The Bard's Song by Blind Guardian


owenthebarbarian

As I have said before on a similar thread, this is the objectively correct answer.


Yarrrrr

I objectively disagree 🙃


FreezenXl

tomorrow will take us away


tomenas94

Far from home


FreezenXl

No one will ever know our names


rexolboy8

but the bard's songs will remain


ChasingPesmerga

Avantasia - Farewell Galneryus - The Wind Blows Shadow Gallery - Destination Unknown (Prog)


FreezenXl

Farewell is one of my all time favorites. As well as Forever and One (Helloween)


tkdyo

Forevermore by Derdian is my fave. The one from New Era part 3, not the redone version on Revolution Era. Trail of Broken Hearts by Dragonforce A Soldiers Letter by Fairyland Yggdrasil by Brothers of Metal A Rose for Epona by Eluveitie


Bilberry12

Came here to say “Yggdrasil”


Yarrrrr

Elvenking - forget me not Nightwish - the islander


Revannchist

Magic of the Wizard's Dream and Son of Pain by Rhapsody.


hectoByte

Magic of the Wizards Dream is really good. Especially the version with Christopher Lee.


Revannchist

Thats the one I always listen to, also the German and French versions are even better even tho I don't know a word from those languages.


DarksidenicoXII

Hammerfall: glory to the brave Iced earth (b4 jon became misguided): watching over me Blind guardian: the bard song


over9003ish

I was going to see if anyone else commented glory to the brave :)) very good one


themiraclemaker

Why do people care about jons political leanings when it comes to value his music? Like you can separate the artist from the person pretty easily, and they are objectively one of the more popular and iconic bands in the scene. It's really a shame seeing quality music getting stigmatized. Like nobody gives a fuck about Red Army Music being used by, well, the Red army because you can strictly enjoy the music and the music only. Listening red army music doesn't mean you are a Stalinist or anything


jerperz

There's been a few threads where this has been discussed, just search his name and you'll find them if you wanna know.

TheLawfulWaffle

Ghost in the rain! Could listen for days.

headlesscircus

Shaman - fairy tale Heavenly - Dust to dust Angra - reaching horizons Edu Falaschi - skies in your eyes Don't know if the Last one really counts as a ballad/slower song tho


dokaxi

The live version of Fairy Tale gives me chills every time, Andre Matos was an amazing live performer.


PoisonMind

I just discovered [Serenity - Wings of Madness](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2QH9L42OY0) and it's been stuck in my head now, too.


StardustOasis

Georg has a fantastic voice to be fair. His other bands are worth a listen, but not as good as Serenity.


PoisonMind

Yeah, when I heard the song come on, I thought it was Tommy Karevik, and being mistaken for him is a compliment in itself! Clementine is great here, too. I only recently discovered her, too, through Exit Eden and Visions of Atlantis. Did she do more work with Georg or was this a one-off collaboration?


StardustOasis

She was only in Serenity for the one album, War of Ages, I believe. I don't think they've ever worked together elsewhere unfortunately.


DasGrimmies

Brothers of Metal - Weaver of Fate


ConsiderationNo2047

Love this song


seyretmedana61

Anthem to the Estranged-Metal Church


curious_dead

I really don't like ballads in general. One of the few ballads I do like is Sonata Arctica's Shy.


AniquelMD

shamandalie, broken - sonata arctica The bard song, spread your wings - blind guardian El que quiera entender que entienda - mago de oz Ella, mujer amante - rata blanca


spicyfreshmilk

I enjoy Shamandalie, but the end ruins it for me. It just kind of disrupts the vibe.

Confusionisreally

Crimson glory - Painted Skies


pattyobrien36

Rainbow-stargazer


plazasta

Fairyland - The Storyteller and Rebirth are the main ones that come to mind

hectoByte

Calling a lot of these ballads seems like a stretch.


theslyturtle

Basically all of Opera Oblivia by Hellions


seklin278

"Secret Garden" by Angra and Simone Simons "Willow of Tears" by Amberian Dawn "Down in a Hole" by In Flames (Alice in Chains cover) "Wide Awake" by Lacuna Coil "Into Your Light" by Leaves' Eyes "Hurt" by NIN "Strong" by After Forever "Aeon's Embrace" by Sirenia "Utopia" by Within Temptation


hectoByte

[Hammerfall - Restless Soul](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLEMXUxAcYY) It seems to get slept on, as it was a bonus track on the Steel Meets Steel compilation album. But it is really good and easily one of my favorite ballads.
