Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 12

221 South of Heaven - Slayer

Yes, it's the Slayer I fell in love with. It's progressive, technical, lyrically profound, and haunting. I miss their atmospherics of their later output.

Helluva song! A classic to say the least.

222 Soldierhead - Newsted
223 For the Greater Good of God - Iron Maiden
224 Wherever I May Roam - Metallica
225 Snuff - Slipknot
226 The Aftermath - Origin
227 Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC

Big gals need lovin' too, and Bon gave them some.

228 The Sun is My Destroyer - Exodus
229 The Ministry of Lost Souls - Dream Theater
230 Thunder Kiss '65 - White Zombie

WHERE IS WHITE ZOMBIE ON THIS LIST? SHAME ON YOU ALL, this is real groove-metal not that Pantera bullcrap

231 Blacken the Cursed Sun - Lamb of God
232 L'enfant Sauvage - Gojira
233 Telos - Between the Buried and Me
234 The Philosopher - Death

This song has one of the most complex and amazing guitar solo...
It's full of awesomeness... Why the hell this song's in such a loe position

235 Hardwired - Metallica
236 The Thing that Should Not Be - Master of Puppets
237 Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard

I would never pour some sugar on definitely Leppard's vocalist, no matter how much he payed me. Lita Ford on the other hand...

I think they're melodic Hard Rock.
