Top Ten Most Violent Metal Songs

Just a few minutes ago, I submitted a list of the 10 Goriest Metal Album Covers. Because what's death metal without a ridiculous, nearly-comical amount of the insides of human beings? Here's a list of something a little more specific: the most violent metal songs. I won't limit this to death metal - but I will hold nothing back. I'll even write in a little snippet of the lyrics. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED. If you're offended by violence, just don't look at this list. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. To all the gore fanatics - enjoy!

The Top Ten

1 Cannibal Corpse - Hammer Smashed Face

Bleed should also be here


"Draining the snot, I rip out the eyes / Squeezing them in my hands as the nerves are incised / Peeling your flesh off the bottom of my weapon / Involuntarily pulpifying facial regions." - ThatStrangeKid42

I am listening to that song right now. not enough violence

2 Mayhem - Chainsaw Gutsf**k


I cannibal corpse should be taken off the list.

there is Deathcrush by mayhem and chainsawguts. cannibal corpse is fantasy, mayhem does what they sing about. Clownable Corp.

Demonic laughter

Your cremation

Your lungs gasp for air

But are filled with blood

A sudden crack as I crush your skull

A reminder of your life flashes by

A life that soon won't be

Smiling with the axe in my hand

Evil's rotten hand you'll see

I come forward


I'll send you to your maker

I'll send you to your death

Death, nicely crucified

Death, heads on stakes

The barbecue has just begun




Deathcrush - Morbid_Deth

True kvlt black metal! Along with Mayhem's other song, "Deathcrush"

Good bass line, excellent vocals, sound absolutely beautiful. violent lyrics. nothing beats black metal, because it is serious about its lyrics. even cannibal corpse said their songs were fictitious jokes - Morbid_Deth

3 Korn - Daddy

Kinda rate to have a raw emotion portrayed in a song and have it evoke such emotion.

"You've raped, I feel dirty / It hurt as a child / Tied down, that's a good boy / And f***** your own child." - ThatStrangeKid42

The only song no one could make a cover of, as it is way too private and personnal to Johnathan Davis.

4 Cattle Decapitation - Forced Gender Reassignment

"As for your new husband / We had to perform a hysterectomy / But we managed to save your penis / And stapled it to her pubis." - ThatStrangeKid42

Probably the most brutal song I have EVER heard.. Even the music video is brutal.

The Video though - Ethansics

Such ketchup m/

5 Slayer - Angel Of Death

Favorite band and favorite song

"Pumping fluid inside your brain / Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes / Burning flesh drips away / Tests of heat burns your skin / Your mind starts to boil." - ThatStrangeKid42

I would have voted for DWTS because I love Disturbed, but Angel of Death is one of the most violent songs I've heard.

6 Aborted - Nailed Through Her C**t

"Feel the steel engrain, enjoy the skewering pain / Anal crucifixion, hammering / Suffer in humility, piercing to the vaginal cavity / Sanguinary feces, nailing." - ThatStrangeKid42

7 Infant Annihilator - Torn From The Womb

Death brings me joy but I would rather see her suffer

Yes, I'd fund it

"I grab the child by his leg and rip him from the womb / His mother's entrails pour out and spread upon the bed / I rape her body 'til she turns into a putrid heap / Then I remove the umbilical cord." - ThatStrangeKid42

8 Cannibal Corpse - Entrails Ripped from a Virgin's C***
9 Slipknot - Disasterpiece

Opening lyrics:
I want to slit your throat and f*** the wound/ I want to press my face in and feel the swoon
Well... this definitely deserves its place. - ThatoneMetalhead

10 Disturbed - Down With the Sickness

"Would you like to see how it feels mommy? Here it comes get ready to DIIIE! " enough said

The Newcomers

? Black Dwarf - Candlemass

Hey cool, I think I was the only one

The Contenders

11 Whitechapel - Vicer Exciser

"I will spit right in your f**king face / How does it taste? / After the lips are sealed below your waste / You will never f**k again." - ThatStrangeKid42

12 Elysia - Filthy

"Using a gun to stimulate her clit / She's crying but I simply will not quit / I pulled the trigger as her moans grew bigger / I stared into her pretty eyes as I cut / Tear at her flesh, rip the f****** slut." - ThatStrangeKid42

13 Cannibal Corpse - Pit Of Zombies

"Tearing off my feet with fury / The pain intense below my knees / My legs have been removed / They suck the blood from the wounds." - ThatStrangeKid42

14 Rammstein - Mein Teil

"denn du bist, was du isst und ihr wisst was es ist ES IST MEIN TEIL" its about a cannibal eating someones penis. The live performance is very violent as well (a lot of fire and blood) and the musicvideo is really disturbing. Enough said.

26 Payback - Slayer

Let me give you some insight on how violent this song is:

In the chorus the lead singer brutally beats his opponent to death, with lines such as “I’m going to tear your *CENSORED* eyes out, rip your *CENSORED* flesh off, beat you til you’re just a *CENSORED* lifeless carcass! ”

This song should be #1. - railfan99

27 Slipknot - Scissors UListen to Sample
28 F***ing Hostile - Pantera UListen to Sample
29 Nine Inch Nails - Big Man With a Gun

I know, I know NIN aren't a metal band. But this is one of their more metal sounding songs so it counts.
