Aces High = F sharp Minor intro. The rest is in the e minor for the most part.

Far Beyond the Sun = C minor with quite a bit of modulations here and there.

Scarified = F sharp minor for the most part.


[EDIT]

I hope these are all means to achieve something; as in you learning some theory. I hope you've done this already and are just checking to see if you're right or to get some sort of clarification. If that isn't the case you should start feeling really guilty right about now.....Seriously though, if you want to know how to figure out the key you should find yourself a lesson on this site itself and if you have a problem about some finer point; post the specific question and someone is bound to get back to you with an answer.


[EDIT]

Yngwie's song IS in C minor however he does downtune his guitar a semitone so on the guitar you'd be playing C sharp minor.
