The Contenders: Page 6
Same reason as Obsidian Gate. 10/10
Awesome French lyrics and you don't have to know French to enjoy their songs.
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.
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.
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!
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
There's no equal to Cradle of Filth in composition and lyrics as well!
