Top 10 Metal Songs that Sound Like the Classical Music Of the 21st CenturyMetal_Treasure There's one thing people noticed long ago - metal and classical go very well together. The reason is very simple: the roots of metal are in classical music more than in any other music genre. And this has been becoming more clearer over time, with every new stage of the metal evolution. As of the 21st century, after 50 years of metal history, the trends are more than obvious.
Some even define metal as classical music in the era of electricity and electric guitars.
The Top Ten
My jaw dropped when I first heard it. - Metal_Treasure
It's not only the violin makes you think of classical but also the song is composed like a classical sonata - in movements, all of which are awesome and transitions between them are just wow. - Metal_Treasure
A song from Finland. - Metal_Treasure
Prog/Symphonic metal - Metal_Treasure
Just play the sample (it's a death metal song but the sample features only an instrumental section so it's safe to play it - no death growls) - Metal_Treasure
The entire song just sounds like modern classical music. But you can still feel the amount of metal in it. - Metal_Treasure
Softer and beautiful song. - Metal_Treasure
It's a very beautiful instrumental song - Metal_Treasure
Play the sample (it features only an instrumental section).
Isn't this classical music on electric guitars? Yes, it is. But officially it's progressive/technical death metal. - Metal_Treasure
This sounds like brutal classical music, haha. Extreme classical music 😊 - Metal_Treasure
A metal song of 1995 than became a pretty popular Christmas song thanks to being re-issued by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Most probably it's a re-issue and not a cover but I'm not 100% sure. - Metal_Treasure
