Most beautiful metal songs

Orion definitely has to be my favorite instrumental, it always reminds me of the stars, cold clear nights in the middle of winter with all the stars twinkling brightly, and perhaps the moon to supervise them. The only thing that could make it better is a girl to share it with, oh well. (Oh and a bottle of booze :D )

Hello, what do you all think are the most beautiful and or emotional metal songs? I'm thinking along the lines of voice of the soul by death. Nothing by a band with veil in their name, (black veil brides, pierce the veil) no bands that give metal a bad rep like those two listed. Thanks!?

Are you seeing easy on the Pop like bands using metal sounds? Just imagine it less vocal heavy, not about sappy heartbreak, and the singer getting testosterone shots.

Try the song Fey by Babylon Whores. It is about a friend who dies from an H overdose. Now that my best friend has died the same way, I'm almost afraid to listen to it, I will probably break down crying. I shall confront that song at some point today. In the mean time I think I'll listen to all the songs suggested in this thread.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
