Top 10 Metal Songs to Use as a Ringtone

For ringtones I prefer songs with long instrumental sections, usually with riffs I love, but I keep in mind that it's a ringtone - I wouldn't put every song I like because some songs may disturb people around me.
The Top Ten
1 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth Cover Art

This riff is amazing (it's on the song sample but I mean the same riff from the intro, with no vocals).

2 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica Cover Art

With the bass intro of course.

3 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer Cover Art

good

4 And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope - Ne Obliviscaris And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope - Ne Obliviscaris Cover Art

The intro is perfect for that - I would use the part you hear on the sample

Plenty to choose from

5 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian Cover Art

There are many great instrumental sections in this song to choose from.

6 The Trooper - Iron Maiden The Trooper - Iron Maiden Cover Art

The intro riff sounds awesome.

7 Alison Hell - Annihilator Alison Hell - Annihilator Cover Art

I would go with the intro.

13 The Day that Never Comes - Metallica The Day that Never Comes - Metallica Cover Art
14 I Am - Theocracy I Am - Theocracy Cover Art
15 Walk - Pantera Walk - Pantera Cover Art

I actually knew a guy once who had "Walk" as his ringtone. It works really well.

16 Septuagint - Obscura Septuagint - Obscura Cover Art

24 Vain Glory Opera - Edguy Vain Glory Opera - Edguy Cover Art

The keyboards intro is pretty cool and fitting

25 Coat of Arms - Sabaton Coat of Arms - Sabaton Cover Art

The opening synth is nice and mellow which means you don't really hear it until the guitars kick in and no-one in the room expects it.
