Next week, we will unveil our list of metal’s Top 25 Album Openers over the course of all five days. Initially, this started out as just a Top 10 list, but there are far too many killer opening songs to confine the list to a mere ten, so we got ambitious.
There are a couple rules to this list:
Intro tracks count as an album opener! Those 30-second intros bands sometimes use do count. We’re talking about stuff to kick off the album from the moment you hit play. Sorry, King Diamond’s “Arrival.”
One song per band. Some bands have a knack for writing incredible songs to start an album, and one band in particular would have wound up dominating the 1-10 spots.
Now for the contest!
We’d like you to post your Top 5 Album Openers throughout the week, but only in the comments section of this article and this atirticle alone.
We would like you to pick what you think is the #1 song on this list.
We will accept all comments for the #1 song until midnight on Sunday (technically 12:00 am Monday for those of you who are confused).
The first correct answer posted will receive a GunShyAssassin T-shirt.
We will contact you on Friday via e-mail after the #1 song is revealed, so don’t post a comment under a bullshit e-mail address!
We will reveal #21-25 on Monday!
