Top 10 Death Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Laid to Rest - Lamb of God

LoG is awesome but they are groove metal with harsh vocals not death metal

This is perhaps one of the greatest metal songs in modern times, and it's a shame it sits so far back. The riffing, vocals, arrangement and pretty much everything else are just perfect. This is my favourite lamb of god song and one of my favourite songs of all time. Should at least be in the top 20 and even then, not doing it justice...

How can anyone hold back Lamb of God... Laid to Rest is one of there classy works and no way it stands below #20

Awesome song but not death metal

22 Arise - Sepultura

what the hell is "Feuer frei" doing here, that's freaking industrial metal!
"Arise" is one of the greatest death metal songs ever, I love this song from the beggining to the end... and it's in 22th place! - rock2metal

This is NOT death metal, LOL. It is thrash metal all the way. - Metal_Treasure

The speed and power of this song makes your blood pump. It should be in the top ten

This is thrash metal

23 Forever Gone - Desultory

Even if the band is pretty underrated, this song kicks ass hard. This is real death 'n' roll, sincerely half of the songs that are noted here ain't even death metal.

24 Slit Your Guts - Cryptopsy

The whole album is a Death Metal masterpiece too! This song should definitely be higher! The intro feels like a thousand souls are being shredded and Lord Worm's vocals are like a Satanic bellow over a symphony of instrumental mayhem... I rest my case.

Come on,20? It should be at least 8 - Ananya

This is heavy and brutal as hell. - Metal_Treasure

This and phobophile should be higher

25 Symbolic - Death
26 Disembowel - Autopsy V 1 Comment
27 Lashed to the Slave Stick - Nile

This song should be in the Top 10 for sure, can't understand these lists.

28 Eat What You Kill - Unleash the Archers
29 I C** Blood - Cannibal Corpse

Awesome song...don't mind the name - Ananya

"A Load Of My Lymph Will Quench This Bodies Thirst"
Awesome song
Not because it has some vulgarity in its name. But the song is totally awesome.
Awesome growls, awesome riffs

30 Gravitational Lensing - Solution .45

I'm so happy to see is here, it's so death metal and YES it's catchy - Ananya

31 Chapel of Ghouls - Morbid Angel

This song deserves to be on the top ten list because this track is a death metal classic from a prominent death metal album "Altars of Madness" and it depicts pure aggression and evil, which defines death metal.

Ahh Morbid Angel are so low what!...

Great vocals, drumming is pretty good and the solos are alright.
Nice riffs.

32 The Violation - Fleshgod Apocalypse

Classical music + Death metal? PERFECT!

This song is awesome. Drummer F. Paoli is sick! - Metal_Treasure

33 No Remorse - Cannibal Corpse

This is actually written by Metallica in their first album kill em all

This song is awesome! Should definitely be number one, without a doubt... This is also my favourite cannibal corpse song, hands down - metal666slut

What's a cover song doing here. There are so many brilliant CC songs other than HAMMER SMASHED FACE

34 Rapture - Morbid Angel
35 Abomination Reborn - Suffocation

All that is needed the said is awesome

36 Bloodrocuted - Dethklok
37 Zombie Ritual - Death

One of the catchiest songs ever! Unlike a lot of the songs on this list, this one actually deals with what death metal is all about: death, gore, graves and bloodshed. - joshapkin

Drifting from the living, joining with the dead! - love this song

My favourite song from Death!

First song of the first death metal album at 28! Blastphemy
