10 Most Disgusting Metal Songs That Will Make You Want To Puke
Heavy metal to outsiders is synonymous with devilishly dark themes, such as the works of genre mainstays like Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, and more, mainly portraying feelings of isolation and devastation. Sure there’s blood and guts along the way, but it’s not the focal point of their songs.
In more extreme forms of the genre though, the lyrics can get downright disgusting. Whether it be about cannibalism, rape, self-mutilation, or sexual deviancy – for better or for worse (mostly the latter), heavy metal has had some of the most deplorable and abhorrent messages scattered across its twisted backbone over the years.
These songs feature some of the gnarliest, goriest, and sickest lyrical content in all of metal, and let’s face it, music in general. The ten on this list are so disgusting, you’ll want to hurl your guts up. Warning: none of these tracks are for the faint of heart!
10. Cradle of Filth – Lord Abortion
Extreme metal titans Cradle of Filth got super deep on this track from their 2000 LP Midian, depicting a child who survived an abortion from a mother who didn’t want him. Why is it disgusting? Well, because the boy grows up to be a necrophiliac who violently rapes virgins. This seven-minute journey through the bowels of hell features horrific lines like: “I know I'm sick as Dahmer did, but this is what I do. Aah, aah, ahh, I'll let you sleep when I am through" and “She went out like the light in my mind. Her face an avalanche of pearl, of ruby wine” providing a terrifying insight into the tortured mind of their fictional character.
Most Disgusting Lyrics: “Her alabaster limbs that dim the lit carnal grin. Vaginal skin to later taste and masturbate within”
9. Carcass – Embryonic Necropsy And Devourment
One look at the cover of Carcass’ 1989 sophomore record Symphonies of Sickness, and you already know that it’s not going to be very PG. And on album cut “Embryonic Necropsy and Devourment,” they take that explicitness to the ultimate extreme. With lines centred on eating a still-born baby, Carcass spit out some of the most stomach-turning phrases ever recorded, such as “Mixing together post-natal juices, the dead infant used as stock,” and “Drink bile from a cup, gulp its phlegm from a pot. Eat mucus on a saucer, choke on embryonic clots” permeating its grotesque core.
Most Disgusting Lyrics: “Suck cess on a plate, lick its pus from a spoon. Gnaw at rashes on a dish, munch on the expelled womb”
8. Bloodbath – Eaten
Want a truly messed up song? How about the story of a man who wishes to be eaten alive, based on a true case in Germany, and performed by Swedish death metal group Bloodbath? Yes, that will do. In a song riddled with puke-worthy lyrics, perhaps the sickest is the utterly repugnant line: “I finally found you, my personal slaughter. As an appetizer, I'll let you taste my daughter” – making this already gnarly composition all the more distasteful. Amazingly, there’s also a song buried underneath the shocking lyrical content, and it’s utterly brilliant. In my humble opinion, “Eaten” may not be the most disgusting track on this list, but it’s certainly the best.

7. Torsofuck – Raped by Elephants
Okay, some might consider it dark humour, but “Raped by Elephants” by Torsofuck is still totally disgusting. The almost indecipherable lyrics are based around a man who goes to Africa, and gets raped by elephants. Yeah, that’s basically the extent of it… So not the cleverest song in the world but with lines like: “I screamed in agony when I felt it started to shove up my ass. Third elephant forced me to take its giant cock in my mouth” and “Extremely huge load of elephant sperm filled my throat and spurted all over my face,” it certainly nails the gross factor that it strives for.

6. Cannibal Corpse – I Cum Blood
Never lacking in violent imagery and gory lyricism – death metal outfit Cannibal Corpse have made a career out of shocking listeners with their extreme antics, and few songs ooze with the same wretched puss that their disgusting “I Cum Blood” track does. The whole theme of the song is necrophilia, with lines like “The smell was unbearable as I unburied her, I cum blood from my erection, I feel it run down her throat, swallow” emanating from its rotten core. If you can listen to this one without gagging, you’re a stronger person than me.
Most Disgusting Lyrics: “One month in the grave, twisted and half decayed. She turned a putrid yellow, I pissed in her maggot filled asshole”
