    Sounds like a mixture of a Gregorian Chant and Industrial type music. – Kage Sep 3 '18 at 19:19

    I don't know in detail. But with all the guitar and bass, it's definitely some kind of Rock genre. – Adil Saju Sep 5 '18 at 18:07

You're better off looking into experimental composers/producers , I don't think there's an established genere specifically for this but there are a lot of japanese composers (that usually work in anime) that create similar types of music where there's chanting and upbeat rock or modern instrumentation . I can give some names that come to mind (but they may not sound exactly like this sorry) : Kalafina , Yoko Kanno , Susumu Hirasawa , Kenji Kawai

    It's a tricky one, because heavy metal and various other "metal" genres will sometimes blend chant in for atmosphere, or use elements sounding like chant similarly – Angst Sep 8 '18 at 11:20

    Elfen Lied and Akira soundtracks may be of interest (vaguely). – Piovezan Sep 23 '18 at 1:26
