    Post the one song that defines metal for you the most

    Got thinking after Rocka having used Manowar to the rescue in the Polythia thread about how we've probaby all got that one song/band that defines metal for us.

    So, no cheating here, post ONE song (not two, three, four or more, because everyone can count and this isn't a list of favourite bands all time ever and all their songs spam ss.org mega prog 5d spiral djent is awesome thread). Should be interesting to see the results.

    I honestly don't think I could, not in one song. That's the beauty of metal for me really, it's disparate and has such a vast selection of sub-genres (not to mention the sub-genres of said sub-genres) and their respective sub-genres that there is no definitive 'metal' sound outside of distorted guitars.

    This is super hard because there are so many styles of metal and metal today got so brutal and aggressive that makes all other older bands sound like hard rock... but if I had to choose just one (impossible task):



    Why?

    - It's fast, its Raw and Melodic at same time, makes you want to Mosh, makes you want to sing along and has nice soloing work. It's everything Metal is (or was) that made me love this music style forever.

    Oh i know all this, but think of it this way, if you were to think metal, maybe around the time you got into it, what would that be? What's your "safe place"
