The 10 Best New Metal Songs You Need To Hear Right Now

You know it’s a special week where the return of Tony Iommi and Ozzy Osbourne working together isn’t even the biggest news of the week. Nope, we’ve got a brand new Slipknot album to look forward to, a Megadeth/Ice-T collab to admire, and “the heaviest Muse song ever.”

It’s a hell of a line-up, but first let’s celebrate Disturbed, winners of last week’s poll for best track of the week with their new single Hey you, presumably taken from the band’s eighth studio album. Nu metal is definitely back, folks.

This week we are again stacked with massive names; in addition to Ozzy Osbourne, Slipknot and Megadeth, we have new songs from Alter Bridge and Muse, the return of Dead Cross from Mike Patton and superb displays of heaviness from Norma Jean and Ithaca. As always, don’t forget to vote at the bottom of the page!
