The Top Ten
If you love metal,but didn't heard this song.
Please go away and throw your "metalhead" tag.
A lot of Iron Maiden songs deserve to be in this list. But Hallowed be thy name for the win!
Yeah, I'm a Metallica fanboy, but this song rightly deserves to be #1. It builds and builds and builds...epic track from Iron Maiden's greatest album.
I can spend my whole life with this guys music - the best band on earth. I love maiden - thanks for giving such a great music - Karthik BloreUListen to Sample
The way Blackmore uses the phyrigian dominant scale is crazy. He uses it to bring us back to the time of an Egyptian slave. Then, Dio's vocals bring us into the world of a man who worked his whole live for nothing when the man he was working for fails in his quest.
Epic. Dio and Blackmore killing it.UListen to Sample
Simply gorgeous and complexUListen to Sample
Favorite is Hallowed be thy name but this comes really close and deserve top 3
All Best song Heavy Metal Classic ronnie james dio everUListen to Sample
This classic is longer than the poem that inspired it. Epic Maiden.UListen to Sample
It's doom metal, not Traditional Heavy Metal - Metal_Treasure
The first metal song the world ever heard
Yeah, love this one. It's not fantasy-themed, just a great, catchy track about no regrets and appreciating the moment.UListen to Sample
Great vocal line, great guitars and bass. The drums are ok, but I could imagine rhythm and sound of drums if it was played by original and inventive Clive Burr R.I.P.UListen to Sample
Of course it's traditional. It's 30-years old and thrash is 35-years old, which means thrash is more traditional than most forms of metal. Pfft!
It's Not Traditional Heavy Metal, it's thrash metal - Metal_Treasure
MASTER!UListen to Sample
Because never has the title of a song been so fitting. Dimebag killing it.UListen to Sample
Orgasmic song - TonyIommiGodUListen to Sample
It's hard rock. Great hard rock, but hard rock nonetheless.UListen to Sample
This track is so heavy, so moving, and I never tire of it. Spine-tingling stuff from the excellent album The Great Cold Distance.UListen to Sample
Emotive and crushing from some of the best, though least known, going round. YouTube it.UListen to Sample
One of the most venomous and emotive metal tracks I've ever heard. Not even Korn could replicate this fury and these breakdowns. Traditional? Probably not.UListen to Sample
Let's keep it traditional then, and keep the die-hards happy with some Sweet Leaf.UListen to Sample
Beast!UListen to Sample
Man, Iron Maiden were the business on their first 5 classics, and this classic is just one of many.
EpicUListen to Sample
I think it's a cover, but they own it.UListen to Sample
My favourite track from NotB.UListen to Sample
Because of the killer opening and middle solos. Beast!UListen to Sample
Because it's ferocious, technical, and brutalises every song on here - plus I'm sick of propping up Maiden fans.UListen to Sample
Because the only reason to own Deftone's album White Pony is to have Maynard James Keenan whispering you into a false sense of security, then bring the house down with the best chorus he's ever written. Venomous!UListen to Sample
Because this is Hetfield's baby, thru and thru, and it is a tremendous ballad with a big heart, and his closing solo is a moving one.UListen to Sample
Corey Taylor killing it lyrically and vocally in a moving tribute to love and loss.UListen to Sample
