Recommend some metal that doesn't

Sound like cookie monster! Somebody in another thread posted some stuff on Ahab (the giant), sounded cool so I checked it out. I was digging the dark, atmospheric vibe...and then cookie monster came on and started growling lol. Why do they do that silly voice in metal? Anyway, any recommendations for something like "Orion" from MOP...largely instrumental, but dark and moody? Phone Post 3.0

Hmmm.

Instrumental?

Check out Native Daughters.

Russian Circles
Woods of Desolation
Isis
Cult of Luna

How heavy you want? These guys sing heavy but I'd say they avoid the cookie monster / doom vocals. Ghost Brigade has that dark, moody sound you described.







Iced Earth
