Metal bands? Not off the top of my head, no. The closest I could get to that would be Borknagar maybe. :/

I am not exactly sure what exactly is "operatic" but I think Garm's cleans in most of La Masquarade Infernale and The Sham Mirrors could be described as such (all Arcturus). There should also be quite a few trad/epic doom bands who employ them, as far as I am aware but I really do not know what do you expect on "operatic vocals".

You could try this and see if this is what you meant.

Virgin Black is a good example considering that the dude actually studied some opera as far as I know.

Male vocals on 1:35

yeah i was looking a band like arcturus, I found a band named Vulture Industries, from what i heard of them they remind me of the album La Masquerade Infernale of Arcturus . I also found some wierd band named Aberrant Vascular.

...
@NLthrasher thanks but Kamelot is power metal.

True, but he doesn't sing in an operatic manner in Kamelot. Though it's damn awesome.

It raises the question though... Do you like them? You don't strike me as someone that might like them, don't ask me why.
Damn, just coming back here forced me to listen to the second viddeo, epic solo is epic.

EDIT. nevermind, I just remembered some old comment of yours about them finding them decent at best, oh well...

Ya I think the highest I'd rate one of their albums (can't even remember my favorite, goes to show you how much attention I pay them) is a high 6/low 7.

I think it's the one with Vertimizzo or whatever in the title. Verimizzio? Whatever, I'm not a fan of Assassin's Creed either.

Fortissimo or maybe Mezzo Forte. Also... Assassin's Creed? xD

Now I seriously don't know which one. :/ Oh well, not a big loss.

The Assassin's Creed reference was in regards to the Italian language...

I can't think of any that employ an operatic voice, but another opera-trained metal vocalist is Warrel Dane of Nevermore. Maybe not what you're looking for from the topic, but all I can think of.

What does that have to do with my comment?

I was using your post as an example as to why I'd post Nevermore due to the similarity of our posts (i.e. both of us naming an opera-trained metal vocalist who doesn't necessarily adopt an operatic style in his music). Unfortunately, I missed Numa's second post, if I'd spotted that earlier I'd've not bothered to post in the first place, my bad.

If it had no male opera-style vocals, it was Fortissimo.

There is an epic/doom band from Puerto Rico I think, they sing in Spanish and for me they're awesome. Their name is DANTESCO, you should check them out:
