Mik’s Top 50 – Intros That Instantly Grab My Attention #47-48

Here’s a list where you only have to listen to the first 30 seconds of the songs to know what I’m talking about!

#48 Overkill – Come And Get It

Overkill is not my style of metal, but this thrashy intro is awesome. The fact that it’s also the opening song of the album ‘The Electric Age’ from 2012, makes it even better, what a good, crushing, shredding, storming start of an album!


#47 Slipknot – (sic)

You just can’t go wrong with an aggressive, powerful drum intro and Slipknot knows how to do it. This is one of the very few Slipknot songs I like; fast-paced, extreme and intense with fantastic, heavy drums. Just like the one above, this is a great opening track. It’s from their debut album ‘Slipknot’, released in 1999.

A friend told me that I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.

  1. Mik, here is your Horrorscope. Let me know what you think of the intro.

    • That intro is awesome and very different! I wish I had known about it before, it would have been on my list too 🙂 I’ve never really paid much attention to Overkill’s music before, but this song is really good. And look, the old MTV logo with the colorful banner.. brings back memories.
