Top 10 Metal Songs of 2019

The Top Ten

1 Hexed - Children of Bodom 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 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 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

5 Singularity - Devin Townsend
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

7 Solway Firth - Slipknot

This album alone is the their best album since Iowa. The track list and musician ship is Insane.

8 Glass Houses - Children of Bodom

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

9 Rain of Fury - Rhapsody of Fire
10 No More Room in Hell - Possessed

Death metal pioneers Possessed have released their first studio album since 1986 (33 years) - Metal_Treasure

Lets make things clear okay
possessed's seven churches was thrash and don't argue please I know this stuff
the first death metal album is SCREAM BLOODY GORE

18 Cold - Korn
19 This Road - Children of Bodom
20 Fall into the Light - Dream Theater Fall into the Light - Dream Theater

Awesome Band and album!

21 Belly of the Beast - Diamond Head

With a great new singer - Rasmus Bom Andersen. I love how he slides up like he does on the sample. - Metal_Treasure

22 Eden - Battle Beast

This song is like a definition of painfully generic in metal (I didn't add it) - Metal_Treasure

23 Unsainted - Slipknot

This song is a masterpiece, and it's probably one of the most complete songs by slipknot.
It has both aggressive parts and a great melodic refrain. This one deserves the top five

Epic.

...and where's the metal in this song? LOL. The heavier part is core-based and not metal-based. In the softer part the combination of the notes is pop, pop rock at best. - Metal_Treasure

Pretty cool. I'll definitely give the album a listen. Don't know if it's going to be "Iowa levels of heavy" like Corey said, but so far it sound good. - RogerMcBaloney

49 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

50 Holy Ground - Within Temptation
