in my post on wikipedia, i was complaining that the article about the chilenian doom metal band mar de grises has been deleted because it the band is “irrelevant”. hence, i thought it would be a good idea to write a bit about them. when writing the post on wikipedia, i re-started listening to them more intensely, and in fact have been listening to their two albums the tatterdemalion express and draining the waterheart pretty intensively over the last weeks.
their music is a beautiful mixture of dark, gloomy metal, intense doom, beautiful melancholic melodies. progressive elements, sometimes experimental elements, often slow, always dark. it is complex, never boring.
mar de grises is one of the bands you should keep an eye on, as they are rising and they are good.

I really like this band on the first listen. Will put them on my long shopping list. I recommend Griftegard to you who are another great doom band (slightly heavier though).

you also recommended ahab to me, whom i listened to a few times lately. i just ordered their albums, i think they’re definitively worth it :)

Both Ahab albums are great, so I am sure you will like them. I’ve checked out the latest Mar de Grises album and I am blown away. Intense stuff. Thanks for you recommendations.
