What! It should be on top 5. It is the best metal song I have heard and the piano's sound strikes my mind. Very good screaming with good lyrics. Just listen once! Proper heavy metal! This song rocks, more than "Chop Suey - System of a Down"

All Together... Run for cover!!!
This song is better than walk in my opinion. Well in fact, it's better than any other song in the top ten
Best Pantera song but overall best metal song of 90's. I respect Metallica but Enter Sandman isn't my favorite but add this and take away Sandman and you have a great top ten.Listen to sample
Yes, probably not a metal song but in my opinion they deserve number 1 through Vinushka so all the same Dir en grey get my vote.
Vinushka is the number 1 metal song but either way Dir en grey deserve the top space so this gets my vote.
Great song but I don't count this as metal though vinushka is metal agitated screams is metal dead tree is metal vinushka deserves number 1Listen to sample
I saw this list and i couldn't believe there was no Tool. Maynard is awesome in everything he does. The man is a genious.
This song is pure genius, though this song isn't a very difficult song it is a very complex and difficult to learn song because of the length, arrangements, and frequent time signature changes.
IT is a song so brilliantly put together by musical geniuses.
The bass adds so much to the song, one of the greatest bass licks of all time.
The guitar adds a strange but great feel to the song with long drawn out notes.
The Drums really show of the drummers skill and have a very unique style and sound.
Overall its a grandmaster piece!
Tool is amazing one of the best rock bands of the 90's opiate was epicMore comments about Schism - Tool

It not only represents a heavy metal song but also a song full of meaning and emotions. It has different phases and the lyrics goes beyond words. Amazing song. Amazing band.
The most epic song I've ever heard,
The whole song has a lot of different feelings.
It should have much more votes.

Best song from judas priest
I have seen it on graspop
And was amazed by the impact it made on me even
After all those years
Very Well constructed song, especially the screaming:)
There is so much Metallica on this list - I think I'm gonna be sick. Sure I like them, but it seems to me that they're considered as the gods of metal even though they have about 4 actual metal albums and the rest are just either sellout country crap or a weird mix of ridiculously disorted guitar sounds and a clutter of kitchen utensils. I just don't get it. There aren't a lot of Sabbath songs on this list, and what about Judas Priest. They've been making beautiful heavy metal for 40 years straight and you people can only scoff up a handful o their songs. I think that hallowed be thy name is better than master of puppets any day. AND WHERE'S ALL THE MOTORHEAD!?!? Not many people will read this because it's so far down on the list, but if you do, don't think for a minute that Metallica is the best metal band because they're American and have the word metal in their name. Think for yourself - there's better stuff out there.Listen to sample
"Revolution the only solution"
Very good screaming. Good lyrics. It's a pretty old song(1998). Just listen once. Proper heavy metal!

Super heavy riff, great vocals, super fast drums, perfectly layered instruments, solo is down right insane, what else could you ask for? IT'S DOMINATION.Listen to sample
Listen to all of the instruments, vocals, guitar, solos and riffs, bass and drums. This is a true masterpiece that should be in the top 5.Listen to sample
This whole album is just perfect; and this song should be way higher on the list. It doesn't matter what sort of mood I'm in, this song remains one of my all - time favourites.
Sad to see this so low on here. This came out when metal was getting off the ground. Lots of talent in the band to boot
The great song! Much better than all songs of Korn and Slipknot.. Just Perfect
This song deserving to be in top 20 best metal songs! !
