Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 13

241 Radio/Video - System of a Down
242 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.

243 Du Hast - Rammstein

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

244 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.


245 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.

246 Over the Hills and Far Away - Nightwish
247 Halloween - Helloween
248 The Sign of the Cross - Iron Maiden
249 Spit It Out - Slipknot
250 Overkill - Motorhead
251 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.

252 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.

253 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!

254 Damage, Inc. - Metallica

Great track! Where's 'Damage Control' though?

255 Cirice - Ghost V 1 Comment
256 The Exorcist - Possessed
257 A Light in the Black - Rainbow
258 Bleed - Meshuggah
259 Asylum - Disturbed
260 Twisted Transistor - Korn

Unbelievably great metal. For people that aren't into metal this might make you really piss yourself! - dean42
