Top 10 Lääz Rockit Songs

Metal_Treasure
"Lääz Rockit is a thrash metal band formed in San Francisco, California in 1982. Although one of the lesser-known groups of the Bay Area thrash metal scene, each album in their history has received high critical marks." (Wiki)

Early Metallica was once one of Lääz Rockit’s supporting acts. Lääz Rockit returned the favor with a 2011 opening slot at Metallica’s 30th anniversary concert at the Fillmore.

Subgenres - thrash metal, speed metal, heavy metal.
Lääz Rockit released 6 albums and their most recent album came out in 2008 (most recent as of Nov 2015). They work on a new album.

Current or former Lääz Rockit members have also played in Heathen, Angel Witch, Vicious Rumors, Slough Feg, Pro-Pain, Skinlab, Soulfly, Ill Niño and M.O.D.

The Top TenXW

1Shot to Hell

The speed, bass intro, screams, vox, guitars, solos - all amazing. I can see why Metallica was their supporting act in the early 80s.
I have nothing but admiration for their singer Michael Coons - he sounds like Bobby Blitz meets King Diamond meets Rob Halford. - Metal_Treasure

2In the Name of the Father and Gun
3Fire In the Hole
4Curiosity Kills

It's live version in Japan 1992 is maybe even faster. I watched many live videos by Lääz Rockit and I would say they are damn good live. - Metal_Treasure

5My Euphoria

A song from their most recent album Left for Dead, 2008 - a great comeback album after 17 years. Almost the same line-up, only the drummer is new. Their sound is updated but fortunately 2 things remained the same: great vocals and guitar solos.
I think vocals and lead guitars are the elements that stand out in their entire discography. - Metal_Treasure

6Most Dangerous Game

One of my Top 10 speed metal songs. Just awesome. - Metal_Treasure

7Forced to Fight

I have to admit that depending on the mood, I would put at #1 every song from #1- 8 on my list, including Forced To Fight. - Metal_Treasure

Raw. Innovative. A timeless classic. Laaz Rockit at their very finest!

8Necropolis

A very cool instrumental, awesome guitars. - Metal_Treasure

9The Omen

A beautiful ballad, where the singer Michael Coons showcases that his great voice is also suitable for non-thrash music. This thrasher sounds here like a male version of Sade! And this makes me think he's probably the best thrash singer. Yes, the best vocal skills and versatility. - Metal_Treasure

10Brain Wash

The Contenders

11Last Breath
12Take No Prisoners
13Liar
14Leatherface
15Means to an End
16Dead Man's Eyes
17No Man
18Holiday In Cambodia
19Say Goodbye M.F.
20Outro

A 6 minute instrumental from their 2008 album, awesome guitars again. - Metal_Treasure
