Top Ten Best Iron Maiden and Metallica Songs of the 21st Century

I didn't do 80s songs because that would be too easy to make, so these are the best songs of the 21st Century by Iron Maiden and Metallica, and I guess songs from 2000 can be on here as well.

The Top Ten

1 Empire of the Clouds - Iron Maiden

This is probably my second favorite Iron Maiden song, only behind To Tame a Land, and is maybe even the best song of the 21st Century. This song contains about 18 minutes of probably their most epic song out there, and I like how they added that piano to make it sound more unique than other Iron Maiden songs. - DarkenedBrutality

2 Paschendale - Iron Maiden
3 Dream of Mirrors - Iron Maiden
4 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden
5 All Nightmare Long - Metallica

This is the best song from their first 21st century album - Death Magnetic. Kinda have to admit that the album was disappointing because people set very high expectations after legendary albums like Master of Puppets or Ride the Lightning or...And Justice For All. This song has the best riffs though (from the album of course). - LightningBlade

Actually, St. Anger was their first 21st century album, and I'm pretty sure expectations weren't too high for this album because St. Anger wasn't good, and I guess people thought Metallica had gotten so bad at the time, so this album is more of a comeback than a disappointment. - DarkenedBrutality

Metallica's Death Magnetic wasn't too bad, but it's crap compared to Iron Maiden's 21st century music. - DarkenedBrutality

6 The Nomad - Iron Maiden
7 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica
8 The Red and the Black - Iron Maiden
9 Moth Into Flame - Metallica

I was actually impressed with how good this song is, it's better than Hardwired, but I still feel like the album is not going to be as good as Death Magnetic. - DarkenedBrutality

10 When the Wild Wind Blows - Iron Maiden

The Contenders

11 If Eternity Should Fail - Iron Maiden
12 That Was Just Your Life - Metallica
13 Cyanide - Metallica
14 Hardwired - Metallica
15 Different World - Iron Maiden
16 The Unnamed Feeling - Metallica
17 Spit Out the Bone - Metallica
