The Top Ten
This Song Is Like Trying To Pick Between Call Of Duty And Battlefield They Are Both So Good - christangrant
Holy wars. Both are great though - ryanrimmelV 2 Comments
The Four Horsemen Is A Epic Tale While The Mechanix Is About Having Sex At A Gas Station - christangrant
Hard one but I like the Four Horsemen a little bit more. - Rambles
They're pretty much the same thing. Love them both. - IronSabbathPriest
I say The Four Horsemen. - Metal_TreasureV 2 Comments
The trooper. That's one of the staple heavy metal songs - ryanrimmelV 2 Comments
I have to go with Heaven And Hell.
Same moniker but pretty different styles, like 2 different bands. And very different singers, too. - Metal_TreasureV 2 Comments
Rob Halford is a vocal god but the voice of Hansi Kürsch is godlike, too. I wouldn't underestimate Hansi as a contender, not at all. Hansi's incredible passion in the voice and the way he sings this song give me chills. On the other hand, Rob Halford gives me chills, too. I'd tie it. - Metal_Treasure
I pick Beyond the realms of Death. - Rambles
Rob Halford and Hansi Kürsch are two of the greatest metal singers ever and their vocal performances are mindblowing here.
These two songs also have similar lyrical themes; both are epic, introspective and emotive.
The greatest ballads written by these two bands, also known for being friends - yeah, they may end up with a common performance onstage :)
Either way, it's gonna be cool. - Metal_Treasure
Gotta say the rime. It was the first classic Maiden song I ever heard - I got into them via The Final Frontier and because I was young when the album came out, I felt it would be impossible to have a song longer than When The Wild Wind Blows. Until I was pointed to the Rime. I have to say, it has the best lyrics in a song ever. - IronSabbathPriest
Both songs are really epic and apply that cool galloping style. - Metal_Treasure
Dante's Inferno. Iron Maiden is a better band but Dante's Inferno is a better song. - Metal_Treasure
Awesome, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple even performed these 2 legendary songs live in California, 1974 (same day, same venue - the famous California Jamming). The videos are available on youtube. - Metal_Treasure
Deep Purple nailed it even live!
War pigs easily. One of my favorite songs - ryanrimmel
This isn't even a face off the answer is obviously Raining Blood, Bleed isn't even in its league not to say that bleed isn't an awesome song. - germshep24
Raining Blood without a thought. Meshuggah is okay but nothing compared to Slayer. - Rambles
Walk is way better. I personally hate the album Roots. - RamblesV 1 Comment
The answer is obvious - Stargazer. - IronSabbathPriestV 2 Comments
Two of the greatest metal songs on Earth. I have to go with Painkiller.
Voice Of The Soul Is A Perfect Song It Doesn't Need Lyrics To Describe An Epic Tale - christangrant
These are my favorite metal instrumentals. - Metal_Treasure
I like more Nothing Else Matters. - Metal_Treasure
A Tout Le Monde is better in my opinion. - Rambles
Without a doubt - A Light In the Black. - Metal_Treasure
