Top 10 Metal Songs of 2018

The Top Ten

Diluvium - Obscura Diluvium - Obscura Cover Art

I would like it more if it was instrumental. I don't like extreme metal vocals (except most thrash and speed metal).

I perfectly understand that because it was the same with me when I was a new metal fan. - Metal_Treasure

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

All Out Life - Slipknot All Out Life - Slipknot Cover Art

Slipknot at it's best!

Best song ever

Lightning Strike - Judas Priest Lightning Strike - Judas Priest Cover Art

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

Why isn't this higher?

It will get higher when more people start voting on this list. It's already in the top 10, it was much lower before. Update: in the meantime a user put it on dishonorable mentions... - Metal_Treasure

Sire of Sin - Cryptopsy Sire of Sin - Cryptopsy Cover Art

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

Of Unworldly Origin - Revocation Of Unworldly Origin - Revocation Cover Art
Anchorite - Augury Anchorite - Augury Cover Art

This is the longest track on the album (08:07) but it's so well organized / composed that it's fluid.

Sham Pain - Five Finger Death Punch Sham Pain - Five Finger Death Punch Cover Art
The Bee - Amorphis The Bee - Amorphis Cover Art
My Own Grave - As I Lay Dying My Own Grave - As I Lay Dying Cover Art

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.

Ethereal Skies - Obscura Ethereal Skies - Obscura Cover Art

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

The Contenders

Incense & Iron - Powerwolf Incense & Iron - Powerwolf Cover Art
Firepower - Judas Priest Firepower - Judas Priest Cover Art

Betrayer - Trivium Betrayer - Trivium Cover Art
Illusive Golden Age - Augury Illusive Golden Age - Augury Cover Art

Just gorgeous! (play the sample)

Augury? Ok. I'm down for that.

Raise Your Banner - Within Temptation Raise Your Banner - Within Temptation Cover Art
Nuclear Alchemy - Watain Nuclear Alchemy - Watain Cover Art

Seriously.

Mad Hatter - Avenged Sevenfold Mad Hatter - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art
