Playlist 12/4/12: I've got your symphonic metal right here...

December 4, 2012

There have been some amazing developments over the history of the power metal genre. Most notably, the incorporation of symphonic elements has elevated the genre to new heights time and time again. By adding in the orchestral instrumentation, musicians have transcended metal music, and become composers, rather than just songwriters. Classical inspirations come full force, and what you are left with is an amazing marriage of styles. These are some of the best examples to get you started on your road to symphonic metal glory.

The Tracklist:

Wintersun - When Time Fades Away
Therion - Poupée de cire, poupée the son
Secret Sphere - Death From Above
Thy Majestie - Walls Of The Emperor
Wind Rose - Oath To Betray
Sound Storm - Blood Of Maiden
Luca Turilli's Rhapsody - Dark Fate Of Atlantis
