Top 10 Most Progressive Blind Guardian Songs

Blind Guardian aren't a proggressive metal band but their songs are actually very progressive and often have several elements of progressive music.

Some of the elements of progressive music are:
longer and epic songs, more complex compositions, classical influence, more complex instrumentation (sometimes even symphonic orchestras), odd time signatures, time signature changes, superior vocals (Blind Guardian use multi-layered vocals), elements from other music genres (ex. folk, jazz elements), more complex conceptual ideas (songs are from concept albums), heightened lyrical content.

The default time signature in metal is 4/4 (i.e. march) so anything different from 4/4 is odd in metal.
