Seeking opinions?

I came across a similar description from certain reviews and sources. Their later works apparently move towards creating a more melancholy sound but still bearing an unorthodox approach to doom metal.

Thanks  

(If anyone knows where i can hear samples of Unholy's early albums then it would be much appreciated)  


I've just found them shared on DC++.
so far they don't even come close to Thergothon or Skepticism. but perhaps i'm being unfair in comparison?

vocals are particularly irritating. (i'm sampling the second ring of power)

I would actually say that Isengard is disappointing in that it's so inconsistent. The album Hostmorke really has only two great tracks: Neslepaks and Thornspawn Chalice, whilst the rest sounds like it'd be better left unreleased; it's not horrible, just not ready.


In the song, Nestlepaks, the main melody sounds like a traditional melody I've heard somewhere. Or maybe Edvard Grieg penned it? Or maybe it was in a movie? At any rate,  I know I've heard it before, and not in a metal song or anything. Anyone know what it may be? If it's a specifically Norwegian folk melody, it's one that's spread beyond that country, because I know I've heard it before, and I live in the U.S.

Abruptum: random noize excesses dressed up as profundity. We're all so mystified that we don't bother to listen to it.

Nuclear Death: the conclusion of extremity reached through death/thrash/grind. Makes a whole lot of bands redundant. Massive, though indeciferable, sounds.

No, you are not. At first I found them interesting, but it never grew into anything else. They basically have a uniqe sound - nothing more, nothing less.

Ah, I shall now take this opportunity to listen to this delightful album again so that I can best convey it's nature: combining the most atmospheric elements of evocative death metal, melodic black metal, and an interactive variant of doom on multifarious levels, Ceremonium create a musical journey which enraptures the listener through mesmerizing discourse. Structurally unique, the skill at which this style is played is quite refreshing, and this band are one of few to have ventured into a realm of originality. Their majestic cover of "Cromlech," and the very fact that they have chosen to cover this particular song, elucidate their forthright and authentic attempt at creative artistic expression. In all honesty, this style of music is probably most akin to a progression of the death medal anticipated by pioneers Amorphis.

I liked "Obscuritatem..." and the other one called..I probably bungled this title, sorry..."Militans..." or something. But definitely check out  "Obscuritatem.." really awful sounds from Hell. Not as structured as "Industrial" which makes it sound way more improvised and genuinely "kult" in my opinion.
Stay away from "Evil genius" most of it is just awfully boring Death Metal.

Looking for opinions on these bands:

Blessed in Sin: I have "Par Le Sang Du Christ" and find it to be an incredibly tedious listen - how are their other works?
