Top 10 Metal Instrumentals of the 2010s
The Top Ten Metal Instrumentals of the 2010s
2010. A bonus track.
This is an instrumental version of their critically acclaimed song Wheel of Time. Actually it's the instrumental track to the song, just without vox. It's nearly 9 minutes long (08:55).
This instrumental piece is a celebration of epicness, perfectionism and attention to detail in the art of music composition. When the instrumental tracks to your songs sound like impressive finished pieces, you know you are great. And the Orchestral Version was only a bonus track. - Metal_Treasure
Nearly 4 minutes of heavy, technical and jaw-dropping playing. That's not easy listening though.
Blotted Science are the most brutally technical metal band in existence headed by guitarist Ron Jarzombek, the godfather of technical metal. So technical it hurts.
Blotted Science play only instrumentals and their stuff is heavy, complex, technical and brutal. Their instrumentals sound like technical death metal, just without vocals. - Metal_Treasure
About 6 minutes of impressive Dream Theater music. What else to expect from them? - Metal_Treasure
Flamenco metal is the most interesting experiment in metal after 2000 and it was invented by this band - Flametal.
Flamenco guitars - Ben Woods. - Metal_Treasure
Gus G. is one of the best young neoclassical guitarists. Give him a chance.
He is the mastermind behind metal band Firewind but he releases solo albums as well. - Metal_Treasure
2018 was great for metal. This amazing instrumental is with regular length - 4:24. - Metal_Treasure
Truly jaw-dropping guitar playing by a young guitarist (he played awesome leads for Obscura and Necrophagist).
Find on YT: Christian Muenzner - The Tell Tale Heart (Demonstration).
It's a Guitar playthrough video to "The Tell-Tale Heart" from his 2011 solo album Timewarp.
He released his mindblowing solo album in the same year he released a mindblowing album with Obscura - Omnivium. - Metal_Treasure
2018 (I think it's awesome) - Metal_Treasure
A 3.33 minute piece by Kiko and Dave Mustaine. - Metal_Treasure
Another full-length instrumental by Gus G. (4:14 minutes long) - Metal_Treasure
A soft atmospheric piece of 2012 (4:08 min long) - Metal_Treasure
2011. An excellent Cacophony cover - Cacophony was the band of the virtuoso guitarists Jason Becker and Marty Friedman.
It isn't higher only because it's a cover. But this piece is nearly 5 minutes of sweep picking and other impressive stuff.
Guitars: Christian Muenzner and Steffen Kummerer (perfect coordination and synchronization between 2 guitarists) - Metal_Treasure
This "Kurzes Epos" (Short Epic) is 13:02 minutes long 😉 - Metal_Treasure
I love it mainly for the fretless bass (by Dominic "Forest" Lapointe). Fretless bass is literally crying - those crying "muwahh" and "bwoww" sounds. - Metal_Treasure
A very soft instrumental where bass is the leading instrument (song was written by the bassist - Linus Klausenitzer) - Metal_Treasure
Over 5 minutes prog/tech instrumental metal - Metal_Treasure
Lead singer Tim Charles played both the piano and violin - Metal_Treasure
From their 2011 EP The Animation Of Entomology - Metal_Treasure
A song of 2014 - Metal_Treasure
AAL is described as progressive metal, although this tune in question isn’t quite metal. It’s still outstanding.
