10 Greatest Metal Songs of 1993

The year 1993 was a transitional one for metal. The late '80s glut of radio friendly metal acts was being eschewed away by the grunge explosion, leaving the genre in a state of trying to regain its hold in the music world. By the time 1993 rolled around we began to see pockets of metal sub-genres starting to take hold. The more extreme, death and sludge metal acts started knocking down doors, some of the remaining vets of the '80s adapted with the times and there were a few metal acts who even broke through the radio barrier. As we reflect on the greatest metal songs of 1993, it's interesting to see just how the roots of future favorite acts were just starting to take hold. So join us as we count down the 10 Greatest Metal Songs of 1993.

10 Epically Heavy Gear Choices for Doom, Stoner + Sludge Metal

The past decade or so has proven to be quite a potent one for lovers of heavy rock and metal. One particular genre that's benefited with a growing fanbase is stoner rock, which is characterized by its incredibly massive sound and heaving, sludgy riffs that are oftentimes drawn out into full-blown compositions that can easily top the 10-minute mark. Bands such as Sleep, Kyuss and The Melvins helped lay the groundwork for a lot of well-loved rock, and it's really cool that those artists and others in their ilk are finally starting to get the attention and praise that too few realized not too long ago. Plus, the genre has helped reinvigorate interest in the bigger-than-life fuzzy guitar tones of the 70's, and how far they can be pushed to create the meanest sound possible.
