I think I can agree with you about two things, Tablinan- the presence of the classical choirs and the piano. Even that I'm not completely sure, since it might become boring to use only classical choirs - maybe it's even better to keep them for the most special moments - each song has it.., and there...

Well, because it's just not metal, at least to me. The vocals may be aggressive, but the opera can be also really aggressive.
