Best Metal Songs Written About Killers/Murders

A lot of good metal songs have lyrical content centered around infamous serial killers and well known murder cases.

The Top Ten

1 Angel of Death - Slayer

One of Slayer's signature songs written about the infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele who, in return for his twisted experiments that often ended up with his victims dying, was given that nickname - The Angel of Death. Heavy song with an interesting lyrical subject. - MetalFoREVer1228

2 Contempt Breeds Contamination - Trivium

A very underrated Trivium song about the murder of Amadou Diallo by 4 NYPD officers. - MetalFoREVer1228

3 Dead Skin Mask - Slayer

The awfully eerie masterpiece written about the serial killer Ed Gein. The parts at the end of the song with the child's voice I'm the background are, to say the least, haunting. - MetalFoREVer1228

4 213 - Slayer

Another eerie work, this time about everyone's favorite pervert - Jeffrey Dahmer. - MetalFoREVer1228

5 The Somatic Defilement - Whitechapel

The whole album was about Jack the Ripper, but this was my personal favorite. - MetalFoREVer1228

6 Entrance of the Conflagration - Trivium

A great song about Andrea Yates' murder of her own children by drowning them in a bathtub. - MetalFoREVer1228

7 Vicer Exciser - Whitechapel

Another brutal song about Jack The Ripper. - MetalFoREVer1228
