    What synth sound is this?

    Listen to the keyboard part that begins at 0:30. What sound is that? Is it a strings patch or some kind of synth lead? I hear it in a lot of power metal songs but I don't know what it is. I want to get that sound but I can't tell what it is mixed in with everything else.

    Though this sounds like a low end strings vst which is just a synthesizer. Tri waves as opposed to square. Though it is very bright so it may be a spectral wave. There isn't really any modulation or anything and the filter has low amount of resonance. Wouldn't be a hard tone to copy

    It sounds like a combo (a mixture of different sounds). Sounds like a mixture of strings, brass and maybe something bell-like for a percussive quality.

    The song is absolutely fucking awful, too. I therefore imagine both Chris and Dave would love it.

    I like Delain. I can't explain why, but I do.
