110 Markize

Awesome French lyrics and you don't have to know French to enjoy their songs.

111 Kells

Their first two albums had some of the best symphonic metal songs but then the following album featured more grunting and growling which I've outgrown. Hopefully, they get back to awesome instrumentals with sweet female lead vocals and lyrics that touch the soul.

112 Lacrimosa

Not all their art is symphonic metal, but albums like Inferno, Stille or Elodia are simply what all the musicians on that list listen when they want to remember where are they aiming to.

113 Molllust

The fusion between classical music and metal from a quite classical point of view.

Front singer and composer Janika is also singing in current Haggard-line up.

In addition, they work with live strings, not with synthesizers. A band especially for lovers of classical music in metal!

114 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

118 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

Cradle Of Filth are Gothic/Symphonic Black Metal, not a pure Symphonic Metal. - GREYBOYY

Early Cradle is devilish poetry beyond compare. A must listen-to band.

Some of listed bands isn't Black Metal. So COF is best in this list
