Best Songwriters In Metalwolphert
The Top Ten
Now look even for now in the 2016 he can write for all the bands for his error not mistake but time there can not be better songs I've heard honestly Metallica and mega death are just as good but for real the difference is that you can hear the soul in his songs they reach you that's what they didn't behave though there are very few bore successful bands none but the top three so far can even wear Steve's shoes.
he has written so much metal classics and deserves to be recongised more. Some of the best songs he wrote are Hallowed be thy name, Run to the hills, The number of the beast, The trooper and aces high
Best bassist and songwriter EVER! - ahdjanhamid
This guy. if I was a medalcreatologist I would create him a medal.V 4 Comments
Dave Mustaine has such a unique style. Aggressive riffs (Holy Wars, Skin o My Teeth), grooving drum lines (Take No Prisoners, Wake up Dead), passionate lyrics (In my Darkest Hour, Sweating Bullets), awesome bass lines (Peace Sells, Poison was the Cure) and ripping solos (Hangar 18, Kick the Chair). Everything goes in tandem so well, and this is why Megadeth has created many masterpieces over the years.
Songs are metal and not about silly demons, religious stuff, mythology, death and crime but its about social, economical, political, ecological causes then its megadeth we are talking about.
Love his lyrics, they have a lot of passion in them, I suppose I should thank Metallica for making him angry. - PeterSteveBobGraemeBloke
I love that political lyrics.. truly awesome - say10V 3 Comments
just the favorite one. I love the ONE's lyrics that also terrifies and puts you in that situation... the loneliness. Nothing Else Matters is also nice. Enter the sandman is also one of my favorites. Fade to Black, The Unforgiven etc. are also nice...! DIVYANSHU requests you to vote it..!
The only song his written by him self is motorbreath yet has written most of the lyrics for metallica
Great but still can't beat Dave Mustaine and Steve Harris.

Angel of death, Reign in blood, South of heaven, Disciple, Mandatory suicide. Quality not quantity.
We will miss forever your evil tunes RIP my great guitar player...
An awesome songwritter... RIP man!
Nobody would beat the greatest songwriter in metal Tuomas Holopanien. He wrote great songs for Nightwish, and were great masterpieces regardless of who the singer is!
He have written some of the most beautiful metal lyrics and songs ever, like Ocean soul, Sleeping sun, etc. How he is not on the top 3?
Just listen to Ghost Love Score, The Poet And The Pendulum and The Greatest Show on Earth.
His songs are really meaningful and deepV 5 Comments
Riffs are mind blowing, great acoustic guitar parts, lyrics speak for themselves, always has interesting transitions, always keeps it interesting with unexpected changes. He is not only an incredible songwriter, but a very diverse songwriter. The greatest songwriter in metal.
Not many people can write songs that have such a wide range of emotions while pulling off both ends of the spectrum so well. It does not get any better than Mikael.
His Lyrics are Incredible! Check out the lyrics for many of Opeth's songs. His lyrics are like poetry
The best player of words after steve harris one of the best gift music has ever recieved
Chuck wrote the greatest, most inspiring and symbolic lyrics in metal history!
Chuck made the most defining lyrics I've read.
Amazing look up sound of perseverance this proves it
Absolutely. - Caleb9000V 2 Comments
By far the best metal lyricist in the 90'. Just listen to Dante's Inferno, that will do it.
Why isn't Dio at least top 10?
The best hands down. Before voting bands Metallica, iron maiden, and megadeth blindly. Take a minute to listen to tool and learn to appreciate the lyrics. They are about real meaningful stuff. I'd say the best songwriter of the last 20 years - ryanrimmel
He's by far the best there is, whether you're talking about technical genius with his syllable coordination or overall story telling in every way this man is the greatest writer there is
His lyrics reach way beyond conventional and even rational thought. He plays on the psyche of every listener and pushes them to either learn more or question what is.
Straight up artistically rich bald head
His songs are so perfectly written that should be compiled in a "Songwriting Handbook" and studied carefully. Ritchie Blackmore knows how to write melodic metal stuff but it's classy melodic. Not cheesy melodic.
Try "Gates of Babylon" and "Stargazer" (Rainbow).
Incredible gift for riffs, solos and melodies. - Metal_Treasure
She is a remarkable songwriter. Listen to the concept albums Invisible circles (about children) Very beautiful song, very deep lyrics.
After Forever has disbanded, though.
