Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 17

321 Holy Diver - Killswitch Engage

They sing it better than Dio? Dio was one of the greatest, most influential vocalists of all time. The only time anyone sings his songs better than him is when he passes on, which he did.

Love the song but KSE sing it better then Dio

322 Armageddon It - Def Leppard

Yes I'm gettin' it, best DL song ever! But this is not metal, its hard rock

Over here they are a bit hard to define. They're not metal, maybe melodic hard rock? Dunno.

323 A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
324 Metaphor - In Flames

This song is closer to a country song than a metal song

326 War - Burzum

Varg is a genius

Don't they burn churches and stuff like that? Who was it that murdered someone? Was it Burzum? It's very distant here, but I'm aware of something. Dunno.

327 Epic - Faith No More

Even the mightiest of the mighty, James Hetfield, regards Faith No More in the highest regard, as do I.

328 XXX For You - D'erlanger

this song rocks hard and art of life even if its hard and soft it is still a ballad - ronluna

329 Sulfur - Slipknot

Good song with cool lyrics, represents slipknot really well and is just a really good song. "there's something inside me that feels like breathing in sulfur"

I played along with you, don't like the masks, don't like the first two, but like the last 3. I like their music, just not the gimmicry. It's very immature here to have guys in their 40's like that. It is a broken that Durst does have. But I don't think anyone should be hated universally for making mistakes.

Slipknot bringing it intelligent style. I love bands that evolve, and Slipknot did.

330 Sonne - Rammstein

Such a beautiful song with an awesome video!

Yeah, I have their live box set called something or other, and it's heavy, and unusually popular considering what they do.

331 Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin

Great song, great bass work n solos. This band should get international recognation. Great talent. Just listen n you understand what aurthohin is.

332 Dance of Death - Riot
333 Octavarium - Dream Theater

I don't care that this song is #461, it should be first. Just think of the level of diversity in the peace. Not only did they have there band, but a full, symphonic orchestra. The length of the piece allowed them to interweave from one idea to the next. This is similar to flowing from movement to movement in a classical piece of music. And that doesn't make the piece lame, it just shows how much thought has gone into the structure of the piece. Then you have the overall idea of the piece, expressed through the eerie lyrics and melody. Then, being as humanly progressive as possible, they take their beautiful melody and make uncountable variations on it (this is what allows the piece to move from one idea to the next). Humans naturally enjoy listening to things when we already know how they go. So the listener gets this effect, while, at the same time, what they know is slightly different, which keeps the viewer guessing, and on there toes. Dream Theater took this idea and stretched it ...more

This song changed my life. This song is what got me into Dream Theater. This song is beautiful. It might be 24 minutes long, but it is worth listening to.

Ok. Shall do. I'll 5-weeks vacation to do it. Lol.

334 Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine

This opener from Fever made me call up my Spinal Tap 7.2 surround sound technicians and have the volume button turned up to 12 instead of 11. Gracias.

335 The Phantom Opera Ghost - Iced Earth

Incredible song...down here at #326. Think of all the junk listed above. There are about 15 songs on this list so far that are even close to this.

336 Moth Into Flame - Metallica

Why is this so low? It's better than master of puppets!

337 Double Talkin' Jive - Guns N Roses
338 Revolution is My Name - Pantera

THIS IS A GREAT SONG! - heavymetalrocker777

339 Washington is Next! - Megadeth
340 Trigger - Motorhead
