The Top Ten
1984(George Owell) like sate light in space - Toucan
"There is war at hand, the system's failing, engine's running"
"The source of my power, T-energy, I'm in control".
This is one of the greatest pieces of music I know. It's epic, progressive and very impressive - symphonic arrangement, supreme vocals, chorus, riffs, etc. It’s over 9 minutes long and it’s ready to become a movie soundtrack as it is. - Metal_Treasure
Feels like an asimov novel - Toucan
"We all drown in the fifth dimension".
All Blind Guardian albums (10 as of 2015) are based on science fiction and fantasy because their singer and lyricist loves such books. So practically their entire discography goes but I picked 'The Ninth Wave' because it's from their newest album 'Beyond The Red Mirror' (2015). It’s a concept album, described by Hansi Kürsch himself as "A story between science fiction and fantasy. [...] The two worlds described have changed dramatically for the worse since then. While there used to be several passages between the worlds, there is only one gate left now: The Red Mirror. It has to be found at any cost.” - Metal_Treasure
It's the final count down tadadada tadatatata... - Toucan
This riff is amazing, so catchy. - Metal_Treasure
Are you caught in time? - Toucan
My favorite of the songs on the list yet I don't regard it as sci-fi influenced as all more spiritual influenced I believe - Billyv
As well as his albums Ziggy Stardust and Diamond Dogs. - PetSounds
Excellent tune, beautiful lyrics, cool vox and solo.
"I stole a ride on a passing star
Not knowing where I was going
All control is in the hands of those who know
Will they help us grow
To one day be starriders? " - Metal_Treasure
Oh what looked like zero gravity
Is just a gelatinous mass
We're riding out, pass by the moon
Bird's eye view on the universe
We're all about breaking the rules
"Freeze! " goes the Space Police - Metal_Treasure
Imagine your in a space ship,going into hyper space - Toucan
