Mik’s Top 50 – Intros That Instantly Grab My Attention #23-24

#24 Dismember – Dreaming In Red

“Flatlined and cold I lay, victim of their play
In the shadows of the obscure, my soul forever never more”

This intro rules, it starts off all mystic-like and goes on for a long time for being an intro. Then it turns into a guitar solo, before the vocals kick in. It’s nice with a guitar solo in the beginning of a song, instead of only in the middle or the end. This is such an awesome track!
From the album ‘Indecent and Obscene‘, released in 1993.


#23 Soilwork – Soilworker’s Song of the Damned

Song of the damned, never ends, so don’t pretend. We are condemned where we stand, where we stand
This machine creates, what in some people’s mouth is called art
Too hard to comprehend, too hard but will not bend, we will not bend”

The infectious and memorable guitar hook in this intro gets me every time. I love it! It leads into an even more amazing and epic Soilwork song with a great chorus, as always. It’s the ending track of the excellent album ‘Natural Born Chaos‘, from 2002.

  1. I’m less a fan of what comes after than you are, but I must admit these are some very tasty intros. That first 1:35 of the Dismembered track is downright mesmerizing!
