Openers that kick your teeth in

The most aggro openers only. Just being a good first track doesn't count, it needs to be brutally high energy. Taking suggestions. One track per band as always.
1Lubricated Goat
Plays The Devil's Music


Jason The Unpopular - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TdkHSf4Q2c

Absolute quality. The rest of this album has a sort of "Venom does Mr. Bungle" vibe (to, uhh, middling effect) but holy shit does this opener slay. Props for one of the best band names I've heard too.
2The Jesus Lizard
Liar


Boilermaker - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPP0JuDdeAU

Utter banger. The instrumentation is nightmarishly good too.
3Pitchshifter
Desensitized


Diable - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0Bn7O0Tkzw

The tempo is a bit lower than the previous, but the aggro is still there. Heavy as all hell.
4Die Kreuzen
Die Kreuzen


Rumours - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDdlX80dgYI

Fuckin spastic!
5Big Black
Atomizer


Jordan Minnesota - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuCs1aKzWiQ

Oddly enough it's pretty much the only Big Black track where the guitars aren't too interesting, but the rhythm section is ferocious.
6Accept
Restless and Wild


Fast As A Shark - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTeXBTStek0

Listen, if you need a proper shitting table, you gotta go German.
7Dark Angel
Darkness Descends


Darkness Descends - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDDTmpw3fYg

The fine thrash metal tradition of putting your fastest track first (only to make every track as fast on the album).
8Immortal
At the Heart of Winter


Withstand The Fall Of Time - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ihVtuw2n0c

Pure cheese, but weightier than a neutron star. Definitely leaves a mark.
9mclusky
McLusky Do Dallas


Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgkzRE89Gyw

Great music video yo.
10Lightning Bolt
Hypermagic Mountain


2 Morro Morro Land - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwEQeGbUbZI

I think I'm yet to do a list without Lightning Bolt on it.
11Youth of Today
Break Down The Walls

Oldie but goldie.
14Gustav Holst
The Planets, Op. 32


Mars, Bringer of War - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0bcRCCg01I

Goes balls deep every time.
15Future of the Left
Curses


The Lord Hates A Coward - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSAlo_FYc_w

Haha look at that hair.
16Arab on Radar

My Mind Is A Muffler - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iW-gnbgZlso

Statement of intent.
17Bobby Prince
Doom


E1M1 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSsfjHCFosw

Because I can't get any DRI openers on this list.
18Ministry
The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste


Thieves - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhLd18Xg6x0

Better opener than NWO, fight me.
19Nile
In Their Darkened Shrines


The Blessed Dead - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRDqYZ-MYxw

23Sodom
Persecution Mania


Nuclear Winter - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvv8j5OCFQY

Someone described this as "a fucker of a song". They're right. Right enough that Among The Weirdcong doesn't make the list.

27Slayer
