    No suggestions (sorry)–I was just humored because I think that you are my metalhead husband’s long lost twin! He kept asking about playing Slayer 🙂


    Actually, wait, I do have a suggestion–of sorts. I think you should totally do whatever your style is and if you love metal, you love metal, but I do relish the idea of using some tracks off Pat Boone’s metal covers album for your guests to dance to because it’s sort of tongue and cheek you + traditional wedding. Come on–it’s Pat Boone doing “Panama”!

    Do you have a favorite, or maybe on eyour leaning towards? Me personally, I liked the second one, and the forth one.

    My girls will be waking down to apocalyptica. Their version of Nothing else matters by Metallica 🙂

    caveat: i don’t know any of these (or maybe that’s what you’re looking for)

    of all of them, i liked #5 the best as it had a faster tempo (aka less like a funeral march) and felt more “optimistic” – a better starting point for a happy marriage!

    Queen did a version of the traditional Here Comes The Bride march for Flash Gordon. It’s probably not what most consider “metal” because, well, it’s Queen. But it’s rocking’. Not doom and gloom, and familiar enough that everyone knows what it is, but it’s definitely not the traditional wedding march.

    Hi!  Not a metal expert by ANY means, but I did listen to them all!  I liked (and voted for) #5.  I agree with PP – it felt the most upbeat/happy occasion to me. 🙂  I also didn’t mind the 1st one, but having “funeral” in the title threw me off. 🙂  Lastly, for some reason, #2 was creepy to me – not that it’s a bad song, just gave me a weird feeling for some reason.  Good for you for making your wedding totally you!!

    @MsChippyChap:  I listened to them and I think Ulver has a lighter feel than the others, so it gets my vote!

    My processional is most definately metal!

    The wedding party are walking out to Rejoice in the Fires of Man’s Demise by 3 Inches of Blood

    I will be walking down to Motorhead’s Love me Forever

    I think you should choose whichever song makes you happiest, because honestly, if it’s not a popular song that everyone knows, no one will remember it but you (and a few of your die hard metal friends)

    Horns up!
