Best Metal Ballads


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Communion and the Oracle - Symphony X
82 The Clouding - Iced Earth
83 A Question of Heaven - Iced Earth

It's so amazing, Matt Barlow's vocals are the best on this one. It has the best ending for a ballad the vocals at the end are supreme no one can sing this song like Barlow. This song needs to be in top 5

84 Trail of Broken Hearts - DragonForce

This song has all the attributes of a metal ballad, plus an extremely engaging and inspired solo. Try it!

85 Wander - Kamelot

Amazing track within one of the best(if not the best) power metal albums out there.
Give it a try

86 Believe - Savatage

One of the most powerful, heartfelt metal songs ever made. Should easily be number one.

One of the best songs of all time

87 Delirium - Epica

Beautiful piano and soft-sweet sound of Simone Simon, you must hear this song :D

88 I Won't See You Tonight Part 1 - Avenged Sevenfold
89 Melancholy - Iced Earth
90 Ohne Dich - Rammstein
91 Far From Home - Five Finger Death Punch

An incredibly emotional song. I love it to its core.

92 Endless Rain - X Japan

I know you may have heard people say this many times, but I believe this deserves to be higher in the list. I haven't heard all the other songs, but I do believe this song deserves recognition.

93 Sleeping Sun - Nightwish

Sleeping Sun? You've got to be kidding me. No way in the world should Sleeping Sun be this low. Sure, the original off Oceanborn is not so great but has anyone heard the remake in 2005? Absolutely OUTSTANDING song. This deserves so much more recognition than it is given.

94 Crimson Day - Avenged Sevenfold
95 Courage - Manowar

The sweetest song from Manowar... Must be on top ten..
