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 15 Comments
The intro is so catchy with the drums and the lyrics are amazing
What great lyrics this song has.
That main riff is so yummy
I think this song is the best example of the type of music chuck was tryring to write. Therefore, I think it's death's best.V 15 Comments
The most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life. Chuck Schuldiner was a genius.
How could human write this! This is from another planet!
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...V 30 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.V 12 Comments
First song that introduced me to death and first death song I learnt on guitar. I'm not a fan of death metal vocals but the guitar work in this song just got me hooked. The riff after the breakdown is one of the best riffs of all time in my opinion and made me want to learn this on my guitar
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 amazingV 6 Comments
Killer opening riff, solid vocals
The best death metal song
Just speaks to me
One of their more brutal songsV 11 Comments
Their best song in my opinion
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!V 6 Comments
Best opening and awesome speed
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 epicV 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.
Amazing Bass - Glauberson
The main reason I vote for this one I think is because of beavis and buttheadV 5 Comments
This is the song that got me into Death Metal - V4noM
The spine-chilling intro..enough said! - Arhaan95
The song that got me into Death. Will always remain my favourite!
Got to be one of the best riffs everV 5 Comments
This, The Philosopher and Lack of Comprehension are the esentials for begginer death fans
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?!V 3 Comments
Only 2%? Not even Top 10? What is wrong with you people, this is their best song in my opinion it displays the talent and creativity of Chuck Schuldiner! Every Death song does that but this one does it one of the best! - V4noM
Best song. Hands down - V4noM
A beautifully philosophical song, incredible solo, and a gut wrenching outro. The perfect track to end any album, and my personal favourite song of all time.
One of the most epic/badass solos, and one of the most beautiful outros I have ever heard. My favorite by them.V 7 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
I love all of Death's songs, but I vote for this one 'cause this albums is insanely underrated in my opinion.V 4 Comments
This song is not Top 5?
LET JUSTICE BE DONE
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 albumV 3 Comments
Amazing riffs, amazing solos, amazing song!
Love the guitar riff in the first verse!
This song has one of the best solos I've ever heard in my life (and I'm a necrophagist fan) chuck was a monster on the guitar and with sound compositions
Should be top 1
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 amazingV 5 Comments
I love Chuck's opening scream!
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.V 2 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
Top 10 at least
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. - Caleb9000V 6 Comments
This is my #1 death song and I think that crystal mountain sucks
Is that too much to ask?
Good lyrics, thrash riff blows mind. Underrated.
Are you kidding me? #20? Easy top 3. - spchetan11V 1 Comment
Death metal masterpiece
One of my personal favourite solos by them and the riffs are amazing
I remember in high school I listen to this song for the first time and couldn't stop listening to it in each class
In my opinion, this is Evil Chuck's best solo next to Voice of the Soul
I love this song! should be top 5V 2 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
Awesome song. My favorite by themV 2 Comments
Should be wayyy higher. Its loud, shocking, and abrasive what more could you want from a Death song?
Maybe one of the most underrated death's songs!
Very underrated here
Starting with very sad melody riff
THe first death song liked totally made me a fan
This song is amazing. From the solo to the main riff to the drums to the lyrics, just everything about it is awesome. The fade gives a good effect. The last lyrics during the fade just gives me these chills knowing that it was the end to the 'Sound of Perseverance' album, Death's last release, before Chuck's death.
One of the best metal solos I've ever heard.
One of the best solos I've ever heard by any metal band.
Most underrated Death song by far. It deserves top 10 for sure. It has one of Death's best solos ever!V 5 Comments
This deserves the top 10. Seriously
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!
From The Album Scream Bloody Gore (1987)
Chucks screaming and the riffs are amazing. if you don't headbang to this song somethings wrong with you
This is their best song in my opinion. Great drumming, amazing riffs and a sick bassline. I mean every Death song is awesome but this one has to be the best.
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?!
Some of Chuck's best vocals! - winner333
Heavy and brutal
One Of Bests - Glauberson
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)
More like life
DIE! DIE! DIE!
AUSOME SCREAMS CHUCK
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
Very underrated - Left2Die
Amazing song with awesome chorus; very underrated
This has to be their most underrated song - Metalhead666
One of their best choruses with a truly crushing riff :D
Lol I finally understand, don't look at the ranking, each death song is the best there is no ranking between them trust me
Ohhh, The drum plays sooo crazy!
My favorite song of all time
Come on guys... I know every songs by this band are awesome!
But Cosmic Sea 57th I don't think so...
It should be in the top 10 or at least in the top 20
Too underrated this needs to be top 10 the guitars are amazing
Very genius great solo also
Great Solo... Great song
How this one is not top 3?
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!
Is this a bonus track? - germshep24
Got me into them, beast of a track and totally underrated.
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.
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
There is a perfect calming part in that song. While riffs going on harshly, it being soft suddenly.
The best one of Death band. No doubts
52th? Really guys?
The first lead on this solo is so badass. I think this song deserves to be higher up on the listV 4 Comments
A killer, a taker, a fighter is what you are!
How can be only 53?
Fake... is a word... you represent
Your existence. On. Earth... I resent
Awesome riffing and vocal rhythm there, and the solo section absolutely smokes, James seems to have brought the best out of Chuck in my opinion. Best death album and lineup
So underrated. It deserves to be in top 10
