Well, I just discovered this band through a youtube recommendation and it's kind of kicking ass.

I cannot even begin to describe what the whole album sounds like, but the opener is kind of misleading. It's all over the place! Faster trad heavy/doom mixed with Bathory-like epicness, then more of a Dissection/Sacramentum thing going on still with a weird 80s/almost trad doom/psychedelic vibe, after that the title track "sounds like 1993-4 era Burzum song, but corny as fuck. Its funny" (comment on yt). I'm so intrigued, I tell ya.

So please check it out yourself if you may and

    -- tell me what the fuck is going on

    -- recommend similar stuff

    -- add it to the archives.
And now... it might satisfy to dream eternally.

Only listened to the first song so far but it reminds me of Black Magick SS.

Edit: Yeah finished the album. I like it. BMSS is still the first thing that comes to mind, musically, vocally, + the symbolism. But they're more focused and less spontaneous/jam sessiony, less metal. And then beyond BMSS there's Edelweiss and Assassination in that vein.

It's cool! Kinda folky, kinda doom-ish, kind of early Iron Maiden, sort of but not really, and the vocals are all over the map- death growls and black metal shrieks. There's a lot going on here that's pretty decent.

This is seriously cool. Liked it a few days ago, but I finally got around to hearing the whole thing. I hope these guys keep making music, and keep the raw sound. Great stuff.

Was just introduced to this the other day and it fucking floored me. I don't even really know how metal this is apart from the death/black vocals; it's more like easygoing 70s rock at times and has some weird psychedelic moments at others. But it creates a macabre, occult vibe overall, very Halloweenish. I can barely fucking find any info from a cursory Google search. But yeah - super impressive.

I actually like that they aren't really doing any usual metal riffing on this. It's definitely metal in its atmosphere, but the guitar playing is so fluid and expansive.

Yeah, this sounds a lot like late 60s/early 70s psych rock with harsh vocals. Definitely an interesting concept that hasn't really been done that much.

Yeah, it's pretty good. I haven't heard a lot of stuff like that. IMO it's heavy enough to have it's place here, it has definitely a rock vibe, but the pacing, the melodies, the singing turn it into a weird UFO. It sounds like a lot of bands that I'd consider proto-metal, with harsh vocals and a touch of modernity.

No matter, it's definitely interesting.

Giving this a spin now. It's fucking great, been a while since I heard something this fresh.
