In music, there isn’t lack for the love song. Chalk it up to being a subject that’s easy to write about and that just about everyone can relate to it. But, being the dissident that it is, happy-go-lucky love songs in metal are a rare commodity. There are plenty of songs about love breaking ones heart and decimating your ex-girlfriend with a battle-axe or a brotherly love kinda thing, but on the subject of traditional love between two people is far and few in between. And when a metal band does write a love song it usually shows the band taking a turn for the cheesy ballad style or going all sappy like Extreme’s “More Than Words”.
Here I have made up a playlist of heavy metal love songs ranging from black metal to traditional metal to ballads. This was a more daunting task than I thought it would be at first so I had a little help from my friends on the THOM group (Thanks!). Even though there are some bittersweet songs here I tried to focus on fun ones and ones with more of a happy ending. I hope you and your special someone can make some sweet metal head love under starlight to these songs. I would like to dedicate this post to my beautiful, awesome, smart, and amazing wife. Ti amo tantissimo! Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!
