Amberian Dawn are a fantastic symphonic power metal band from Finland. Their music is heavy, bombastic, melodic, and quite complex and layered. However, the use of female operatic vocals adds a whole new very satisfying element to the mix which soars high above the wall of sound behind her. I also view this type of genre as gothic opera metal. Amberian Dawn are one of my top favorite bands along with Nightwish who play the same type of music in the same genre as Amberian Dawn. Check both bands out.
