The Top Ten

1 Welcome to Hell

When I first time heard this song I was scared! The screaming is so evil that it will make you shiver whenever you listen to it... All songs in this list are undoubtedly awesome but this one out-stands its counterparts.

What a composition, what an epic sound! OBVIOUSLY this song deserves the first spot... Black Metal should be second by the way.

2 Black Metal

The song which had coined the term 'BLACK METAL' in late 80's!
What a composition! Amazing vocals, guitars and absolutely crazy drumming!
Venom for the win.

Amazing song, truly evil, amazing drumming, evil lyrics and shredding guitars. Defiantly Cronos, Mantas and Abbadon's greatest.

How is this song not number 1 people? "Lay down your soul to the gods rock and roll! " enough said!

For Me The Best Venom song, from the album Metal Black m/

4 At War with Satan

Fantastic song, It's 20 minutes but never feels like it ever drags. It's also very atmospheric and has some amazing riffs. I highly recommend it.

5 Witching Hour

Underrated song, one of the best on this album, best one from Venom by the way

This is the most amazing and epic satanic song I have ever heard. The lyrics about Satan and sabbath are so nice to ear this is a masterpiece of Metal and music

One of the great early thrash songs and a staple of the genre.

HELL'S BREAKING LOOSE! The best venom song, and while other songs were good, they were nothing compared to this.
