Looking for some relaxing metal songs

Recommended Posts

Well, I have recently got ahold of nightwish's mini-album "Sleeping Sun (4 Ballads of the Eclipse)", and as relaxing it is to listen to those 4 songs it gets tiresome after the 2nd or third loop, I tried finding more songs similar to it and all I could find was their "Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan".

So right now, my relaxing playlist consists of:

Nightwish - Sleeping Sun

Nightwish - Walking in the Air

Nightwish - Swanheart

Nightwish - Angels Fall First

Nightwish - Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan

That's just to give you a reference of what I'm looking for, please post the names of any other similar songs you know, thanks :).

Nah, it doesn't have to be nightwish, anything that sounds sort of similar (as in, not cradle of filth or something o_O), and thanks!

Good one BMC :lol:

Althought that definition seems like a contradiction, some Led Zeppelin ballad would fill that bill

i don't care which band does whatever ballad but AFAIC, it's not metal (ballads aren't metal if you can still tell they're ballads).

different people have different things to relax to..

for me, black metal is about the most relaxing and hypnotic music, stuff like mayhem - de mysteriis dom sathanas, or ulver's bergtatt album are the best relaxation albums! along with doom stuff (like esoteric).

nightwish would do anything but make me relax! ack!

Anything by Novembers Doom, Opeth or Lacuna Coil.

Hope you enjoy these artists.

I personally would recommend looking into novembers doom, opeth or if its classic metal, metallica or led zepplin for an alternative.

www.purevolume.com/metallica - i think may have it

www.myspace.com/metallica - try here or search using the find music button for fan sights.

other than that, i dont think i could help you as the death genre is not what i usually listen to.

I like a few who have posted don't think that Nightwish is at all relaxing :/ but I'll add on Cult of Luna, it's really deep and bass heavy and slow. It's been what I fall asleep to pretty much all summer long for years now :) Gotta love passing out to sludge metal :D

As for specific tracks I'd suggest The Watchtower, Genesis or Thirtyfour. That's what I can come up with off the top of my head, other than that I've allways found the song Hallways of Always by Ulver to be really relaxing :)
