Top 10 Metal Songs with the Best Outros

The Top Ten

1 Floods - Pantera

You Can Loop This Intro And It Will Never Get Old - christangrant

2 Raining Blood - Slayer
3 Fade to Black - Metallica
4 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth
5 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
6 Painkiller - Judas Priest
7 All Within My Hands - Metallica
8 Wake Up Dead - Megadeth
9 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
10 Heaven Denies - Demons & Wizards

It's not a guitar outro, it's something different. Give a listen to what Hansi Kursch did vocally here - his Gregorian chanting is amazing (4:15). Knowing his heavier songs, you won't believe he has such an angelic voice, too. He did all vocal harmonies, no other singers. Pure eargasm. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Haunted - Annihilator

This one is damn good - Mike Mangini and Jeff Waters at their best (6:50-8:00). - Metal_Treasure

12 Symptom of the Universe - Black Sabbath
13 Perennial Quest - Death


14 Deliverance - Opeth

This list is a joke. Deliverance easily beats anything on this list. The drumming is too good here.

15 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian

This outro isn't standard at all but these are two perfect minutes from the masters of modern epicness. - Metal_Treasure

16 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian
17 Octavarium - Dream Theater
18 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
19 A Light in the Black - Rainbow

Just epic! - Metal_Treasure

20 Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards
21 Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple

It's not the expected typical guitar outro - this is a different idea and I like it. Music sounds impressive. One of the best Purple songs. - Metal_Treasure

22 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio
23 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold
24 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold
25 Count of Tuscany - Dream Theater

From the "now wait a minute man! " line onwards, this song has some of the best rock/metal songwriting ever.

Magical - Kilopoppy

26 Parabola - Tool
27 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
28 Child in Time - Deep Purple
29 Damien - Iced Earth

This outro is pretty unusual - whispered lines backed by Gregorian chanting in the background. But if you wanna hear the true message, you have to play the song backwards. Amazing song, even without the outro. - Metal_Treasure

30 Crimson King - Demons & Wizards

I absolutely love this outro. - Metal_Treasure

31 Song of Myself - Nightwish

I don't know how they managed to write such a beautiful and meaningful outro. It's one of Nightwish's most brilliant songs in my opinion, definitely worth the listen despite how long it is. - LostDream258

32 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Classic! - ParasN2000
