Fusion

This time we're going to talk about Fusion.
Musically, fusion is the joining of multiple styles to create a new one. When you hear the word, you generally think of the styles of the Bitches Brew album by Miles Davis, or Weather Report. The funk/jazz fusion is definitely awesome. But there's plenty of other good joining of genres. Most modern genres of music are fusions of earlier ones.

But even knowing that, there are some interesting ways to merge them. Here are some of my favourites, any new ones I should know about?
Funk Metal.
Orchestral Christmas Metal.
Celtic Punk.
For more of a thematic fusion, Pirate Metal.
The Gorillaz could be considered a band built on different kinds of fusion.
Steampunk Rap.
And for the big finish, Swedish Swing Opera Metal.

Awesome.
