Top 10 Very Fast Metal Songs with Clean Melodic VocalsNO 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
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
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
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
In the early 80s Metallica was an opening act for these guys. - Metal_Treasure
Metal Meltdown is faster - Alkadikce
No clean vocals in this - Userguy44
While it has some very fast sections, it's not extremely fast all the time - Metal_Treasure
The solo and drum fills are great. - Metal_Treasure
Katon sings normally even when Hirax is a Thrash Metal band - Fretto
Pretty fast for its time. - Userguy44
