Free Press Playlist: Best Metal Songs for the End of the World
By Free Press Staff
As you most likely have heard Saturday is supposedly the Rapture so we here at the Free Press thought that the End of the World marked a perfect time to break out the metal. Here’s 10 songs to jam to while waiting for the inevitable looting to begin. This is by no means a comprehensive list and is only intended to offer suggestions, in other words don’t get pissed if your favorite band didn’t make the list.
1. God Send Death Slayer
An oldie but a goodie and it perfectlyevokes the end times while still rocking harder than most bands ever will.
2. More Human than Human White Zombie
A perfect for capping demons, zombies or whatever mutants crawl up out of the pits to try and take over the ‘Trose.
3. Jesus built my Hot Rod Ministry
Industrial meets speed metal meets Gibby Hayes. Perfect jam for an end of the world dance party. And by dance party we mean watching Beelzebub sitting on a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float being towed by hundreds of slaves down Washington Ave.
4. Infinte War Corrosion of Conformity
Kick ass track to help with kicking ass.
5. Living through me (Hell\’s Wrath) Pantera
No list would be complete without at least one entry from the Kings of Texas metal. They almost single-handedly put the Lone Star State on the heavy metal map in the late 1980s and early 1990s, then in 1996 they dropped what is often considered their masterpiece and it was good.
6. Ace of Spades Motorhead
Ah yea, everyone’s favorite track by everyone’s favorite band. You know the Devil wants to come to earth just to see if he can outdrink Lemy.
7. Necropolis Black Dahlia Murder
The new kings of the metal underground showing everyone else how its done, perfect music for shoving through fleeing masses.
8. Tomorrow Police Valient Thorr
Massive riffs meets massive beards in a massive song by a band that owns almost all others out there.
9. The Lord is a Monkey Butthole Surfers
While not specifically metal by some people’s standards the Butthole Surfers having been holding down the fort for speed-psychedelia longer than most people who read this site have been alive. And the sound scapes they create scream Apocalyptic nightmares.
10. Tin Omen SkinnyPuppy
Closing it down with some deep dark gothic industrial to put you in the mood for the inevitable fight to take the cities back from the minions of hell.
