Top 10 Death Metal Songs with Intros on Acoustic or Clean Electric Guitar

I like the contrast between a soft intro and a pretty heavy main part of a song.

Acoustic guitar - everybody knows what it is.
Clean electric guitar - electric guitar with a clean guitar signal (no distortion, no big effects). The clean electric guitar doesn't sound loud or heavy and it's often used in parts where an acoustic guitar would sound good as well.

Very often people confuse the sound of the clean electric guitar with acoustic guitar but on this list the difference between them isn't important because both types are accepted.
