    This thread has probably been done before, but in light of what's recently been said about the tone this next album is going to take, perhaps responses will be different.

    My #1 request would be some bits from Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Unfortunately I don't know how to decribe it, but if you've seen the old Fantasia movie you'll know what I mean: the part where all the volcanos are blowing up and all hell has broken loose. There are a few other places that would have cool riffs, too--but I'd just LOVE to hear Romeo and Lepond come crashing in with that riff.

    #2 would be some classical Spanish guitar, just to vary things. Some pieces can be dark and depressive, and it would show off a new side of Romeo's playing skills. Pinnella could potentially have some fun with the idea, too.

    #3...as completely hokey as it sounds...would be Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain". That is IF too many people haven't ripped it off already. In which case, scratch that idea.

    Stravinky's Firebird.
    Bizet's Carmen (that would be REALLY interesting)

    I am getting goosebumps thinking about it. :loco:

    More Bach would always be nice.

    And if they could pull off the Allegro non Molto from Vivaldi's Winter, it'd be SICK.

    i just played rach's prelude in g-minor...op.23...i looove rach...so awesome. yeah i would love to hear pinella play that stuff. I was also think NOBM by mossourgsky (sp?),...it would also be interesting to see how romeo, lepond and pineela could arrange some piano trios...that would be really interesting.

    I think if they did the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn it would be the coolest thing any metal head could do.

    Maybe it's not considered "classic" but I'd really love to hear SymX do some Atonal stuff like Messiean's Quartet for the end of Time or more experimental stuff like works by Takemitsu... I guess it would rip off the neoclassical title though. :/

    one of Bartok's string quartets would sound pretty evil metaled up.

    1. unfortunately, stravinsky isn't public domain yet, so they would have to shell out royalities to his estate. that's probably why no one covers the more modern stuff.
    2.how about leyenda?
    3.http://www.guitar9.com/reasonsforadecade.html already been done, works quite well too!

    I know this isnt exactly classical music but I think it would be cool if they did a cover of the inquisition song from Mel Brooks' History of The World Part 1.

    on second thought, that would be a bad idea forget about it.

    btw: I think dt's new album title starts with an "o"
