So, I stumbled across Symphonic Metal music by accident and boy WOW. I understand it’s more prevalent in The Netherlands and Finland.
So why am I writing it about? Well, I was doing a bit of coding and usually get distracted. Yet, I didn’t while listening to Symphonic Metal.
It seems to be working when I need to concentrate for longer. It’s also great for blocking things out.
Semblant, Delain and just some of what I listen to.
Nearest I got to it was Nightwish, long ago, but that was more Operatic metal than Symphonic. Apocalyptica are quite good as well, but thats more of a Cello only outfit.
I believe opera metal is another name for it.
