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 A Fine Day to Die - Bathory
4 Welcome to Hell - Venom
5 Dead by Dawn - Deicide
6 Lost Wisdom - Burzum

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

7 All Shall Fall - Immortal

A perfect song for this list. - Nord666

8 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.

9 Kill or Become - Cannibal Corpse
10 Denial of Life - Death

The most brutal song ever by Chuck. That intro was a killer! - Nord666

The Sadistic drums on this song makes me psychopath. - GREYBOYY

The Newcomers

? 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.

? 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

The Contenders

11 Your Disposal - Cattle Decapitation
12 Freezing Moon - Mayhem
13 Whiplash - Metallica

Kurt Cobain's favorite song.

14 I Cum Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Well, guys, this is Cannibal Corpse at their best! Chris Barnes kills it and Paul played high profile.
So ya. - Nord666

Crazy song but still makes me to listen to it. - GREYBOYY

Nickelback is on this list? - ryanrimmel

15 Eaten - Bloodbath

This list is weird

16 Into the Crypt of Rays - Celtic Frost

Amazing composition, the vocalist ate the dictionary I think, laugh out loud. - Nord666

17 Black Metal - Venom
18 Dead but Dreaming - Deicide

Probably the fastest Deicide riffs! - Nord666

19 Funeral Fog - Mayhem

The vocalist is an alien! Euronymous and Vikernes the victim and the murderer played together and Hellhammer was awesome as always. - Nord666

20 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator
