Top 10 Best Depressing Rock-Metal SongsThe most depressing songs from incredible artists like Yngwie Malmsteen and Dragonforce
The Top Ten
Amazing vocals - could be one of the best vocal performances of all time.
These are my last words-I need to rest
In fear and anger, I'll lay down my head
A faithless spirit in a broken man
Don't wait for me on the other side
This is truly a pure masterpiece by Malmsteen. The melodic interlude in the middle makes for incredible outpouring of feelings.
Black Star (Yngwie) may have more depressing potential than Opus 5 in my opinion, and also Voice of the Soul (Death, Chuck Schuldiner instrumental).
This is a masterpiece for sure but it's never been depressing to me.
The best vocals I've ever heard - this guy is unbelievable!
In a world of broken dreams
Depressed and haunting me
No way out
So many times it's hopeless dark and gray
No way out
And other times it's hope that saves the day
I'm not sure this song is really depressing but it's very individual I guess.
James Hetfield wrote this love song while he was on the phone with his then girlfriend. The lyrics, which talk about being "so close, no matter how far" indicate the bond they shared even when Hetfield was on tour.
This song is about the power of love (and many other things).
Great song and I love it. But it always reminds me of my mother dying - sextysex
