Excepting the rare case, I want a strong vocalist with a unique sound in my music. Creative songwriting is a must, I want music to change or evolve within each song and within each album. Blues-tinged Rock, Doom and Metal, Heavy Psych and Gothic Americana are my favorite genres, but I like to explore world music, oldies and whatever sounds good.

    Damn, this is interesting. At first blush it comes across as Black Metal, but it really isn't. Vocals remind me a little of late Celtic Frost- the big, bombastic almost-yelling, but far more musical. It has a definite occult vibe and a lot of organic instrumentation, but also a post-whatever (that's the new thing, right? Post Punk, Post Metal, Post-Post, etc.) vibe. Industrial, perhaps? It's like nothing I've ever heard, but very digestable, even on the first take. Damn fine music, it is.

    Ah, Metal done right! Frequent tasteful rhythmic changeups interspersed with shredding guitar solos, excellent vocals and great production.

    The vocals and production are reminiscent of modern occult doom bands like Demon Head, but the song structures feel more like a 90s alternative metal band. In fact, it clicked when another reviewer mentioned Acid Bath, one of my all-time favorite metal bands.

    Crazy. No, this isn't an Afro tribal drum circle on the plains of the Serengeti, it's a bunch of Ukranian women belting out traditional folk songs to the accompaniment of pounding percussion. Whatever it is, it is awesome.

    I've been following this band since their fantastic 2008 release 'Nine Heavens'. Azam Ali has one of the best voices in all music of any genre from anywhere, and while I'm not generally a fan of Electronic music, they use it to accentuate the organic medieval instrumentation, rather than to make a modern Pop album.

    While they identify as being from Montreal, their roots are in Persia, and the pounding rhythms perfectly accompany the sinuous wind and string melodies, while Ali's hypnotic vocals weave a spell to entrance you. I love this band.
