Heaviest Metal Songs of the 21st Century

Metal_Treasure
Please, don't add Slayer, Metallica, Slipknot, etc., because even the heaviest thrash metal songs wouldn't sound heavy next to the songs on this list.

If you aren't sure what is the idea of "heavy" in metal as of today, play at least the samples to the songs that are currently in the top 3:
Pandemonic Hyperblast by Anaal Nathrakh
Carrionshine by Cryptopsy
Spill the Dirty Blood of Jesus by Infernal War

The Top Ten

1 Pandemonic Hyperblast - Anaal Nathrakh Pandemonic Hyperblast - Anaal Nathrakh

Ver heavy but I hate it! - PhoenixAura81

2 Carrionshine - Cryptopsy Carrionshine - Cryptopsy

It's heavy start to finish but the sound they get at 1:48-2:00 is really insane. Nuclear explosion? - Metal_Treasure

3 Spill the Dirty Blood of Jesus - Infernal War Spill the Dirty Blood of Jesus - Infernal War
4 Castigation and Betrayal - Anaal Nathrakh
5 The Violation - Fleshgod Apocalypse

Listening to it just makes me speechless... - Userguy44

I think that the symphonic arrangement makes the sound very dense and although it brings some melody, it actually makes the song less accessible. - Metal_Treasure

6 Slaves Shall Serve - Behemoth

I considerate Shemhamforash the heaviest Behemoth song - Doomed_God

7 Two-Pound Torch - Cryptopsy
8 Quantum Catastrophe - Brain Drill

This madness lasts for about 11 minutes. Most of the other songs on this list are about 3-5 minutes long. - Metal_Treasure

9 Let the Blood Spill Between My Broken Teeth - Benighted

There are several bands named Benighted - this is the French band. - Metal_Treasure

10 Kafir! - Nile
