hey all! I'm kind of new here, so excuse me if this is in the wrong forum


anyways, I play varsity ice hockey over at my high school, and I'm the only kid on the team into metal. Everybody else is into rap

Anyways, since it's my senior year, all the seniors get to choose which music gets played on the loudspeakers during and before our games.

I mainly listen to death metal like Kalmah and kind-of-death-metal-band-Otep, but I don't want to freak out my teammates or the fans at the game.


Anyways, i don't listen to a large variety of metal bands, i just listen to a lot of metal, if that makes any sense...

SO, without further ado, what are some good "catchier" metal songs, that aren't TOO heavy, but still sound kick ass enough for it to be a good song to march out to, excluding Metallica, because everybody on the team listens to Enter Sandman and One, so they pretty much know Metallica--I want to show them less poppier metal groups. I was thinking maybe a Bullet for My Valentine song, but then again, they are kind of poppy as well.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

Blind Guardian- Under the Ice
not too heavy, and if this epic chorus doesn't get you pumped, nothing will
and it totally fits the hocky theme

Progenies of The Great Apocalypse - Dimmu Borgir.

It would make you feel badass coming out for the game. Pretty mild as black metal goes, too.

No metalcore. People will think it's either "death metal" or "screamo."

Bay Area Thrash always gets the job done, even if it is Metallica.

Try playing some Exodus, or Heathen. Bonded by Blood is a good one. When I was in hockey, that song really got the team going.

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

Warp Zone - Martyr. The intro riff kicks ass.
90% of teens say they would cry if they saw the Jonas Brothers about to fall off a skyscraper, if you're one of the 10% who would shout, "JUMP MUTHA*******", put this in your signature

A Skull Full Of Maggots by Cannibal Corpse, if that doesn't get you pumped you have no pulse.

That, or Spheres of Madness by Decapitated.

Edit: Raze by Exodus is good too.

but the best of all, I just realized: The Fire and the Fury by Firewind.

If you want catchy I'd recommend looking at some Nu-Metal, try some Disturbed perhaps

If you want catchy, you can't beat Into The Pit by Testament. A great thing to enter the ice to.

Death or original?

In his case. The original.

Otherwise I marginally prefer Death's. Biomechanical's version kicks a lot of ass too actually.

Manowar - Warriors Of The World is triumphant against other meek suggestions brought up in this thread.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

Walking out to Para bellum + This is the war by Vader would be epic as. Vader mightn't be accessible enough though.

Walk out to North by Vader.

Do it.

But, really...

but since you probably won't choose that, take a look at:

Presence of the Dead- Pestilence
Through Eyes of Glass- Forbidden
Baptized in Blood or Flattening of Emotions- Death
Hunter/Killer - Quo Vadis
Malpractice or D.N.R. - Testament

They also have to use swords not hockey sticks.

You can't go wrong with most speed metal or thrash. Painkiller, like mentioned before is a great choice.
