|Some of my favorite metal song finales/endings|
Song endings can be their most memorable parts - here's a list of some of my favorite endings, many of which I can listen to many times on end. Please provide me with some more examples, I really dig that kind of thing - doesn't even have to be metal.
A honorable mention. The ending of this song has obviously been given much thought and work, and it shows. But the effect looks more like an attempt than a success to me. Still a very memorable ending which may greatly appeal to many.
The ending to the six-song opus adequately provides closure to this emotional story with a brief and to-the-point ending which nonetheless manages to maintain a lot fo power to make a closing statement.
Hole In Me
This song ends extremely abruptly, in fact so abruptly that it catches you by surprise. The song itself is quite mesmerizing and tends to make you lose track of time, that's why the sudden and abrupt ending works as a wake-up-slap of sorts.
One of the best composed song finales for a long, long time. Many thrash bands have tried to emulate it, few have even come close.
The entire finale of this song is brilliantly composed and the soft, whispering fade-out is a masterful ending to this emotional track. Thanks to this ending, Nomad quickly became my favorite track off "Omega Arcane".
The ending to the debut album of this talented Canadian band makes sure it'll stick in your memory for a long, long time. That final 18-second-long scream is sure to leave a mark on your soul.
The climax of the song along with the following final moments of it are some of the most hateful notes and chords I've heard so far. It simply oozes raw, dark emotion. With music like this no words are needed, and you understand the band's message very clearly regardless.
|3||Between the Buried and Me|
One of those cliche wanky, pompous prog metal endings, but one done so nicely and tastefully you wait for it for the entire 14 minutes of the song.
One of the most beautiful and heart-gripping endings ever done in melodic death metal. Simple like everything the band does, but it doesn't need anything more - it's perfect the way it is.
The Sleep of Restless Hours
This is quite similar in its premise to position no. 2 - simple chords, simple emotions, makes you want to come back for more every single time.
