    its not an intro to a song but its like a little intro song Nile does.

    Die Rache Krieg Lied Der Assyriche

    it means somthng like the vengfull war song fo the Assyrians or the war song of the vengfull Assyrians. just sounds pretty bad ass.

    Runes To My Memory ftw..... but the beginning of Cry of the Blackbirds is awesome too. That whole album is pretty good, IMO.....



    Forgot a couple earlier:


    Trivium- A Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation
    As I Lay Dying- Through Struggle
    Atreyu- Doomsday
    Dog Fashion Disco- Rapist Eyes
    Chimaira- Pure Hatred
    Chimaira- Power Trip
    DevilDriver- End of the Line (more than 30 seconds, but I love the intro, it's one of the better ones I've heard)
    DevilDriver- Not All Who Wander Are Lost
    Coal Chamber- Sway (old school Dez ftw :p)
    Sevendust- Praise
    Soulfly- Eye for an Eye
    Static-X - I Want to Fucking Break It
    Static-X - Dirthouse
    Flyleaf- I'm So Sick (Live, the CD doesn't do it justice, Lacey can freakin scream)
    Otep- Blood Pigs
    Kittie- Run Like Hell (Floyd cover) (Mercedes can actually drum in this song, lol...)
    Lacuna Coil- Tightrope
    Fear Factory- Bite the Hand that Bleeds
    Cradle of Filth- Dirge Inferno



    That's just some more, and if I reposted any, I'm sorry, running on very little sleep.....

    Repost.


    But I have to agree with Kashmir, one of the greatest songs ever made.

    War- Lowrider
    Jimi Hendrix- Foxy Lady
    Jimi Hendrix- Voodoo Chile (A Slight Return)
    The Crystal Method- Starting Over
    The Crystal Method- Weapons of Mass Distortion
    Crossbreed- Breathe
    Faith No More- Epic (which it is, :bowdown:to Patton)
    Nine Inch Nails- Head Like A Hole
    Nine Inch Nails- Hurt
    Nine Inch Nails- Closer
    Dope- Bitch
    Nugent- Cat Scratch Fever
    AC/DC- Back In Black
    Beastie Boys- Intergalactic
    Gorillaz- Clint Eastwood

    and the last one, I'm going to post the lyrics to the beginning:

    Dope- Survive

    What do you have to say to the individuals who have intentionally misinterpreted or miscommunicated your message and to those who have blatantly lied, cheated or stolen directly from you?

    It's easily one of the most recognizable guitar lines in rock history, plain and simple. If you've heard the song, it's ingrained in your mind until you are dead.


    Kashmir is better though.



    Strapping Young Lad- Devour
    Between The Buried And Me- Alaska
    3 Inches Of Blood- Deadly Sinners
    36 Crazyfists- Bloodwork
    Clutch- Electric Worry
    Marilyn Manson- The Fight Song
    In Flames- The Quiet Place
    Chimaira- Cleansation
    Amon Amarth- Death In Fire
    As I Lay Dying- Nothing Left
    Orgy- Dissention
    Boysetsfire- Bathory's Sainthood
    Boysetsfire- Eviction Article

    I would have to say Limbonic Art - Beneath the Burial Surface and Decapitated - Spheres of Madness come to mind. Also Emperor - Into the Infinity of Thought.
