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

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.

Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.

You know its true, bunny rabbits we have got lovely little fluffy bottoms. We do. That's why people often mistake us for Danny Devito.
