If you don't own it already, the re-issue of Unquestionable presence would probably be worth obtaining as it contains pre-production demos featuring the original bassist Roger Patterson.

Isn’t there already a review of Creepmime’s Shadows on this site?

I'm looking forward to the re-release of Crematory's material.

Cynic (though the demos aren't that bad)

Unholy (Finland) are psychotropically charged Doom Metal. Introspective, time-signature-shifty, and bizarre--the band creates an engulfing sound which borders on the brink of insanity. Inhuman screams to disoriented phrases to doom metal sludge, it's all represented in a rather loose fashion.

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.


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

rottting christ - before their triarchy of lost lovers album...

necromantia - all


Rotting Christ were one of the prime contributors to the Greek black metal scene. The EP, "Passage to Arcturo" and and debut "Thy Mighty Contract" come highly recommended.

I haven't heard Necromantia's material which came after "Ancient Pride", though i can say that their Split album with Varathron, "Black Arts Lead to Everlasting Sins", and "Scarlet Evil Witching Black" are both phenomenal pieces of black metal. Necromantia bear a unique sound with their use of 8-string bass as an intrsument for rhythm while incorporating neoclassical leads and sparse use of orchestration to create an atmosphere of seductive evil.

Keyboards in death metal have worked in some cases, videlicet, middle-era Pestilence, or on the opener of Entombed's debut. What Amorphis attempted with "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" wopuldn't have been a bad idea either had they not relinquiished their embrace of death metal so wholly. In general it fits well with doomy, melodic death metal so long as bands eschews the all-too-common cheese that seems to spoil most of such efforts.

The band Nocturnus also utilized keyboards into their structure of death metal.

Very much in the vain of the NYDM bands such as Morpheus Descends and Suffocation, though don't expect anything out of the ordinary from "Sermon of Mockery".

How is Adramelech's EP, "Seven" in comparison to their other works?
