New three-piece band from Germany. I'm on the fence of deciding whether it could be considered doom metal or not. Half of it is really bleak, slow post-rock stuff, whereas the other half could easily be considered atmospheric doom. Really beautiful, gentle vocals. Makes me think of a mash up between Esben and the Witch, Akelei, and 40 Watt Sun.

Yes, this is very good and it's certainly doomy enough. :D

Aythis; a solo project founded by Lethian Dream's singer. It's a quite ancient release and the project's only one as it seems, but I don't think it's already been mentioned on this forum.

And the new Cold in Berlin is very tasty as well:

Grind band Cloud Rat have released a one-off EP that shows them dipping into more ethereal wave sounding material. A very stark contrast from their typical stuff, it's beautiful, while also unsettling and depressive at the same time. Interesting hearing their vocalist, who typically does really ugly screams, do gentle clean vocals.

This one isinteresting; curious atmo, nocturnal mid-paced doomy stuff, at times psychedelic, at others a bit jazzy, cottony and dreamy... it reminds me of undergroud acts like Forlis, Ekove Efrits, playing their score in subtle half tones. Really good.

The female voice is ever present, nice, soft, emotional, but there's also a black-ish male voice now and then.

An eerie mix of doomy post-metal and ethereal wave stuff, kind of similar to Chelsea Wolfe's Hiss Spun album, but more dissonant and avant-garde sounding as opposed to gothic sounding.

Nice, but I find the previous one, Ghosts, to be better... the two tracks she released in a split with Illimitable Dolor are also great...

CURSE has put a new album out. It's the same kind of Post-punk-ish doomy electro music. Excellent

Say, that Blóð song is pretty good. I'm looking forward to hearing more of them.

very good post-doom. It's a trend, definitely.
