some symphonic arrangements but for me it's epic progressive power metal. - Metal_Treasure

Even though the song is fourteen minutes long, it's still probably the best Blind Guardian song. - Merilille

2 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween

Helloween's magnum opus. - Metal_Treasure

3 Rebellion in Dreamland - Gamma Ray


4 New Age Messiah - Edguy
5 Mirror, Mirror - Blind Guardian

@zxm - Blind Guardian are the best in the business. - Metal_Treasure

I started to listening some blind guardian songs.and they are great! - zxm

6 The Scarecrow - Avantasia
7 Nightfall - Blind Guardian

This song is so beautiful. - Metal_Treasure

8 Land of the Free - Gamma Ray
9 Demons and Angels - Primal Fear
10 Valhalla - Blind Guardian

A song with one of the best metal choruses ever written ("Valhalla, deliverance..."), a quite heavy and memorable riff, and a duet of Hansi and Kai. - Metal_Treasure

A song originally released in 1989. I am so happy they re-recorded this song circa 2011 for the album Memories of a Time to Come. Overall, it sounds much better and even Kai Hansen vocals are better on the new version. Wow, 22 years later they made a better version.
On the song sample is the new version. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Otherland - Blind Guardian
12 Last Before the Storm - Gamma Ray

A very pleasant song, catchy chorus. Vocals - Ralf Scheepers. - Metal_Treasure

13 Riding the Eagle - Primal Fear

That solo, that drummer... - Metal_Treasure

14 Curse of Feanor - Blind Guardian
15 Impaler - Paragon
16 The Seven Angels - Avantasia
17 Time Stands Still - Blind Guardian
18 Six Times Dead (16.6) - Primal Fear

One of the catchiest choruses on this list and a cool drum intro. - Metal_Treasure

The correct item title is: Six Times Dead (16.6) - Primal Fear.
I have no idea why the song title vanished... The song sample is correct though - it's really the song Six Times Dead (16.6) by Primal Fear. - Metal_Treasure

19 I Want Out - Helloween
20 Vain Glory Opera - Edguy

Hansi Kursch is a guest musician and sings several lines after the guitar solo. I love Sammet and Kursch individually but when can hear their voices in one song - it's what many people call eargasm. - Metal_Treasure

21 Gardens of the Sinner - Gamma Ray
22 Dethrone Tyranny - Gamma Ray
23 Sanctified with Dynamite - Powerwolf
24 Halloween - Helloween
25 Serpents in Paradise - Avantasia
26 Man on a Mission - Gamma Ray
27 Rebellion - Grave Digger
28 Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy
29 Out of Control - Edguy

Tobias Sammet and Hansi Kursch singing together - can't get any better! Hansi is a guest musician and sings this part of the chorus: "My life is a chamber of tears, fear and hate", and the song's climax:
"Listen up my friend you just cry for a hand
but you only pretend that you're bad. Now! " - Metal_Treasure

30 Eagle Fly Free - Helloween
31 Sacrifice - Edguy
32 Mysteria - Edguy

One of the best and longest intro screams I know. - Metal_Treasure

33 Heavy Metal Universe - Gamma Ray
34 Are You Metal? - Helloween
35 Defenders of the Crown - Edguy
36 Out in the Fields - Powerwolf

The best Gary Moore & Phil Lynott cover. - Metal_Treasure
