Eternal Tears Of Sorrow  

Eternal Tears Of Sorrow formed in the early nineties, with their early material being more in the death metal camp before expanding their style to move closer to gothic metal, or perhaps melodic death metal (but not the typical Swedish version of melodic death). A breakup was announced in January 2003, but two years later they announced their return, and have carried on since.
