    I should thank Count Requiem for this since his best closers thread gave me the idea. So what do we think are the best opening tracks in music? Not just metal but in anything you like listening to. Here are some of my favourites: Death - Scavenger of Human Sorrow - The Sound of Perseverance Megadeth - Holy Wars...the Punishment Due - Rust In Peace Judas Priest - Exciter - Stained Class Iron Maiden - Moonchild - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

    Greatest Album Openers

    These threads are cool: Blind Guardian - Sacred Worlds - At The Edge of Time This is one of the most perfect examples of orchestral integration with metal music ever for me. It builds so well, is just so well arranged all round and feels a complete track as it fades out the guitars to allow the orchestral elements to close the track. The chorus is complete chest-beating, anthemic majesty and yet never once feels wanky! Judas Priest - Painkiller - Painkiller I mean, come on? This sets the tone for the entire album perfectly. Driven intensity from the word go as Scott bashes the living bejesus out of his drum kit before KK and Glenn get let loose with those fucking duelling guitars! Pantera - Cowboys from Hell - Cowboys from Hell I still lose my shit to this, years after first hearing it. Whilst the rest of the album hasn't quite stood the test of time so well, the opening track makes for a nostalgia driven piece of brilliance for me.
