Friday Top 10: Best Death Metal songs

People always ask me “Hey, you awesome metal journalist you, what are the best songs of <insert genre>,” so I figured I’d write a list about the greatest Death Metal songs of all time.

There are just a couple of rules I’m limiting myself to. #1 Only one song per band, #2 Must be Death Metal; not Melodic Death, Deathgrind or Blackened Death.

Sounds simple? Well, it is, isn’t it? So make the jump now for this week’s Friday Top 10.

Melodic pieces by not so melodic bands

Isn’t it great when you’re listening to an ultra-brutal Death Metal band and suddenly a catchy melody kicks in? Personally, I’m a sucker for these melodic parts and many Death Metal bands did just that and incorporated parts like that into really heavy songs.

There’s just something about the contrasting sounds of really heavy riffs and catchy, melodic guitar playing that gets to me. Hell, Melodic Death Metal is based on that very concept but that’s not really what I’m talking about.

I’m talking about bands who are really heavy, classic Death Metal and the melodic parts I’m talking about are really rare within this band’s catalogue. It’s just great when a melody catches you off-guard because you simply didn’t expect something like that.

Now, make the jump for 5 examples of what I’m talking about.

Video of the Week: Bloodbath

The video above is for Bloodbath’s ‘Hades Rising’ off their latest album ‘The Fathomless Mastery.’ I remember when the video for the song was first announced and I was impatiently waiting, lurking for hours on the official Bloodbath forum and stuff like that. When the video was finally released on Youtube, I was kind of disappointed with the video itself but the song remains one of my favorite Bloodbath tunes, especially the mindblowing outro.

Bloodbath have, over the years, achived quite a lot. The band was just formed in 1998, as a so-called supergroup, and then became one of the most respected and popular Death Metal acts, among oldschool Death Metal fans, just like younger Death Metal fans. In a time, where every second band is called a supergroup, it’s refreshing to listen to a real supergroup that plays awesome music.

Friday Top 10: Best album covers

It’s Friday and therefore it’s time for another Top 10 list. We’ve done worst album covers in November and most brutal album covers last week, but somehow we’ve never done best album covers. So, I guess it’s about fucking time.

Before we dive right into it, I want to let you know that, despite labeling it one of my favorite album artworks, I won’t include Slayer’s ‘Christ Illusion’ for the simple reason that I want a fresh Top 10.

Feel free to make the jump now… or die trying!
