Metal Songs With The Best Drum Intros
The Top Ten
The drums make this song even more epic than it already is.
Let's get this classic up on the top 10
Should be number 1
Most popular doesn't always mean the best. Compare this intro (now #1) with 'Haunted' by Annihilator (now #17) and you will feel the difference between the most popular and the best.
Such a widely popular drum intro.
My favorite drum track from Slipknot and one of the fastest I know
How can legendary song like this be this low?
This should be number one. It's Cozy Powell, I mean Cozy Fking Powell
Cozy Powell was a god
Timeless classic.R.I.P. Cozy Powel.
Based on this, Ov Fire, and Dead Memories being here, I can conclude that I don't think some of you know what drum intros are.
This isn't anything special. Just a bunch of snare hits. Same with No More Sorrow.
Everything about this intro is epic. One of my favorite drum parts from The Rev.
Jimmy made this so amazing, it's absolutely beautiful!
I can listen to that intro over and over again
The best song ever. go a7x...
My favorite Dream Theater song. And Mike Portnoy's epic drumming is the reason that it's my favorite.
Should be one. It is like Mike Portnoy is an octopus.
Technical yet masterpiece
Mike Mangini - top notch metal drumming. Just an awesome intro!
I love this song's drumming more than every other song's drumming.
The best and longest drum intro I've ever heard - 50 seconds of tight flawless drumming.
Mike Mangini is one of a kind drummer. Thumbs up! You can hear a section of the intro from the sample below.
Mike Mango is a boring drummer. I wished, Portnoy was still there with the band.
I wish Mike Portnoy stayed in Avenged Sevenfold. No offense to Arin Ilejay, but Mike is utterly amazing.
Once again, Mike Portnoy dominates the drums.
Seriously a very technical intro courtesy of Tim Yeung.
