The Top Ten

1 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

I definitely agree with this song at #1. This song has everything Power Metal is known for but it takes the subgenre to a higher level: epicness (epic lenght, composition and orchestration), great vocals (here vox are even multi-layered to create harmonies), epic storytelling, melodic choruses, perfect performance.
By the way, the song sample is from a live show in 2015 and is on their 2017 live album. - Metal_Treasure
