Top 10 Metal Songs of 2018


The Top Ten

1 All Out Life - Slipknot

I didn't add this... And it was spam voted to #1... - Metal_Treasure

Slipknot at it's best!

2 Diluvium - Obscura

What haven't been said about this band and this song yet? We already know what to expect: perfection. Which this song is. - Metal_Treasure

3 Lightning Strike - Judas Priest

Stupid Slipknot fans don't understand that all Judas Priest songs are masterpieces - James_Hetfield

Why isn't this higher? - Userguy44

It will get higher when more people start voting on this list. It's already in the top 10, it was much lower before. - Metal_Treasure

4 Sire of Sin - Cryptopsy

Heavy as it should be. This is what we expect from Cryptopsy. And the new singer is pretty good - Metal_Treasure

5 My Own Grave - As I Lay Dying

The pop rock part is unsuitable. We are talking about metal here. Pop has no business in metal.
Also, this item has been SPAM VOTED. - Metal_Treasure

Understandable, but you said that metalcore isn't metal, and vast majority metalcore songs have signing if not all, and theirs still a lot of metalcore on the metal encyclopedia. - danimey

Metal_Treasure Isn't that kind of the point of metalcore, and what makes you say what metal is and is not? I think most people who like pop rock would despise of this song. - imfc20

6 Illusive Golden Age - Augury

Just gorgeous! - Metal_Treasure

7 The Bee - Amorphis
8 Sham Pain - Five Finger Death Punch

That's nowhere near metal! - Metal_Treasure

9 Northern Chaos Gods - Immortal
10 Nuclear Alchemy - Watain

Seriously. - Skullkid755

The Newcomers

? A Reason to Fight - Disturbed

LOL. This isn't metal at all. - Metal_Treasure

? Blue on Black - Five Finger Death Punch

LOL. I see some people try to redefine metal. By calling this song metal it wouldn't become metal you know - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Of Unworldly Origin - Revocation
12 The Inversion - Beyond Creation

Quickly becoming one of my favorite tracks by this band. The first half is great and what you expect from Beyond Creation. The second half however really takes it up a notch as the band slows it down and really showcase their versatility. And then, of course, it ends on the heaviest moment making it all come together nicely. Overall, just a really really solid track. - cjWriter1997

13 To Drink from the Night Itself - At the Gates

This should be waaay higher, top 3! - danimey

14 Betrayer - Trivium
15 Pounding the Pavement - Anvil
16 The Valley - Stryper
17 In Limbic Resonance - Kataklysm
18 Everyone - Jonathan Davis
19 Final Resolve - Sinsaenum
20 Clandestine Stars - Obscura

Awesome bass solo followed by awesome guitar solo - Metal_Treasure

21 Humanoid - Cynic

This band is NOT metal anymore. They already play prog rock. And this song is prog rock, too.
Stop adding non-metal songs. Thanks. - Metal_Treasure

22 Take It to the Cross - Stryper
23 Count It Up - Fame on Fire
24 Fairer Than the Sun - Leaves' Eyes Fairer Than the Sun - Leaves' Eyes
25 Ethereal Skies - Obscura

This song showcases how to be highly "technical" and play with jaw-dropping virtuosity without sacrificing the melody. - Metal_Treasure

26 Mater Dolorosa - Augury
27 A Home - Rivers of Nihil
28 Conquer This Climb - Flaw
29 Fake - Five Finger Death Punch
30 I Love It - Fame on Fire
31 Layers of Reality - Pestilence Layers of Reality - Pestilence
32 Towards the Sanctuary - Watain Towards the Sanctuary - Watain
33 The Outer Ones - Revocation
34 Reanimated - A Killer's Confession
35 I Stand Alone - Sinsaenum
36 Sign of the Dragonhead - Leaves' Eyes Sign of the Dragonhead - Leaves' Eyes
37 The Fire of Power - Watain The Fire of Power - Watain
38 Firepower - Judas Priest
39 Fragile Mind - Jeffrey Nothing
40 Emergent Evolution - Obscura
41 Mad Hatter - Avenged Sevenfold

Great song, gives you that vibe of insanity. Also a good song for IV on Black Ops 4!

42 Are You Ready - Disturbed

This is metal? Oh... (by the way, Disturbed has never been a metal band). - Metal_Treasure

I've never heard of that website? Is that really your official source that you rely on? A lot of metal snobs call nu metal "not metal" simply because they don't like it. Instead of going on some obscure website just look up "disturbed genre" and you will find nu metal guaranteed. - danimey

43 Sacred Damnation - Watain Sacred Damnation - Watain
44 Anchorite - Augury
45 Dead Space / Dead Inside - Jeffrey Nothing
46 Like a Mountain - Leaves' Eyes
47 Rats - Ghost

Is this even metal? Not for me. This is just radio friendly rock. - Metal_Treasure

Should be number one

Its metal just not death metal

48 Condemned to the Gallows - Between the Buried and Me
49 Guillotine - Kataklysm
50 Beyond the Pale - Machine Head

...nope...Machine Head were disappointing in 2018. - Metal_Treasure
