Top 10 Extreme Metal Songs Featuring Keyboard InstrumentsMetal_Treasure All instruments using a keyboard are allowed - piano, organ, accordion, electronic keyboards, including synthesizers and digital pianos.
If you think that using keyboard instruments in extreme metal is weird, you are probably right because it isn't typical but it exists.
Keyboard instruments are mainly used in progressive metal, symphonic and power metal but in general, these instruments aren't typical in metal music - most of the metal bands don't use them on a regular basis.
However, metal music has been becoming more and more progressive over time and this trend includes more often utilization of keyboard instruments because these instruments setup a "progressive" sound.
Here are some examples - there are even technical death metal songs with piano.
