Wasn't Fade to Black mentioned? I like their acoustic intros on MOP and RTL as well...always have.
I'm not as big on Maiden, but in terms of interludes, I always like the break in the middle of "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son"! colgate.gif

Slayer - Raining Blood
Megadeth - Peace Sells
Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
Anthrax - Among The Living
Metallica - For Whom The Bell Tolls

And this is just staying in the domain of mid-1980s metal. \m/

There are too many songs to name with cool intros.

For sheer gusto, REO SpeedWagon's "Back On The Road Again" When you hear the intro, you know you're in for a treat.

I always liked "She Doesn't Like the Tough guys" too, it was openly humorous which you didn't get on commercial radio too often!

I'd say Megadeth's Holy Wars, what a lightning riff opening that is!!!

Again, today I was recalling Herr Schenker starting off the song "Rock Bottom" from U F O.
Another intro that sticks out like a swollen thumb!

If you like Finch look for a band named Rise Against.
My best intro is GnR Sweet Child.. I'm always too drunk to learn how Kariokie is spelled, but it's my weapon of choice!

Also Sympathy for the Devil by The Rolling Stones had a great intro. Apparently Jane's Addiction have done a version of the song which is just as good as the Stone's version. I keep meaning to look it up.



(edit- my computer skill are sh*tty but it's on youtube for anyone wants to look it up.)

Transmission by Statix-X is also a sort of short song, that's quite good, not like a normal interlude.

Epicly, it's hard to forget '44. Caliber Love Letter' by Alexisonfire, in my opinion, just form the musicaly side that I'm into. I really dig From Autumn To Ashes' 'Sugar Wolf' too, it's had a lot of time on it. I hate how underground abnds try to copy that style and start with a ripping intro that usually ends up in chords and a chugging base, it doesn't work.

@Starion...
A better Alice In Chains Intro can be found in the Arnold Schwazenneger film Last Action Hero;

What The Hell Have I?

Kick ass, as well as "Would?"

But for Pink Floyd, good choice. On The Turning Away and Money are both memorable opening sequences...and
Just listening again, Planet P Project with Toney Carey has "Why Me?" on his first outing, even a video on YouTube!! I was unaware there was one.

<- Live DVD Xcerpt

...and the actual video ->
