And The Greatest Heavy Metal Song Of All Time Is…

So, I’ve decided the singular best heavy metal song of all time is Judas Priest’s “Tyrant.” Years of (imaginary) statistical proof have proven this. In fact, 1976’s essential Sad Wings Of Destiny is essential. Nevertheless, I went to see Enslaved tonight, and afterward, all I listened to was “Tyrant.” In fact, it’s my most played song on iTunes. It takes Cream’s heavy blooze to the next level, with their calculated harmonies and King-inspired guitar solos (B.B. or Albert, take your pick). And frankly, even compared to “Sunshine Of Your Love” and “Strange Brew,” it just takes it to the next level. BTW, Enslaved played stuff off of Hordanes Land, so check them out. (Best show of ’07 so far!)
