Heaviest Metal Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse

Well heavy but there are other heavier songs from Cannibal Corpse that haven't been mentioned here. - GREYBOYY

This list is awful - ryanrimmel

I'm happy to say I'm from the city that the band with the heaviest song ever is from

Yup - Fiend

2 Bleed - Meshuggah

This can't be beat. The complexity of the beats and rhythms make this song so extreme and head-banging material. - Dorito

Nothing out there is like this.

The double kick is pretty great

I'll admit hammer smashed face is really heavy, but it's actually a terrible song.

I picked Bleed because Meshuggah is WAY better than Cannibal Corpse. Meshuggah's worst is still better than cannibal corpse.

3 Spill the Dirty Blood of Jesus - Infernal War

Check this out, guys. Slipknot? Slayer? Even Hammer Smashed Face isn't heavy enough compared to this song and some other really heavy songs on this list. - Metal_Treasure

This makes Raining Blood by Slayer look like a soft rock song - christangrant

4 Disasterpiece - Slipknot

I hoped to see such bands like 5FDP, Meshuggah, Melvins, Electric Wizard, Melvins, Crowbar and etc..

They aren't the heaviest band, but they have some of the heaviest songs on their Iowa album. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

This above Slayer & Lamb of God? This is what's wrong with the metal community today.

Someone here has broken caps lock.

5 Angel of Death - Slayer

Listen guys, Slayer is good, but they're not the heaviest in any sense. - ThatoneMetalhead

Why is slayer on here

In any sense u don't know what your talking about they are the heaviest, just not the most brutal.

6 Pandemonic Hyperblast - Anaal Nathrakh

Trust me, You don't know anything about heavy until you hear this, I am serious the only reason its this low is because its not a very known song (because it's so heavy). - Mcflupy

This makes Hammer Smashed Face seem like a weak song made by 4 year olds.

This is what I'm talking about. It's for this songs I pay internet.

7 Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer - Behemoth
8 Oh My F***ing God - Strapping Young Lad

Happy Camper is way more heavy than this song, but is heavier than a few of the songs above it.

Top 5 material easily. - cjWriter1997

The title is accurate. Personally, nothing comes close to this track. The sheer energy, pacing of lyrics (try figuring out all the lyrics to the song without looking it up.), throat-curling screaming by Devin Townsend, which is then greeted by an absolute complete BREAKDOWN of guitars, drums, and ambience just puts this track on a whole other level beyond anything else.

You just need to listen to it yourself, Heavy is a massive understatement for this track. - BloodyThunderX

9 Scars of the Crucifix - Deicide
10 Crown of Horns - Cryptopsy

The Contenders

11 Raining Blood - Slayer

How is this not the heaviest song ever I mean common ITS SLAYER

"How is this not the heaviest song ever I mean common ITS SLAYER"
You probably don't know other extreme bands besides Slayer then... - somekindofaguy

12 Maze of Torment - Morbid Angel
13 Two Pound Torch - Cryptopsy
14 Scrolls of the Megilloth - Mortification

Great album. I consider the songs "Terminate Damnation" and "Eternal Lamentation" from the same album a bit heavier, though.

I am surprised this unknown Christian Rock band got a song on this list.

15 Slaves Shall Serve - Behemoth

I love this list is so good

16 Psywar - Mayhem
17 Cast Down the Heretic - Nile
18 Hordes to War - Immortal
19 Apocalyptic Feasting - Brain Drill
20 Immolation - Immolation
