Modern Rock Ballads

Recommended Posts

I love Modern Rock ballads. Anyone else?. Anyone got any good non-mainstream ones they like? I'm pretty much familiar with everything from bands like Nickelback, Hinder and Daughtry.

 

Here's a few random favorites from recent years:

 

Shallow Side - Crazy

Art of Dying - Everything

I'm definitely a sucker for a good ballad and Alter Bridge's In Loving Memory is definitely one of those!

One of my favourite songs of 2015 so far. Absolutely love it. Shame the rest of the EP is pretty much throwaway modern rock / nu-metal.

Agreed on both points. Shame, since their last CD was good.

18 Visions had a great ballad called 'Broken Hearted'. Can't believe it's nearly 10 years old!

 

BTW some nice selections Grey.

This one's really good. I'd never heard of the song, or even the band.

 

I still have to check out the rest of the lists. Lots to listen to here.

Yeah, I agree about the previous disc. Good band and I was surprised at how weak the rest of the new EP is.

Matchbox 20 - 'Rest Stop' ... probably not everyone's cup of poison, but I love this song ... the same with The Cranberries' 'Daffodil Lament' ...

Second Chance, Not Meant to Be and My Little Secret were already in my collection. I finally got around to listening to everything else on the list I hadn't heard (except 7th Heaven, couldn't find it) and really like Dive's Tonight and Stanfour's Desperate. Good suggestions.

In the Middle

Heaven

Wait For Me

Out of My Head

If this sounds a bit like Skillet, I'm sure it's because the EP was produced by their guitarist, Ben Kasica.

 

Above Only - Goodbye

Very nice. Yeah, sounds like a mix of Skillet and Hinder. I must check this one out. Is the EP from this year?

It's a 3-song EP from 2012 I only just discovered. The other two tracks are good too.

Based on what I've read on their Facebook page, it looks like they're done.
