I didn't know what style-topic they might belong so I dared to start a new separate thread.

I suspect they might be classified as quite unique band but nevertheless I'd be glad to hear some recommendations of bands in similar style: keyboard-laden, kinda grotesque or slightly King Diamond-esque old-school heavy prog with occult and sci-fi influences.

Thanks in advance.

Lord Bane might work, like aloof said. Maybe some Savatage songs.

Ripper's And the Dead Shall Rise is pretty much completely in this vein. Pulpy, occult, keyboards, some Mercyful Fate / King Diamond-isms. Autothrall's review doesn't really do it justice at all IMHO; fun, campy stuff that's up the same alley as SotW.

Year of the Goat has a similar name and a similarly retro, stylish songwriting sensibility. Not identical in sound, but it gives me similar vibes...
