Nov 192015



It’s that time of year again, when we start preparing for the frenzy of year-end Listmania. For those of you new to the frenzy, our Listmania extravaganza comes in four parts. First, we re-print assorted lists of the year’s best albums, leeched from other big web sites and magazines. Second, we will collect our readers’ lists of the 2015 albums and shorter releases they enjoyed the most. Third, we post the year-end lists of our own staff and assorted guest writers. And fourth, I’ll roll out my list of the year’s Most Infectious Extreme Metal Songs.

And that last list is the subject of this request for help (we’ll be inviting you to give us your lists of the year’s best albums as we get closer to the actual end of the year — so start thinking about that).

In case you’ve become an NCS reader since this time last year, here’s what this Most Infectious Song list is about:

This is about individual songs, not albums, EPs, demos, etc. It’s also not our list of the best individual extreme metal songs of the year — though some of the songs might actually be among the best of the year. Instead, this is a list of the most infectious extreme metal songs we’ve heard this year. The idea is to think of songs that might produce involuntary physical movement, songs that have got catchy rhythms, memorable melodies, sweet grooves, or anything else that sticks the song in your head and makes you want to keep listening to it.

To be one of the most infectious songs of the year, it should be something that’s stuck in your head, something you put on playlists, something you mentally replay at unexpected times — songs you go back to repeatedly for listening. “Most played” might be a good synonym.

I’ve already got my own working list of candidates — there are a ton of songs on there at the moment — and I’m going to collect suggestions from all of our regular writers. But no doubt we will overlook some gems, so here’s what I’m asking: Please leave comments to this post with your suggestions — or e-mail them to:

I’ll then pick what I think are the most infectious tracks of the year and start playing those songs for you in groups of two or three as we get closer to year-end. The first year we did this (2009), I limited the list to 10 songs. In 2010, I expanded it to 30. In 2011 it grew to 39. In 2012 it topped out at 56. In 2013 I worked really hard and got the list all the way down to.. gulp… 73. And last year, well, last year life got in the way and I never finished the complete rollout, though I announced 62 songs before I gave up.

As you can tell, I have a really fuckin’ hard time making lists. And of course I have no idea how many songs we’ll feature this year.

So, reflect on the music you’ve really been enjoying this year and please let us hear from you. By leaving your favorite songs in the comments, this post will also become a way for other metal fans to find good music from the year that’s rushing to an end.


  1. For me it’s easily Sodomy and Blasphemy from Rabbid Armagedon by Under the Church. The whole fucking album is the bees knees in my opinion but I find myself singing this track specifically all day.

  2. Tribulation – Strange Gateways Beckon (possibly my favorite song of the year)

    Firespawn – The Emporer

    Ram – Enslaver

    Draconian – Heavy Lies The Crown

    Horrendous – Sum of All Failures

    Avatarium – Iron Mule
    (Sorry couldn’t find a YouTube link – songs awesome though!)

    Lost Soul – Aqueous Ammonia (or anything from that album really)

    Sulphur Aeon – Into The Courts of Azathoth

    Sulphur Aeon – Seventy Steps

    With The Dead – Living With The Dead

    Clutch – X-Ray Visions

    Division Speed – Blazing Heat

    Black Breath – Slaves Beyond Death

    In Twilight’s Embrace – Gravitate Towards The Unknown

    Speedtrap – Savage The Prey
    (Sorry couldn’t find a link on YouTube)

    Ramming Speed – Don’t Let This Stay Here

    Adversarial – Dissenting The Waking Shell

    There is so much more, but that’s all I can think of at the moment! Cheers!

    • That Tribulation has so many gems. “Strange Gateways Beckon”, “Melancholia”, “In The Dreams of the Dead”, or “The Motherhood of God” could/should all make the list. Same goes for like at least half of Anareta. And I need to get to that new Clutch, especially since Earth Rocker was so damn solid.

    • Just wanted to belatedly thank you for your list (and for including links) — sorry that the comments were inadvertently turned off when you first tried to leave it here.

  3. When it comes to infectious, it’s gotta be Gorod. Either ‘Celestial Nature’ or ‘The Mystic Triad of Artistry’ for mine.

  4. Panopticon – Pale Ghosts (or almost any other song from Autumn Eternal).

  5. Havukruunu – Unien Havulinnaan

    Blind Guardian – Prophecies

    Forefather – Curse of the Cwelled

    Tsjuder – Demonic Supremacy

  6. Crypt Sermon – “Temple Doors”

    Encyrcle – “Dizzy Me Deadly”

  7. Alkaloid-Cthulhu

  8. I know it’s “no clean singing” but seriously, my most infectious song of the year is Ghost Ship Octavius-Mills of the Gods. It’s a near perfect modern metal song imho

  9. Khemmis – The Bereaved

  15. Every year I think “I should keep a list of awesome tracks that stick in my mind” and fail to follow through. So off the top of my leaky memory:

    Sarpanitum – By Virtuous Reclamation
    Because – there’s at least 3 or 4 great riff/melodies that would be a great addition to any song. And like kids in a candy store they went and jammed them all into their mouth, I mean song, all at once

    Second To Sun – Land of the Fearless Birds
    Because – I was sold on buying this album after hearing this streaming here on NCS… and played it over and over until the album dropped 🙂 Heavy and slightly wacky… but despite the leftfield forays along the way they keep the song flying forward, threatening to go off the rails but still maintaining a coherent song structure. Golf claps all around for these crazy gentlemen!

    Stonebringer – Rubin
    Because – early Mastodon-y riffage with soaring female vocals and an oddly downbeat but catchy as hell chanted chorus. Somehow this song just sounds like home.

    Fear Factory – Anodised
    This is album is pretty catchy really, but this chorus just stuck in my head. The perfect accompaniment to watching a bit of ‘Humans’ or ‘Ex Machina’

    Mechina – On The Wings of Nefeli.
    Because – I think they just invented a new genre of ‘cyber space J-pop’… even though that’s probably not Japenese she’s singing… all I know is it sounds good passing into my earholes, hammering my hammer and staples 😉 Mel Rose nails it on this album.

    Opensight – The Chase:
    Because – it should have been on the James Bond soundtrack, timed to coincide with a cameo from Sean Connery just to mindfuck everyone with a retro throwback 🙂

    In Dread Response – Earthen Bonds
    The first song on the album and they make it clear they’re not here to fuck around! Riffs, velocity, solos, double bass fills = involuntary headbanging

    Mephorash – Riphyon – The Tree of Assiyah Putrescent
    Because – dark, luciferian chants that dig into the depths of my mind, combined with solid heavy tunes…mmmmmm

    Finsterforst – Zeit für Hass
    Because – big band metal! For the life of me I can’t find a stream of it anywhere though… 🙁

    Lost Soul – Aqueous Ammonia:
    Because – fury

  16. .. knew I’d forget something!

    Ladybaby – Nippon Manju
    For all those fans of Babymetal out there!

  26. Fuck, so many songs, so little time.

    Off the top of my head:

    The ugly – Black goat. Perhaps one of the catchiest songs this year for me, it’s also the highlight of an otherwise mediocre album.

    Moloken – Subliminal hymns. That intro. That bass sound.

    ShadowQuest – All one. Power metal with clean singing, but damn do they channel vintage Helloween in a most excellent way.

    Leprous – Rewind.

    Raised fist – Gates. The breakdown at 1:28 is damn nice.

    Raised fist – Depression

    Marduk – The blonde beast. The things you can achieve with a steady 4/4 beat and a possessed vocalist.

    Shining – Människotankens vägglösa rum.

    Vholdghast – I am. Pretty unknown band, but a great intro riff and a compelling vocal effort on this song.

    Alkaloid – Cthulhu. Ya can’t go wrong with Lovecraft at a crawling pace.

    Månegarm – Odin owns ye all. Cheesy, not a favourite by any means, but by George is that a ridiculously catchy song.

    Cut-up – Burial time

    Cattle decapitation – Manufactured extinct.

    Ghost – From the pinnacle to the pit. I could include pretty much the whole album, but this song stands out thanks to it’s throbbing bassline.

  27. Tau Cross – Prison
    Tau Cross – The Devil knows his own
    The whole album is just fantastic and currently my album of the 2015

    Kampfar – Daimon
    still need to listen to the whole album, but this song is just awesome

    Seagrave – Harvest in June
    some nice post/atmospheric BM

    Ghost Bath – Golden Number
    Brilliant song on a otherwise disappointing album.

    Gloryhammer – Universe on fire
    just some glorious happy metal

    Cross Vault – Revocable Loss
    I missed their debut, but I like the new songs. Kinda eerie, beautiful doom

    Gentleman’s Pistols – Devil’s advocate on call
    you just wanna dance and drink to this song

    Graveyard – Too much isn’t enough
    Slaegt – Move in Chaos

    And there are some other albums I have to wrap my head around (and would probably make this list but I’m quite bad at rembering song titles).

  28. Lot of good recs. Couple of others I thought of.

    Sylosis – Servitude
    Sanzu – Heavy over the Home

  29. Arkham Witch – From Beyond

    I just listen to this over and over again.

    (I blew the links in the 2015 year end list thread, apparently…)

  30. Rivers of Nihil – Monarchy

  31. Late to the party, and probably nothing here others haven’t suggested, but these are some of the metal songs that ruled my year:

    Panopticon–“Autumn Eternal”
    Tau Cross–“Our Day”
    Hate Eternal–“Locust Swarm”
    Myrkur–“Dybt I Skoven”
    Khemmis–“The Bereaved”
    Violet Cold–“La Petite Mort” (\m/83)
    Cloud Rat–“Rouge Park”
    Royal Thunder–“Time Machine”

    Not as heavy or ugly as some years, but whatever, these are the songs that kept me pushing replay. Hope to discover a shit-ton more when the lists are finalized! (Most years I don’t even discover half the good stuff until I get turned onto it by sites like this one and readers/commenters like these.)

  32. So many great choices on here already. Nice work.

    Beaten to Death – “Robert Sylvester Kelly”
    Tau Cross – “Our Day”
    Cattle Decapitation – “Mammals in Babylon”
    Marduk – “The Blond Beast”

  33. Dangz, I have but but skimmed the scurf of this year’s offerings. But here are some infectious melodies that I haven’t seen in my extremely brief perusal of the offerings above. And if they are already mentioned, my apologies. They be good enough to mention again!
