Best Metal Songs of 2016

The Top Ten

1 Spit Out the Bone - Metallica

Way heavier and more thrash elements then Hardwired

2 Akroasis - Obscura
3 Fatal Illusion - Megadeth
4 Recharging the Void - Vektor
5 Dystopia - Megadeth
6 Hardwired - Metallica

Best in years. - Caleb9000

7 Weltseele - Obscura
8 Square Hammer - Ghost

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.

9 You Gotta Believe - Anthrax
10 Charging the Void - Vektor

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...

The Contenders

11 The Threat Is Real - Megadeth
12 Passer - Katatonia
13 Lying In State - Megadeth
14 Bullet To The Brain - Megadeth
15 Brotherhood of the Snake - Testament
16 Count the Dead - Abbath
17 Poisonous Shadows - Megadeth

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

18 The Stage - Avenged Sevenfold

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.
