A good intro to a record serves many purposes, but most importantly it is the bands starting point to grab a listener’s attention and set the mood and tone for the rest of the album. If it is a concept album it sets up the themes and story if there is one, if it’s a straight up brutal album it should be a track to really get the adrenaline running. And so on and so forth. Intros come in the form of an instrumental song, spoken word, or just a really strong track to get things started off on the right track.
Here are some of my favorite album intros. Some may be composed of 2 tracks due to the first part seamlessly transitioning into the second more or less making the 2 part of 1. Enjoy and let us know what some of your favorite album intros are! Peace Love and Metal!!!!
