Top 10 Metal Songs with the Most Underrated Drum IntrosMetal_Treasure Metal drum intros that are usually mentioned include:
1) Painkiller - Judas Priest, Honor Thy Father - Dream Theater, Indians - Anthrax, Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden, Show No Mercy - Slayer.
2) many intros by non-metal bands people think are metal, such as Tool, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Nine Inch Nails, Breaking Benjamin, and more.
What I wanna say is that many metal intros are actually underrated.
The Top Ten
A drum intro by Mike Mangini that is about 17 seconds long - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
Despite the rest of the song being an absolute masterpiece, it's really the first minute that makes it so perfect to me - kempokid
This drum intro is different, memorable and long (1 min) but it's more known than
Detonation by Annihilator. - Metal_Treasure
It's really long (about 30 secs).
It's underrated because many metal fans hate the Black Album and refuse to appreciate anything on it. Besides, Lars got criticized a lot - another reason to deny his drum intro is cool. - Metal_Treasure
I never listened to this song. - PhoenixAura81
The drumming is as anthemic as it is raw and energetic. It also shows some good display of Lars's drumming. - CrimsonSharkUListen to Sample
It's about 10 secs long - while less known it's not the most underrated - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
Probably the longest drum intro on this list (1 min long, of which 20 secs are "clean" drums). But it's less underrated than the songs I put higher. Also, Megadeth songs aren't underrated in general. - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
It's fast and raw, and it's 30 secs long (but I didn't put it higher because the song might be on the borderline between metal and hard rock; drum intro is very cool though) - Metal_TreasureUListen to Sample
Gotta love Dailor's iconic snare roll - cjWriter1997UListen to Sample
