2 I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1

The way he screams at the end... Amazing and somewhat beautiful

Amazing song... My favorite a7x song. Listen to it every night before I go to bed

One of the only songs to ever bring tears too my eyes... So perfect. So Sad. Just the way he scream a very cry from his soul, the way the piano builds, the heart wrenching solos. Not only the best slow song bu one of their best Period.

Such a strong and emotional song, damn.

3 Seize the Day

One of my favorites. It gets me every time, especially at the end.

This song is just amazing! You get the feels for this song! Every time you hear it, you would like to hear it again, listen to the lyrics and your mind will be blown! The video connects you with them so much as well.

Though it's not my favourite, I voted it because think it shouldn't be on no.7, but close to the top. It's one of the best songs and has one of the greatest solos ever!

Its got a totally different feel. Its something more than just ROCK

4 Dear God

Day by day my playlist changes...but this song...stays foREVer...

Listening to this song just takes you to another place. you forget about all movements around you. The guitar solo in it is simply incredible!
You know how some good songs just become boring after a while and you start skipping them on your playlist? Well you can't skip this one!

Nothing to say about it just too good

One of their greatest song. Deserves to be at least 2nd on this list, behind So far away.

5 Warmness on the Soul

Amazing Track one of the best... Such a beautiful lyrics and wonderful piano.. Just hear it for once it will never get out of your head... And you will never vote for anything else

Me and my ex girl friends song

Beautiful and graceful. The song is well put together and is the best song from sounding the seventh trumpet, contrasting the rest of the album.

Its make me comfort

6 Victim

Very underrated tragic song with beautiful lyrics, awesome rhythm and specially emotional when coupled with So Far Away and Fiction in the same album.

We're all just victims of a crime. My favorite slow tine of these guys by far. Hail to the King will demonstrate their superb musical adaptation

Even though it may not be their best song ever, this one is still my absolute favorite, because it touches me on a personal level when it reminds me of my little sister. I think it should be #1.

Great song, It has a great message. A7x live foREVer.

7 Fiction

It isn't my favorite, but this should at least be in the top 5, considering its meaning and circumstances

Great song, last one by The Rev. FoREVer!

I can't believe this isn't #1... It's definitely their best slow song, if not their best song. And with the importance of the song and is connection with the Rev, it makes it that much more important. Beautiful song!

Whenever I listen this song, Tears come out and seriously miss The Rev. Even he's not my blood relative, I felt very sad and like something very importance is lost! :'( RIP The Rev

8 Buried Alive

Beginning is really good

Actually this song gets pretty fast

Awesome solo and also the harmony...Beautiful! Deserve to be in the top 10

It only starts out slow but I must say it's a very great song, especially since its off the album of Nightmare.

9 Acid Rain

The best till now. The best from the album and one of the best of A7x. Slow, like a ballad with epic guitar solos. This song is one of the best works of a7x.

Definitely one of the best slow songs. Special and unique. All their slow songs are great, but this one is especially awesome because it's a waltz and there are not many rock bands out there who can write a waltz and completely rock it

Probably my favorite contemporary ballet I've ever heard

Buried Alive is a great song, but doesn't belong on here. Also, Acid Rain should be higher up on the list.

10 Clairvoyant Disease

The middle bridge gives me chills every time

Dust begins to fall to the ground, the air is cold and thin, definitely one of the best

Its really great the solo is so beautiful

This spot in hells

The Contenders

11 Shattered by Broken Dreams

Simply put, their best slow song and by far the best song on STST. If you disagree it's because you just haven't heard it. Give it a few tries and thank me later, the guitar, drumming and lyrics are so great. - A7X3DGBB

How is this so low, this song is so beautiful, the slow paced drums and the vocals are something else. Wholly underrated song

12 Gunslinger

Wayy better than dear god. If you're a fan of this band and you haven't heard this song, You need too! - danimey

For some time this was in my opinion the best A7x song.

It's such an emotional song that made me cry when I first understood the meaning of this song

Best emotional song ever

13 A Little Piece of Heaven

Should be in the top ten easy!

Literally I've heard it all from a7x but this song just stands out... The vibe they create is awesome at the same time threatening... The imagery just overwhelms you... The bass and power just teleport you to the place they do all that... Can't believe it didn't make the top ten even... This is insane...

This should've made it to the top ten, or personally, taken the lead! Although, So Far Away is a tough piece to beat... - LoveMeSomePie

One of my all time favorites

14 Until the End

The entire album this song was on is very underrated, and deserves more attention.

Sad Song From From Album Diamond In The Rough

Uyeah this song is very greats

15 Roman Sky

Why isn't this song at least number 3? or better yet in the top ten? this is not just one of the best slow songs, this is one of the best songs they have ever made PERIOD. it's my 2nd favorite a7x behind exist.

Exuse me what, why is this not top 3 - danimey

How is this not behind so far away! - danimey

This is a phenomenal song. My absolute favorite of their slower ballads, other than "So Far Away". The lyrical content and the musicianship on display just convey raw emotion about someone who was so far beyond their time in their ideas. It's absolutely beautiful.

16 Crimson Day

Should be number 1

This song should be number 1! Nice slow drum beat driving the song forward, Amazing guitar solo and the lyrics are absolutely beautiful. Also a fantastic vocal delivery by M.Shadows. If you haven't heard this song listen to it you won't regret it!

My new all time favorite a7x song. I couldn't believe that this is not in the top ten, its much better then so far away and its much more enjoyable. I've been wrong, times over, I've been sane, with no words to find, but if the sun will rise, bring us tomorrow, walk with me, Crimson day.

Best slow song on Hail to the king

17 Tonight the World Dies

I had a really hard time choosing between this song and Gunslinger, but I guess Tonight the World Dies needs more appreciation. This song is just so emotional and it's sad to see it being so underrated. - rsndazzahra

Best saddest song makes me think of my girl which I can't see no more, 2 years now and I still miss her

One of their best songs full stop. How can it be 14th. Beautiful lyrics, beautiful vocals. The emotion in Shadows voice are almost tangible. Deserves to be higher up

This song just shows how powerful Shadows' voice is. Just how he hits that note gives me goosebumps. Easily their best song for me.

Until I make it home to you"

24 Requiem

This is a really good song, but it is not slow at all. The only slow parts are the latin chants and the prayer to the dark. Its awesome, but it should not be on this list. - WolfByShadow
