ThanatoSchizo  


ThanatoSchizo was founded in 1998, with the shortened name Thanatos (no relation to the Dutch Thanatos), aiming to try something different in the metal world. Under that name, a self-financed 1999 EP Melégnia was put out, but they opted for the more elaborate name ThanatoSchizo following a shift of personnel. Their style is hard to pinpoint, as they clearly have a multitude of influences incorporated into their sound. The vocals range from death growls to female stylings to a fair bit of clean male singing, and at the core the musical style is a doom/gothic blend, with a good deal of variance in the songwriting and pace. The more recent InsomniousNightLift is clearly the more mature and developed of their two full-lengths, with Schizo Level living up to its name by being a little less focused. These guys really don't sound like any single band, but one occasional soundalike might be Forgotten Silence, particularly given their vocal styles and transitioning from hardened guitars to quieter interludes. Those into the more esoteric side of doomy gothic metal might well find something of interest here. After five full-length albums, they announced their retirement in September 2011.
