Top 10 Very Fast Metal Songs with Clean Melodic Vocals

NO death, black and thrash metal here because:
- death and black metal vocals aren't clean
- thrash metal vocals aren't melodic, they are rough: thrash singers either spit the words or snarl because it's difficult to sing "normally" on such fast songs.

However, some singers are able to sing melodically even on very fast songs - songs that are sometimes faster than thrash songs.

Typical fast subgenres with Clean Melodic Vocals are: speed metal, power metal, traditional metal, heavy metal, folk metal, symphonic metal.

Speed metal - it's not every fast song from any metal subgenre. Speed metal is very close power metal and has specific features.

The Top Ten

1 The Trooper - Iron Maiden The Trooper - Iron Maiden Cover Art

I decided to put this song at #1. It's not the fastest song on this list, it's not even the fastest Iron Maiden song but I guess it was very influential. And it's awesome. - Metal_Treasure

Yeah it has a clean voice - zxm

2 Majesty - Blind Guardian Majesty - Blind Guardian Cover Art

It's very fast and it's 7:30 minutes long, with only 2 short sections that are slower (10 seconds each). Guitars, vocals and drums are very fast (the drummer was only 17 years old).
Chorus, riffs and solo are amazing. Hansi voice is so pleasantly aggressive and raw on this song. - Metal_Treasure

3 Aces High - Iron Maiden Aces High - Iron Maiden Cover Art

This is one of my most favorite Iron Maiden songs and I think it's kinda underrated among the Maiden songs. Great speed, energy, vocals... PS. When I made this list long ago, the song wasn't in the top 10 Best Iron Maiden Songs - Metal_Treasure

It used to be one of my favorites as well (I got a bit bored of it) but I don't think it's underrated: it is #4 on Best Iron Maiden Songs, and it has about 30 million views on YouTube. - Alkadikce

4 Shot to Hell - Laaz Rockit Shot to Hell - Laaz Rockit Cover Art

In the early 80s Metallica was an opening act for these guys. - Metal_Treasure
