Top 10 Metal Songs to Use as a Ringtone

For ringtones I prefer songs with long instrumental sections, usually with riffs I love, but I keep in mind that it's a ringtone - I wouldn't put every song I like because some songs may disturb people around me.

The Top Ten

1 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth

This riff is amazing (it's on the song sample but I mean the same riff from the intro, with no vocals). - Metal_Treasure

2 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

With the bass intro of course. - Userguy44

3 Raining Blood - Slayer


4 And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope - Ne Obliviscaris

The intro is perfect for that - I would use the part you hear on the sample - Metal_Treasure

5 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

There are many great instrumental sections in this song to choose from. - Metal_Treasure

6 The Trooper - Iron Maiden

The intro riff sounds awesome. - Metal_Treasure

7 Alison Hell - Annihilator

The intro - it's long and has several awesome riffs. - Metal_Treasure

8 Ride the Lightning - Metallica
9 Peace Sells - Megadeth
10 Master of Puppets - Metallica

The Contenders

11 Enter Sandman - Metallica

I would go with the intro. - Metal_Treasure

12 Seek and Destroy - Metallica


13 I Am - Theocracy
14 Walk - Pantera

I actually knew a guy once who had "Walk" as his ringtone. It works really well. - Gg2000


15 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica

18 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

The intro works really well as a ringtone.

19 Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags - Amon Amarth

21 Highway Star - Deep Purple

Intro and maybe the solo - Metal_Treasure

22 I'm Broken - Pantera
