Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Prison Song - System of a Down

Crushing opener to Toxicity. I thought it was damn Fear Factory all over again.

422 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

Umm cough cough. Breaking Benjamin is considered metal. You can cast your votes now for one of the most music filled, melodic, aggressive, kick ass band of all times to come.

423 Flying Whales - Gojira

The amazing intro, the heavy riffs and the beautiful lyrics turn this song into one of the best metal songs of the 21. century.


424 White Walls - Between the Buried and Me

This song sums up an album that was nearly flawless, and it does so with heavy, brutal and stunning riffs. One of my favorite songs ever and in my opinion the best metal song ever.

One of the best modern metal bands, full stop.

425 Midnight Mover - Accept
426 Roots Bloody Roots - Sepultura

This song is awesome! No other song makes me wanna bang my head as much as this one does - ryanrimmel

Sepultura needs more awareness in America.

427 Unleashing the Bloodthirsty - Cannibal Corpse

Easily there best

428 Skulls... We Are 138 - Trivium

It's not a Trivium song but a Danzig cover, but Trivium are in my view the modern day Metallica, and this Last Caress/Green Hell style belter is a bonus track on their ecxellent Vengeance Falls album.

Folk Metal, Power Metal and Ballad combined to unleash its potential!
