Best Instruments In Metal Besides Guitars, Bass, and DrumsWhat are instruments in metal, which make the sound more interesting?
The Top Ten
I haven't heard of a lot of Metal bands that use this, but I do know a rock band that used a violin. Of course you know what I'm thinking about since I made a list of why they were a great band.
Almost all folk metal bands use violins. - Metal_Treasure
By this, I just remembered the video "Guitar VS Violin - A heavy metal battle! ". Awesome video. - zxm
Dark Lunacy, Eluveitie, Dominia... many Melodic Death Metal bands use this. - Flav
Piano is usually used to setup a "progressive" sound so it's found mostly in prog metal, symphonic metal, power metal - Savatage, Blind Guardian, Edguy, Sonata Arctica, and many more. - Metal_Treasure
Thanks for making me think of "Oblivion Upon Us" by DOOM:VS. - Metalhead1997
Off the top of my head - Apocalyptica.
Cello is not very popular in metal but my heart skips a beat every time I hear cello on metal songs. Example: Demons & Wizards - Love's Tragedy. God bless Jon Schaffer and Hansi Kürsch.
I think Northern Kings also used cello in some songs. - Metal_Treasure
Even in death metal - Children Of Bodom, for example. - Metal_Treasure
Especially in prog metal, symphonic, power metal. - zxm
Acid Witch? - Metalhead1997
Very often in symphonic metal, in some power metal songs, too. - Metal_Treasure
