Mik’s Top 50 – Intros That Instantly Grab My Attention #43-44

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!

#44 Rammstein – Engel

Gott weiß ich will kein Engel sein”
(God damn! I’m not an angel when I die)

This song has one of the most recognizable intros I’ve ever heard and it’s quite beautiful as the whistling sound continues throughout the song. A nice contrast to the heavy sound of Rammstein. ‘Engel‘ can be found on the album ‘Sehnsucht‘, released in 1997.

#43 Meshuggah – Spasm

“Lost to their control
A sentence – in flashes told
Enticed by their calls; – Insane, divine”

I have just started to get familiar with Meshuggah’s music and this is one of the more accessible tracks I’ve found. It has a hypnotizing, repetative intro, a nice riff in the background and odd, robot-like vocals performed by Meshuggah’s drummer, Tomas Haake. This track is from the album ‘Nothing‘, released in 2006.

About Irmelinis

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

  1. Sensucht is such a wonderful album. Engel is the song that introduced me to the band. I know this is about intros but this songs would also makes lists for its bridge and its outro!
