I'm looking for some songs with cool riffs played with strings or an orchestra of sorts.

Some examples are : Welcome Home - Coheed & Cambria
Mein Hertz Brent - Rammstein
Down & Out - Tantric
Metallica's S&M album.

Being an idiot should be illegal too.
Nightwish anyone? Dimmu Borgir, Cradle of Filth, Bleeding Through (at times), some Devin Townsend, Pain, some Dark Tranquillity, Sonic Sydicate, some KMFDM, Killing Joke...the list goes on dude. Just search "symphonic metal" anywhere and take yer pick. Hope that helps.

Whats a sig?
I found this today and was freaked out by the string part in the bridge, wasn't expecting it at all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yFCwDU3bw4

other than that, I don't really care for them much but I like what Dimmu Borgir do with horn parts, trumpets are evil

This. Almost every song on there is better than its studio counterpart.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

A vast amount of Black/Progressive/Melodic Death Metal bands have arrangements for strings in their music. Go and ask in the Metal forum's recommendaion thread, you'll get tons of replies.

yea man, who ever doesnt like pantera or think they suck doesnt like metal, end of discussion, they changed the freakin world n made history, so don't be sayin they suck, have respect, same goes for machine head n lamb of god cuz their good too
Kamelot. Especially their "Ghost Opera" song.

Another awesome cello rock band like Apocalyptica is Rasputina, only they're all chicks and...weirder.

TSO doesn't just do Christmas music, and their live show is one of the most mid-blowing things imaginable.

Cradle Of Filth and Dimmu Borgir don't actually use an orchestra, but they sound like they do and are badass.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!
Gotta say Follow the Tears by Heaven and Hell. Not too keen on most of their stuff, but that is an awesome part where the main riff kicks in.
