241 Wings of a Butterfly - Him
242 Inis Mona - Eluveitie

Great song and great band, they are really cool metal band!
I really love them! Inis mona is one of my favorite songs by them, and I think Slania is their best album!

243 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

WHAT?! One of Metallica's best songs is nowhere to be seen?! This is utter madness, to see a song with the best tune - one of the best choruses and and ending that makes it a metal masterpiece - to be languishing down. Need to bring it up, and bring it up fast, or the metal gods will not be pleased.

Die-hard Metallica fan here admitting that it's far from their best. Metallica taught me honesty is my only excuse.

It's not their best. It's a solid album.

244 Radio/Video - System of a Down
245 Sugar - System of a Down

I agree. Their debut and Toxicity were gold, but became a bit hit and miss after that. Each to their own.

Possibly there best song, recorded in 1998 and still popular now.

I like the ballad Spiders is it? I like them.

246 Du Hast - Rammstein

One of the best new German hardness songs ever and one of the best 90's metal songs

247 Am I Evil? - Diamond Head

So underrated! How can't this song be in the top ten? Without Diamond Head there ain't no Megadeth or Metallica, there simply ain't no Thrash!

Don't worry. James and Lars openly tip their lid to Diamond Head. They couldn't have payed more homage to them if they tried - which they did.

Yay! Pass this on to James and co. As a reminder.


248 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage

Real metal band here should be high in list

A great song - amazing riff, solo, vox. - Metal_Treasure

Have on on vinyl. Too lazy.

249 Over the Hills and Far Away - Nightwish
250 Overkill - Motorhead
251 Cirice - Ghost V 1 Comment
252 Bleed - Meshuggah
253 Halloween - Helloween
254 The Sign of the Cross - Iron Maiden
255 Spit It Out - Slipknot
256 Pure Evil - Iced Earth

Yeah, I have a lot of their stuff. There's a couple of great live dvd's if you like them. One with Owens, 2 with Barlow. The track of the opener Horror Show is staggering. It's definitely their best album.

Great song with epic intro, great vocals, and great guitar riff. One of my favorite songs next to Hallowed Be Thy Name. I can't believe this isn't in at least the top 25.

257 Battle Hymn - Manowar
258 Touch of Evil - Judas Priest

Needs to be a lot higher it's one of the best Judas Priest songs ever

This song is one of priests finest and one of the best of heavy metal too it's got to be in the top 10 at least great riff, solo, vocals, drums and the synthesyzer to tie it all together

259 Twilight of the Thunder God - Amon Amarth

This may not be my favorite metal song ever, but I'm voting for it because it deserves to be in the top 20 at least. Everything about this song is epic, the riff is amazing and far superior to even most of Metallica's songs. The subject and lyrics of this song is simply superior to all the mainstream metal (even Iron Maiden). The guitar work is pretty much the definition of metal, everything about this song is epic and it's about ten times better then Master Of Puppets.

This song have to be in the first page at least.

I'll note the bands you've mentioned and YouTube them.

260 Flesh and the Power It Holds - Death

This song is my personal favourite metal song. It is an amazing progressive death metal opus by the late Chuck Schuldiner. I like all the songs present in the top ten, but they are simple compared to the complex level Death reached on their last album. Touch...taste...breathe...consumed!
