One thing cool about being a metal-head is that despite having the heaviest and most aggressive music out there, we also own some of the most beautiful and melodic as well. Here are two of my favorite acoustic metal songs. The first isn't 100% acoustic as it has some keyboards, but for the most part, it is still basically piano based. When you have Gunter Werno playing piano...... you need little else anyway. Please add to this if you wish................. And Brother Vern, I know you aren't a Vanden Plas fan, but listen from about the 2:00 mark for 20 seconds or so. I think you will even be impressed in Andy's emotic vocals. He is tough to beat on the softer stuff.
