Oh hell yes - Silent Stream of Godless Elegy!

SSoGE is one of the most underrated metal bands of all time, and they've got a new album coming out. Even better, the first song/video is really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYER7M3 ... e=youtu.be

Czech folk/prog/doom for those not initiated. Occasionally sounds like "if Bela Bartok had a metal band" (I'd prefer they go even more in that direction).

Got to listen to the whole album, and it's a letdown. The track with the video is the best one. The rest of the album, while very diverse in some respects - with everything from a children's choir to some pretty aggressive death metal, tends to be oriented more around vocals and choruses than instrumental performances. The guitar work is very bland. I'll have to return to this, but so far I'm putting it solidly below _Navaz_ and far below the classic _Relic Dances_.
