My Five



The razor's edge

A powerful intro is the best part of this song that is a beautiful combination of guitar and drums, continuing with Brian Johnson's cool and thrilling voice. This song features in Iron Man 2, with some of their other songs such as Shoot to Thrill, Highway to Hell and Thunderstruck. A must-hear for hard rock lovers.

Lamb of God

Walk with me in hell

When it comes to Lamb of God, Chris Adler's amazing double pedal drumming has always been at the top of the discussion, with Randy's chaotic growl making the song a quality piece, and of course, Mark Morton's speeding guitar solos making it awesome. The song is from the group's fifth studio album Sacrament, which was released in 2006. In 2007, the band received a Grammy nomination for this album. The song talks about the destruction of co-dependency.

Funeral Mist

Blessed curse

It's an amazing track by a Swedish band from their latest album Maranatha. An exquisite guitar performance by Henrik Ekeroth a.k.a. Typhos takes you on a 12-minute journey into black metal world. The music is terribly noisy, yet mind-blowing.


Cowboys from hell

Cowboys From Hell is a song from the album of the same name released in 1990. It showcases Dimebag or Diamond Darrell's impressive guitar playing style, which was considered a new beginning in the world of metal.



Gojira is a French metal band formed in 1996, one of the best metal bands from the past few years. They are known for their love of Nature, and most of the songs have environment-based lyrics. This song is from their debut album Terra Incognita which was released in 2001. The perfect riffs of the guitar and drumming are incredible, so is Jean-Michel Labadie's performance.
