"Metal Ballads" Album Description:

"Metal Ballads" was a vinyl record series released from 1988 to 1990 that compiled heavy metal ballads. The series is known for its distinctive album art featuring a half-dressed man and woman on a moonscape background. Bands like Axel Rudi Pell, Bonfire, Kingdom Come, Nazareth, Quiet Riot, The Scorpions, and Whitesnake were all featured on these compilations, showcasing their softer side with power ballads and emotional anthems. The cover art, while undeniably eye-catching, has become a signature element of the series, perfectly capturing the blend of masculinity and vulnerability often present in heavy metal ballads.
