What is the greatest intro scream/growl/what have you/in your opinion in a metal song? You know, when that kickass riff or that sustained note just beckons for an aural beating?

I'd say The Dividing Line by Dark Tranquillity, or Silence Calls the Storm by Quo Vadis maybe.

Too many to possibly even begin with
A heathen, conceivably
but not,

I hope,
I’m not ashamed to be white
Vi doede ikke... vi har aldri levd
Barbarism is the natural state of mankind
Civilization is unnatural

It is a whim of circumstance
an unenlightened one

Abysmal Dawn - Programmed to Consume.. Totally ****in' violent as hell.
or
Dimmu Borgir - The Chosen Legacy.. Not the best one, but pretty aggressive to me.. I like it anyways.

Crown Of Horns comes to mind.

Defenestration too, though not the intro. but the first three overdubbed screams are orgasmic.
Free your mind and your ass will follow
The kingdom of heaven is within

Insanity - Death After Death
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Godsmack - Sick of Life

NEVER WANTED TO BE SICK OF MY LIFE
TIRED OF EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE


Man, I never get tired of the first three Godsmack albums. blame it nostalgia, or on whatever. I still love them.

This.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

I would've said Silence Calls The Storm, yeah.

There's another great one which I poorly ripped off. I can't remember what it is though, I'll edit it in later.

Also, while not an into or a growl, there's an amazing part in Hossanna in Excelcis by Sabbat, just after the solo.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

Bathory - Equimanthorn
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

Soul Evisceration - Bloodbath

Don't know if it's more a roar than a growl, but it is very delicious. Best served cold with a can of Tab

Guttural Engorgement (and everything else Mark Rawls related) is some of the most boring slam I have ever heard.

It's got much better mixing and everything too IMO.

IDK if that can be considered an intro growl... but ****.
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.
