Saxophones are wind instruments though. Many people (including myself until fairly recently) believe them to be brass as they are most commonly made out of brass, but due to the fact that they use a reed to produce sound they're part of the woodwind group.
Saxes are also lumped in with brass because they're part of the horn section in rock and jazz bands. Even then, brass instruments are also wind instruments in the broader sense because they are played with wind.
Technically I think he's right about his own post though, that first example didn't sound like wind instruments, it sounded like bad synth versions of wind instruments that were mimed by dudes in the video Maybe they're legit, but a lot of those black metal bands definitely do not have real orchestral instruments.
But yeah, pretty much anything played with the mouth is a wind instrument, besides like...the jew harp. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hlEraYPcxU&t=182
SIGH - Out of the Grave
Here's an extraordinarily weird song by the Japanese band SIGH. There's a sax solo at around the 2 minute mark.
Weird song is weird.
There's a Parkway Drive song "Blue And Grey with trumpet on the it that sounds pretty cool. It's strikes a nerve with me because along with guitar, I was trumpet performance major in college.
In uni, for my brass arranging assignment, I did an arrangement to accompany Siberian Kiss by Glassjaw. The song clearly isn't recorded to a click, as the tempo shifts all over the place and I only did the brass with samples which I couldn't be bothered manually shifting but it worked pretty well. I'd love to hear more hardcore with brass.
I am very, very familiar with that song and thus would love to see or hear your arrangement, do you have it in any form that's postable (either the score or some kind of audio)?

Black Metal from Hungary with their mighty Trumpet
Also...I think they're the forerunners, having a trumpet player in their line-up from 1994 (later changed with a trombone)
One of my personal favorite Sunn O))) songs, Alice. A tribute to Alice Coltrane (John Coltrane's wife).
Horns come in periodically throughout, but are most conspicuous (and obviously real/not programmed) towards the end. It actually reminds me of Sigur Ros' "Ný Batterí" a bit, interestingly enough. Similar use of brass.
I'm surprised no one's mentioned Monuments yet, lead singer also plays sax.
This makes me laugh every time.
Seriously though, that guy is pretty good at clarinet!
Septicflesh uses a full orchestra in the studio
surprised this one wasn't mentioned
I'll look out the score and see whether the timing issues make the audio as horrible as I remember it. I was pretty pleased with the arrangement, at the time.
