Alright, so we've got a gig coming up at the end of the month and we need a ballad. We play stuff like NWOBHM (Priest, Maiden) and thrash metal (Metallica, Anthrax) and sometimes a bit heavier stuff. We don't have time to write another song, so I'd prefer it to be a cover. It doesn't have to be already metal, just something that you could see a metal band playing. Glam metal... I dunno, don't ask me, that's why I'm asking you.

Also, we're a power trio, so nothing with too many parts. Here's our current setlist, in no particular order:

Original
Original
Original
Take Me Out (metal)
Holy Diver (I guess close to the KSE version)
Electric Eye
Push Push Lady Lightning
Rainbow in the Dark or Mr. Brownstone

Fade to Black - Metallica?


Well the intro to that requires 2 guitars so ya...

One - Metallica. It's got a ballady feel to some bits yet its also an epic piece of metal. Just have the guitarist play the solo's and have the bass fill in the rhythm guitar (as in the opening).

That's a pretty good idea. We've played around with the idea of doing several Metallica songs, but always backed off because of the multiple guitars.

To the others, we've kicked around 18 & Life before but I didn't really like the idea. And Dream Theater... really? The bassist isn't that good and neither is the drummer.

That's not the actual order, that's what I said "in no particular order".

Alright, so we've decided that we're probably gonna do One as you suggested. However we didn't really feel it was a ballad, we figured it would be a nice last song after the ballad, a good note to go out on I guess. So keep the suggestions coming!

Alone Again by Dokken

I Remember You by Skid Row

How about a heavier version of Prince's "Purple Rain"?

The Scorpions have a few good heavy ballads - Still Loving You, When the Smoke is going down, Always Somewhere

Or, better yet, Pantera's "This Love". Slow dancing combined with violent moshing would be a sight to see.

Well we've already sort of decided on Bringing on the Heartbreak by Def Leppard, so unless we get a really good suggestion we're probably not gonna change it. But thanks anyway.

That is a fooking amazing song.
If you can, record it, I'd like to see how you pull it off with one guitar.
