Top Ten Best Machine Head Songs
The Top Ten
A Modern Day Metal Masterpiece
My introduction to Machine Head!
Someone said that "Locust" is the "Master of Puppets" of this generation. So "Halo" is the "Holy wars" of this generation.
They should not have been instead of anthrax in the big four. They are one of the best bands ever and can't be replaced. Although, machine head can join to make the big fiveV 25 CommentsUListen to Sample
This is the reason I started to listen to machine head! The build up is really nice. Starting slow and finishing hard!
The song that got me into Machine Head! I heard some songs before Locust but this song is what made me fall in love with them! It's song which combine the brutal and the melodic side of Machine Head with excellence
It's the bridge guitar that gets me... It sounds so heavy and awesome. Honestly, it's impossible to NOT like this song if you are a fan of metal in any way.
Locust was great too, but I don't even know if it's even top 10 out of Machine Head Songs. Every single song in The Blackening was much better in my opinion. Then there's also kickass songs like Davidian, Old, Imperium, just to name the most noteworthy ones. Nu metal phase aside, Unto the Locust is their worst album although still very good. Machine Head is absolutely amazing.V 16 CommentsUListen to Sample

Any time a metal band writes a sonata, that's major impressive. And when it sounds epic, that's Machine Head
I didn't think Machine Head could top themselves but they did it with this track. Love the aggressive ferociousness!
Machine Head forever
One of the first songs by them I listened to. When the "I am Hell" portion of this sonata, I became an instant fan.
When I heard the new album, the first opening and starting of the song was awesome man! Really awesome...V 1 CommentUListen to Sample
Just after Halo best Machine Head song m/
GRAVE ME NOW!
Wow this intro is really epic like a rest of this amazing song. Awesome vocals, riffs and solo. If you didn't know what Machine head play just listen "Imperium"!
One of the most groovy stuff in which thrash over shadowed, A real metal treat
This should be Number 1 in the list. Great riff, intro, breakdown, out to, solo, mind blowing song. It awakens devil within me.V 7 CommentsUListen to Sample
We build cathedrals to our pain
The buildup from the start makes this song a blend of thrash and progressive which makes it one of the best machine head songs ever created, not to forget that the song actually gets you going around the 2nd verse, this song deserves top position
This is my favorite song. Period. Of every band, every genre, and every piece of music that has crossed my ears, no song has every been as important to me as this one. We build cathedrals to our pain.
21st should at least be in the top 10 it's a very good song! The acoustic version version of this is amazing as well. I can't believe its only 21st come on people!V 9 CommentsUListen to Sample
One of the best Metal Songs EVER
First song I heard, grabbed me by the ass and threw me against the wall. Unbeatable.
First song of first album, and it's making the earth shake! Even 15 years later, that song still rules. MH brought back the heavy metal to life after the Grunge arised, and this album summarizes why Metal is part of our life :o) "Let freedom ring with the shotgun blast! "
This song hits you right in the face! First Machine Head song I heard and it made me an instant fan. Heavy metal at it's very best!V 11 CommentsUListen to Sample
Best song ever.
Wonderful song, with incredibly heavy guitar work, and an epic breakdown before a really good solo. Not their best song, but it is excellent
Awesome song! Blew me away on first listen!, One of the best thrash/melodic songs that this band has put out! A masterpiece to be played for years to come! MFH ROCK!
This is hilarious, top ten?! I love this song too but not even the best song in a good but definitely not even close to one of their best albums.V 10 CommentsUListen to Sample
One of the greatest most soulful metal solos you will ever listen to. Written from anger and you can feel it through the whole song. Best all around song on the album.
why do you think james hetfeild played this song with with them in concert? BECAUSE ITS SO UBER EPIC! I wish beautiful mourning was up nere the top as well, but this one kicks ass!
A true metal song written in disgust at the media for William Grim's BS comments about Dimebag Darrell.
This should be the best song because its the fastest, greatest and its one of the songs in that rob screams like a motharfahkerV 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
Upvoted to Say This Use to be a Great Extreme Nu Metal Song - vidkid13
My favorite sound for the alarm clock! Definitely wakes you up! ;)
Why the heck is this only 12th!? So dark, it makes me happy. You actually feel like ripping yourself in half, which is what I look for in a metal song, and it is so ' HEAVY!
Great song kinda hard to play on drums but fun as can beV 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!
the FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT chant is amazing, gives me goosebumps every time! aside from that the riffing is incredible, and in general, the song is just awesome.
One of the best thrash metal riffs ever written! Amazing melodic intro followed by riff after riff of brutal non-relenting metal! Whats not to love?
Perhaps the most aggresive in you face songs ever. No band has been able to give off such angry stuff as machine head and this is by far their angriest this song allows you to give up all the rage inside and deserves at least the top 5 its the best song on one of the best metal albums of all time to his viking like vocals to his fast and complex guitarV 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
Along with Davidian, Old is one of my favourite Machine Head songs. Burn My Eyes was 10 years ahead of it's time, and Old is a superb track.
90's thrash classic! Burn My Eyes is great and this song is one reason why!
An old classic (no pun intended)!
Old is old but gold :PV 1 CommentUListen to Sample
All the songs on the new album are good especially this and ghosts will haunt my bones! - wolphert

This is the best cover of this song its 1000 times better than the Cradle of Filth version which ruined the song - christangrant
The best song ever, the best version everV 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
Now I lay the down, Descend the shades of night and Halo are my faourite from this band. I absolutely love the intro to Descend the shades of night, love the chorus to Halo but love everything about this one.V. good song.
Gosh why is this on 24? ;_; don't get me wrong its no one of the best songs but I really like it, should be in the top 15 at least
There are so many Machine Head songs, but this could crack top ten. Beautiful.
Best ever. Best video also.V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
Epic thrasher from probably the best band since Megadeth! It's nice and agro! Wolves, This is the End and Aesthetics of Hate are also pretty damn Godly
This is the ultimate Machine Head song in my opinion, great lyrics, catchy riffs awesome solos Robb Flynn slaying the vocals as always... - PsychoSandman33
The intro is amazing - gibberUListen to Sample
So passionate, dark, uplifting and melodic. One of their best efforts.UListen to Sample
Man is it hard to pick a song, given Machine Head impressive production. But if I had to choose one, I'd go with "Be still and know" : amazing guitar work, brutal verses, pre-chorus that makes you pump your fist in the air, and chorus that burns itself in your mind like a flamethrower through butter.
The first machine head song I listened to. It will forever be one of my favourite songs
Great guitar and drums in this song. The chorus is amazing!
Great Song about perseveranceV 2 CommentsUListen to Sample

My favorite off the blackening
Deadly combination of thrash and heavy metal in this song, so amazing and wonderful! I wondered when I hear this song for the first time, full of riffz and melodies including of pounding of drums like an animal
It's on of my best songs forever
Standout piece about Charles Manson from an epic album, the brutal thrash assault and ruthless power in the chorus blew me away on the first listen
Best song from the new album, best song of 2014, PERIOD
Still not in the top 10?
OUTSTANDING RIFFSUListen to Sample

I don't know how this isn't in the top ten, I defiantly think it should be or at least in the top 15. I love the chorus it's really catchy and epic!.
In my opinion, "Who We are" is one of the best Machine-Head songs ever. The chorus is really epic and impressive and the intro which is sung of Children, too.
Sorry for my bad English, I'm German.
This is one of the best machine head song
The children vocals and the violins at the end are just really cool!V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
Halo and I Am Hell are better, but melodically, this is the most beautiful song machine head ever recorded. You can feel the pain in the singing when you hear it. Just a beautiful song. - fidelcanojr
