The Top Ten

1 Octavarium - Dream Theater

24 Minutes of pure perfection one of the greatest Metal songs ever - christangrant

This song here is no question. - cjWriter1997

2 Enemy of God - Kreator

This song is really really good. I'm really starting to like Kreator now. - cjWriter1997

I would agree with Metal_Treasure in my opinion they are better than both Anthrax and Megadeth They come close to beating Slayer - christangrant

3 Flying Whales - Gojira

This is definitely one of their best songs. - cjWriter1997

4 Welcome Home - Coheed and Cambria

Classic C&C. This song is epic. - cjWriter1997

5 Ghost of Perdition - Opeth
6 Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile
7 Arriving Somewhere but Not Here - Porcupine Tree
8 Cast Down the Heretic - Nile

Probably the song with the best clean vocals on this list - great tone and switching. How does Hansi get this perfect smooth voice that sounds like running spring water? - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Love? - Strapping Young Lad
12 The Grand Conjuration - Opeth
13 Witches - Candlemass
14 Panic Attack - Dream Theater
15 All for One - Primal Fear

I love everything about this song - the riffs, guitar solo, vocals, drumming (esp. drum solo at 3:55-4:30).
The song sample is a bit misleading - it plays the slow intro but the song is actually faster. - Metal_Treasure
