Most Underrated Metal Balladsgemcloben
The Top Ten
Overall I find this an underrated song, but at the same time this is the least underrated Testament ballad out of the five (The Ballad, The Legacy, Return to Serenity, Trail of Tears, Cold Embrace) - Alkadikce
It's in the shadow of Nothing Else Matters and Fade To Black, but overall this is a very well known song and I wouldn't call it underrated. - Metal_Treasure
A very beautiful and sad ballad. Great vocal performance giving chills (Hansi Kürsch).
Real story behind the lyrics: the singer & lyricist saw two car accidents in one week and two kids were killed - a boy and a girl.
In the song this story goes like that: Death took the life of the boy by mistake and to make up for it, the reaper also took the life of the girl, who his soulmate would have been in life. The reaper talks to the girl: "Would you mind if take you? "... - Metal_Treasure
This ballad has several official audio versions but the best one is on the official video. - Metal_Treasure
One of the best songs ever written and performed.
Blind Guardian fans appreciate the song but outside this fanbase it is practically obscure. This ballad is so damn good that every metalhead deserves to hear it.
Classy, exquisite ballad. Great guitars and vox, too (Joe Lynn Turner). - Metal_Treasure
Maybe this is the most nostalgic ballad for a gorgeus and underrated band.
Magnificent start to finish - 8 min eargasm ... - Metal_Treasure
The first ever metal ballad
Fantastic, but quite morbid
This is a love song but it's really very dark - it's about a man whose wife is terminally ill, and he assists her suicide, and ends up killing himself.
A breathtaking vocal performance by the incredible Hansi Kürsch - emotive, expressive and divine tone. It's difficult to write and perform a love ballad without sounding cheesy. Yet, this song proves it's possible. Nothing's fake here and I believe every single word/note (credits to Jon Schaffer and Hansi Kürsch). - Metal_Treasure
A hidden gem - released way after their peak, this beautiful song remained unnoticed. - Metal_Treasure
An underrated Megadeth ballad would be Promises or 13. - Alkadikce
I don't think it's underrated. Every metal fan knows this song. And it's #4 on the list of best metal ballads (Top Tens). How is this underrated? - Metal_Treasure
Love this song. Especially the original version. - IronSabbathPriest
Not really underrated - 1) usually appears in the top 5 metal ballads; 2) every metalhead has heard of it. - Metal_Treasure
Wait this song is a ballad? It’s not underrated though. - Userguy44
See the blind man...
One of the most beautiful and powerful ballads but very underrated. - Metal_Treasure
Not really underrated - usually appears in the top 10 ballads (metal and non-metal lists). It's #8 on the list of best metal ballads (Top Tens) and also here #8 most underrated. This is plain ridiculous. - Metal_Treasure
Chills all the way.
BEST BALLAD EVER!
Motorhead are not a metal band. Listen to Lemmy - he says the same: not metal. - Metal_Treasure
This song is so epic!
If somebody wanna venture beyond the conventional ballads in EN, this would be a great start (in Finnish).
I don't understand a single word but the vocals are so amazing that I don't need lyrics to get the mood (Jarkko Ahola is an awesome young singer).
Teräksen Taakka = Burden of Steel, but even without translation you will get that heavy feel because the singer perfectly communicates the message of the song. - Metal_Treasure
It's strange that some of the most popular ballads also appear on the list of underrated ballads. This way songs that are really underrated are underrated even on the list of the underrated songs...
Cemetery Gates is #5 on the list of best metal ballads (Top Tens) and here again #5 most underrated... There is something wrong with this list.
A Tout Le Monde, The Unforgiven, Snuff and Cemetery Gates are NOT underrated and shouldn't be on this list, let alone Top 5 (if you know the meaning of underrated; If you don't - just scroll down and you will see awesome ballads you've never heard of). - Metal_Treasure
Maybe it's heavier than a usual ballad. This song is very emotional. Indescribable, passionate, amazing vocals (of course, Hansi Kürsch never fails).
Great mix of acoustic and electric guitars. - Metal_Treasure
Michael Kiske - perfect crystal voice. The song is a bit cheesy to my taste but I mostly enjoy the vocals. - Metal_Treasure
One of my all time favourites. - Userguy44
Underrated band, underrated ballad.
One of the most emotive metal ballads and one of the greatest vocal performances in metal.
There's only one metal ballad that moves me so much - Beyond the Realms of Death by Judas Priest. - Metal_Treasure
Unbelievable vocals! Hands down.
Great music and lyrics with deep meaning, and one of the best vocal performances in metal. - Metal_Treasure
Another beautiful and sad ballad in Finnish by Jarkko Ahola. His voice is just divine - powerful and emotional. I hope one day he will get the credits he deserves. - Metal_Treasure
Another beautiful and powerful ballad; Jarkko Ahola - flawless vox again. - Metal_Treasure
I added this. This song takes you to a whole 'nother world and I loved it so much I couldn't stop listening to it. - NuMetalManiak
Very beautiful. Mikael Åkerfeldt - great job!. - Metal_Treasure
