AllMusic Review by

A genre filled more with flowing majesty than menace, heavy metal's classical roots are explored in Symphonic Metal, Vol. 5: Dark & Beautiful. Featuring bands like Xandria, this two-disc set helps to illuminate the roots of the heaviest genre out there, showing a lineage of technical musicianship and composition that's far closer to classical music than rock & roll.
