Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 14

261 Spit It Out - Slipknot
262 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.

263 Battle Hymn - Manowar
264 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

265 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.

266 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!

267 Damage, Inc. - Metallica

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

268 The Exorcist - Possessed
269 A Light in the Black - Rainbow
270 Asylum - Disturbed
271 Twisted Transistor - Korn

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

272 Metal Az Esz - Pokolgep
273 Body Hammer - Fear Factory
274 Piece of Time - Atheist
275 Paschendale - Iron Maiden
276 This Calling - All that Remains

Place 'Fall of Ideals' in tray, select 'Random' and 'Repeat' and treat yourself to the best musicians on the planet playing their best album. 10/10 album.

277 The End of Heartache - Killswitch Engage

This song is amazing I can't believe it wasn't on the list until I put it on it definitely deserves to be in top 20 at least

This song is one of my favorites from Killswitch Engage. This deserves to be higher! - Pegasister12

One of their best albums, definitely.

Come in n guys - this is an amazing song!

278 Wolf and Raven - Sonata Arctica
279 Fast as a Shark - Accept

Now this classic is borderline speed metal, and Udo is a vocal talent.

280 When - Opeth
