    Here’s the thing: while all of us love some juicy breakdowns - it’s the build up that gives it the oomph needed to unleash hell when it drops. For me the build up is essential. Without it these are just nasty ass breakdowns. I need time to pent up some energy and then almost snap my neck when the breakdown finally rolls out.

      Top-tier assessment.

    • Snazzy Jovial Wyrm
      Snazzy Jovial Wyrm Місяць тому +3

      I can head bang to a breakdown even without the build up, but I agree that the build up is what makes the break down so good.

      For me, being caught off guard is way better. I wanna headbang even more when a song just sneaks a breakdown on me halfway through a song.

  • Dennis Trusty
    Dennis Trusty Місяць тому +209

    The hardest one was Slaughter To Prevail, because I've almost became numb to Lorna Shores To The Hellfire's breakdown, all the other one's were easy. Not my style to headbang to imo.

      Absolutely! Also the one on Meltdown.

  • Cole Jordan
    Cole Jordan Місяць тому +67

    As I Lay Dying was the only breakdown that made me feel the slightest itch to headbang, but I resisted the urge to. I found the others boring. Slow breakdowns just don't appeal to me as much as catchier and more relentless ones do (like "Profane Believers" by Heaven Shall Burn, for example)

    • Pispok
      Pispok Місяць тому

      Same

    • Snazzy Jovial Wyrm
      Snazzy Jovial Wyrm Місяць тому

      Slow breakdowns don't hit as hard if you don't listen to the whole song, especially without the build up before them. It's like a jumpscare in horror. It's not good without the tension or buildup.

    • DankdaddyTyTy
      DankdaddyTyTy Місяць тому

      @Cole Jordan also agree, this is exile by whitechapel has a faster breakdown where you immediately headbang to. It's so nostalgic when he says This world is ours

      No, when I said I'm not a fan of the slow breakdowns, I meant that even when listening to full songs. I like my breakdowns on the punchy side.

  • Excalibur Yklz
    Excalibur Yklz 22 дні тому +2

    0:10 You're 100 percent correct, Alex. The build up is so important in breakdowns, that why even though Pantera's Domination has a simple breakdown, it is considered one of the best by a lot of metalheads because the build up was done so perfectly.

  • BritBaller
    BritBaller Місяць тому +20

    I passed, it’s definitely the build up to a breakdown that gets me. Best example is the breakdown in Bottom Feeder by Parkway Drive. “You can’t escape now snap your neck to this” gets me every single time haha

    I do really enjoy the breakdown on Zombified by FIR; however somewhat simple, it's very enjoyable and has a good pace, and not excessively heavy just for the sake of being heavy

  • Goner.
    Goner. Місяць тому +45

    I personally think that knocked loose should have been included in this list. Those breakdowns make me want to mosh, headbang and fight people all in one nice package of destructive smash. Also Lorna Shore being inducted twice is understandable but why…? Oh and Mac n cheese is clean.

  • James Hess
    James Hess Місяць тому +6

    "Becoming the Dragon" by Trivium DESTROYED me seeing them live in 2015! Not deathcore like most of the picks here, but the breakdown in that song sneaks up on you and breaks your neck faster than SCP-173, haha!

  • Helena Kasunić

    Lost it at the first "A Day To Remember" song. I hold that band close to heart as it was the band that introduced me to that genre of Metal.

  • Jessie Whittington eSports
    Jessie Whittington eSports Місяць тому +1

    I feel like those heavy deathcore breakdowns were easy to not headband because there’s really no groove to it. Baba Yaga is groovy and heavy, it makes the stank face come out and the irresistible urge to headbang. I’m with you on the songs it was tough to not headbang on, the others just had me stank facing it up.

  • Rodney Krebs

    Its hard to fail these challenges, yet I felt myself wanting to do some sort of movement since I knew all of these songs... but the moment you play Blastphemian, Baba Yaga, or ANYTHING with WIll Ramos I'm struggling big time.

    Thy Art is Murder almost took me out. There were some damn good ones in there, but I'll admit, King Ov Deception was a hell of a lot tougher than To The Hellfire was, and I adore both songs tremendously.

  • RastaganTheGreen
    RastaganTheGreen Місяць тому +1

    I guess my issue with these is it's ALLLLLLL metalcore.
    There are so many genres of metal with great headbangy parts and yet most of these headbang challenge videos have exclusively this stuff.
    Alex, if I upload mine, will you react to it? It's got everything from Anthrax to Immortal to Meshuggah

    I feel like the only breakdown I cannot for my life NOT headbang to, is Pantera's Domination. It's just such an iconic break, it's impossible for me.

  • Størm Hendrix
    Størm Hendrix Місяць тому +10

    Lemme tell ya.. I listen to all of those same songs almost every day and I've headbanged to them enough to send my head into fuckin' orbit... Them breakdowns are still straight brutal but I got through this like a breeze... Was grinning like a mf tho

  • Someguyy867
    Someguyy867 Місяць тому +5

    I feel for Lorna being easier than Slaughter has to deal with the instruments rather than vocals. See Lornas is all about Vocals and Slaughters is all about that power punching breakdown that’s just, well nasty.
    Both are brutal and i definitely prefer Lorna, but maybe they picked the wrong song. I know Sun//Eater has a caveman stompy breakdown.

    • Someguyy867
      Someguyy867 Місяць тому

      @Fe4Rr I’m a vocal man and I find Lorna more pleasing than Slaughter. But I enjoy both.

    • Fe4Rr
      Fe4Rr Місяць тому +1

      I see it as you do but for me, STP is miles ahead of Lorna Shore. It's just that brutal feeling, they never fail to give you. But I appreciate your opinion , Will's vocals are nasty af

    Yeah that was pretty easy! As I Lay Dying and Baba Yaga bout got me! But Deathmetal and Deathcore just doesnt do it for me! If these headbang challenges would stick more to the metalcore side of things, I'd be struggling! Frfr! lol
    Oh and dude, mac and cheese is SO clean!!

  • Kassandra Saldivar

    Suicide Silence - No Pity For A Coward got me because I saw them last year and all us homies in the pit were locked arms doing one collective group headbang. Heaviest shit ever when it's live, loud, and on a sticky wood floor.
    Something to be said about old school deathcore (not just SS). I've always thought the level of "dirtyness" in sound and mix compared to the newer stuff adds a different kind of heavy that makes me feel completely different. Stuff like Job For A Cowboy, old Whitechapel, Thy Art.
    I love it all, really, literally too much negativity in modern metal music. Let's all just enjoy this badass shit we fuck with so hard, can we not?

    Mac and cheese is clean. Also, the lead up to a breakdown is crucial to get you mentally prepared for what’s coming. If you just get the breakdown, a lot of times it is just loud music, and that’s great, but like anything else in life, if you don’t have context, you miss out. Keep it up Alex, loving the content!

    I was very close to headbang with Baba Yaga 😁

    From the title I thought "this is going to be insanely hard." I figure, I can do pretty well with the whole "Try not to laugh" type challenges but this would be a real challenge because, you know, music. And metal. But honestly...it sucked. At the risk of sounding like every boomer ever (or Hank Hill) "It's nothing but toilet sounds." Not a fan at all of that particular brand of "music" if you can even call gutteral gibberish and random flailing on instruments "music." Had this been a compilation of, like, Dragonforce, Skillet, Linkin Park, Metallica, 12 Stones, Pillar, Thousand Foot Krutch, Fireflight, Evanessence, you know the kind of metal that has more melody to it and lyrics you can actually vibe with (or, you know, are even remotely intelligible) then this probably would have got me. Even if they did some techno breakdowns, some Daft Punk or Skrillex type stuff that would be more likely to get me to headbang (or at least get the head boppin' action going). This was just a cake walk. It was more of a "try not to get annoyed/remove your headphones" type challenge for me, really.

    Hey Alex. You should react to Iced earth - wicked trilogy (these are 3 songs with a great story-telling).
    Iced earth is a North American heavy metal band and one of my favorites
    Thanks for your videos, is always great to watch you content!

    ILLIDIANCE Fuel For My Hate is one of the heaviest most unique breakdowns out there.

    The only one that was close to headbang was As I Lay Dying, cool riff. The others were easy not to headbang, when you start with glass gargling vocals.
