The Classic: Judas Priest - Beyond The Realms of Death
I do not need to speak any words about "Beyond The Realms of Death", just listen for yourself, and you will understand the greatness of this song.

The Newcomer: Gojira - Silvera
"Magma" in general is not a new "L'Enfant Sauvage", which might scare off some people, but do not worry, the album does have its fair share of heavy aggression, like in the awesome "Silvera". Good god, that opening riff is so amazing, and the song develops into one of the coolest and grooviest Gojira tracks ever. And then we have that epic and ultra technical solo that defies all sense, which I absolutely love. This is truly Gojira at their best.
The Personal Favourite: Enslaved - One Thousand Years of Rain
One of my favourite songs from last year, Enslaved dazzled me big time with "One Thousand Years of Rain". That opening riff alone (both the acoustic and normal version) makes this song amazing, but it is the flow and the tempo changes that takes it to a whole new level, twisting and turning your mind time and time again. It is a thinking man's song, and your brain cells will thank you for the exercise.
