This was 1 on loudwire, should be 1 here and everywhere! - Mikbiter15

Good song, but it doesn’t deserve to be #1 on Loudwire’s list, Dystopia by Megadeth deserves the number one spot.

You Gotta Believe - Anthrax You Gotta Believe - Anthrax Cover Art
Charging the Void - Vektor Charging the Void - Vektor Cover Art

Wow underrated as hell I know that dystopia is good but this is so much better even if kiko nailed it and I know that everyone is not gonna lokk over here because they don't know the band so...

Poisonous Shadows - Megadeth

One of Megadeths best songs, along with In My Darkest Hour, Peace Sells and Rust In Peace

The Stage - Avenged Sevenfold The Stage - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

I think that this song is definitely among the top 3 songs released this year, even though I'm not a huge fan of this band but gotta appreciate their skill and musicianship on this song - The Stage in totality was a very good album especially considering the risk they took to deviate from their style of playing.

Clearly the best song on this list. Avenged Sevenfold although are an extremely mainstream band yet, they have the balls and talent to release a 73 minutes long album. They keep on experimenting with their style keeping a listener like me interested and anticipated for their next release.
