Ending with a bang.

Metal has always be known as one of the most abrasive genres of music. Though many people may claim to be an eclectic fan of music, even some of the more seasoned pros won't dare take on music that's this extreme. While some bands like to blow your speakers out from one track to the next, the right acts know how to balance everything out.

When crafting a metal album, most musicians look to give you a surge of excitement from the first second it starts. On the other hand, how do you bring everything to a close? Even though you've been hammering away at the listener for the last few minutes, what's going to be the one thing that takes your final statement from 10 to 11? For any lesser band, they just plow through to the end, but these songs are a bit of a different animal.

Instead of the usual songs that you've already heard throughout the album, these tracks bring everything home with arrangements that are a lot larger in scope, almost like you're watching sonic skyscrapers being built with every single riff. For a genre that's always been known for its blunt force, these songs are proof that there are plenty of metalheads who understand the importance of leaving on a high note.
