I went to the doctor, and they found something in my bladder. And whenever they find something, it's never anything good like, "We found something in your bladder AND IT'S SEASON TICKETS TO THE YANKEES!!

Do you folks like folk?

Just wanted to add my two cents with a couple of sad songs. I didn't see the songs I'm thinking of on the thread, but I didn't read the bloody huge thing in the first place.

Avenged Sevenfold- So Far Away

Slipknot- Snuff

So Far Away brought a tear to my eye, and Snuff is just plain sad.

For Slipknot, you could maybe add Vermilion Pt. 2, but I don't feel sad listening to it. Honestly, I just get bored.

Seize The Day by Avenged isn't necessarily sad, but I don't get super happy listening to it, either.

Just my two cents. Aaaaaaaaaanywho, I got places to be and people to see.

Stay sexy!

Way to necropost... and those bands are about as devoid of real emotional content as my cold dead heart.

Now Lumbar, an autobiographical album about a dude suffering from multiple sclerosis... now that's fuqing sad.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

Pallbearer's cover of gloomy sunday is pretty depressing.

As for an original song, Prison of Mirrors by Xasthur is a depressing song.

I don't know how this thread was even found after four years and 361 days (leap year), but now it's an interesting topic on the first page.

Do we want to restrict ourselves to songs that qualify as metal? By this, I mean that an acoustic ballad by doesn't count, even if the band is typically metal. I like this plan, because it makes us have to reconcile the truly sad with the kickass nature of metal music. (I would allow for something semi-calm like Wasting Love, which I thought was a great selection a few pages back, or Fade to Black.)

Sabachthani - Josephine Sleeper: (4th song)

Not just depressing/gloomy, but utterly sad.


My Dying Bride - Two Winters Only

Another kind of sadness, and a damned sad one at that.

Just trying to break the pattern of thrash/heavy metal band's softer songs and Agalloch + Warning Not that they aren't damned great as well!

Man! Forgot about My Dying Bride. That takes me back. How about True belief -- Paradise lost?

All those bands that sound like Insomnium should just be called "melodic sad metal".

Case in point:
Wolfheart - Gale Of Winter

Be'lakor - The Dream And The Waking

Omnium Gatherum - Who Could Say

Before The Dawn - Deadsong
