What do you think is the heaviest song ever? Not limited to heavy metal songs.
To be heavy the song doesn't have to have distorted guitars, light speed riffs or
growling vocals. The heaviness is also delivered by musical weight, how dark the
theme and the overall atmosphere is and the "vibe" of the music.

Personally at this moment I think Diamond Head's Am I Evil? is the heaviest
song (Metallica agrees with me).



Listen to that opening riff and how it's played at just the right tempo to
maintain the heaviness. The vocals are clean but actually I think the contrast
actually serves to make the song even heavier. The dark lyrics add to that.
Finally, check out the ******** solo heard towards the end.

Some pretty heavy songs posted so far!


I would have to give my "Heavy" vote to Pantera because...............of the huge change they made from Glam to Heavy with the album "Cowboys From Hell"....


Cowboys From Hell



And my personal favorite from the album:

Cemetery Gates (Full Version)

To me Black Sabbath are the kings of heavy songs.

This is one of their songs that immediately comes to mind and it's one of my personal favorite Sabbath songs.

Black Sabbath Sabotage
