Zombie Metal Playlist

Hungry for horror? Looking for some brutal, metal tunes to crank as you bash open zombie brains? Look no further. We got what you need.


Ramesses – Baptism of the Walking Dead

Genre: Death/Doom Metal.

Review: Erie, haunting and infused with droning horror. I give this song 7 zombie brains out of 10.


Nile – Eat of the Dead 

Genre: Brutal Technical Death Metal

Review: How can you not love this deliciously brutal song? It punches you in the face with riffs that are both powerful and technically written. The vocals are guttural and grotesque – like the excruciating cries of a man being mummified alive. I give this song 8 rotting corpses out of 10.


Vader – God is Dead 

Genre: Death Metal/ Thrash

Review: You say this isn’t a zombie song? I thought Jesus was a zombie. Doesn’t he come back from the dead? Also, I love Vader and wanted an excuse to post one of their songs. Their vocals are so diabolically dark and evil – the vocalist sounds like he gargles glass and bat’s blood for breakfast. This song definitely gets 8 upside down crosses out of 10.


Kataklysm – The Night They Returned

Genre: Death Metal/Melodic Death

Review: Gotta love those Kataklysm drums. Their drummer is a beast. This song is a good balance of brutality and ominous dread. It gets 7 decayed tomb stones out of 10 from me.


Cannibal Corpse – Hammer Smashed Face 

Genre: Classic Death Metal

Review: Any self respecting metal head who is not familiar with this song should get their face smashed in by a hammer. This is a classic Death Metal hit. I give this 9 skulls out of 10. Yes, I’m biased for classics.

Fun Facts: This song made a short appearance in Jim Carrey’s “Ace Ventura Pet Detective” Film.


Judas Priest – Night Crawler 

Genre: Heavy Metal

Review: Holy shit I love me some priest! This is probably my favorite zombie song hands down. Chock full of punching riffs, great melodies and dynamic-chilling Halford Vocals. If I were stuck in a zombie apocalypse, I would love nothing better than to kill the living dead with priest blasting out of my speakers. Than I would ride away with Halford on his motorcycle and we’d have a fun platonic time (since he plays for the other team so to speak). This song gets 10 blood soaked axes out of 10 baby!

One response

  1. This is a cool idea and the Judas Priest song is top-notch, no doubt. Otherwise I would have to go with death metal like Autopsy, Entombed, Obituary and the like.
