Best Death Songs
The Top Ten
This song completely defines my music taste! I love every phase of this song, nice composition, its vibrancy, consistency and versatility is the very reason for liking this track.
Best death metal song ever made and solo part yeahh ıt s amazing
Crystal Mountain is amazing but I gotta say my favorite song off of Symbolic is Zero Tolerance, it's like Chuck Schuldiner's warning for all of us, there will be ZERO tolerance.
Overall though, my favorite Death song is probably Within the Mind, so badass.
By far one of he best death metal tracks ever to be made! The acoustic guitar that comes in at the end gives my goosebumps every time there's so many perfect moments during this song. You can really tell that every member put a lot into itV 12 Comments
The most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life. Chuck Schuldiner was a genius.
It's funny that I would vote for a soft instrumental as the best song by a death metal band, and believe me, I love their entire discography. But it's as simple as this: There is no piece of music that I've heard that surpasses Voice of the Soul.
I'm gonna tell you guys a story, well...I don't really like death metal, some bands I really do but then I saw the name of this song on YouTube and I almost started to cry, this man Chuck was beautiful and talented man, this is their best song, I like Crystal Mountain too but this song kills all songs and if you don't agree with me, well...
This is more than a song, this perfectionV 21 Comments
Don't know how come there is no 'without judgement' on this list
This is surely 2nd best after that
Absolute progressive/technical death metal masterpiece. Insane riff variety and a killer solo to boot.
This song not only is prog/death but also it has very true feelings, it can almost bring you to tears sometimes.
Insane. Beautiful riffs, creepy middle part of the song and back to the thrash part.V 5 Comments
This song is simply the best song ever made by a death metal band in my opinion. Epic intro, epic solo, chuck's voice, everything is perfect!
This and Zombie Inc by In Flames are the two best death metal songs ever!
Best Death song; It's so beautifully depressing. Their defining masterpiece in my opinion. - Gasmaskboi19371945
So hard to vote for just one, but I'm almost nearly sure this is the one...V 4 Comments
What?! Come on, Spirit crusher should be the second one!
Super song... But in this list I not see my lovely song Story to Tell...
I like the first part of this song. The bass plays so amazing
God the riffs are fantastic.V 3 Comments
In my opinion the best death metal song, the part after Chuck screams "Now you're in HELL" is a complete hell!
This the best death metal song ever should be on top cleared by miles!
Best death song ever guitar is epic
The opening is phenomenalV 2 Comments
Once I Had Full Control... The Most Brutal Riff
Scary, brutal, hard and fast. Best Death song ever.
Badass Riff... It kinda makes me think about Pantera's "Walk" one.
It should definitely be in the top 5
Best song ever! - OliwallyV 6 Comments
This song surely deserve top 10! And it is in 23! Chuck would be wondered by seeing this! This song has everything! Story! The guitar is superb! The voice is superb! The music compose is just extra ordinary! I love this song m/
One of their most heartfelt songs but still pure death metal, simply amazing
Amazing breakdowns, great lead, epic vocals - Perfect!
So much better than any song on this listV 3 Comments
you know so much about nothing at all
I can never seem to get over the killer bass in this song. Besides that, it has amazing lyrics and (as usual) great riffs. The music video for this was pretty good to.
The main reason I vote for this one I think is because of beavis and butthead
My favorite, but just by a little bit, all their songs are extraordinaryV 3 Comments
The 'Practice what you preach' section: completely mind-blowing!
The absolutely greatest death album
I love this song one of deaths best intros if not the best this song should be in the top 5
The riffs in this song are fantastically dark and slow, one of the greatest Death songs.V 3 Comments
The best Death line up ever has shown in this song! a acoustic intro followed by killer riffs, melodic solos, and rhythmic drums. Of course this procedure seems to be the formula for good death songs, but Lack Of Comprehension created this formula! - nausea_87
This song is everything a death metal song should be. Absolute perfection, that riff, that solo everything.
This is one really defines darkness in death metal with best detailed riffs I have ever listened too.
This is a must study song for anyone willing to make a good death metal songV 6 Comments
Perfect in every way. When I listen to it, my mind travels to a deep and far away place where no earthly problems matter. At 1:10 Chuck growls "when pain is acknowledged! " and what follows is the best riff/drumming I've heard. EVER - BronzeWolf96
One of the top 3 songs of their classic album Symbolic, dominates death metal!
Without judgement what would we do?!
This should be in the top 5 AT LEAST - has a sick drum intro from Hoglan as well as the main guitar riff! - petrucci75hammet
This is my favorite song of my favorite album
My favorite death song on my favorite death album
Zero should be first...V 1 Comment

Simply one of the best songs of Death!
Got to be one of the best riffs ever

The ending solo and outro brings me to tears knowing that Chuck is gone. One of the most chilling songs in their repertoire!
My number 1 death song, powerful and epic, can't believe its
This low on the list, each to his own I suppose.
One of the most epic/badass solos, and one of the most beautiful outros I have ever heard. My favorite by them.
The most inspiring lyrics you will ever hearV 4 Comments
This song from beginning to end is the definition of badass. One of my personal favorites off of "Scream Bloody Gore", my favorite death album
How can be this song out of top ten? It's the best song by Death! Heavy, great riffs, brutal vocals and drums! Better than Crystal Mountain 100times!
What? This is the heaviest Metal song ever, this was #10, how it's 13 now? This song is so much better than symbolic (song). - GREYBOYY
Agree, it's a badass song and also my favorite from my favorite album :D
Good lyrics, thrash riff blows mind. Underrated.V 1 Comment
