Yeah, definitely more metal, much of it probably not to your taste, either. I will say that Lifelover should be right up your alley - romantic, demented black metal. You would probably dig the Mar De Grises, too - trippy, proggy death/doom.

is this your life? said...

Here's the Mar de Grises for ya. If you don't want the link in the comments (or if you want more links), just let me know.

soundweave said...

Thanks for the Mar De Grise link Unicorn. It sounds pretty good from what I've heard so far. Got the Lifelover album too and after just 1 listen I can say it's pretty damn good and I think I'll like it even more the second time. Cheers!
