Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Where the Sky Ends - Sylosis
162 Twilight of the Gods - Blind Guardian
163 Soil's Song - Katatonia

Beast of a depressing nightmare of an album. I prefer 'July' but 'Soils Song' is incredible.

164 Waking the Demon - Bullet for My Valentine

a nice song from a talented thrash metal band.

2 of these guys are stupid. This is not thrash. Ass

Of course they're thrash, and this song, along with a number of others on the album, are classy thrash songs.

If you regard Trivium as thrash then why would you not regard Bullet For My Valentine's paciest album as thrash? Ok, they're a polka band that play only at weddings.

165 Future Breed Machine - Meshuggah
166 Dystopia - Megadeth
167 Gutter Ballet - Savatage
168 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

I can't believe this wasn't on the list - christangrant

169 Infected - Antim Grahan
170 Guardians of Asgaard - Amon Amarth

Any Death/Heavy metal fan knows of Amon Amarth, while it may not be the best Metal song, it's one of the best Death Metal songs.

Yeah, I hadn't heard of them. I'm in Oz.

171 Call Me When Your Sober - Evanescence
172 The Pride - Five Finger Death Punch
173 Last Resort - Papa Roach

Oh, come on! Bereft of Nuclear Assault, Anthrax, My Dying Bride and Opeth (The Moor #1), Papa Roach has no place here.

174 Unas Slayer of the Gods - Nile V 1 Comment
175 Cry of a Restless Soul - Lost Horizon
176 Highway Star - Deep Purple

This is one of Deep Purples greatest songs, Listen to its guitar solo, its sweet

One of the first metal songs. And speed metal was born. - Metal_Treasure

177 Damned for All Time - Corrosion of Conformity

I'll vote for this white noise with a bullet. CoC going toe-to-toe with Hetfield and co.

178 Desecration of Souls - Mercyful Fate

I do, and as a desecration to Mercyful Fate, I think the album Melissa is even better - but I have noticed this odd 666 marking under my hair.

It is a desecration of souls to not own 'Desecration of Souls'.

The Album where is this song is so so so GOOD.
"Don't Break The Oath" : A must have in your discography!

179 Powerslave - Iron Maiden

Listen to all of the instruments, vocals, guitar, solos and riffs, bass and drums. This is a true masterpiece that should be in the top 5.

Not enough content on it. The duelists etc. Nicko is too loose, and the production isn't great.

Brilliant when they play this on a tour and at a concert

From Iron Maiden's last truly great album, the title-track is fantastic.

180 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Definitely one of the best songs in the entire rock industry, not just metal. Should be top 3 AT LEAST.

Great mighty solo by marty friedman

143. What. Best solo in all of Metal.


And yet it's down here while enter Sandman is up there?
