There was a Metallica faze with the San Francisco Symphony. I've always been in love with the Symphonic Metallica collection (S&M), I can imagine myself doing music like that! It's a huge taste to your ears!

All the great songs like:
One (S&M)
For Whom The Bell Tolls (S&M)
Master of Puppets (S&M)
Human (S&M)

On youtube and it being mono doesn't give it justice, you need the original on HD-Surround with subwoofer, if not be there live!

Great stuff smile.gif I gotta say, strings can really add something to a band. It does sometimes get used poorly, or overdone, but in these vids it's freakin perfect! Good pull azza!

How about NIGHTWISH?



Or EPICA?




Or LEAVES EYES?




There are TONS of great symphonic bands out just now smile.gif It seems the Dutch have cornered the market a bit on the form, but that hasn't stopped everyone else from trying and some are really good!

MONKEY: The videos you put up are from pioneering Symphonic (and Dutch) Metal band WITHIN TEMPTATION. So when you asked for bands in that "Genre" the posts (especially mine) are mostly symphonic metal acts. When you say Leaves Eyes are ore what you are looking for, is there a specific type of Symphonic Metal you are looking for?

What makes something Symphonic Metal is basically Heavy Metal music classical/progressive elements usually sung by a Female operatic vocalist. Many of the pioneering bands are, for some reason, all Dutch. Let's hear it for the Dutch!

Amén to the Dutch!!!


well all the bands your post, is basically what i am looking for : o, but i can't feel for example on epica or nightwish, the same power and feel on
the part of the vocals, that i feel on leave eyes and Within Temptaion (Sharon's voice is like WOW).

that's why i said that leave eyes is more the kind of sound i am looking for

Gotcha. I'd agree smile.gif Leaves and Within both have very emotive vocalists. How about these guys.
