Can anybody post some ideal metal songs to learn? I hate learning songs I already know (as in have listened to), so can people post some of their favourites to play? I've been playing for about 4 years, I'm bored, and need a new challenge. Two rules: NO IRON MAIDEN and NO METALLICA, I own all of their discographies, and have listened to all their songs.

Try some other stuff, maybe damn right i got the blues - buddy guy or rumble in brighton- stray cats, play more than just metal, try some jazz or rockabilly, it'll help you out more than you think, and help make your playing interesting and diverse, but if you HAVE to play metal, try some suicidal tendencies, i saw your mommy is a good one.

Great suggestions, especially the Slayer one, I'm really liking that sort of sound

You need to attempt to learn Sworn To The Black by Morbid Angel.
