The Art of the Overture

A great intro track is a rare thing. These are my favourites in no particular order.
18Bathory
Nordland I


"Prelude"

best midi horns.
17Ensiferum
Victory Songs


"Ad Victoriam"

best midi choirs.
16Moonsorrow
Voimasta Ja Kunniasta


"Tyven"

15The Beach Boys
The Smile Sessions


"Our Prayer"

Brilliant harmonies.
14Emperor
Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk


"Al Svartr"

An excellent transition into Ye Entrancemperium.
13The xx
xx


"Intro"

Best song on the album. No midi horns though.
12Bal-Sagoth
The Chthonic Chronicles


"The Sixth Adulation of His Chthonic Majesty"

A great mix of various instruments and styles. Every Bal-Sagoth album has a top-notch intro, but this one might be their masterpiece.
11Elysian Blaze
Blood Geometry


"A Choir For Venus"

Fantastic ambient track.
10Helloween
Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I


"Initiation"

some cool midi horns here.
9Helloween
Keeper of the Seven Keys Part II


"Invitation"
8Summoning
Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame


"A New Power is Rising"

great midi horns and a choir that recites Tolkien's ring-verse in black speech.
7Finntroll
Midnattens Widunder


"Intro"

Sounds like a perverted disney soundtrack.
6Amorphis
Tales From the Thousand Lakes


"Thousand Lakes"

A nice moodsetter.
5Janelle Monae
The ArchAndroid


"Suite II Overture"

I wish the whole album had this instrumentation.
4Leviathan
Scar Sighted


"-"

A slow, brooding ambient track. Probably inspired by 3.
3Burzum
Det Som Engang Var


"Den Onde Kysten"

one of my absolute favourites.
2Liturgy
The Ark Work


"Fanfare"

best midi horns.
1Bathory
Nordland II


"Fanfare"

best midi horns.
