Any obscure gems leading to this dimension?

Mystic Places and Esoptron are two of the absolute best metal albums in my mind. There is an ineffable quality that they have, they remind me of Dead Can Dance in this regard, for compositions that evoke contact with something magical, arcane, ancient and yet out of time.

To describe them in more tangible terms they are still awesome. Relatively early Death metal with a symphonic quality, strong sense of melody, and atmosphere, expressed with virtuous vision.

Examples that match them tonally and/or in mood are rare but I am open to recommendations of any interpretation

Some examples-
There are some from Country mates

Despite them being a much busier sort of Death Metal, The Chasm sort of evokes a similar feeling to the old Septic Flesh records. Less doomy and much more riff-focused.

Another one from Greece... I only have this 2nd album, and they've released one last year!

It does have that mythical vibe.

The second album of On Thorns I lay sounds quite a bit similar to Esoptron.



There's also Nostradamus from Poland; the keys on their second album are almost identical to the key tone of Mystic Places of Dawn. Riff wise, they're not that similar but there's this one song on the album that really does seem to be a lost Septic Flesh track.



EDIT: This band has one song that's early SF-like.



You can also try this band; not a fan of them, but the similarities are there.

That's a great track. The Chasm and Cenotaph are both bands that I have always liked peripherally, but always needed to dig deeper into.

Very keen recommendations from you both. I was unfamiliar with Nostradamus, Sarcastic Terror and Morbid Silence. Thank you.
