Hi guys. I was wondering if there were more, good bands that combine good guitarwork with a more classical approach (think Symphony X, for example). I want something that leans mostly to the classical side.

Well, let me hear your suggestions!
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died. Hakuin answered 'How am I supposed to know?'
'How do you not know? You're a Zen master!' exclaimed the samurai.
'Yes, but not a dead one,' Hakuin answered.

Necrophagist uses alot of neo classical influences, but it's pretty heavy :P

Here are two links for ye:

Edit: at the end of the first link, there's even a small take on Prokofiev's 'The Knight's Dance', which is from the ballet version of Romeo & Juliet

Check out some Cacophony.
The DNA results show that Jeremy Kyle is a nob.

Thanks for the replies so far. I've heard the bands mentioned, but what I'm looking for utilizes the classical instruments more. Something orchestra like, with electric guitar.

(think Symphony X! :p)

He may tend to be a pompous ass on occasion, but Yngwie Malmsteen is virtually exactly what you are describing.

Check out these songs:

Far Beyond The Sun
Evil Eye
Brothers

Youtube some more

Rob Marcello, I don't know if you can find him solo though, he used to be in the band "Danger Danger" back in the 80s, hes pretty good.
