Top 10 Metal Songs with Spoken and Whispered Lines / Words


The Top Ten

1 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth
2 Enter Sandman - Metallica
3 Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden
4 Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

Yes, I put this song at #8 and not higher as probably expected because the intro is awesome but I think this Maiden song is overrated (many better Maiden songs get less attention that this song). - Metal_Treasure

5 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
6 Damien - Iced Earth
7 Sacred Mind - Blind Guardian

The first 2 minutes are crazy, psychotic and amazing. - Metal_Treasure

8 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

At the very end Hansi whispers in German (the only time he used German in a song):
Es streben der Seele Gebete
den helfenden Engeln entgegen
entdeckend des Herzens Wehe
wenn Schmerzen es brennend verzehren

(I found this unofficial translation on the Internet):
Prayers of the soul are striving
towards the helping angels
detecting the heart's woe
when sorrow devours it ardently. - Metal_Treasure

9 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth
10 Gardens of the Sinner - Gamma Ray

The Contenders

11 New Age Messiah - Edguy
12 Mysteria - Edguy

"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the freakshow! " - Metal_Treasure

13 Melancholy (Holy Martyr) - Iced Earth
14 Sacrificial - Moonspell

Spoken lines and something like whispered growls. - Metal_Treasure

15 Open Face Surgery - Cryptopsy
16 Crown of Horns - Cryptopsy
17 White Omega - Moonspell

This is one of my most favorite lines from metal songs: "It's when life's so precious that every moment hurts". The singer/lyricist released 2 poetry books. - Metal_Treasure

18 White Skies - Moonspell
19 Oops! I Did It Again - Children of Bodom

Intro - "Because you're a loser. Perkele! "
Later in the middle of the song they talk about drinking (in Finnish). - Metal_Treasure

20 Everything Invaded - Moonspell
