Top 10 Metal Songs of 2018


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Illusive Golden Age - Augury

Just gorgeous! - Metal_Treasure

3 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

4 Ethereal Skies - Obscura

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

5 Anchorite - Augury
6 Emergent Evolution - Obscura
7 Lightning Strike - Judas Priest

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

8 Mater Dolorosa - Augury
9 The Bee - Amorphis
10 Nuclear Alchemy - Watain

Seriously. - Skullkid755

The Newcomers

Perhaps the best metal instrumental of 2018 (so far) - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 My Own Grave - As I Lay Dying

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

The pop rock part is unsuitable. We are talking about metal here. Pop has no business in metal.

27 The American Nightmare - Ice Nine Kills

This song is legendary! This is the real #1!

Sounds like an A7X song... And also so not metal... - Metal_Treasure

You think that every song with screaming is metal? LOL. Now I understand why you added a bunch of non-metal songs to this list. Man, you need to educate yourself.

LOL. This song isn't metal. Neither is the band, by the way. - Metal_Treasure

I love it when I just magically find a song that I put on repeat over and over. This is very good progressive death metal song that has caught my interest recently. - cjWriter1997

35 They Played Rock and Roll - Saxon
36 New Rise - Primal Fear
