Let’s hear some BM power ballads.

I’m not talking about longer BM songs with extended acoustic intros like Seven Tears or something, but tracks that really get closer to that satanic Monster Ballads vibe even if they risk sounding lame/corny.

Examples:

Goatmoon - Palavien Ali-Ihmisten Löyhkä
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EU8bZM2hAj4

Limbonic Art - Source to Agonies [edit: had the songs in this album saved with the wrong names]
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DO6vigQQag0

Watain - They Rode On
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0lShs9BKYmU

Lux Occulta - The Path
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=z3uCYjH4RNI

Bathory - Under the Runes (honestly there are a few songs on Hammerheart and Twilight of the Gods that could fall into this category)
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=63km2fP8Ypg

What else?

In other words, otherwise clean played song but usually features a heavy chorus. That's the classic template for hard rock/heavy metal power ballad. At least from the original post examples only the Goatmoon one goes by that tamplate.

The wrong link/song for Limbonic Art may have led to some confusion

I don't think it's a power ballad per-se but Bilskirnir "As the World Ends" is melancholic and somehow "sunny" at the same time, it has a ballad-esque feeling to it:

For Death Metal rather than BM would Dying Fetus "Hail Might North Forest Trolls of Satan" count?

Just like anything slow is automatically "doom metal".

Yeah in hindsight should have posted that one, it’s that chorus/guitar... “A spell was cast...”

Cheesy velveeta goodness!

I'm a big fan of power ballads in general - I hadn't realised this was even a thing but it makes sense. I might have to record one myself, haha.

For most that Watina has gone downhill long ago, I have to admit that I listened to the shit out of this single song when it came out.
