4 Spirit Crusher - Death

Oh how times have changed, I made this list when I knew barley anything about Death Metal LOL - christangrant

This list looks completely different now and much better - your original top 10 contained 7 songs by Death, 2 by Cannibal Corpse and one by Opeth... - Metal_Treasure

5 And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope - Ne Obliviscaris

This is the sickest metal intro ever. - Metal_Treasure

A long and beautiful intro. Hand down. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Towards Dead End - Children of Bodom

This beautiful into's got a short guitar solo in it - Metal_Treasure

12 Blackwater Park - Opeth
13 Evil to Cast Out Evil - Nile

The intro's got an oriental vibe to it, which isn't a surprise - Nile songs are about Egypt. - Metal_Treasure

14 Empty Words - Death
15 The Exorcist - Possessed
16 Kafir! - Nile
17 Only Ash Remains - Necrophagist
18 Scream Bloody Gore - Death
19 Immortal Rites - Morbid Angel
20 Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags - Amon Amarth

That's a very underrated intro and song. The riff is brilliant. - Metal_Treasure

21 I Cum Blood - Cannibal Corpse
22 Pull the Plug - Death
23 Apparition - Spawn of Possession
24 Voice of the Soul - Death
25 Twilight of the Thunder God - Amon Amarth
26 Seed of Filth - Six Feet Under
27 Ode to the Sun - Obscura

It's melodic and brutal at the same time - the combination I love the most (when properly done). That gong sound is really brutal - I'm not sure they used an actual gong though, the drummer probably hit the top of his cymbals to produce that sound.
Just play the sample. - Metal_Treasure
