Best Heavy Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Shepherd of Fire - Avenged Sevenfold
142 Rust in Peace... Polaris - Megadeth

Even if this song was just a lyric sheet, it would be in the top ten.

143 Thorns of Crimson Death - Dissection

Probably the greatest song ever written. Dissection's magnum opus. 8 minutes of pure bliss. It's well written, it's resplendent, it's beautiful, it's heavy, and it's expertly executed. Jon may have been a scumbag as a person, but his music was unbelievably good. Storm of the Light's Bane is possibly the greatest metal album ever written.

144 Repentless - Slayer

Just plain awesome!

145 Halloween - Helloween
146 The Rain - Aetherian
147 Heavy Metal - Judas Priest
148 Are You Dead Yet? - Children of Bodom
149 Now I Lay Thee Down - Machine Head

Great song! but this is far from the only one from one of the greatest heavy bands out there

150 Kill for Metal - Iron Fire V 1 Comment
151 The Nile Song - Pink Floyd
152 You've Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest

Seriously? a Judas Priest classic and it isn't in the top 10? very sad list.

153 Paschendale - Iron Maiden V 2 Comments
154 I Will Not Bow - Breaking Benjamin
155 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween

One of the best metal song ever, love Kiske's voice.
