Dawn Of The Shaded World, the debut album from Symphonic Gothic Metal band Blood of Indigo, is an ambitious offering that immediately impresses and is probably not what you would necessarily expect from a first release. @bloodofindigo_
Carrion Vael release Abhorrent Obsessions, an album melding a strong Technical Death Metal element with Melodic and traditional Death Metal plus aspects of subtly delivered Slam as well as a symphonic edge. @carrionvael @uniqueleaderrecords
