Best Death Songs
The Top Ten
This album, more specifically this song just brings back so many memories of me and my dad. It's a masterpiece and the best death metal song to grace my ears. And the emotional value I get from it seals the deal for me.
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.
The intro is so catchy with the drums and the lyrics are amazing
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.
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
This song is everything a death metal song should be. Absolute perfection, that riff, that solo everything.
This song tells a story without saying even a word. This one is definitely USDA choice.
The most beautiful piece of music I've ever heard in my life. Chuck Schuldiner was a genius.
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...
Absolutely the best Death song. So many amazing transitions and riffs.
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...
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!
This and Zombie Inc by In Flames are the two best death metal songs ever!
I always thought it was a motorcyclist on the album cover before - Alkadikce
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
THAT B A S S. Plus "you know so much about nothing at all" is the coolest metal line I've ever heard.
Ok, this is my new favourite Death song. The riffs and vocals have got to be the best from Death so far. - DarkBoi-X
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.
In my opinion the best death metal song, the part after Chuck screams "Now you're in HELL" is a complete hell!
Best death song ever guitar is epic
This the best death metal song ever should be on top cleared by miles!
Best opening and awesome speed
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!
This is the song that got me into Death Metal - V4noM
Ohhh, The drum plays sooo crazy!
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?!
Such a great piece full of killer riffs and crushing moments. Vocals were outstanding at the mid-section especially, that moment wherein the song gets atmospheric and eerie all of a sudden with Chuck growling "Spirituaaal Heaaling". - Black_Abbath
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
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
One of the most epic/badass solos, and one of the most beautiful outros I have ever heard. My favorite by them.
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.
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 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.
I love Chuck's opening scream!
Amazing riffs, amazing solos, amazing song!
Love the guitar riff in the first verse!
Death is to music, what life is to Death.
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/
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
One of their most heartfelt songs but still pure death metal, simply amazing
So much better than any song on this list
This is my #1 death song and I think that crystal mountain sucks
Good lyrics, thrash riff blows mind. Underrated.
Great song just like every other, vocals are amazing.
Is that too much to ask?
I know I'm gonna get hated for this but I don't like this. Even though Death is among one of my favourite bands and I'm not really interested in Judas Priest, the original was much better than this. - DarkBoi-X
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.
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.
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
First death metal song that I like!
Death metal masterpiece
Favourite Death song
I remember in high school I listen to this song for the first time and couldn't stop listening to it in each class
I love this song! should be top 5
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
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!
Starting with very sad melody riff
THe first death song liked totally made me a fan
Beware of the sharp edged weapon called human being - deathmetachuck
Very underrated here
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!
My current favourite Death song. The riffs and the vocals here have to be some of the greatest from the band, particularly from Chuck Schuldiner himself. - DarkBoi-X
So brutal, yet so technical. And still, so melodic. Thank you Death. This song is a must if you are just getting into heavier and faster music.
This deserves the top 10. Seriously
Their most progressive song ever.
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 them
Some of Chuck's best vocals! - winner333
Heavy and brutal
One Of Bests - Glauberson
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!
I used to think that Symbolic was the best Death album but now I think that Human is a better album after listening to it and this is easily the best song from Human. Underrated and belongs in the Top 3. - DarkBoi-X
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.
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.
The album is spiritual healing not individual toughts patterns
Sick solo section! - CosmicSea
I love the lyrics. - Caleb9000
Sounds like Slayer a lot. Nice lyrics
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
Amazing song with awesome chorus; very underrated
This has to be their most underrated song - Metalhead666
Epic technical brutality.
Very underrated - Left2Die
Lol I finally understand, don't look at the ranking, each death song is the best there is no ranking between them trust me
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
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
Come on guys... I know every songs by this band are awesome!
But Cosmic Sea 57th I don't think so...
My favorite song of all time
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
Its like halo
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!
Fast, heavy andabsolutely great song. Can't belive it's so low on the list.
Got me into them, beast of a track and totally underrated.
It's the most exciting death metal that I ever heard!
Insane one. Great riffs. Underrated.
Is this a bonus track? - germshep24
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... - CosmicSea
Top 10 work!
There is a perfect calming part in that song. While riffs going on harshly, it being soft suddenly.
The first lead on this solo is so badass. I think this song deserves to be higher up on the list
52th? Really guys?
Lol I can't believe its at 50
More like life
DIE! DIE! DIE!
AUSOME SCREAMS CHUCK
Staring beyond the wall a thousand times over
So underrated. It deserves to be in top 10
