Hurt isn't really metal.. But they are alt-rock/metal and they use a Violin quite often actually.

Cold Inside
Danse Russe
Alone With The Sea

But like I said... Not exactly metal.

The Velvets weren't really metal but still great ( and it was a viola ).
Then they'll take you to Cloughprior and shove you in the ground

uhh... YEllow Card DUH! they are so hard and br00tal


but really, you'd be suprised, lots of symphonic metal has violin and stuff, and if it doesn't it should. Imo the violin sounds better than the guitar. (im gonna get flamed) but I really think it does.

"Deethharmonic"- Dethklok (Emilie Autumn plays all the violin parts. She's about the most metal violinist on the planet. She dresses up like a fairy, so she doesn't LOOK metal, but she's amazing)

A lot of Korpiklaani has violin. "Wooden Pints" comes to mind first.

That's all I can think at the moment, though.

^^^ Just... pretend the whole incident of her singing and raping old songs at a few of their gigs didn't happen (don't look on youtube unless you want a shock) and she's fine. The new album's AMAZING. She's different to tarja, not as powerful sounding.
