With a huge library of music, including a large selection of metal genres, Spotify is a great option for metalheads. You can find just about any kind of metal music you’re looking for on Spotify, from black metal to death metal to doom metal and beyond.

If you’re a fan of metal music, then you need to check out Pandora. Pandora is a streaming music service that offers a personalized listening experience. You can create stations based on your favorite metal bands and Pandora will play similar songs for you.

##Heading: Pandora
Pandora is one of the most popular streaming music services available and it has a great metal station. The service is free with ads, or you can pay $5 per month to remove ads and get some other features like higher quality audio streams. You create your own stations by seed them with an artist or song, then Pandora plays similar tracks. It’s a great way to discover new music.

##Heading: Spotify
Spotify is another popular streaming music service with a great metal station. It’s similar to Pandora in that you can create your own stations or listen to pre-made stations, but it has a much larger music library (including many metal songs that Pandora doesn’t have). Spotify also offers a premium subscription that removes ads, gives you higher quality audio streams, and lets you download songs for offline listening.

##Heading: Apple Music
Apple Music is Apple’s streaming music service, and it has a decent selection of metal songs and albums. If you’re an iPhone user, it’s probably the most convenient option because it integrates tightly with the built-in Music app. Apple Music also has a feature called “For You” which recommends new music for you to listen to based on your listening history. A subscription to Apple Music costs $10 per month.


SoundCloud is a go-to app for heavy metal fans. With over 175 million tracks, it has one of the most diverse music selections of any streaming app. You can find everything from underground black metal to classic metal and everything in between. And if you create an account, you can start following your favorite artists and get notified when they release new music.
