Top 10 Metal Songs About Love that Aren't Ballads


The Top Ten

1 Ghost Love Score - Nightwish Ghost Love Score - Nightwish

Many believe that this song is about how much Tuomas Holopainen loved Tarja Turunen (they were band mates, she left). But maybe it is a romantic relationship that never happened ("ghost"). Who knows. Great song though. Tuomas wrote it, Tarja sang it. - Metal_Treasure

2 Intra Venus - Ne Obliviscaris Intra Venus - Ne Obliviscaris

Venus is a Roman goddess of love.
Band lyricist said it's generally about love but also about death and grief when the loved ones die. - Metal_Treasure

3 Dracula - Iced Earth Dracula - Iced Earth

Only the intro is slow - after that it's fast without slowing down.
"Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in destiny?
True love may come
Only once in a thousand lifetimes
I too have loved, they took her from me
I prayed for her soul
I prayed for her peace

When I close my eyes
I see her face, it comforts me
When I close my eyes
Memories cut like a knife" - Metal_Treasure

4 Is that You, Melissa - Mercyful Fate

Oh Melissa, you're in my dreams
You're with me every day
Oh Melissa, do you remember
The time we shared?

Do you remember the magic nights?
I will never forget your smile
Do you remember the love we had?
Oh, the love we had - Metal_Treasure

5 Lunar Lament - Demons & Wizards

It's about two characters from Tolkien's The Silmarillion - Maia Tilion and the woman he loves (Arien). Maia Tilion travels across the sky driving the Moon Ship while Arien drives the Sun Ship. But when he approaches, her fire hurts him and he's unhappy:

"I'm existing hopelessly
'Cause I can't reach the sun

Darkness covers me
My soul has yet to long
I'm looking for serenity
'Cause I can't reach the sun

It's all I long for
The heat of the sun
It's all I long for
What I'm wishing for is the blessing
Of the sun" - Metal_Treasure

6 A Girl Called Cerveza - Tankard

A funny thrash metal song.
"Yesterday I met her, the woman of my dreams
She looked so fine, through bottles of cheap wine
So we drank together" - Metal_Treasure

7 House of Sleep - Amorphis
8 Queen in Love - Yngwie Malmsteen

Queen is in love, yeah, yeah, yeah
But she couldn't help her burning heart
And now he's burning too
Their love was blind they will dance until
The end of time - Metal_Treasure

9 Girl In the Slayer Jacket - Pig Destroyer
10 When Sorrow Sang - Blind Guardian

This song is about two characters from Tolkien's The Silmarillion - Beren who loves LĂșthien, the Elven princess. - Metal_Treasure
