Best Metal Songs
The Contenders: Page 10
I actually skip this song. The chorus is forced melody. The album represents Iron Maiden's fine form beginning to wane in my opinion.V 1 Comment
Has such an addictive rhythm from the guitar, drums and vocals and the double bass during and after the solo is just orgasmic. - CrankyCroc
ANOTHER WARM UP SONG BY Metallica BLOODY FAST
Ian Gillan conquering the galaxy with his voice. Listen to the record from their album Live in Japan.
I prefer the album version. It is a song of such majesty that only Stargazer comes even remotely close.
Epic! Beast! Emotive! Adjectives?
It's metal, I can believe - zxm
When Holy Diver is ranked so high, it's strange to see the song that typically gets mentioned in the same discussion as the best Dio song so low on this list.
To be honest, I haven't even heard them. I was going with the flow, but you heard me out. The names? Needs to change if they want to make it.
This is the best Avenged Sevenfold song so far. It should definitely be higher.
Lol! You only needed to go to one of their early 80's shows and experience what a lesson in violence meant when 'A Lesson in Violence' was played.
Yeah, I have one of theirs but vinyl sucks. Too lazy to play it.
The best song by one of the most iconic death metal bands.
I have one of theirs, and the lead guitarist is very talented.
Very Good song, should be ranked a but higher...
Tool and Metallica are the greatest bands full stop. They just knew when to reign it in. He is so intelligent it is staggering. Metallica are entitled to do whatever they wish, so I defend them no matter what because I love them.
This is my current favorite song! My favorite song changes so much! But, in the end, it always seems to be a Tool song! Tool might be my favorite band, either that or System of a Down. - moose4life19
Prescient, no? You'd better learn to swim now, and leave your copy of 'Aenema' and 'Salival' at home, unless it proves useful in fighting off a Great White Shark once the glaciers melt.V 2 Comments
Words can't describe how good this song is. Though I'm surprised Afterlife isn't on here
Great effin song deserves top ten status. Lets all vote them in guys
I kept searching for an Avenged Sevenfold song and I'm very surprised to see it so low on the list! Should be much higher than 11!
This not only propelled them into mainstream status. It tells a very muscicly lyrically complex. Epic.V 50 Comments
