Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 23

441 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian
442 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

443 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel
444 Until the World Goes Cold - Trivium

Beautiful song with heart touching vocals

445 They Rode On - Watain
446 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

One of the earliest heavy metal recordings - SomePersona

447 Chapter 13 - Gorefest
448 Gekkou - D'erlanger
449 Again - Alice in Chains

The definition of a "gritty song. "


450 M.I.A. - Avenged Sevenfold
451 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

452 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!

453 Awake - Textures

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

the song gives a perfect meaning

454 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.

455 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.

456 The Heretic Anthem - Slipknot


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

This song really needs to be higher.

458 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.
