Best Symphonic Metal Albumstruemetal
The Top Ten
All the songs in Once are masterpieces.
Easily the best Epic Metal album of all time! The symphonic compositions of Holopainen are unrivaled, and are a testament to his skill. Nightwish are a new bold force in world music.
Huh? That is the Black Halo doing way down here? The Black Halo is easily one of the best Symphonic Power Metal Albums ever. Top 5 easy.
Excellent multi faceted album
Mother Earth is an awesome album. So is Silent Force.
No Contest. Every WT Album beats anything on this list.
Great songs in great album by great band.
Unfortunately they have been disbanded dec 2012.
Maybe many people don't know them because the are Japanese bands.
In my humble opinion their music is better than nightwish and within temptation.
Yes it is a live album but by definition this is a Symphonic Metal album in fact this might be the only example of Symphonic Thrash Metal even though not all the songs are Thrash (Some are and some aren't) - christangrant
This is better than any of these above.
