Top 10 Best Metal Song Face-OffsPlease do NOT include non-metal bands like ACDC, Led Zep, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Bon Jovi, etc.
The Top Ten
Holy wars. Both are great though
Gotta go with Holy Wars.
This Song Is Like Trying To Pick Between Call Of Duty And Battlefield They Are Both So Good
Basically the entire comment section of either of the songs.
Tough one to call; basically originality + speed vs. Vocals + lyrics.
The Four Horseman may be slower, but I like it more.
They're pretty much the same thing. Love them both.
I say The Four Horsemen.
This is hard. I don't think either are close to the best of their bands, but I might have to go painkiller because of its awesome solos.
The trooper. That's one of the staple heavy metal songs
The Trooper for me... Love Painkiller though...
This is a tie for me.
Easily, Heaven And Hell.
Paranoid is a 2 minute song written in 20 minutes as a filler with a ripped off riff. And the melody sounds like a children song and not a metal song.
Ozzy's era was better, but paranoid is way overplayed for its just being a generic and okay song. Heaven and hell is better.
Heaven and Hell is a classic song from Sabbath. Paranoid is overplayed pop filler.
Same moniker but pretty different styles, like 2 different bands. And very different singers, too.
Heaven And Hell >>>> Paranoid
Gotta say the rime. It was the first classic Maiden song I ever heard - I got into them via The Final Frontier and because I was young when the album came out, I felt it would be impossible to have a song longer than When The Wild Wind Blows. Until I was pointed to the Rime. I have to say, it has the best lyrics in a song ever.
Dante's Inferno. Iron Maiden is a better band but Dante's Inferno is a better song.
Both songs are really epic and apply that cool galloping style.
Here the Rime of the Ancient Mariner!
Run to the Hills.
The answer is obvious - Stargazer.
I say Stargazer, too.
This one’s not even close. The real question is Stargazer vs Holy Wars.
Quite difficult, but Iron Maiden is my second favorite band and this Hallowed is my favorite song.
One of the hardest choices ever... But I have to go with Hallowed Be Thy Name
Two of the greatest metal songs on Earth. I have to go with Painkiller.
Too hard to choose.
Alison Hell is brilliant.
IF YOU CHOOSE A LACK OF COMPREHENSION I WILL GIVE YOU A HAMMER SMASHED FACE
Pantera's better than sepultura, but roots is better than walk.
Roots by a long shot.
This isn't even a face off the answer is obviously Raining Blood, Bleed isn't even in its league not to say that bleed isn't an awesome song.
Powerslave. I really like the bridge part and solos.
Two of the greatest basslines in metal.
The basslines: Dave E. vs Steve H. !
The greatest ballads written by these two bands, also known for being friends - yeah, they may end up with a common performance onstage :)
Either way, it's gonna be cool.
These are my favorite metal instrumentals.
Voice Of The Soul Is A Perfect Song It Doesn't Need Lyrics To Describe An Epic Tale
Pursuit of Vikings! Hail Valhalla!
Without a doubt - A Light In the Black.
Awesome, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple even performed these 2 legendary songs live in California, 1974 (same day, same venue - the famous California Jamming). The videos are available on youtube.
My choice is Mistreated.
War pigs easily. One of my favorite songs
Deep Purple nailed it even live!
Rob Halford is a vocal god but the voice of Hansi Kürsch is godlike, too. I wouldn't underestimate Hansi as a contender, not at all. Hansi's incredible passion in the voice and the way he sings this song give me chills. On the other hand, Rob Halford gives me chills, too. I'd tie it.
Rob Halford and Hansi Kürsch are two of the greatest metal singers ever and their vocal performances are mindblowing here.
These two songs also have similar lyrical themes; both are epic, introspective and emotive.
Nothing Else Matters - I like it better.
Nothing Else Matters.
Both songs are fast and Sammet's voice often sounds so similar to Dickinson's.
This is something I cannot answer. What are your opinions?
