    [Music] Where can I find more music like this?

    I fell in LOVE with this song but I have no clue what "genre" this song would fall in. There are orchestral instruments, beautiful singing and a big soundstage (soundstage is important, I have a decent'ish audio setup :P).
    Is this classical music, or symphony, or what? Sorry if this comes off as a dorky question, I'm usually banging my head to metal/electronic/etc and exploring this new genre is...well, new. I don't even know where to start. The closest thing that comes to this is Nightwish...but even that has guitars/drums and is a lot faster. I'm looking for something slower with richly detailed instruments and emphasis on top-notch singing vocals and an EPIC "fantasy" theme to it, like the above song (for a change!).

    Could anyone suggest to me some actual artists/groups? Thanks!

    The genre is actually termed "New Age" or "Easily Listening" according to Google, but I doubt searching either of those would find you another song along the lines of that one.

    Amazing song though, sorry I couldn't be of any help. :P

    EDIT: The artists name is Asja Kadric, it appears she's only worked on songs for GW2 though, can't find anything else from her.

    I got some examples, from video games (both Two Worlds) actually:







    Also, Nightwish songs that are slower check out "Turn Loose the Mermaids", "The Crow, the owl the dove" on their latest album. "Creek Mary's Blood" on their 2004 album also.

    Also, try out the Orchestral Rock band Globus. The Metal band Therion also have done a lot of slower mid-tempo orchestral rock songs.

    I would recommend Two Steps From Hell, es posthumus, and Audiomachine.

    Audiomachine example:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySXsFk3v-_E (If you like rock/instrumental mixed, which I do)
    Second Audiomachine example:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kUSkNg-Vtc (Different than the first example)

    Two Steps From Hell, I could honestly sit here and link 50 different videos, I'm going to just link a few, with the main song from an album as example: (I would also recommend subscribing to TwoStepsFromTheMusic, which is Two Steps From Hell's channel)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPiWUq5DUjE (Power of Darkness)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLUguXpUIb0 (Archangel)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LtnLVRvypw (Nero, which is a very varied album, I would recommend checking out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9RfGPMf0BY as well)

    There are more albums, and way more music from them but, I don't want to spam and that's a ton of stuff to get started with right there, so go check em out! Let me know if you have any questions about Two Steps From Hell.

    ES Posthumus

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aYiiGd3PZc (My personal favorite of what they have, go check out others!)

    Hope this helped.

    It sounds like Symphonic Orchestra to me. Remember their are no such things as dorky questions...

    Don't have speakers but if you view it youtube it should suggest similar songs on the right hand side.

    New Age, Neo Classical, or Dark wave maybe? Anyone in those genres should bring you pretty close.
    Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!

    Enya, Sarah Brightman, ERA possibly.

    you can try Les Friction, its not exactly the same as your vid though. They are pretty much the new E.S. Posthumus
