Greatest Thrash Metal Opening TracksMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
"Raining Blood" is overrated. It's a great closing track, that's for sure, but I prefer Angel of Death. Also, the track pays so much allusion to Death Metal, with that heavy shredding from beginning to end, the vocals and the lyrical theme displayed (The Holocaust in a more graphical depiction).
Also, "Hell Awaits" deserves a mention. That opening is something. I like the opening of "Hell Awaits" more, although "Angel of Death" is the better song overall. - CrimsonShark
This is honestly Metallica's best intro song. "Battery" and "Enter Sandman" are overrated (Still great though) and "Hit the Lights", "Fight Fire With Fire" "That Was Just Your Life" and "Hardwired" deserve mentions as well.
I love how "Blackened" starts out and it has some of the best and most unique lyrics Metallica has written, about the destruction of Mother Nature and eventually Earth. It's also kind of a protest song when you think about it and there are some allusions to the band Nuclear Assault alongside. - CrimsonShark
Metallica's most underrated intro track. While others praise "The Day That Never Comes" and "All Nightmare Long" as Death Magnetic's highlights, there's this underrated gem that's sadly never discussed as much. It's a return to format in Thrash Metal and the lyrics are great too. - CrimsonShark
