Thumbs up: +1
Here ill try and describe a list of musical moments, or sections of songs that can be the highlight of a song, album, or even a bands career. These are the parts that send a shiver down your spine, that are so epic, either by themselves or because of the way the fit into a song, that you want to just play them over and over. Of course, this only covers music i listen to alot so it'l mostly be progressive metal with some power or thrash thrown in. I tried to order them loosely in terms of quality but don't expect anything exact

1. Kamelot: The climax of "Memento Mori", super powerful, i consider this 30 secs or so the climax of kamelot's carrer
2. Pain of Salvation: the part about 5:55 into "the perfect element"
3. Dream Theater: the melody then buildup at the end of the instrumental part of in the presence of enemies part 2 that leads into the ending.
4. Suspyre: the last minute or so of "siren"
5. Orphaned Land: about 4:38 into "disciples of the sacred oath" (its really hard to describe what part of the song it is)
6. Dream Theater: the ending of "Metropolis part 1"
7. Blind guardian: the chorus of "a sacred world", also the quiet part that builds up to the ending.

I've never seen a list done like this so its sort of an experiment so hopefully its easy enough to follow.

No mention of Black Sabbath? The rain and church bells followed by the metal riff ranks among one of metal's finest moments.

I like this, very personal perspective, but if you include exact timestamp, maybe we can share the experience
