The Top Ten
Blind Guardian employed a full symphonic orchestra so there are many classical instruments. The strong inclusion of the strings starts in the intro. - Metal_Treasure
Awesome violin. There's even a violin solo - their lead singer with the amazing clean voice is also a trained violinist (Tim Charles).
So you get extreme progressive metal with violins. I think it's very creative and I personally love it (one of my favorite metal songs of 2017) - Metal_Treasure
Again, there's a full symphonic orchestra with many classical instruments - Metal_Treasure
Just play the song sample to hear the violin incorporated in a very proggy section. Sounds very unique. - Metal_Treasure
There's a very sad cello in the beginning - part of it is on the sample (in the background). - Metal_Treasure
The violin even takes the lead at 5:20-6:50 and it sounds awesome (one of the best metal songs of 2017). - Metal_Treasure
