Best Songs That Metal Bands Began Their Career With

The Top Ten

1 Hit the Lights - Metallica
2 Evil Has No Boundaries - Slayer
3 Majesty - Blind Guardian

Majesty is still one of the best speed metal songs, if not the best. The chorus is one of the best, too. And after 30 years Blind Guardian are still one of the best metal bands, with an amazing album in 2015. Great career these guys. - Metal_Treasure

4 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath

Pretty much set the tone for their career with Ozzy - ryanrimmel

5 Black Star - Yngwie Malmsteen

Still one of the best metal instrumental pieces. Just mindblowing. - Metal_Treasure

6 Prowler - Iron Maiden
7 Last Rite/ Loved to Deth - Megadeth
8 Phantasmagoria - Annihilator

A song with killer riffs. It was their demo, even before their debut album. This song pretty much hepled them get a recording contract. It was included in their 2nd album.
Officially their first song on the debut album is actually Alison Hell, a technical thrash masterpiece. The debut album also has a very short acoutic intro piece - Crystal Ann, but I don't count it in the context of this list. - Metal_Treasure

9 Ride the Sky - Helloween

Awesome speed metal song. It's in my personal Top 3 best speed metal songs. - Metal_Treasure

10 Infernal Death - Death

Actually their first song was legion of doom back in their early demos
