Heavy Metal’s 11 Most Un-Metal Songs Of All Time

by


9. Judas Priest “Before The Dawn”
With acoustic guitar, keyboards, chimes and lyrics about a distant lover, Priest are breaking all the laws of metal on this tender ballad from the un-tenderly titled Killing Machine album.


10. Pain of Salvation “Second Love”
These Swedish prog-metal heads were obviously listening to too much Fleetwood Mac when they wrote this. Someone light some incense already.


11. Motörhead “1916”
Even Lemmy? Yes, even Lemmy. Sounding more The Wall-era Pink Floyd meets The Pogues than Motörhead, Lemmy composes a beautiful piece of music about the life of a soldier.
