Fusion

Avicii did the impossible with his latest single by fusing country with EDM. I didn’t like the song the first time I heard it, and I don’t like it now, but from the first time I heard it I thought it was absolutely amazing, genius even, that he managed to blend these two completely disparate genres together. I honestly thing it’s a great song, even though I personally don’t care for it.

I like classical music. Specifically/non-colloquially I like baroque music (17th c, think Bach and Vivaldi, lots of notes).

I like trance music.

I like power metal.

(Uplifting) trance music borrows from classical. Power metal borrows from classical–in fact I find it strikingly similar to baroque music. Both make use of heavy melodic intervals. Make this happen already, somebody.

Btw, I liked house and then trance years ago, and they had a baby already (listen to any “EDM” act coming from NL), so I’m pretty positive this will work.
