Whether they come from your favourites bands or albums or just something you really like from someone else, what are your top metal songs of all time? Or can be songs by metal bands that are a bit softer if you like.

For me, it's tough, so I decided to look at my most played on Last.fm.

Blind Guardian - Journey Through the Dark is my most played track with 79 recorded listens.

A Past and Future Secret by the same band is only just behind with 75. This isn't even a metal song, but for a long while this was my most played track of all time. Blind Guardian is a rare band that can really pull off this sort of thing within a metal album. 

Other tracks I've played a lot are:

Wolfchant - Eremit
Factory of Dreams - Whispering Eyes
Blind Guardian - A Voice in the Dark
Huntress - Eight of Swords
Anubis Gate - Find a Way (Or Make One)
Blind Guardian - I'm Alive
Blind Guardian - Tommyknockers
Wuthering Heights - The Road Goes Ever On
Anubis Gate - Dodecahedron
Blind Guardian - The Script for My Requiem
Blind Guardian - Traveller in Time
Sonic Pulsar - Dreamscales (my favourite instrumental track)
Huntress - Spell Eater
Anubis Gate - Options- Going Nowhere
Blind Guardian - Ride Into Obsession
Rebellion - Arise
Wolfchant - Black Fire
Iron Maiden - El Dorado

There are two themes here: songs from my favourite bands and songs that were singles for albums I got really hyped for. For example I can't honestly say that I think El Dorado is the best Iron Maiden song. 

I'll have to think about a more definitive list. But that number one, that will certainly be in there. Probably some of the other Blind Guardian ones too.

Well that's a hell of an ask. My favourite ever metal song usually changes with each record I put on LOL I'll need to give it some thought.

From this morning  - the old classic Sign Of The Southern Cross by Sabbath. Although its been a lot of heavy-as-shit punk I've had on spin recently so they're current faves. Tomorrow it'll be something different and something more metal.

Well that's certainly true. Most recently I've played Breed 77 - La Ultima Hora quite a bit. Have it on right now in fact.

Immortal has long been one of my favourite bands. They have some pretty great songs, but the best standouts have to be when they were making thrashier black metal and this has to be one of my favourites.

I'm not on Last.fm, and you can't copy text from Spotify, but I can do screen shots. This is my current high rotation list (last updated 2 days ago):

There's so many songs that I rarely think about what my absolute favorite songs are. However, I could probably list my favorite song from each of my favorite metal bands, so I guess those would be my favorite metal songs?

Clutch - The Dragonfly (Not a metal band, but I consider their early stuff metal)
Helstar - Witch's Eye
Soundgarden - Loud Love
Pantera - The Art of Shredding
Judas Priest - Desert Plains
Anthrax - Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Rush - The Necromancer (Same thing with Clutch)
Korn - Beg for Me
Overkill - Birth of Tension
Megadeth - The Skull Beneath the Skin
Obituary - Don't Care
Oh, so it's bring my own? Bring my own what? FUN?! - Ludichrist
