Egyptian gods are a big part of understanding ancient Egyptian culture, and they're about as cool as gods can get. Ra, Horus, Anubis, Sekhmet, Osiris, Isis and others, are part human, part animal deities that could not have been more interesting if created by the very best Hollywood storytellers.
These Egyptian gods have not gone unnoticed by songwriters, and metal bands seem to have a fond attraction to them. Well, with all the embalming, over-the-top tombs, and freaky, half-animal representations I suppose it makes sense that metal heads are fans.
For this playlist I've selected metal songs, or metal bands that are in some way linked with an Egyptian god.
