Heavy on the Syrup: The Best Metal Ballads


When you think of bands like Megadeth, Accept and Judas Priest, ballads may not be the first thing to cross your mind. But sometimes, if you are in a mellow mood but still want music that has a certain intensity, these bands have just the thing you need. We're not talking sappy big hair power ballads here... well, not for the most part anyway. These ballads are mostly rooted in more traditional metal styles that allow the most frantic headbanger to listen without hanging their head in shame.
