I honestly think it was the one song I listened to that had me feeling this way. It's your favorite one off of their new album, The Second Stone. I feel as if her voice is monotonous during the verses and that's why I originally said she needed more "power". However, I absolutely love the chorus though and her operatic tone is amazing.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the other tracks I've heard though. I'm making my way slowly through the albums. I'm still on The Quantum Enigma.
Here's some other Symphonic Metal bands you can check out:
Dawn of Destiny
Diabulus In Musica
Stream of Passion
Echoes of Eternity
My top 15 would be:
6. Diabulus in Musica
10. Amberian Dawn
11. Within Temptation
13. Dawn of Destiny
Not sure about the order after 5.
Floor Jansen recently joined Nightwish and are coming out with a new album in a couple months. They could be in my top 10 after I listen to it. Floor is an amazing vocalist. She can sing normal and operatic as well as growl.
