Best Avantasia Songs

The Top Ten
1 The Scarecrow

It's rare for a song to have a moment that gives you chills. It's even rarer for a song to have four or five of those moments. Without a doubt my favorite Avantasia song, and one of my favorite songs in general.

One of the best songs I've heard in my life. People say there is no such thing as a perfect song. Play them this and they will be proven wrong. The guitars, the drums, the Jorn, the vocals, the lyrics, the Jorn, the epicness, the Jorn!

My favorite song, not only because of Jorn, but because of the song itself. It has quality, power, and is definitely one of the best songs that came out from Tobias Sammet. Keep on rocking, we want more!

2 The Seven Angels

Yes, Jesus Christ, what a song it is. If this genre was at all popular with the general public, this song would be equivalent to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. I listen to it a few times every day and never get sick of it. The part after like 8-9 minutes that starts with "I have been alone 'til a madman came along" just gives me goosebumps every time. Kudos, Mr. Sammet.

This song is without doubt the best Avantasia song and up there with the best Symphonic Power Metal songs of all time. It has everything: a strong and excellent Power Metal chorus, a badass solo, a Meatloaf-like piano part, and an outro that genuinely makes me cry tears of joy. I seriously can't live without this song.

3 Farewell

Old favorite. It introduced me to Sharon and the whole symphonic side, where I found Nightwish and other similar bands.

The one that introduced me to them.

Awesome melody. Breathtaking duet.

4 Death is Just a Feeling

What an incredible song! The chorus is pure awesomeness and the strange parts are perfect! Jon Oliva's interpretation is excellent. He seems to be really insane and hurt.

Soaring, theatrical, haunting, and even a little mournful. Just about the most perfect symphonic power metal song you could ask for.

Jon Oliva rocks, hands down! And Tobi is amazing, like always.

5 Dying for an Angel

I love this song! Awesome lyrics and music. Should easily be in the top 5 of this list. Please listen to it and decide for yourself.

It's awesome! This music, these lyrics.

6 Let the Storm Descend Upon You

It's simply the most epic song I've ever heard. Someone has to push the Ghostlights songs because they are simply on top of most Avantasia songs.

Just a fantastic piece of art. Stunning intro, powerful chorus, and fantastic singers.

This is one of the best songs. Tobi, please more of this.

7 The Raven Child

One of the best songs I've ever heard. The vocals are incredible. I haven't heard a duo mix as well as Hansi Kürsch and Jorn Lande in my life. The music is amazing. It has soft and slow parts and hard and fast parts. The singing completely fits with the music.

The lyrics are also so incredible that they actually force you to read them. If you resist reading the lyrics, you have my respect. All out, an incredible song: great music, awesome singing, and amazing music. 9/10 from me, making it my favorite song by Avantasia.

8 The Wicked Symphony

Avantasia has many great songs, but this one is just perfect in every aspect. Amazing and powerful chorus, nice contrast between major and minor parts, the highs and lows, and perfectly timed transitions.

I have been a power metal and Avantasia fan for years, and I can say that this is a true masterpiece, along with The Seven Angels and The Scarecrow.

Perfect! The story behind this song, a story of struggle, the amazing vocal stand-off, the epic intro, the fantastic and ear-catching melody, and the whole song itself - just perfect.

9 The Toy Master

It features Alice Cooper. What can be better! Alice is the godfather of shock rock and metal!

10 The Final Sacrifice

It's just awesome. Since it starts, it's a song with full power in its lyrics and music. I recommend it to everyone who wants to start listening to this amazing group.

The Contenders
11 Avantasia

Awesome chorus. Time telling me to say farewell but I knew that I would fight hell and I know we will... Go for another time you can see for another time, we'll be free for no more farewell.

12 The Tower

How could this be #30? This is one of the best songs of all time. It's perfect.

My list would be:
1. The Tower
2. Reach Out for the Light
3. Farewell
4. Chalice of Agony
5. Breaking Away

A complete masterpiece.

Easily the best. Great harmonies, riffs, and an epic tone. Should be much higher.

Great lyrics! Great music! What greatness!

13 Sign of the Cross

Greatest epic act. One of the best choruses in hard rock metal history, in the style of Dio, Rainbow, and Sabbath days!

This chorus, please. It's a perfect hymn.

14 Cry Just a Little
15 Unchain the Light
16 Alchemy
17 Another Angel Down

Fantastic song! Intro is awesome! Riffs are standard, but anyway, the song is perfect!

The lyrics are awesome, probably the most important moment in the Wicked Trilogy (you know, guy sells his soul).

18 Mystery of a Blood Red Rose

It was originally supposed to have Meat Loaf on vocals, but he backed out due to a contract dispute with the label.

Sounds a bit like Meat Loaf. Very melodic song.

19 Master of the Pendulum
20 Reach Out for the Light

One of the best songs of all time. I could have voted for The Tower, but this one doesn't have any comments, so fine.

21 Serpents in Paradise
22 Runaway Train

Such a masterpiece. Legendary.

23 Promised Land

Avantasia has a stupid amount of brilliant songs. It's impossible to choose the best, but I feel this one is underrated.

Hey hey hey, why is this one not at the top, guys?

24 Lost in Space
