Top 10 Metal Songs of 2019


The Top Ten

1 Hexed - Children of Bodom

This is probably my favourite song from one of my favourite albums of 2019, hexed by children of bodom. Anyways hexed is one of their best albums in my opinion - UltraLunalaX

It's one of their best albums for sure. Some believe it's their best album since 2003's Hate Crew Deathroll or since 2005’s Are You Dead Yet. - Metal_Treasure

2 The Raven Child - Avantasia

Hansi's vocals in this song were absolutely amazing. Probably one of these songs with hansi at his best in my opinion. - UltraLunalaX

@PhoenixAura81 - yes, Hansi voice sounds exactly like Arjen Lucassen once described Hansi voice: he's like "this giant standing on top of the mountain, filling the whole valley with his singing." - Metal_Treasure

Epic masterpiece. I love Hansi’s vocals in this song. In terms of this year, this song is only second to the masterpiece known as Ira Dei. - PhoenixAura81

3 Raven's Flight - Amon Amarth

Love the song and can't stop listening to it. Can't wait for the album to come out! - RogerMcBaloney

This is a Viking battle anthem if I’ve ever heard one. Super badass and catchy. - MetalFoREVer1228

4 Raise Your Banner - Within Temptation

Resist is definitely a huge departure from what those who are fans of Within Temptation are used to. In fact, I'm fairly certain that most metal fans don't consider it a metal album (as if I didn't already know that). And in a way, they're kinda right. But if there's any song on the album that encapsulates Within Temptation as a symphonic metal band, it's "Raise Your Banner". It's the song on the album that feels the most like Within Temptation when compared to their older material, especially with those amazing vocals near the end. - tonyb500

Just to let people know, this song wasn't added by me. It was spam voted to #1. - Metal_Treasure

6 Bismarck - Sabaton

Amazing song

This song is epic.

This should be higher than anything else on this list. Sabaton is continuing a long tradition of releasing extremely well put together songs, as well as catering to fan requests. - TheRock222

My 2nd favorite song from their 2019 album - I love its speed, melody, chorus, everything. - Metal_Treasure

39 Ira Dei - Mago de Oz

I added this in the best songs of 2019 list and I’ll add this here. This song is the title track of the album of the same name released on March 8th (ten days ago as of 3/18/19). Ira Dei is a masterpiece by Spanish folk metal band Mägo de Oz. It has literally everything! Amazing vocals, excellent guitars and drums, all kinds of other intruments like organ and violin played beautifully, and SYNTHS (synths in metal is a genius idea if you ask me)! I recommend this song to everyone. It’s amazing and currently my favorite song of the year. - PhoenixAura81

40 Holy Ground - Within Temptation

Alt rock and not metal - Metal_Treasure

41 No More Hollywood Endings - Battle Beast
42 When a Shadow is Forced Into the Light - Swallow the Sun

Swallow the Sun's new record probably gonna end up as my favourite of the year. Quite a shame that the band doesn't get any attention at all, as 90% of the metalheads tend to be a huge sucker for mainstream albums. This style of music is a quite a departure from the stuffs they've done so far - very original and soulful album.

43 Don't Turn Your Back - Angel Witch

Angel Witch comes back! - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

UListen to Sample
44 Untethered Angel - Dream Theater

I though this was 2018? - danimey

Officially it's 2019 because the album is of 2019. Also, it was on youtube in Dec 2018 and because metal songs don't get radio airplay, it doesn't matter much. - Metal_Treasure

UListen to Sample
45 Survive - Flotsam and Jetsam Survive - Flotsam and Jetsam
46 Head of a Pin - Overkill

I only wish it had a different intro! The intro is boring and mediocre, doesn't fit and doesn't give a good start. But it's a small price to pay because the rest of the song is FIRE! The intro is about 40 seconds long (you can always skip it) but after it you have 5 great minutes. - Metal_Treasure

48 Supernova - Within Temptation
49 Black Brick - Deafheaven

Umm...the riff at 1:55-2:45 (almost 1 minute) sounds exactly like the intro to Funeral Hymn by Exodus (2007). I liked the song but the rip off is too long and too obvious to be easy forgiven. - Metal_Treasure
