Opera Metal Vol. 2Sep 8th, 2008
“Opera Metal Vol. 1″ was the successful start of a new compilation series which aims solely at classical arrangements within the rock and metal music sector. With the chart success of their album “Dark Passion Play” Nightwish currently prove how many fans the mixture of classical and metal music attracts.
On one hand there are the calm and mellow tunes, achieved by brass instruments, choirs and other classical elements. On the other hand there are the hard guitars, fulminating drums and the heavy bass lines. Combined these musical elements result in a very special, intense and epical music bringing together fans of different styles of music.
The second part of the series will tie in with the first sampler and will once again offer you the very best of the opera metal genre.
We will publish the final tracklist of the sampler within the next few weeks.
