The Top TenXW

1Soldier of Fortune - Deep PurpleV1 Comment
2Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits

Pretty much same as soldier of fortune. - zxm

3Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

The end of the song is quite heavy but intro and the middle part is pretty much slow. - zxm

This song is just out of this world. - Metal_Treasure

5The Bard's Song (In the Forest) - Blind GuardianV1 Comment
6Dust in the Wind - KansasV1 Comment

8Ghost of Freedom - Iced Earth

With awesome vocals from the greatest cop in the world (Matt Barlow). - Metal_Treasure

9Wind of Change - Scorpions

People love to hear the whistle more than the song - zxm

10In My Time of Need - Opeth

Amazing song. Velvety smooth clean vocals from a death metal growler. Hands down. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11Tangerine - Led ZeppelinV1 Comment
12A Past and Future Secret - Blind GuardianV1 Comment
13More Than Words - Extreme
14Billie Jean - Chris Cornell

Sometimes I think this is the best cover song ever made. Chris Cornell turned a pop song into a slow rock song. Mindblowing vocals and everything. Hands down. Moreover, this cover song doesn't have a studio version, only many live versions (including what you hear from the song sample below). Chris Cornell deserves more attention. - Metal_Treasure

15Dreaming (Tell Me) - Yngwie Malmsteen

This is probably the most exquisite song on this list - Yngwie neo-classical touch works perfectly. Also amazing vocals from Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple). - Metal_Treasure

16Hurt - Johnny CashV1 Comment
17Every Rose Has Its Thorn - Poison

This song is not that slow but the some parts of the song is slow. - zxm

18The Rain Song - Led Zeppelin
19Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards
20Sinner - Theocracy

I put this song lower on my remix only because towards the end it gets faster and heavier. But the first 4 minutes of the song are slow, beautiful and truly epic. - Metal_Treasure
