Heaviest Metallica Songs

Not necessarily the most epic or the 'best', but the heaviest Metallica songs that hit you like a ton of bricks and weigh you down like a lead anchor. Fast, slow, or moderately paced... Heaviness is all that matters.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Frantic
22 All Nightmare Long

Should be top 10. Fight Fire with Fire is the clear number one, but this song is heavy and amazing, just like Fight Fire with Fire. - Metarock

This whole album should be on here

23 Human

The song projects a very grim, aggressive feeling, as if you are being weighed down. This is definitely at least one of the heaviest Metallica songs out there that I've heard.

24 Creeping Death
25 The Struggle Within

Badass Rif!

26 Eye of the Beholder

Come on, this song is one of the heaviest metal songs!

This song is too underrated.

27 King Nothing
28 For Whom the Bell Tolls
29 All Within My Hands
30 That Was Just Your Life
31 Master of Puppets

Totally rad, heavy song. The song runs on nightmare fuel.

32 Wherever I May Roam

I would say this one is the second heaviest song of Metallica, I mean just listen to the drums and the bass here, not really fast, but just so heavy!

When I heard this song for the first time, I was blown away by the feel this song projected. This actually deserves to be in the top ten!

33 The God that Failed

This is a real heavy song!

How is the 31st? It should be top 5 at least.

34 Hit the Lights

Not the heaviest but I voted for this because it should be way higher on the list - somekindofaguy

Vote this one PLEASE! This is one of the most screamy Metallica songs ever and the solos make it even heavier!

35 Ride the Lightning

Listen to it its heavier then like holier than though and stuff and shouldn't like master of puppets be higher up maybe. Its only like one of there best songs with an insane guitar solo and a heavy rift. and what the hell king nothing is higher than like battery. at least half the people voting here must be posers

36 The Frayed Ends of Sanity
37 Enter Sandman
38 ManUNkind
39 The House Jack Built
40 Don't Tread on Me
