Top 10 Non-Extreme Metal Songs with the Best Drum Intros


The Top Ten

1 Painkiller - Judas Priest Painkiller - Judas Priest
2 Detonation - Annihilator Detonation - Annihilator

Awesome and long drum intro by Mike Mangini - about 17 seconds - Metal_Treasure

3 Stargazer - Rainbow Stargazer - Rainbow

Great intro, about 10 seconds long (by Cozy Powel) - Metal_Treasure

4 Bushpig - Anvil

It's fast, wild and long (about 30 seconds long) - Metal_Treasure

5 Fireball - Deep Purple

It's about 10 seconds long. Most importantly, Ian Paice used double bass drum in 1971! He used it to get speed. What he did was to put two single bass drums in front of him. Double bass drumming in 1971 wasn't like it is today. - Metal_Treasure

6 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

Every metal fan knows this one - it's about 8 seconds long but it isn't very fast - Metal_Treasure

7 Honor Thy Father - Dream Theater

Very good intro but very short - only 3 seconds (the reason I can't put it higher) - Metal_Treasure

8 Where the Rain Grows - Helloween

About 10 seconds long - Metal_Treasure

9 Sign of the Warrior - Skull Fist

Pretty fast and energetic, about 6 seconds long - Metal_Treasure

10 Ghost Division - Sabaton

It's short and simple but works - Metal_Treasure
