Best opera metal band

Thou must give me you favorite opera metal band like say Nightwish, Skillet, or evanescence.

Nightwish and evanescence are the main ones I listen to really. Nightwish would be my favorite of them.


For a Free Scotland
Nightwish by a mile, followed by Avantasia's "The Metal Opera" double album.

Evanescense is just alternative. It's not nearly fast or distorted enough to be considered metal.


Son of Liberty
This genre confuses me.....

Anyone care to give a real list because I cant seriously recall ever hearing about Opera Metal?

Nightwish isn't really opera metal...... (actually, I've never even heard of "opera metal"...)

They used to have an opera singer doing the vocals, but I think they've always classified themselves as "symphonic metal"....

Although, there's so many brands of 'metal' these days, I don't think it really matters at all anymore... :-/

(nightwish is my favorite.... :D)


I guess I kinda take that back........

I had no idea there were so many other bands that sounded like Nightwish.....

(Glory! :hyper:)
