Top Ten Hardest Metal Songs to Sing


The Top Ten

1 Painkiller - Judas Priest

Easy at first for a good singer, but to keep up with the song until the end note is almost impossible

2 Abigail - King Diamond

It's not hard if you have a vocal range of 4+ octaves and mad falsetto. But it's hard to find people with such skills! - Metal_Treasure

3 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

Imagine having to sing this plus the song is 14 minutes long that would be very hard - christangrant

And they played this song even live and did it great! The lyrics are like 5 miles long... - Metal_Treasure

High notes, varied lyrics, and not so much time to breathe plus 14 min long

4 Child in Time - Deep Purple

That part with the high range is very hard to do. Ian Gillan voice is amazing. - Userguy44

5 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth
6 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards
7 The Oath - Mercyful Fate
8 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween
9 March of Time - Helloween
10 Queen of the Reich - Queensryche

The Contenders

11 Highlander - Lost Horizon

Sick screams and transitions - Metal_Treasure

12 Metal Meltdown - Judas Priest
13 Cathedral Spires - Judas Priest Cathedral Spires - Judas Priest

(Tim 'Ripper' Owens) - Metal_Treasure

14 Octavarium - Dream Theater
15 Sacrifice - Edguy

5:05-6:05 is the hardest part. - Metal_Treasure

16 Burn - Deep Purple

The sustain on the word "burn" in the chorus is relatively hard - you can hear it on the song sample. I've heard cover versions of this song and only Jorn Lande did it properly. - Metal_Treasure

17 Wages of Sin - Winter's Bane

Pretty hard stuff by Tim 'Ripper' Owens. In this song he sometimes reminds of Halford and King Diamond. - Metal_Treasure

18 Golden Dawn - Edguy

The hardest part is from 5:30-end, where Tobias Sammet vocals are pure bliss. - Metal_Treasure
