Top 10 Metal Songs with Spanish or Latino Music Influences


The Top Ten

1 Magnetic Propulsion (Tientos) - Flametal

A song of 2014.
Flametal play instrumental flamenco metal, i.e. a mix of flamenco and metal. Never expected this combination to work but it did and it sounds very beautiful. One of the best experiments in metal.
Guitarist is Ben Woods who is both flamenco and metal (rhythm) guitarist. Electric guitar solos were played by Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth). - Metal_Treasure

4 Cosmosis (Bulerias) - Flametal

Incredible flamenco metal instrumental, 2014.
Loose description of the song structure:
short flamenco intro, thrash metal riffs, power/speed metal section with relevant drumming, prog metal sections, and of course - more flamenco. Sounds weird? Yes. But also sounds amazing. - Metal_Treasure
