The Top Ten
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
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
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
A hidden gem - released way after their peak, this beautiful song remained unnoticed. - Metal_Treasure
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
One of the most beautiful and powerful ballads but very underrated. - Metal_Treasure
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. - IronSabbathPriestV 1 Comment
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.
Motorhead are not a metal band. Listen to Lemmy - he says the same: not metal. - Metal_Treasure
