Top Ten Most Underrated Nu Metal Ballads


The Top Ten

1 Awkward Silence - Twisted Method

Andrew Howard may be dead now, but those guitar tones in this song make this probably my favorite nu metal ballad ever. It's so serene. - NuMetalManiak

2 Suffocate - Crossfade

One of the most haunting songs ever made, shame that so many people have never heard this one. - NuMetalManiak

3 Relapse - 40 Below Summer

I could fill this list with 40 Below Summer tunes honestly. Really sweet song, only problem is the bad sound quality which is on the entire album. - NuMetalManiak

4 Fatal Fall - Flaw

Good lord I talk about this album too much. It's just the greatest comeback for a nu metal band ever. And this ballad is just perfect. - NuMetalManiak

Beautiful ballad from an otherwise unknown band. - NuMetalManiak

Like 40 Below Summer, Sevendust is extremely underrated, but I tend to listen to this soundtrack track for my favorite Sevendust ballad. - NuMetalManiak

Acoustic ballad to conclude one of nu metal's heaviest albums. - NuMetalManiak
