Best Extreme Metal Songs of All Time

Nord666
Death Metal, Black Metal, Thrash Metal and Grindcore (in a way). No Melodic stuffs, no traditional Heavy Metal etc.

The Top Ten

1 Raining Blood - Slayer

Wow, how can I deny Slayer's awesomeness. All hail Lombardo, the godfather of drums, he got magic hands, no doubt. - Nord666

Great song I'm surprised no freezing moon by mayhem. oh well.

Meshuggah, Slipknot, Lamb of God, Bathory (newer)? Really? This started the entire wave of it all!

2 Angel of Death - Slayer

Honestly sounds just like raining blood

This Song Just Blows My Mind

I like when the drums come in after the guitar breakdown. Sounds like a machine gun.

The most brutal and heavy song of ALL TIME

3 Lack of Comprehension - Death

As a representative to this vote, I want you all to know that Death pioneered the Death metal genre during mid to late 80's thinking Death's place in number 3 maybe also good but Death at least deserves to be here (not to be overwhelmed by incoming bands in this list) Lack of Comprehension is one of their heaviest songs (or maybe of Extreme metal genre). RIP Chuck Shuldiner. Death influenced many Death metal bands.

Technical old school death metal with jazz influences, just beautiful...and brutal.

4 A Fine Day to Die - Bathory
5 Quintessence - Darkthrone

This is just the perfect Black Metal song. Personally, I prefer Lamb of God (which is not in this list) but this song is absolutely epic

It was hard to choose, but I think Darkthrone deserve the crown! - Nord666

The riff...by Odin almighty...the riff!

Ehh, I like Darkthrone and all, but I don't particularly care for this track. - ryanrimmel

6 Welcome to Hell - Venom

It isn't extreme metal - somekindofaguy

7 Dead by Dawn - Deicide
8 Lost Wisdom - Burzum

His voice! Oh, that was the craziest voice I've ever heard!
The guitar was INSANE! - Nord666

9 All Shall Fall - Immortal

A perfect song for this list. - Nord666

10 Curb - Nickelback

There are so many things wrong with this. I can't stop laughing. - ryanrimmel

When I first heard this album my mind was blown by the music. The vocals were filled with emotion but at the same time, low, dark, and with an eerie feel. Kind of like the sound a horse makes. The guitar work is very basic and someone playing for a week can play the songs, but that is the genius behind it. It creates a very chaotic atmosphere when there is no musicianship. The drums were as generic as could be, but there was reason behind it. The generic drums that might as well have just been a drum machine, made a satanic atmosphere that made the music delve into an entirely new level a heaviness I have never heard before.

Nickelback is a super satanic Black Metal band! They are better and more underground than those posers Mayhem and Gorgoroth! *sarcasm* - SirSkeletorThe3rd

All hail underground black/death metal. Clear Death and Bathory influences.
