Top Ten Fastest Metal SongsSrbin This is a list of the most intense and fastest songs in the history of metal.
The Top Ten
That one part is fast to the part where it doesn't even make sense but it does because it's slayer
Definitely NOT the fastest, not even close to it (it's a great song though). But here we are talking about speed and currently my idea of "fast" is technical death metal - bands like Nile, Brain Drill, Cryptopsy, and several more. Try 'Cast Down the Heretic', 'The Essential Salts' by Nile.
I guess Raining Blood is at #1 because it's popular. - Metal_Treasure
Now I know the lyrics, the song is kind of ruined. (I understood them after watching an epic "Donald Trump sings" parody. Anybody feels like this?
Great song, but some faster slayer songs are..Jesus Saves, Necrophobic, hell awaits, angel of death, etcV 6 Comments
Dark Angel's entire "Darkness Descends" album could qualify for this list. One of the fastest albums of all time. Perhaps even faster than Slayer's "Reign in Blood."
I think Dark Angel give birth to the splitcore music, blast fasting than hell...
Their song The Burning of Sodom is even faster (284 BPM) - Metal_Treasure
Lyrics are messed up. But this should be #1. By far the fastest and craziest song I've ever heard - ryanrimmel
This song is like a good slap in the nuts... hurts like hell for about 45 seconds but then still lingers with you for the rest of the day
Love this song! Lyrics and all!
A crazy fast thrash song from their debut album released in 2013. These guys are teens, aged 17-19 but kick ass. The video to this track is one of the coolest I've ever seen. The song is awesome. - Metal_Treasure
I think Ripping Corpse or Death Is your saviour are maybe faster
A forgotten master piece...
He sings and plays guitar and it is faster than any riff and chord structure above this list.
Today top and if you want cleaner leads check out phantom antichrist
Yeah raining blood is way faster than this ( sarcastic voice ) HELL THIS CAN KICK ITS ASS EASILY
Their song 'Fallen World' is faster than this one. - Metal_Treasure
This should be number 1.It's the fastest song I have ever heard. - blackphoenix
200 bpm is very fast, but there are faster songs out there. - Userguy44V 17 Comments
This album and song are underrated and deserve more attention, this song kicks ass!
Best fast heavy piece of thrash metal
The Best Song Ever In their Album " ENDGAME "
I Love That Record! Chris 's Solo Is Great!
Many songs on this list have some really fast sections but also pretty slow sections.
This one is fast from start to finish and it's 7:30 min long. Besides, the singer doesn't growl and doesn't spit the words - he really sings despite the fast tempo, which is more difficult. And the vocals are amazing.
These additional 4 factors of difficulty have to be taken into account because they make the song more demanding. - Metal_Treasure
Nile just has to be on the list due to speed and accuracy.
My Horus says this should be at number 1
Look, THIS is the fastest song on this list. Just check out the song sample.
Currently this is my idea of "fast".
Drums: George Kollias - Metal_Treasure
Update: I added songs that are probably faster than this song. But this one still has to be in the top 3-5. - Metal_Treasure
Y'all fools need Ra
CRAZY mid-80's proto-death blackened thrash metal! - Brobusky
This song is actually their fastest at 284 BPM - Metal_Treasure
Too much speed. They are like Dragonforce of Thrash only that Slayer can actually play live. (I know Dragonforce is actually newer than Slayer. Please don't kill me.)
I like to think this song is faster than Raining Blood
That duel solo with king and hanneman is so good that it needs to be in the top 3.
number 1V 3 Comments
Death is more faster than every song on the list
Insanely fast, complex and intense guitar work throughout the entire song (4:50 min) - only the bridge is a bit slower.
If I have to choose between 2 songs - one with faster guitars and the other with faster drums, I'd choose the song with the faster guitars.
Drummers can use double bass and double strokes to go faster but guitarists have only their hands and their virtuosity. Besides, guitar work requires more precision.
So I give more credits for difficulty and would rank this song higher than other songs with faster drumming but less complexity. - Metal_Treasure
One of the fastest thrash songs ever written. It isn't all about speed though and has some complex elements to it. Deserves to be in the top tier.
Jeff waters baby
FAAAST is the word that best describes it.
Loud and fast - dubbelvla
This list seems to be a little more of a popularity test on fast songs rather than actual fast song, not saying Slayer is bad, just don't think that it should be #1. I also love Dyers Eve because of its double bass.
Come on now, its way faster than Raining Blood -. -
This song is way faster than Raining Blood, come on guys!
Fight fire with fire and dyers eve should be in the top ten
this list succks
End of this song sounds like apocalypse of the world - dubbelvla
Kick ass song!
Kick ass, and in Wacken 2008, that mosh though. Great song!
Wht is this below Head crusher? This is fast as hell
Come on this song is truely epic every time I hear its I just want to headbang until my head falls off
Ambooo... ,this song should be at the first... Are you kidding me..
Fastest and BEST Metallica song ever. I don't know why Dyers Eve is higher, this is WAY faster than Dyers Eve!
This song you could listen to goes fast but it's a long song! Headbang to this song as fast you can. MASTER, MASTER, MASTER!
Hetfield downpicked 7 times every second...fast
7 downpicks per second, that's quite impressive. That's why he's called god of downpicking. up to 200 bpm I can say. - zxm
The first three minutes are the slow intro and buildup. The FINAL three minutes are the speedy part where Tom motors out lyrics about Hell.
I don't hate Slayer but this song is mid-tempo according to my criteria. - Metal_Treasure
Just the intro guys...
People who hate Slayer are just stupidV 2 Comments
This song is faster than all the songs on this list combined. Just listen to it, It'll blow your mind. - ckejo
I listened to this and I was shocked. Listen to the live version in 1986. It was even faster back than! - Userguy44
Faster than dyer's eve
Faster then half of the songs on this list
I think Master of Puppets is in the top 20 because an overrated Metallica song and more people knows that than this... but this song much faster!
Why is this only #48? - Idiot244
RATTLE YOUR damn HEAD!
What this is by far the fastest metal song
What this is by far the fastest
This song reaches insane speeds, doesn't deserve top 5, but close to it
This song deserves to be number 1
Fast tempo with sharp drums - dubbelvla
Japanese melodic death metal song from 2017; very catchy rhythm with speed - dubbelvla
This should be a lot higher like first place
220 BPM and 16th notes. I saw a video of this being played live just as fast and just as well220 BPM and 16th notes.
This is technically faster than "Through the Fire and Flames"...
Should be in second place
This is definitely the fastest slayer song.
The FASTEST Slayer song, at 248 BPM. This should be #1!
