2Disasterpiece - Slipknot

I hoped to see such bands like 5FDP, Meshuggah, Melvins, Electric Wizard, Melvins, Crowbar and etc..

They aren't the heaviest band, but they have some of the heaviest songs on their Iowa album. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Leave this Slipknot thing already please, they aren't even true metal... - somekindofaguy

This above Slayer & Lamb of God? This is what's wrong with the metal community today.

3Angel of Death - Slayer
4Spill the Dirty Blood of Jesus - Infernal War
5Bleed - Meshuggah

This can't be beat. The complexity of the beats and rhythms make this song so extreme and head-banging material. - Dorito

6Scars of the Crucifix - Deicide
7Two Pound Torch - Cryptopsy
8Pandemonic Hyperblast - Anaal Nathrakh

Trust me, You don't know anything about heavy until you hear this, I am serious the only reason its this low is because its not a very known song (because it's so heavy). - Mcflupy

This makes Hammer Smashed Face seem like a weak song made by 4 year olds. - DarkenedBrutality

9Cast Down the Heretic - Nile
10Maze of Torment - Morbid Angel

The Newcomers

?Oh My F***ing God - Strapping Young Lad
?Slit Your Guts - Cryptopsy

The Contenders

11Hordes to War - Immortal
12Slaves Shall Serve - Behemoth
13Scrolls of the Megilloth - Mortification

I am surprised this unknown Christian Rock band got a song on this list.

14Apocalyptic Feasting - Brain Drill
15Jesus Saves - Slayer
16Zombie Ritual - Death
17Laid to Rest - Lamb of God
18Ten Ton Hammer - Machine Head
19Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath

This song is heavy for 1971, but not heavy enough to be one of the heaviest songs ever... - somekindofaguy
