Listening to Creepmime - Shadows and Winter - Into Darkness. Two very different kinds of doom metal, and both bands that I think should have either continued in this vein and refined their music or at least strongly influenced some other outfit. Oh well, maybe in decade or two. I am sure Into Darkness had a DLA (or something) review, if anyone knows where I can find it, would be very appreciated. Creepmime was a late addition to the Archives, and for me was a chance recommendation that turned out to be an amazing, lasting album. Shadows is well worth a listen, it sounds a bit weepy like some doom metal can but under the surface its not like that at all.
If any one of you have missed either of these, give them a go.
Edit: A LARM review for Winter (not the one I am after) which is a bit spotty. Says there is no lead work, there is and some very interesting stuff to boot. Must mean big solos I suppose.
