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.
Uno de mis favoritas del metal! Mi álbum favorito del mismo.V 15 Comments
The most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life. Chuck Schuldiner was a genius.
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...
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.

Good song need's to be at first
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.
Better than crystal Mountain. That song has a great intro riffs and Need to be first. - TommyleeorionV 11 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
It's so hard to pick one, but this is it. It's the perfect mix of melodic and brutal, going straight from the most epic and pretty melody, straight to the most unsettling, and then back. And that's all within one riff.
Lack of comprehension, thriving on your cliche, compelled by self resentment... words of a poet. Its hard to chose out of chucks infinite display of talent his genius, just barely beats empty words for me

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
The best song ever!V 5 Comments
One of their more brutal songs
Once I Had Full Control... The Most Brutal Riff
Death have so many amazing songs it's impossible to pick a favourite. Chuck was a musical genius
Best song ever! - OliwallyV 7 Comments
Why this song is not in the top 5?!
THE ANSWER CANNOT BE FOUND!
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!
Make me head bang so much!
Absolute classic! The section after the solo is timeless!V 5 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
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
Steve Di Giorgio nailed that bassline! - Metal_TreasureV 4 Comments
The song that got me into Death. Will always remain my favourite!
Got to be one of the best riffs ever
Simply one of the best songs of Death!
Much, much too underrated.V 3 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
So much better than any song on this list
Amazing breakdowns, great lead, epic vocals - Perfect!V 3 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?!
nice riffV 2 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
This song is just pure genius.V 4 Comments
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
My favorite of all Death songs.V 2 Comments
The ending solo and outro brings me to tears knowing that Chuck is gone. One of the most chilling songs in their repertoire!
One of the most epic/badass solos, and one of the most beautiful outros I have ever heard. My favorite by them.
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 greatest outros.V 4 Comments
Amazing riffs, amazing solos, amazing song!
Love the guitar riff in the first verse!
one of the highlights of their sophomore album
First Death song I ever heard and it's amazing! The blast beats are insane
Not enough Leprosy on this list.
So brutal...V 1 Comment
Greatest Priest cover in the world! Chuck's voice really adds to the epic nature of the song proving he can do it almost as well if not better than Halford
Great song to begin with, and Death just made it better. When I heard this for the first time, my mind was blown.
Eh? Why isn't this in the top 5? I am discusted that my favourite death song is not in that top 5! Come on people, vote it up, seriously... jeez.
Great cover, but there’s only room for one Painkiller in my music library.
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
Maybe one of the most underrated death's songs!
Death metal masterpiece
Fast, heavy andabsolutely great song. Can't belive it's so low on the list.
It's the most exciting death metal that I ever heard!
Insane one. Great riffs. Underrated.
Good lyrics, thrash riff blows mind. Underrated.
Are you kidding me? #20? Easy top 3. - spchetan11
Most brutal moshpit song I've ever been in.
I remember in high school I listen to this song for the first time and couldn't stop listening to it in each class
One of my personal favourite solos by them and the riffs are amazing
In my opinion, this is Evil Chuck's best solo next to Voice of the Soul
The guitars are insane
R.I.P CHUCK, YOUR THE MAN!
This deserves the top 10. Seriously
I am addicted to this song it has 2 of deaths best solos from both Andy and Chuck, this is such an underrated song
Best song ever, ridiculously underrated. The bass is awesome and the solos are amazing.
Godly solos. Underrated.
How is this not at number one? It is by far one of the most amazing songs by Death. And it has a more than beautiful beginnings. Okay now I'm just ranting to get the minimum content.
Beautiful acoustic intro, killer switch to death metal, awesome bass guitars, great lyrics!
Every song of Death is amazing, it's very hard for me to make a top ten. But I think this song deserves a bit more credit then Lack of Comprehension, which is also very good by the way.
SHOULD WE NOT PREPARE?!
Maybe the best off Scream Bloody Gore (with the exception of Zombie Ritual) it absolutely kills and the guitar at the beginning is on a spiritual level
The beginning is beautiful and spooky at the same time. The guitar is just out of this world. This is a masterpiece.
As much as I don't like death metal, this wasn't bad. - Caleb9000
This deserves a spot in the top 10.V 5 Comments
Simply amazing, so powerful, and beautiful at the same time. Definitely deserves to be Number 1.
Amazing drumming, groovy bass and face melting guitar work! Chuck in his finest hour!
Complex, fast heavy, and meaningful, chuck schuldiner at his absolute best! RIP

DIE! DIE! DIE!
AUSOME SCREAMS CHUCK

Heavy and brutal
One Of Bests - Glauberson
One of the best metal solos I've ever heard.
One of the best solos I've ever heard by any metal band.

Sick solo section! - CosmicSea
I love the lyrics. - Caleb9000
Sounds like Slayer a lot. Nice lyrics
Some says shes naive
shes just a stupid bitch
( definition of nicki minaj)
Starting with very sad melody riff
THe first death song liked totally made me a fanV 1 Comment
Ohhh, The drum plays sooo crazy!
Lol I finally understand, don't look at the ranking, each death song is the best there is no ranking between them trust me
It should be in the top 10 or at least in the top 20
I have to add this!?! This is one of the best Technical Death Metal song I've ever heard. Maybe it should be placed at 10 replacing Suicide Machine - Nord666
The solo it's a masterpiece
The drums are just amazing, u don't get beats like that often its just so unique. I think this death's best drum song. The lyrics are so meaningful (that goes for all death songs though). This is one of my top 3. Being so low on this list proves all death songs are top 10 :D
WHY IS THIS SONG HERE IT SHOULD BE WAY HIGHER UUURRGHHH I'm REALLY MAD that's WHY I'm TYPING IN CAPTIONS
This is a flawless flowing song, the way chuck measure the vocals with those riffs just so brilliantly catchy
Every song in this album deserves to be at least #20
The most underrated Death song, one of the best!
Too underrated this needs to be top 10 the guitars are amazingV 1 Comment
Come on guys... I know every songs by this band are awesome!
But Cosmic Sea 57th I don't think so...
Songs like Baptized in blood, Mutilation, Forgotten past, Primitive ways, Defensive personalities, Nothing is everything, I.T.P, Sacred serenity, 1.000 eyes, Misanthrope, Bite the pain, To forgive is to suffer... will be always overlooked, perhaps for their own good while Crystal mountain and Spirit crusher (guess they have a pretty face) will reign in every top ten. Well well... - CosmicSeaV 1 Comment
Great Solo... Great song
How this one is not top 3?
