Top 10 Metal Songs to Use as a Ringtone

Metal_Treasure
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 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

With the bass intro of course. - Userguy44
