Symphonic metal is a subgenre of metal that tends to use elements normally found in symphonies or ClassicalMusic. That's the basic description of the genre, but its actual implementation can vary widely. The symphonic part can be an entire symphony, a keyboardist, or violin and cello player. The usage of the symphonic elements can vary from trying to create a classical feel, to simply adding thickness to the music. As such, it's position on the MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness can vary considerably. On the softer end are bands where female vocals are frequently used (with bands often featuring female lead vocalists), and acoustic guitars may be included. On the harder end are bands whose style more closely matches BlackMetal or another type of Extreme Metal. A band might specialize in Symphonic Metal, or might play a song or album in the style.
