Top 10 Metal Songs that Include Rare / Atypical Combinations with Other Music GenresMetal and flamenco is rare. Metal and jazz is also relatively rare.
But mixing metal with classical music, punk, folk and rap is NOT rare so these combinations shouldn't be on this list.
The Top Ten
What a great idea! - DaringXx
The entire song (instrumental) is a beautiful mix of flamenco and metal. - Metal_Treasure
Metal and jazz are masterfully mixed, without losing the metal feel and tempo. - Metal_Treasure
I am not sure the non-metal part is OK in this song but the song is very popular and I just had to include it. - Metal_Treasure
A pretty aggressive speed metal song that opens with a waltz by Johann Strauss II - a barrel organ version of his 'The Blue Danube'.
While classical music in general isn't a rare combination with metal, waltz in particular is. - Metal_Treasure
A prog/technical death metal song that includes 30 seconds of jazz fusion music. - Metal_Treasure
Tobias Sammet (Edguy, Avantasia) sings jazz in the middle of this metal song and he sounds amazing! (3:25-4:25). - Metal_Treasure
A 2012 original Xmas metal song but music in the slow part from 6:00-8:25 isn't metal for sure. It's a pretty long section, 2:30 minutes long. I am not gonna tell you what it is because I am bad and wanna make you hear it. - Metal_Treasure
There's a flamenco style acoustic intro to a pretty heavy song but it works perfectly because this music contrast is a cool transition. - Metal_Treasure
This sounds perfect to me (flamenco metal). - Metal_Treasure
A Progressive Metal song, mainly full of heavy guitar riffs and death growls, contains a blue grass section. What? - cjWriter1997
Thank you very much for this entry cjWriter1997 - now we also have blue grass in the house. Hey, my list just needed some blue grass! - Metal_Treasure
This is one of their heaviest songs and I like it but... is this a ska-reggae-troll-metal song? - Metal_Treasure
If somebody got interested in this band, I made a list about them with details - Top 10 Flametal Songs. - Metal_Treasure
Metallica ska cover - it's a metal song originally but this ska "treatment" is so funny. I like this cover by the way, always makes me smile. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds very country-like to me. - Martin_Canine
Comes with a sax part included in an extreme metal song so imagine... - Metal_Treasure
I would call it progressive flamenco metal. - Metal_Treasure
It opens with a traditional folk song before driving into the speed metal anthem we know it as.
It's a cover song (Focus) but the original rock song incorporates yodeling (! ) so the metal cover also has yodeling. Yep, Andi Deris is yodeling!
