i want to compose a song for my band to use as an intro but i can't seem to get an inspiration. who are some good metal bands with good orchestral intros, or good orchestral songs?
I would try listening to classical music and see if that helps. I like Bach personally. Mozart is pretty good as well if your looking for classical music that can be inspiring towards writing a classical-esk intro.
Listen to some Wagner or Lizst
