In a joint venture with Heavy Metal Time Machine, Rock of Ages, Hard Rock Hideout, Heavy Metal Addiction and Bring Back Glam, we happily smashed a few pumpkins and carved others with tealight candles to the tune of some of our favorite horror-themed heavy metal songs. With the varying latitudes of heavy metal out there, to contain it to a list of merely ten is difficult for me, considering that the death and black metal genres alone have a billion horror songs for the season. But to have fun with this task that we've all undertaken today at our posts, here's ten groovy ghoulies metal style in no particular order:
1. Iron Maiden - "22 Acacia Avenue"
2. Slayer - "Raining Blood"
3. Helloween - "Halloween"
4. Misfits - "Die Die My Darling"
5. Alice Cooper - "Gail/Roses On Black Lace"
6. Lizzy Borden - "Love You to Pieces"
7. Fastway - "Trick Or Treat"
8. Cannibal Corpse - "Hatchet to the Head"
9. Wendy O Williams/Plasmatics - "You're a Zombie"
10. Gwar - "Slaughterama"
