More music!

Inspired by Craig’s claim that Judas Priest’s The Sentinel is the perfect metal song, I thought I’d put up a list of my top ten metal songs. Nothing says metal like Good Friday, right?

These aren’t in any order. That’s too much work for my day off.

Slayer – Raining Blood
Katatonia – Brave
At the Gates – World of Lies
Dark Tranquillity – Punish My Heaven
Soilwork – Neurotica Rampage
The Haunted – In Vein
In Flames – December Flower
Nevermore – The Riverdragon Has Come
Opeth – When
Opeth – Godhead’s Lament

A pretty thrash-oriented list, I think. Most of the songs are rather recent, but I can’t help that.

    Must be an age thing. Slayer is the only band I recognize.

    Age and obscurity. There’s really not much good popular metal anymore.

    And I just realized there are seven bands from Sweden on that list. So there’s country of origin, too.

    Based on the blog’s name, I expected more speed metal (not that I can differentiate speed, thrash, or any other kind of metal).

    About half those bands are Melodic Death Metal, which is half speed (or thrash) metal, so there ya go.
