Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Scourge of Iron - Cannibal Corpse

The best and heaviest riff in death metal history. The part after 3.42 just makes you rage and destroy everything in your area

422 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel
423 Chapter 13 - Gorefest
424 Gekkou - D'erlanger
425 Again - Alice in Chains

The definition of a "gritty song. "


426 M.I.A. - Avenged Sevenfold
427 Rose of Sharyn - Killswitch Engage

Killswitch aren't popular. Where I live they are very popular - and deservedly so - so I guess you have it good in the US, but your health care system sucks. Lol.

not a popular band, but the song lyrics sounds amazing

428 Frantic Disembowelment - Cannibal Corpse

extreme lyrics, extreme growling make this song into a deadly one

Fair enough. Each to their own.

I prefer my disembowelments to be less frantic and tick, tick, tick, tock, Unfrantic!

429 Awake - Textures

I have heard of them, heard there good. So I'll try them.

the song gives a perfect meaning

430 The Red & the Black - Blue Oyster Cult

Brute force, frenetic energy, supple instrumental virtuosity, great intensity and urgency from this metal classic from BOC's 1973 yranny & Mutation LP. -

You know it all my man. I thought I lived metal but I may have overrated myself. Lol.

431 Backbone - Gojira

dis is the best metal song how can y'all not like dis its beast -

I think that was the Nailbomb collaboration with Cavalera. Dunno.

432 The Heretic Anthem - Slipknot


433 I Wanna Be Somebody - W.A.S.P.

This song really needs to be higher.

434 The Sentinel - Judas Priest

Great 2nd best song by priest rob really sings good in this and has a great intro and solo I think it's so underrated on this list it shouldn't be at 239 it should be in the top ten

Yeah, I was more Maiden than Priest. Priest didn't tour here I think. Maiden tour everywhere.

Great lyrics. Still love to listen to this song. - Gulf5

If you haven't listened, you don't know. Best metal song ever. Go check it out.

435 Neue Regel - Queensryche

Way ahead of its time when the album " Rage for Order" came out in 1986. The whole album is a masterpiece, no deficits.
Oh well, Geoff Tate's voice - either love it or hate it, there's nothing in between. - Gulf5

The greatest metal band of all time, with the greatest singer of all time. A true masterpiece. Geoff Tate can sing like nobodies' business. Personally though, I like Eyes of a Stranger more.

I could not agree more. Rage For Order as a whole owns Operation Mindcrime - if that is even possible, which it is. So much more progressive than their recognised masterpiece.

Yeah, I'm a big fan. Lost interest after Promised Land when that great guitarist left.

436 Satellite 15....The Final Frontier - Iron Maiden
437 Ruin - Lamb of God
438 Needled 24/7 - Children of Bodom
439 Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin
440 The Last Fight - Bullet For My Valentine

Yep! One of the best from 'Fever'. 'There's no silver-lining on the cloud that follows you, let it pour and soak you through'. Beautiful, emotive, talented, and aggressive
