Reggie’s Essential 25 Favorite Instrumentals #14 & #13

bc_rich_widow_wmd_bass_top_imageI love the power of a good instrumental song.  Sometimes they can be energizing or even relaxing depending on the band’s intent with the song.  Some bands use an instrumental song to display a different, sometimes softer side.  And, sometimes an instrumental is a collection of left over riffs and drum parts that didn’t make the final cut.  Or, perhaps they just couldn’t find the words to go with the music.  However they are composed, the instrumental song is a track I look for and hope to find on any album; though there are some bands where it’s almost an expectation.  This list is 25 word-less songs that I find essential to my music library.  I wouldn’t sweat over the exact order, but yeah the ones at or near the top of this list are definitely my favorites.  I know there are many more instrumental songs out there, but these are mine…so to speak.  This list is also limited to only three per band and only one band made this list three times.  Enjoy!

14.  March of the Lor – The Sword

This a particularly heavy The Sword song.  I love how the song can swing from a cool 70s vibe and they turn into a song that could induce a nice circle pit.  The sword has a calm and collective demeanor on stage and still cause a pit; as I witnessed at a show last year.  These dudes can be quite heavy when they want to be and that’s one of the many reasons I like them so much.

13.  Into The Lungs of Hell – Megadeth

Considering all the talent that has ever graced this band, I think they should have recorded more instrumental songs.  Between the rhythm section and their guitar playing prowess, they could have made instrumental songs a regular thing.  But, they have a few and this is the one that made my list.  Again, loads of guitars!  Yay!  This a very well spliced fan video featuring humans…being human.

  1. Love that Sword tune. I have it on my playlist for online gaming. It makes diving into battle so much more fun and epic.
