Phantom of the Opera:

PROGRESSIVE METAL STYLE!!!!!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VgLK...eature=related

yes, I know they screwed up the the ending.


For those of you who don't know what Progressive Metal is, think Opera crossed with metal crossed with the Lord of the Rings soundtrack. Incredibly epic.

Whoa. I never heard of Progressive Metal. I actually like that.

Any other groups that do this?

You might try Kamelot or Symphany X. But after Nightwish, any other Prog Metal band sounds kind of weak. Nightwish also does a few insturmentals that can blow you out of the water, such as "Last of the wilds." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCJYs...eature=related.

Prog Metal usually entails an orchastra to get that "epic" feel plus a regular metal band to achieve a high energy, fast paced musical piece.

Nightwish is my favorite, but I really like Kamelot and Symphany X is fairly decent.

I see prog metal as a way of making an epic movie without the film.

That one had a Celtic feel to it.

I like their style!! I think you might have turned me on to another type of music!! Thank you for introducing that to us.

Wow. I didn't think it was possible to make Andrew Lloyd Weber sound even more over-the-top absurd. I was wrong.

Circle II Circle
Dragonforce
Lacuna Coil
Rhapsody (of Fire)
Symphony X
Silent Cry
The Provenance
Whispering Gallery

Just keep in mind, some of it is cheesy

Personally, I'm a big fan of Symphony X
of that, The Odyssey album is quite nice.

that's just one track, but the main track
