The Contenders

11 The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind Guardian

It's not a metal song but made me check out the band because I fell in love with Hansi voice and the uniqueness of this ballad was so promising. The rest is history - many people know I love Blind Guardian. The story is a bit longer though - I didn't like instantly Blind Guardian metal songs because I wasn't ready for their complexity and density of their sound. But this band eventually made me love metal like crazy. - Metal_Treasure

Greatest metal song. Wise decisions from big metalheads.

16 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth

When I was a new metal fan I didn't like death metal and growls. This was the song that got me into death metal. I loved those great riffs and wanted to hear them again and again. After a while I suddenly realised that growls didn't bother me at all. And continued with all death metal bands under the sun. Currently technical death metal is my top preference. - Metal_Treasure

17 A Light In the Black - Rainbow
18 Iron Man - Black Sabbath
