I'm only including true metal ballads, not hair metal pop ballads. Of all of these, I'd say LitW, ToBH, F2B, and WOM are my absolute favorites, but I really like the rest too. Fade to Black is my number one.

Black Sabbath - Lonely is the Word
Bruce Dickinson - Navigate The Seas Of The Sun
Dio - I Could Have Been A Dreamer
DragonForce - Trail Of Broken Hearts
DragonForce - Starfire
Dream Theater - Another Day
Iced Earth - Watching Over Me
Iron Maiden - Wasting Love
Judas Priest - Angel
Megadeth - A Tout Le Monde
Metallica - Fade to Black
Metallica - One *If it counts*
Metallica - Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
Ozzy Osbourne - Diary of a Madman
Pantera - Cemetery Gates
Queensr˙che - Silent Lucidity *Not really a true metal ballad, but I like this song so yeah.*
Scorpions - Still Loving You *Same with this one*
Slipknot - Vermilion pt. 2
Sonata Arctica - Replica

Honorable Mention: S.O.D. - The Ballad of Jimi Hendrix :rocker:

Skid Row - Quicksand Jesus
Iced Earth - Watching Over Me
Dio - As Long As It's Not About Love
Pantera - Cemetery Gates
Queensryche - Another Rainy Night (Without You)

There are definitely some more...

I love that song. The haters can suck it.

And nice honorable mention, though I personally prefer the Ballad of Kurt Cobain.

I don't think a lot of these songs count as ballads. Just because a metal band records a song with dynamics (acoustic guitars, piano, softer parts) in addition to the heavy parts, doesn't make it a ballad.

Iron Maiden - Blood Brothers
Stone Sour - Bother, Through Glass, Hesitate

And the grestest ballads of all time, metal or otherwise, is of course, the entire Phil Collins solo catalogue.. RIGHTEOUS

I have always thought a ballad is a song lamenting someone or something. hence me choosing Blood Brothers by Iron Maiden.

Judas Priest- Beyond The Realms of Death
Glad to see more people appreciate that ballad. Thats probably my favorite priest song of all time. So dark and haunting...

I think The Unforgiven by Metallica is the ultimate ''metal ballad''.
Angels Don't Kill by Children Of Bodom is great too. It's kind of like a black metal ballad :light:

Children of the Damned.

Absolutely love that song. Not sure I'd consider it a ballad but if so it would be in my Top 5.

Personally I think Faith No More - Evidence is musical genius and definitely one of my favorite ballads.

Escape from Within from Flotsam & Jetsam would be up there also.

If I had to choose a hair band type song it would be The Price by Twisted Sister. Never a big TS fan but always liked that song
