well, a topic where you can post which are, in your opinion, the most depressive, tearbringing ballads.
I'll say that "Glory to the brave" by hammerfall, and (though it's not actually a ballad), Ghost love score by Nightwish are really depressive songs.

Luna by Moonspell


I don't find that to be depressive at all. I just see Luna as a cheesy song. But maybe that's because it played it Portugal non-stop.


If we talk about Moonspell, bets ''ballad'' can be Opium even its not so depresive, IMO Moonspell has more depresive lyrics how music, and Fernando is in My NR.1 in list whit whoom I wanna drink red wine

I think I find it depressive is because I was going through a rough divorce when I first heard it, and from then on I kind of relate that song to that particular period of my life.

I can understand that. I just think that the radio play ruined that song for me, I can't listen to it objectively.

''Through Her Eyes'' from Dream Theater's Scenes From A Memory is simply the saddest thing i've heard so far.

The most depressing song i know is clearly "shape of deaspair-...to live for my death..."...the whole thing of being and living is just reduced as a road straight to death, nothing less or more.

Anything by Opeth gets me.

And of course Fade to Black by Metallica, which is probably their best ballad.

I'm feeling a bit low at the time of this post, and the song "I Will Remember" by Queensrÿche happens to be playing in my mind right now.

I could list songs from pretty much every style of metal out there, but none of them even come close to Anathema's One Last Goodbye. Made doubly sad by the story behind it.
