The Vision Bleak  


This is something a bit different. A studio duo (fleshed out with various session members when they play live), The Vision Bleak plays a rather unique brand of gothic, horror-tinged metal, with the dominant vocal style (a deep male gothic tone, almost semi-spoken at times) forming a moody, haunting atmosphere (several excellent female soprano vocals are in evidence as well). There's a near-perfect balance of grandiose arrangements and straightforward riffing, and this is a pretty original sound (occasionally Hollenthon comes to mind, but that's about it). Very enjoyable stuff, highly recommended.
