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 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.

23 Symbolic - Death
24 Disembowel - Autopsy V 1 Comment
25 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

26 Angel of Death - Slayer

This is called thrash metal

He/she did this to comment, in old days you had to vote to comment. - GREYBOYY

Awesome song (in fact, it may very well be the best song ever written), but this definitely isn't death metal. It would have won my vote for best thrash metal song, though.

I agree, but this is the band that basically influenced the whole genre

We are talking about death metal not thrash.ok slayer is god of thrash but this is something else.and undoubtedly Death is founder and greatest band in death metal

Best song by Slayer

27 Kafir! - Nile

Why is this masterpiece at #27? Come on guys, you aren't serious...Top 10 easily - Metal_Treasure

28 Voice of the Soul - Death
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 Make Them Suffer - Cannibal Corpse

Death may be the first death metal band. But Cannibal Corpse have taken the sub-genre into new boundaries. And it's a great death metal song. I have never listened to death. But after listening to Cannibal Corpse I can say, Death Metal could never be better than that. And in my opinion, this deserves a way higher position above many non death metal songs. And yes, I like Make Them Suffer more than Hammer Smashed Face.

If you talking about death metal, cannibal corpse is the best...

You know what make them suffer is a million times better than hammer smashed face

32 The Violation - Fleshgod Apocalypse

Classical music + Death metal? PERFECT!

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

33 Rapture - Morbid Angel
34 Abomination Reborn - Suffocation

All that is needed the said is awesome

35 Bloodrocuted - Dethklok
36 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
