Best Songs Between Blind Guardian and Annihilator


The Top Ten

1 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

Man, you put on one list some of my favorite metal songs of all time! But because I like them all, I can't choose and can't make a remix, LOL.
Annihilator and Blind Guardian are 2 of my most favorite metal bands. - Metal_Treasure

2 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

A 14 minute long and very intricate song with perfect build up. It has so many tracks that it alone required as much production time as the rest of the album (A Night at the Opera, 2002). This song has 3 versions: single, album and re-recorded version of 2012. I like the most the re-recorded version which they made for the compilation album Memories of a Time to Come (appears on the song sample). - Metal_Treasure

3 Schizos (Are Never Alone) - Annihilator Schizos (Are Never Alone) - Annihilator

When I wanna hear many great riffs in one song I listen to this - it's composed of fast yet melodic thrash riffs and almost has no lyrics (only 2-3 lines). The solo is also one of my favorite solos. Jeff Waters is just a riff and solo master. - Metal_Treasure

4 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian

As I said, I can't make a remix but I will make many comments to make up for it, LOL. - Metal_Treasure

5 Alison Hell - Annihilator

This has to be one of the most beautiful songs by a thrash band (for the riffs and solo). But the story is very sad and quite scary. - Metal_Treasure

6 The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind Guardian
7 Human Insecticide - Annihilator

Sometimes I think this is my favorite Annihilator song - fast and heavy. Schizos Are Never Alone is very favorite, too, but it's more like an instrumental. - Metal_Treasure

8 Nightfall - Blind Guardian

To me this is the most beautiful power metal song - probably not the best but the most beautiful. It also has this poetic line "Nightfall quietly crept in and changed us all". - Metal_Treasure

9 Mirror Mirror - Blind Guardian
10 W.T.Y.D. - Annihilator

The Contenders

11 Valhalla - Blind Guardian

It was either this or Bard's Song that was my first Blind Gaurdian song. I don't really remember. But it's probably my favorite song by them anyway. - cjWriter1997

Probably the best Blind Guardian chorus or at least the chorus fans love to sing at live shows the most: "Valhalla - Deliverance. Why've you ever forgotten me? " - Metal_Treasure

12 Fly - Blind Guardian

How a voice can be so divine... How Hansi gets a raw aggressive voice on other songs and then an amazingly smooth voice on songs like this one. - Metal_Treasure

13 Set the World on Fire - Annihilator
14 Distant Memories - Blind Guardian

This song is a bonus track to their 2015 album - I guess the reason must have been: the song is pretty soft. I absolutely love it though. - Metal_Treasure

15 Phantasmagoria - Annihilator

Can't get enough of these riffs. - Metal_Treasure

16 Imperiled Eyes - Annihilator
17 The Throne - Blind Guardian

Another epic and perfect song in my opinion, this time from their 2015 album. I didn't find even minor flaws in this song after 2 years of frequent listening. Awesome choruses and pre-choruses. My favorite section is from 5:30-6:30. - Metal_Treasure

18 Ultra Motion - Annihilator

Not long ago some metal fans exchanged opinions about snare drum in thrash and the need to use more fills, change the beat and so on.
Well, this song is a perfect example of how this should be done - in the middle of the song Randy Black plays a 1 minute long double bass drum solo. It isn't very difficult but it's very fast and changing the beat sounds awesome to me, especially where it is placed. - Metal_Treasure

19 Curse My Name - Blind Guardian
20 Valkyries - Blind Guardian
21 21 - Annihilator
22 Invite It - Annihilator
23 The Blackest Day - Annihilator
24 Thorn - Blind Guardian

One of my most favorite Blind Guardian songs - it's very intense and Hansi vocals are so emotional. - Metal_Treasure

25 Into the Storm - Blind Guardian

One of the best Blind Guardian songs for headbanging and one of their most intense songs. Great riff, chorus and vocals. - Metal_Treasure

26 Skalds and Shadows - Blind Guardian
27 Ride Into Obsession - Blind Guardian
28 Haunted - Annihilator

Play the song sample to hear this great duo Mike Manigini and Jeff Waters (drums and guitars, respectively).
What kind of weapons they used in the into/outro to get this sound? - Metal_Treasure

29 King of the Kill - Annihilator
30 Chasing the High - Annihilator
31 Bright Eyes - Blind Guardian
32 Tanelorn (Into the Void) - Blind Guardian
33 The Fun Palace - Annihilator
34 Sixes and Sevens - Annihilator
35 Prime-Time Killing - Annihilator
36 A Past and Future Secret - Blind Guardian
37 Majesty - Blind Guardian

One of the best speed metal songs, if not the best. This song was track #1 on their debut album, their drummer Thomas Stauch was only 17. - Metal_Treasure

38 The Holy Grail - Blind Guardian
39 Grand Parade - Blind Guardian
40 Another Stranger Me - Blind Guardian
41 Otherland - Blind Guardian
42 Age of False Innocence - Blind Guardian
43 Rage Absolute - Annihilator
