Top 10 Metal Instrumentals of the 80s


The Top Ten

1 Orion - Metallica

I know that after a while this will be at #1. I wouldn't mind because this is a great instrumental. But I believe that guitar work on Black Star by Yngwie and Arc-Lite by Coroner is more impressive. Check them out. - Metal_Treasure

Best Instrumental of all time.

2 Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen
3 Arc-Lite - Coroner

I had to vote for this instrumental because I just have fallen in love with it after hearing. Coroner is a very talented band! I also have to thank you, Metal_Treasure, for leaving your comment about Arc-Lite on the Best Coroner Songs page-I had heard of the group but didn't know anything about them and listened to Arc-Lite a few days ago and have been listening to some of their other songs since and have really enjoyed! I'm somewhat new to the metal genre so I don't know a whole lot of metal bands yet (my list has been rapidly growing though due to looking for new songs to listening to every day:) and this website has been very helpful to me to find new bands and songs to listen to. I think I also have you to thank for learning about the band Annihilator (I think you had posted something about them on a list I was reading), which is one of my current favorite bands now! So thank you so much, Metal_Treasure! - Element119

Thank you very much for the good words, Element119. I highly appreciate it.
