The Top Ten

1 Master Of Puppets (Metallica) vs Holy Wars (Megadeth)

This Song Is Like Trying To Pick Between Call Of Duty And Battlefield They Are Both So Good - christangrant

Holy wars. Both are great though - ryanrimmel

2 The Four Horsemen (Metallica) vs The Mechanix (Megadeth)

The Four Horsemen Is A Epic Tale While The Mechanix Is About Having Sex At A Gas Station - christangrant

Hard one but I like the Four Horsemen a little bit more. - Rambles

They're pretty much the same thing. Love them both. - IronSabbathPriest

I say The Four Horsemen. - Metal_Treasure

3 The Trooper (Iron Maiden) vs Painkiller (Judas Priest)

The trooper. That's one of the staple heavy metal songs - ryanrimmel

4 Heaven And Hell (Black Sabbath) vs Paranoid (Black Sabbath)

I have to go with Heaven And Hell.

Same moniker but pretty different styles, like 2 different bands. And very different singers, too. - Metal_Treasure

5 Beyond the Realms of Death (Judas Priest) vs My Last Sunrise (Demons and Wizards)

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. - Metal_Treasure

I pick Beyond the realms of Death. - Rambles

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.

6 The Bard's Song (Blind Guardian) vs Melancholy (Iced Earth)

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. - Metal_Treasure

7 Dante's Inferno (Iced Earth) vs The Rime of the Ancient Mariner (Iron Maiden)

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. - IronSabbathPriest

Both songs are really epic and apply that cool galloping style. - Metal_Treasure

Dante's Inferno. Iron Maiden is a better band but Dante's Inferno is a better song. - Metal_Treasure

8 Run to the Hills (Iron Maiden) vs Breaking the Law (Judas Priest)
9 War Pigs (Black Sabbath) vs Mistreated (Deep Purple)

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. - Metal_Treasure

Deep Purple nailed it even live!

War pigs easily. One of my favorite songs - ryanrimmel

10 Raining Blood (Slayer) vs Bleed (Meshuggah)

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. - germshep24

Raining Blood without a thought. Meshuggah is okay but nothing compared to Slayer. - Rambles

The Contenders

11 Walk (Pantera) vs Roots (Sepultura)

Walk is way better. I personally hate the album Roots. - Rambles

12 Lack of Comprehension (Death) vs Hammer Smashed Face (Cannibal Corpse)
13 War Eternal (Arch Enemy) vs The Pursuit Of Vikings (Amon Amarth)
14 Iron Man (Black Sabbath) vs Stargazer (Rainbow)

The answer is obvious - Stargazer. - IronSabbathPriest

15 Painkiller (Judas Priest) - Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden)

Two of the greatest metal songs on Earth. I have to go with Painkiller.

16 Black Star (Yngwie) vs Voice Of The Soul (Death)

Voice Of The Soul Is A Perfect Song It Doesn't Need Lyrics To Describe An Epic Tale - christangrant

These are my favorite metal instrumentals. - Metal_Treasure

17 Peace Sells (Megadeth) vs Powerslave (Iron Maiden)
18 Alison Hell (Annihilator) vs Elimination (Overkill) V 1 Comment
19 Nothing Else Matters (Metallica) vs a Tout Le Monde (Megadeth)

I like more Nothing Else Matters. - Metal_Treasure

A Tout Le Monde is better in my opinion. - Rambles

20 Paranoid (Black Sabbath) vs A Light In the Black (Rainbow)

Without a doubt - A Light In the Black. - Metal_Treasure
