    I'm somewhat shocked at the lack of symphonic metal bands with a male vocalist. It seems to be a female vocalist dominated genre, whereas power metal is the opposite.

    This guy also has a folk group called Man's Gin that's exceptional, but his black metal work is just ungodly

    I was going to start one of these eventually. Guess I should have been faster. Black metal is my favorite subgenre at the moment, mostly the softer, more atmospheric stuff, but I listen to some of the really brutal stuff as well.



    Stuff like that. Here's the heavier stuff:


    Although I like some death, thrash, folk, etc as well.

    I just can't imagine a male vocalist creating the same atmospheric presence that Simone Simons or Tarja Turunen can. It takes an operatic voice, and I think a female vocalist is better suited in this instance. Maybe if Pavarotti had dabbled in metal...

    Anyway, moar symphonic metal.

    @Sakonosolo

    I...simply can't get into black metal, I just can't for some reason. It's weird, because I like the instrumentation, but the vocalization...drains me.

    It's not that the vocalization is bad, it fits the genre perfectly, but yeah...

    I wouldn't say that, not all the time anyway. Roy Khan from Kamelot, well...formerly from Kamelot, would do well with symphonic metal vocals, me thinks. But...of course...he's another classically trained male who sticks with power metal.

    Iron Maiden's singer was male and he has a symphonic kind of voice. Mike Scalzi from Slough Feg and Hammers of Misfortune does it sometimes too.


    Ayreon too


    Although Ayreon is a whole thing. Maybe my definition of symphonic is too wide.

    Well, I can't say I've heard a symphonic metal band with a male vocalist, so I really don't know. Just hazarding a guess. But the usual fare, as far as male metal vocalists go, just doesn't seem like it would fit to me.

    Metal is my shit. I've posted a lot of my love of metal around the forums before, so I'm feeling confident my stance is known.

    Yes! I like my metal as heavy as possible, too. Sludge wins it for me a lot of the time. The best sludge metal in my mind is the kind that makes you feel like you just drowned your ears in tar.

    You guys I need help.

    I've been meaning to branch out from my Japanese preferences when it comes to metal, but I just don't know where to start. My favourite band is Dir En Grey and if something similar to them exists somewhere or you'd like to give other recommendations, I'd be happy to hear them. Below are some examples of their music.

    Spoiler:

    Their two most recent albums have both had long, sprawling songs like this. Vinushka is my personal favourite among them.

    On the topic of slow and heavy, Thrones are pretty good.

    Finding something that sounds exactly like them is going to be hard but here's some:

    They're not really the same but there's a few different types.
