    This will be a parallel to the visual art version of this thread in the general lounge only this one focuses on music. If the band's name is a name, then it should be filled under the second word so Frank Zappa would go under Z. Any other name should go by the first letter. Ignore "The". Try and post more unknown bands so that we can discover new music, which is the point of this thread. Write a little about the band so we know what to expect and then post a few youtube videos ( [ yt ] [ / yt ] ) and/or the bands myspace. Album/logo/band pictures are cool too.

    I'll start:

    The Axis of Perdition

    Deleted Scenes is one of the darkest/scariest albums I've ever heard.

    The Axis of Perdition's output comprises black metal experimentation with industrial music and dark ambient textures. The Axis of Perdition's debut album stated that "Axis of Perdition plays something there isn't words for yet (exclusively)".

    Their sound is primarily based on distorted guitars with black metal vocals, programmed drums, and discordant sound effects including screams and static. The black metal aspects of the music are digitally distorted, interspersed with atmospheric soundscapes formed by synthesizers and field recordings. The Axis of Perdition's tracks tend to feature shifting free-form arrangements that lack a typical verse-chorus structure and tend toward lengthiness (one such track, from Deleted Scenes from the Transition Hospital, is over twelve minutes long).

    Tapping inspiration from H. P. Lovecraft, Ramsey Campbell and the Silent Hill games (their EP Physical Illucinations in the Sewer of Xuchilbara is named for the dark deity of the games) as well themes of urban decay and mental illness, The Axis of Perdition are often compared to groups like Anaal Nathrakh and Blut aus Nord for their similar grim, urban industrial metal aesthetics.

    Neat thread. My contribution: Hallucinogen (aka Simon Posford).

    He's a European psy-trance artist. In addition to his own stuff, he's had various collaborations with other artists under various group names (Shpongle, Celtic Cross, Younger Brother, etc). Good stuff if you're into electronic music, esp trance.

    Ulver

    Multi-disciplinary Norwegian band. They've gone through so many genres it's ridiculous. They've got something for everyone. I'll post links based on chronology with the genre above.

    Prog/Folk Black Metal:



    Black Metal:



    Neo-Folk:



    Electronic:



    Post Rock:



    ... and much, much more!

    VED BUENS ENDE

    VED BUENS ENDE (meaning “At the end of the rainbow”) was founded by Carl-Michael Eide(drums, vocals) in 1994. Joined by former members of groups of the Norwegian Black Metal scene Hugh Steven James Mingray(also known as “Skoll”, ULVER)and Yusaf Parvez(DØDHEIMSGARD), the musicians aimed to write music outside the limited borders of the scene. Their first release, a demo EP titled “Those who Caress the Pale” and consisting of five tracks rooted in Black Metal, was recorded and distributed in 1994 through Ancient Lore Creations. Meanwhile, the writing process for a full-length album has begun under the influence of such artists as COIL, UNIVERSE ZERO and SWANS, as well as classical music. Signed under Misanthropy Records, the group released a follow-up to the EP during the October of 1995, their first and, so far, only full-length titled “Written in Waters”. Still influenced by the atmosphere and the vibe of the Norwegian Black Metal scene, yet not so much influenced by its aesthetics, the album was way ahead of its time and perfected the group’s ideas, developing a surreal, unique and avant-garde sound which hadn’t been achieved by anyone before. Revolutionary and challenging, VED BUENS ENDE’s debut is an album that predicted the rise of a Norwegian scene commonly referred to as Post-Black Metal. However, the project somehow didn’t move on as its members were too busy with their numerous other groups.

    Fortunately for us all, VED BUENS ENDE have reformed in 2006, replacing Steven James with Petter Berntsen on bass and adding a new drummer Einar Sjursø, both from Eide’s other project titled VIRUS, allowing Carl-Michael to stick to vocals and guitar duties. Their second album is planned to be recorded the same year and released in 2007. Stay tuned!

    VED BUENS ENDE’s only album so far, “Written in Waters”, is highly recommended to all intellectual fans of Progressive Music, including but not limited to avant-gardists and fans of the Norwegian Post-Black scene; as it is not merely a landmark of Norwegian Progressive Music, but also an atmospheric, brilliant, timeless record.
