This is what it means to be metal!

This is what it means to be metal!

This is just a few of the metal songs that I think everyone should hear before they die.

#1: Scarabs - Karnivool

Scarabs is just one of the sickest and heaviest songs ever. Not only that, but it is also extremely difficult to follow in how complex the time signatures are.

Highly recommended.

#2: Dark Horse - Converge

Do you ever need to just feel...power?

I always listen to converge when I need to go on a run, and the song I always listen to, to start me off and get pumped, is Dark Horse.

It is the perfect song to get your heart pounding.

#3: Bleed - Meshuggah

Talk about insane.

Thomas Hawke actually put out a contest on YouTube to see if anyone could play this song on drums.

No one could.

The sheer intensity of the triple/flam double-bass hits, combined with a simple 4/4 drum beat is too insane to be able to copy.

This song is insane.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
