Apocalytica could be classified as symphonic metal because of their música style. Lacuna Coil wouldn't count as symphonic metal. They're classified at gótico metal. evanescence does have some elements of gótico metal, but it's actually considered alternative rock.
No. The closest one would probably be Apocalyptica. I amor Lacuna Coil, and evanescence is my favorito! band, but I can't call them "symphonic metal". I would really just categorize them as "modern rock" o "normal rock". They both right great lyrics like a symphonic metal band, though.
I don't consider either Lacuna Coil o evanescence to be Symphonic Metal. evanescence seems más Modern Alternative Rock while Lacuna Coil seems to have más of a hard rock/metal (alternative) edge to their music. Apocalyptica seems más geared toward symphonic metal. though they maybe más avant garde type of band since they use cellos.
