    So I'm trying to add to my metal workout playlist. Specifically instrumental songs that are very driving sounding that gets me all pumped. Anyone got any suggestions? So far I only have:

    Archspire - The Kairos Chamber
    Abnormality - Catalyst of Metamorphosis

    Metal playlist? You're doing it all wrong. There's only three songs you need and it's these.

    Nothing else.

    Hmmm I have different take.

    Going to the gym: Epic music (Two Steps From Hell)
    In the actual gym: Aggressive stuff (Iced Earth)
    After the gym: Reggae

    EDIT: added some stuff, for some reason I like IE as workout music..

    I can't listen to metal when I work out, unless it is some kind of industrial version in the style of early Fear Factory and early Rammstein.

    I really enjoy training with the Les Mills soundtrack. Did a couple of rounds of Les Mills combat back then, and the music was so good I could have trained for hours and hours without feeling down or fatigued. Now I use those songs for every cardio workout.

    I can't lift big weights any more, after a back injury, but I tended to be music free, as I like to focus on my heartbeat and breathing rhythm.

    In all seriousness no workout soundtrack is complete with out these three gems of songs:









    Depending on how metrosexual you are you may want to add some ABBA to your workout playlist.

    I don't think anything gets my blood pumping faster than Insect Warfare while at the gym.

    All that remains. So catchy. I only listen to straight bangers.

    Children of Bodom
    Unearth
    Katy Perry - be careful with pop songs, you may sing it out loud when the place is silent
    Tiger Army
    Most AFI
    The Absence

    Epic soundtracks and metal are great for working out.
    Combine the two and all of a sudden you're lifting some heavy ass weight.

    I've been working out almost daily for 25 years. Lately it's Benighted, Origin, and other grind-type bands that get me amped up. But old Sick of It All and Agnostic Front are also good.

    I like a nice slice of metallic hardcore for my workouts:

    Stampin' Ground
    Sworn Enemy
    Merauder
    Full Blown Chaos
    Knuckledust
    etc.

    Or some Rollins Band always gets me fired up.

    As a poster above said, you can never go wrong with Amon Amarth at the gym.

    To answer your OP more specifically, the first instrumental song that popped in my head was "Man Made God" by In Flames. Should get your blood pumping!! In fact, add any early In Flames to your gym playlist as well.
