Most Ghostly Sounding Metal Songs

Some metal songs (or parts of them) sound ghostly due to music, specific sounds or vocals.

The Top Ten

1 The Oath - Mercyful Fate
2 The Spider's Lullabye - King Diamond
3 More Than Pain - King Diamond
4 Sacred Mind - Blind Guardian

I always thought of "The Throne" as being like a raging fire. And this is the smoke and ruin afterwards. Spirits of the dead. Really ghostly. - IronSabbathPriest

Hansi vocals during the first 2 minutes sound very ghostly.
Three metal singers often use something like voice acting in their songs - King Diamond, Hansi K├╝rsch and Jon Oliva. - Metal_Treasure

5 Jesus, Mary & the Holy Ghost - Dio
6 Death is Just a Feeling - Avantasia

Vocals are mostly from Jon Oliva (Savatage, TSO). This is his voice on the song sample, later Tobias Sammet joins. - Metal_Treasure

7 Altair 4 - Blind Guardian

This is an almost forgotten song from 1990 but man, the intro is so ghostly. - Metal_Treasure

8 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
9 The Reaper - Grave Digger
10 Spirit Horse of the Cherokee - Manowar

The Contenders

11 Disturbing the Priest - Black Sabbath

Vocals are from Ian Gillan, originally singer for Deep Purple. - Metal_Treasure

12 Phone Call - King Diamond

This is the most ghostly sounding piece but it's not exactly a song - that's why it's not higher on the list (honorable mention only). - Metal_Treasure

13 The Family Ghost - King Diamond

It has the word 'Ghost' in the title but it doesn't sound very ghostly compared to the other songs by King Diamond. - Metal_Treasure

14 Bewitched - Candlemass
