Symphonic metal

The symphonic metal is a musical genre combining the musical styles symphonic, gothic, operatic, and all styles of existing metal 
(doom, heavy, death, black, power).
 However, it can also inspired by Celtic and medieval music.
The birth of symphonic metal was in northern Europe mainly in Finland, Sweden, the netherlands, germany and Norway to the 1990s. 
Instruments representative are: guitar, bass, drums, the symphony orchestra (but for lack of pecuniary , musicals groups often use the synthesizer)
and chorus.
The particularity of symphonic metal that is the combining of many musical genres brings to life a new style of music.
Mostly, it is the mixture of orchestra and rock sound with the combination of a metal singer and an opera singer.
the thundering sound of electric guitars and screaming the metal singer will join with the magisterial voice of opera singer and the sweetness
of the orchestra .

  ect ...)
