(if this belongs in the rec thread, just tell me and I'll delete this one)

I'm looking for songs with really big choruses for a playlist I'm making. Here's what I have so far:

In Mourning - In the Failing Hour
Iron Maiden - Out of the Silent Planet
Kreator - Voices of the Dead
Blind Guardian - Imaginations from the Other Side, And the Story Ends

Any other recommendations (it can be any genre)?

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Slight thread hijack, to make it a bit more legit: what do y'all like in a chorus? Examples of good ones?

Sabbat have some amazing choruses, listen to these two and just TRY restrain yourself from headbanging:

However I suspect you're after more powerful, epic style stuff. For that, I doubt you'll get any better than this:

Lord Worm does the best choruses because only he knows where they are.
Free your mind and your ass will follow
The kingdom of heaven is within
Open up your funky mind and you can fly

Strapping Young Lad - Force Fed

I like how the song just suddenly becomes very melodic when the chorus starts.

It should catch my attention, get me thinking wow that was awesome. Basically it should lift the song, like the one I posted for example.

You already have a Kreator song i see but the To The After Burn chorus pretty big.

A LOT of Darkane songs have big choruses, Layer of Lies is in my head but I'm sure you could find many many more.

Dead Skin Mask by Slayer?

Taking the World by Storm by Kataklysm?

just a few off the top of my head.
