The Top Ten

1 L’enfant Sauvage - Gojira

The most successful metal band from France with a song of 2012 (only the title is in French, lyrics are in English) - Metal_Treasure

2 Sous la lueur de l'empereur - Beyond Creation

Progressive /technical death metal from Montreal, Canada ( 2014). A song with awesome fretless bass. - Metal_Treasure

3 Deja Vu - Iron Maiden
4 Là où Nous Allons - Forteresse

A black metal song from the province of Quebec, Canada, released in 2016.
I have to admit something: while I like their music, I don't share their Quebec Separatism and Nationalism that can be found in some of the lyrics. - Metal_Treasure

5 Les Forges - Gris

Atmospheric black metal from Quebec, Canada - it's over 15 minutes long (came out in 2013).
There are several black metal songs from Quebec on this list because black metal (along with folk metal) is one of the metal subgenres where not singing in English is perceived as interesting, at least OK. - Metal_Treasure

6 L'Appel de la nuit - Monarque

A black metal song from Quebec - Metal_Treasure

7 Sortilège - Sortilège

Sortilège were a French heavy metal band of the 80s. They were obviously influenced by Iron Maiden.
Sortilège is a song from their EP of 1983. - Metal_Treasure

8 A Tout Le Monde - Megadeth

The title and the chorus are in French but most of the song is in English.
I know that this song is probably the most popular song on this list but I like some other songs better. Dave vocals really give me a hard time in this ballad (he just wasn't born to sing ballads). - Metal_Treasure

9 Le Detenteur - Beyond Creation
10 Une Épitaphe de Suie - Gris

It's over 13 minutes long (off of their 2013 album À L'âme Enflammée, L'âme Constellée...) - Metal_Treasure
