Another great one. First half of the song is very intense but it does slow down quite a bit towards the end.

Man DavidMahler was in before me on the Mahler recommendation.

 

Ahh well here's my rocked out Mahler pick.  Symphony 2 the Resurrection - jeez could it be any bigger and heavy?  Wow.  And Bernstein is an utter bada**.

 

 

Tchaikovsky's Symphony 6 Pathetique. -  My favorite symphony ever.  So many feelings are hit in just the first movement alone. Anger, misery, despair, hatred, anxiety.  Emotions that metal can often evoke.  Lovin' it.

Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet but Beethovens 5th! especially the first 8 notes.. I can just imagine James Hetfield chomping it out

Hey, am I the first to mention Alexander Mosolov's The Iron Foundry? It's not just metal, it's extreme metal! (Or perhaps simply Industrial.)

 

 

 

Actually, I think most, if not all, good classical music is metal-like. It shares the same emotional intensity.
