Me personally enjoy almost every metal ballad. Those by Nightwish are great, Iron Maiden (or Bruce Dickinson self) have good ones, but by me is currently winning Manowar with Courage...how about you?

In my opinion, possibly the best metal ballad ever is "Silent Lucidity" by Queensryche.

I like to say 'Guardian' by Fates Warning. From start to finish this is epic, cheesy but brilliant. The tempo change is kickass and smooth. I love Jon Arch's vocals too, just a classic metal sound.

Most of the metal ballads I enjoy are by power metal bands.
Like;
Gamma Ray - Lake Of Tears
Angra - Bleeding Heart
Stratovarius - Forever
Sonata Arctica - Good Enough Is Good Enough
Nevermore - The Heart Collector
Cradle Of Filth - Nymphetamine
Ace Frawley
The Spaceman

I was going to say that as well. It's a great song. I remember when it came out but I wasn't that impressed back then.

Hard Rock, but man I Love "No One Like You" by The Scorpions. My Favourite hard rock song ever. It's impossible not to air guitar to it.

Metallica, Iron Maiden, Bruce Dickinson, Fates Warning or Queensryche all of them have good ballads. "Nothing Else Matters", "Silent Lucidity", "Journeyman" for example. But all of the bands I mentioned have great ballads in some of their albums.

Kamelot's Abandoned and On The Coldest Winter Night. Anathema's Forgotten Hopes and My Dying Bride's Black God are perfect, too

Just remembered that Evergrey have a gift to write ballads. It also helps that Tom S. Englund can pretty much do what he wants with his beautiful and unique voice.

Two of the most brilliant examples:

Words Mean Nothing (from Solitude, Dominance, Tragedy)
I'm Sorry (from Recreation Day)

Devin Townsend has some good ones, Deadhead and Nobody's Here come to mind immediately. Kamelot's Abandoned is indeed incredible if my memory serves!

Not sure if it's strictly a ballad, but Godflesh's Anthem is pretty amazing.

I'm Sorry is a cover.

I don't really have an extensive knowledge of their work, but I do like ...And the Distance.

Nah, just a couple of songs off each of their albums. I love their style though, A Touch of Blessing and Blinded were two of my metal gateway songs.
