Have you ever been listening to an album, and heard a song or a part of song that sounded like it could have been written by another band.

In my opinion, the beginning of the song Second Sunrise by The Gathering sounds like it could have been made by Iron Maiden in the 80's


Speaking of Iron Maiden, the part of the song To Tame a Land where the verse, and specifically the bass kick in sound straight outta Master of Reality especially that bass tone.


So, are there any examples you could think of, besides these two

When I first incorporated W.A.S.P.'s The Headless Children into my playlist, I got psyched out a few times by the intro of "The Heretic (The Lost Child)" because it sounded almost exactly like an intro to an Iced Earth song. Guess I found out where Jon Schaffer's aesthetic influence came from.

Atlas Rise.... I swear that middle bit is about 20 seconds of Maiden brilliance (at about 4:20 right before the last verse). Or maybe it sounds like their old selves. It's a familiar and rather good part of the song, pity they only used it for a few seconds

The beginning of Emperor's "Beyond the Great Forest" sounds a lot like the section starting 1:52 on Morbid Angel's "Chapel of Ghouls". I wouldn't be surprised if Emperor were inspired a bit by Morbid Angel (even the album covers seem similar, at least in color and vibe).

The middle part of 'Leper Messiah'. :P

Obviously I can't say for sure if Metallica recycled an old Mustaine track to create that section, but I wouldn't be surprised. The part does sound more like Dave's writing than James/Lars.

there was a track (i forget which) on the new aura noir album, that i legit thought was a carnivore cover when i first heard it - especially the vocals are very similar, not just in sound, but the vocal lines could be straight from a young peter steele

The beginning of Dark Moor's "Nevermore" from "The Gates of Oblivion" starts almost exactly like the beginning of "She Is My Sin" by Nightwish... But that's pretty obvious.

I'm pretty sure I could come up with a few more examples, but this one's the only that immediately came to mind.
