Top 10 Death Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Dead by Dawn - Deicide
22 Eaten - Bloodbath

Amazing simply amazing. Although quite possibly Melodic Death Metal is my favorite genre of metal alas it is not Death Metal so neither is COB. This hear Bloodbath is as death metal as it gets.

This song should be #1! When I am trying to listen to the hardest of the hard at work, this song always hits the peak in a mix of Nile, Necrophagist, Amon Amarth, and more. I love how the list has non death metal in it.

This is by far the best death metal song. I don't get why this list is full of other genres. In Flames and Cob? Not even close to death metal. Go listen to this more death metal is not possible.

I love Bloodbath but IF and CoB ARE death metal. Whatever you would say about it - TheoDR

The best song ever!

23 Maze of Torment - Morbid Angel
24 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

Thrash metal anthem! War Ensemble and this song SEEM to never be excluded from their live performances. - Matt3

25 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

26 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

27 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.

28 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

29 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

30 Symbolic - Death
31 Disembowel - Autopsy V 1 Comment
32 Eat What You Kill - Unleash the Archers
33 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

34 Gravitational Lensing - Solution .45

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

35 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

36 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.

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
