Hi all!

I love being caught by surprise by a metal song, and some of them did it by throwing an oddly awesome dance beat: I would like to know more cases of the use of this technique

Some examples on top of my head:
Melez's intro by Therion, From Beyond's harmonized solo by Enforcer, the insane intro of Chromium Sun by Virus...

Thanks!

um, I never would have thought of Melez as having a dance beat (plenty of "classic" metal tracks have a similar intro), so I'm not sure I get what you're after, bue here's a few:

Amorphis have a a dance music "segment" in Cares, an awesome song that also incorporates polka and death metal :D

have you heard Pain? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwCe9cXGrp0 cool video, too :D

and I always thought of Nighwish's I wish I had an angel as having an (annoying) disco beat.

I'm not sure if this is what you're after, but it's the first thing I thought of.

Thank you all! I'll start to check what i'm not familiar with

Probably i was not clear enough, i'll try better: what i'm searching for is the open-closed hi-hat beat the first in the intro of Virus's Chromium Sun)
