Top 10 Death Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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

42 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

43 Crime Divine - Dismember
44 Shadowfear - Vader

This song is incredible and deserves to be higher than #229... - Metal_Treasure

45 Song of the Damned - Soilwork

Should be in top 10

46 Effigy of the Forgotten - Suffocation
47 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.

This list is messed up. This song should at least be number 5, what's it doing way down here? Just try to listen to the opening riff without headbanging.

Ahh Morbid Angel are so low what!...

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

48 Immortal Rites - Morbid Angel

Come on man this is MORBID ANGEL immortal rites one of THE best death metal tracks if not the best

This should be in the top10 or top5

Amazing track

49 Morphogenesis - Scar Symmetry
50 Laser Cannon Deth Sentence - Dethklok

Even If it's not a serious Death Metal band, it's stil one of the best

51 Painkiller - Death
52 Infected - Obituary

Pure death metal at its finest.

53 Service for a Vacant Coffin - Autopsy
54 Scars of the Crucifix - Deicide

My personal favourite Death Metal song. Deicide are EASILY one of the greatest Death Metal artists about. They helped shape what it's about whilst never trying to copy anyone (not even copying Cannibal Corpse who helped make Death Metal what it is today! ). So, this has to be close as it's simple DEATH METAL!

This epic song makes my brain hurt after head banging against a wall, then you have to head butt the next christian you see!

This Riff Is Probably Written By Chuck Norris

This song is my definition of death metal!

55 Bloodlines - Dethklok
56 Beneath a Dying Sun - Fleshcrawl
57 The Face - The Last Ten Seconds of Life
58 Visions from the Dark Side - Morbid Angel
59 Take This Life - In Flames

Amazing song that got me into death metal.
The only reason Remstien is first is cause all the death metal fans are split but metal fanss see rammstien and vote for it. The real winner so far is only the weak but this song tops it in my opinion this and we will rise

EPIC song. feuer frei isn't even death metal. And no remorse is a metellica song. The cannibal remix dosn't even deserve to be on here. - killerkiwi23

I'm disappointed... Where were the dark tranquility fans in the midst of this list?

It's the best melodeathsong ever made I love it how it switches between anders clean vocals and brutal shout-scream-growls

60 Spheres of Madness - Decapitated

They didn't get very far before their drummer died, but this song, and this band are brilliant. Some of the heaviest and darkest music iv'e ever heard

My first death metal song, so I'm mainly voting it for nostalgic purpose haha

I saw this live before a meshuggah concert and.. WO amazing stuff

Really heavy one! I love the riffs!
