Most Beautiful Metal Songs

Pretty self-explanatory. Songs which scream emotion even when there aren't any lyrics.
1Dark Tranquillity
The Mind's Eye

Personally, my favorite instrumental of all time. The acoustics at the beginning are heartfelt and sorrowful. Thundering drums and somber electric guitars kick in about halfway through, the riffs they play are simply mind-blowing.

Fantastic. The acoustic guitar riff opening the song is the best acoustic riff I've ever heard. Bar none. Lonely and depressing, it's nearly impossible to create anything more emotional. Couple that with Garm's haunting vocals and you have one of Ulver's best songs of their impressive career.
3Swallow The Sun

Crushing and heavy, the thunderous drumming and progressively more melodic guitar riffing drill this song into your brain. The smooth clean vocals and brutal death metal growls combine into a title track worth it's name.
Where Dead Angels Lie

Easily Dissection's finest moment, this is one of their most widely known songs, and for damn good reason. Poetic lyrics, Black Metal screeches, and a drumming onslaught worth it's title of "Battery", this song scores in all aspects. A classic song from a legendary album.
5Dark Tranquillity

There is a reason that my license plate on my car says 'Lethe'. Mikael Stanne's most emotional vocal performance ever, the slow acoustic intro misguides the listener, and from there on he is pummeled with a depressing, hateful song. It's like being punched in the stomach.
In The Shadow Of Our Pale Compainion

Epic in every sense of the word, Agalloch's 15-minute monster is one of serenity and beauty. The clean vocals rock, the guitars are slow and mournful, and that awesome sweep pick is sure to put a smile on anyone's face.
7In Flames
December Flower

Back when In Flames was actually good, they released a little album called 'The Jester Race'. This track is extremely melodic and catchy, but Anders' vocals are harsh and furious, a classic In Flames song, also one of their best.
The Gale

It's hard to believe that the opening instrumental of an album as good as 'Above The Weeping World' would be probably one of the strongest tracks on the album. Soft acoustic guitars play amidst the falling rain, before a sweeping guitar riffs and pounding drums take it away, with an ominous voice saying "When it rains, it pours like hell...." This song never ceases to send shivers down my spine.
9Into Eternity
Morose Seclusion

Simple acoustic riffing and epic, awesome clean vocals take this track from a simple closing ballad to a surreal beauty of a song. This song is grossly overlooked, not sure why, but I love this.
Moon Of My Nights

Combining Kalmah's unique high-pitched vocals with piano interludes and some really good lyrics, this track is second only to their best song, 'Heroes To Us', on their album 'Swampsong'. The sadness throughout this song is really noticeable. As always, the keyboards and guitar riffs are insane.
