Avernus  


Avernus plays a hybrid of post-doomdeath and atmospheric goth metal on 1997's Of The Fallen. The band has a nice melancholy sound, accentuated by liberal doses of keyboards and female vocal touches, resulting in a style somewhat reminiscient of later-period Anathema. though there is plenty of originality offered as well. The band has frequently gone dormant and a host of members have come and gone, but as of 2015 founder Rick McCoy and crew are working on new material that may yet be released.
