Best Heavy Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

This song is awesome. The first time I heard this song I instantly downloaded it and then used it to go to sleep. I usually use Iron Maiden The Trooper to go to sleep but this one is even better.

Hey iron maiden fans you gotta kill yourself. This song made me love iron maiden so much. This song's guitar solos r awesome and they take me higher. Please vote this up. Such an inspirational song

I seriously want an explanation why this song is so low on the chart!

Perhaps the most melodious song ever made

42 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage

Underrated and powerful as all live savatage were. Missing a treat not adding this band to your metallica,maiden,sabbath and rainbow.

43 Trial by Fire - Testament
44 Symptom of the Universe - Black Sabbath
45 Hell Bent for Leather - Judas Priest


46 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica V 1 Comment
47 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
48 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Why does everybody like crap like Avenged Sevenfold when they could listen to the last good thrash metal album ever produced?

The anthem of confusion ridden angst! Definitely top ten for the solo.


49 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

Excellent example of what should be on this list

50 Alison Hell - Annihilator

Honestly, this song should be in the top 10. This masterpiece is a must for every metalhead. - Metal_Treasure

51 Communication Breakdown - Led Zeppelin

This song isn't a heavy metal song. Not even hard rock. Its more likely a punk rock song. But the guitar riff style was quite a metal style. If you check the guitar cover then you'll see how Page used the E (low) string for the riff. Most metal guitarists use that style. But they play it faster and with more power (by holding the pick more firmly). - zxm

Whoever put this on here should've realised that this isn't a heavy metal song

52 Screaming for Vengeance - Stereoman
53 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

Amazing in so many ways, my favourite heavy metal song. - yutex

Quite literally one of the best (if not the best) metal solos ever.

54 Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy
55 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth
56 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple
57 Sign of an Open Eye - Gorgoroth
58 The Killchain - Bolt Thrower
59 Open the Gates - Gorgoroth
60 Walk with Me in Hell - Lamb of God

Log r best and Chris on drums is amazing
