Sort of a great timing, I have been enjoying a lot Fleshgod Apocalypse, and they are actually playing here tonight!
Therion did a live album with choir and orchestra in 2009 called The Miskolc Experience. They are a real fusion of classical and opera and metal and orchestra whereas other bands are just metal bands with classical influences with no real hybrid between the two. Therion is the only metal or rock band with no lead singer and dispensed with it and instead use a choir or multiple singers.
