The most intense start to a metal album.

I never ventured too far out of 70's & 80's Heavy Metal and the 80's thrash big four until recently when I picked up Vile by Cannibal Corpse. The opening track "Devoured by Vermin" is the most intense thing I've ever heard. It blew my mind.

Here it is:





Can anyone match or surpass that? That shit floored me. Feel free to post any "heaviest" songs.

"Battery" from Metallica's Master of Puppets. Starts out acoustic, but the first time I laid the needle down and started spinning it, I know it was eventually going clamp my balls like a bear trap.

Re: The most intense start to a metal album.

The title/opening track on Judas Priest’s Painkiller is no holds barred.

This was what I was going to pick. An awesome drum start, the guitars kick in, and then the song just explodes. Halford outdoes himself here.

The Hellion/Electric Eye would be my first answer as well. We Rock, Over the Mountain, and Aces High also kick some serious ass right off the bat.

My vote also. Brilliant album. Bludgeoning and yet has great guitar harmonies.

They also did something similar on their next album ...

Re: The most intense start to a metal album.

If you want to step outside the metal realm and into punk, this scared the crap out of me when I was 13. Try listening to it with the lights off ....

I just fuckin' love that screech. I can only make out some of the lyrics, but maybe that's a good thing.





Can you get any heavier?
