Recommend me of songs that you know in heavy metal (preferred) and power metal (acceptable), which would have following characteristic:

- Mid-tempo (very preferred), and not fast singing
- Emotional: no cheesy feeling, I would prefer sad or like struggling emotion.
- Songs-like:
Bruce Dickison - Tears Of Dragon (very fond of, it meets what I need, would like to be recommended similar)
HammerFall - Glory to The Brave
HammerFall - I Believe
Manowar - Heart of Steel (perfect music and vocal to the requirement)
Dragonland - Forever Walking Alone (its emotion is no doubt, the song just is fast but still acceptable same stuff)

Share similar songs and your view. Thanks for the recommendation.

Sad and struggling? Hm, I'd go with just about any doom metal, try Warning's Watching From a Distance... then ask Marcel for more.

Queensryche - Breaking The Silence

Scorpions - Holiday , We'll Burn The Sky , No One Like You

Bathory - One Rode To Asa Bay (i do consider it within the sub-genre heavy metal)

Blind Guardian - Lord Of The Rings , Nightfall

UDO - Holy , Vendetta

Demons And Wizards - Fiddler On The Green (if you like Heart of Steel you'll love this one too)

I was thinking the same. I always considered Warnig to be slow. Almost funreal doom paced at times.

Warning is very mid tempo and slow, I would put Warning on my this desirable list as recommended. Only that the Warning vocal somewhat less "tough", more on like "whining" which is not that I want. Btw, can any doomster tell me what are lyric themes of Warning about ?


Well, I need "sad-struggling" songs that have a tough feeling in its music wholly, just simply described as mid-tempo with the such genre. Though betterly, if dont mind your time listening to the songs I mention for the seeking of recommendation, especially Tear of Dragon, or 2ndly, Heart Of Steel. It is like for songs orientation-recommending. Some of recommeded of above meets, but just few, keep on ...

You recommend Judas Priest for something like this and don't include "Victim of Changes" or "Beyond the Realms of Death"?

I'm certain is was just a momentary lapse.

"Diamonds and Rust" is actually a Joan Baez song written about Bob Dylan. Still a great tune.

Sad and struggling?



Nah, there's definitely a girl involved. She liked those songs, and he wants more, don't you

Speaking of Judas Priest - 70% of songs on 'Nostradamus' fit your needs.

@Valentine: I disagree on Scorions's No One Like You and We'll Burn The Sky. Nightfall is somewhat not bad to requirement. Bathory - One Road To Asa Bay is very excellent recommendation thanks.

@Angelic Storm: how could I not remember Angra, nice recommendation and also unintentional reminding . By the way, do you why they name a song as Lisbon, It is good song with very emotional lyric but why it is "Lisbon" ?

Listen to Deep Cold, by Omnium Gatherum. The ending of that song is some of the most emotional sounding metal I've ever heard.

I would definetely suggest Atlantean Kodex. Great epic heavy/doom metal. Rainbow is a no-brainer. Tarot has an amazing song called Iron Stars, even if the band is generally lackluster. (It should be their own track, though it might be a cover.) Heaven & Hell made a good album, Atom And Evil was especially enjoyable. Astral Doors is a great heavy band, check out Bastard Son or something.

On the little doomier side, I'd also recommend Solstice, Candlemass, the first few albums of DoomSword, Las Cruces, While Heaven Wept of course (The Furthest Shore is epic).

I think it's interesting you mention the same songs that I am inspired of when I write music (except from Dragonland). Sadly I haven't recorded anything yet, but I wish to make a whole album in that kind of music. Other songs I've been inspired of are
Dio - Don't talk to strangers
Iron Maiden - Revelation
Stratovarius - Dream with me

I don't know if it's been suggested before or not, but maybe *Black River* by Amorphis is what you are looking for.

Priest's Beyond The Realms Of Death. It's my favorite song. Iron Maiden's Children Of The Damned is very emotional too.
