Best Metal Ballads


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Legenda Wyśniona - Kat V 1 Comment
62 Love Me Forever - Motörhead

Super powerful!

63 Last Rose of Summer - Judas Priest
64 Forever and One - Helloween

Never listened to Helloween all that much (a Maiden fan most of all), but after hearing this song, I can safely say it is THE best ballad out there. No Metallica, Maiden or even Judas ballads come even close. One has to be honest.

LOVE this song. Glad someone put it in this list.

This the best! If you don't like it

65 Heart of Steel - Manowar

It is the best metal ballad ever! But Manowar has the ballad, batter than this. It is The Master Of The Wind! This two ballads the best in hole world!

This ballad simply kicks ass. Eric's vocals are at his best in my opinion.


66 Fear Of The Dark - Iron Maiden

Best song of the best metal band ever. A real anthem. Saw them live and still can't forget this day.

Maybe the best ever made!

One of the best

67 Promises - Megadeth V 1 Comment
68 Tears of the Dragon - Bruce Dickinson
69 Journeyman - Iron Maiden
70 Master of the Wind - Manowar
71 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica

Fantastic lyrics, makes you want to break out of your cell... even though you're just at home listening to music - Songsta41

You can feel mental insanity of the character in this song

For me this is Metallica's best song with the best lyrics. Only cemetery gates and in my darkest hour come somewhat close to this song

Unbelievable, one of the most important songs they have done.

This needs to be higher than 69...

72 So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is about 77 places too high on this list.

73?... What is not perfect in this song?

73 The Day That Never Comes - Metallica

Great Riffs and big Movie!

74 To Bid You Farewell - Opeth

This should be rank 1! this takes you away from where ever you are.

75 Mutter - Rammstein
76 Lake of Tears - Gamma Ray

One of the most beautiful ballads! Must listen

77 Black Diamond - Stratovarius
78 Łza Dla Cieniów Minionych - Kat
79 The Islander - Nightwish

The Islander is this low? Nothing Nightwish has ever created should be this low! Nightwish is the best metal band of all time. And the Islander should be at least in the top 5 of this list! The Islander not only has outstanding music but amazingly intelligent, deep lyrics. No way The Islander can be this low.

80 Until it Sleeps - Metallica
