    I was never a big fan of the power ballad.

    This one, though has one of my all time favorite power chords, at 3:19. Start around 3:15 or so to get the full effect.. Epic.

    Shinedown - What a Shame

    Slaughter was pretty damn decent in their day. I haven't listened to them much in many years until a few months ago. I'm going to be seeing them this week with Lynch Mob.

    Been listening to their second album quite a bit lately. Just happened to be listening to Days Gone By when I came across your post earlier tonight:


    Slaughter - Days Gone By

    Another power ballad from Slaughter's 2nd album that I dig...

    Slaughter - Real Love



    (unfortunately, the audio and video are just slightly out of sync if you want to actually watch the old, official vid)
