General Metal Discussions » Favorite Bonus Tracks?
More often than not, bonus tracks are regarded as filler material that didn't make the original cut. This isn't about songs that are either a demo or a live version of a particular song that was already included on the original album, but completely different songs that were recorded during the studio sessions.

In Manilla Road's case, both "Flaming Metal Systems" and "The Books of Skelos" should've been used respectively on Crystal Logic and The Courts of Chaos. In my humble opinion, both songs make the albums more enjoyable to listen to as a whole. I'm glad that "Throne of Blood" wasn't used on Spiral Castle, though, because it doesn't stand up to the rest of that album.

What are some other exemplary bonus tracks?

I strongly hate when albums are re-released with bonus live or demo tracks, but I could not resist buying Judas Priest's "Screaming for Vengeance" 2012 reissue when I heard "Prisoner of Your Eyes". Easily one of the best JP songs ever!

The two bonus tracks from Running Wild's "Gates to Purgatory" reissue are perfect too.
