|Best 8min+ Metal Songs Ever|
The Black Lodge
One of the catchiest main riffs in metal ever, so many awesome movements in this song. Nothing particularly unique about this song though, it is simply one of the best songs I ever heard.
|2||Dir En Grey|
Japanese Metallic Psychos Gone Opeth on this one, cept better, with some awesome army growls accompanied by an irresistible riff that the band just had to copy and put on their next long song because there probably isn't a better one in existence.
Don't like Opeth in the studio much at all, which is weird because seeing them live was awesome, but this song.....is the only song by them that I have on my playlists but I could listen to it over and over....
One of the best brutal-Melo Death song in existence? yeah. pretty much. Man if I were Christian I would of certainly burnt my bible and wrote 666 in hebrew on my forehead while listening to this.
Redemption's 15 minute epic that feels like it is 6 minutes long, and one of Ray Alder's best vocal performance in Redemption, A song Dream Theater wish they could make.
Call me Gay or whatever for thinking this might be the best Agalloch song ever, but this song is so happy :))
Ind I Fjeldkamrence
Aka - the last song in Bergtatt, pretty much all of early Ulver compacted into one song sup.
The Black-Viking Metal song, makes me wanna go to the nearest tavern and tell tales of the battles I recall many, many years ago.
Love Kills us All/ Life in One Day
Pretty much if Disney would want to make a metal edition to Fantasia, this song would be in it.
Haven't heard any old-school Fates Warning yet but if they are like this, considered those on my to get list. Riffs on this song are soooooo tasty.
|yo. Honorable mention is Disillusion - Back To Times of Splendor|
|funny so many people love bleak, I find it one of their most boring songs|
|Bleak is great, but not as good as The Drapery Falls or Blackwater Park.|
|Bleak shits on those songs, can fall to sleep to those songs, almost feel asleep on the album|
|no Metallica = fail|
|Tool - 10,000 Days|
|tool makes me instantly erect so idc|
|10k days is awesome(the synced version) but it aint a metal song|
|opeth- godhead's lament|
ulver- anything off bergtatt
electric wizard- funeralopolis
|I would say prog metal, Jizz|
|1, 3, 6 and 10 rule|
|neurosis and isis is zzzzZZZzzZZZ |
|"neurosis and isis is zzzzZZZzzZZZ"|
lol says the guy who listens to opeth
|Crimson, 'nough said.|
|Leper Affinity shits all over Bleak, Drapery, and BWP. but they're all good.|
Kind of a lesser known Devin Townsend tune but Pixellate is a little over 8 min and amazing.
|There are more Opeth albums? :o|
|though not 8 minutes long, Hallowed be thy Name is and will always be the best long metal song|
|i can't say i agree|
|Tool - Lateralus|
Iron Maiden - The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Metallica - Orion
Rainbow - Stargazer (although this one could be seen as Hard Rock, and not Metal)
Those are just a few of those that comes to mind.
|"though not 8 minutes long, Hallowed be thy Name is and will always be the best long metal song"|
and yeah, definitely!
|"The Black-Viking Metal song"|
List is generally good although I would have chosen a different Agalloch song and probably The Drapery Falls for Opeth. Agreed with 1, love that song.
|like really, Nokturnal Mortum does not have any viking themes at all. At all.|
|EVERY SONG ON LATERALUS. TOOL IS PROBABLY THE BEST METAL BAND OF ALL TIME, MOST COMPLEX TOO.|
|Thunderstone - Land of Innocence. The most epic power metal song ever!|
|Every 8+ minute song by Vektor is fantastic.|
|dreams of eschaton|
|Incorrigible Bigotry by Arghoslent is a great 8 min song.|
