Saddest Heavy Metal Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Seven Faces - Slayer

This song is about how the seven deadly sins can change a person!

62 Holding All These Lies - Korn
63 Scarlet - In This Moment V 1 Comment
64 H. - Tool
65 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth

Amazingly heavy and sad musical tribute to Cliff Burton (even though the lyrics aren't about him)

66 Solitude - Candlemass

If you haven't heard this, you haven't experienced life then,if you love Isolation this song is for you

67 Foolin - Def Leppard
68 02 Panic Room - Riverside
69 Screaming In the Night - Krokus
70 Kitchen Ware and Candy Bars - Stone Temple Pilots
71 The Theft - Atreyu
72 Love You to Death - Kamelot

This is one of the saddest Kamelot songs I have listened to

73 2 Am
74 Life Eternal - Mayhem V 1 Comment
75 Mutter - Rammstein
76 Foam Born: Backtrack - Between the Buried and Me

Trust me, you NEED this song in your life. It's only two minutes. Trust me, reader! - ThatoneMetalhead

77 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

Don't let the funny title, badass metal riffs and Serj Tankian's crazy vocals fool you, this song is way sadder than you think it sounds. Especially in the fact that it was released around the same time 9/11 happened. Admit it, you cried at the piano parts when Serj sang about self-righteous suicide and crying on "the day that angels died".

This song is about abuse and suicide

78 Lack of Comprehension - Death
