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
2 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
4 Castigation and Betrayal - Anaal Nathrakh
5 The Violation - Fleshgod Apocalypse

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
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

The Contenders

11 Agorapocalypse Now - Agoraphobic Nosebleed
12 Phathom - Portal
13 Bleed - Meshuggah
14 Apocalyptic Feasting - Brain Drill
15 Survival - Extermination Dismemberment

These guys 😳

Extermination Dismemberment is a fairly underground slam/brutal death metal band from Belarus, of all places. Their music is flat out destructive. This is probably my favorite song by them - ryanrimmel
