Decoryah - Fall-Dark Waters (1996)
Decoryah were a doomy but not quite doom metal band from Finland, whose lyrical themes are summed up on Metal Archives as follows: 'Astral, mystical, sorrow, love, water'. How can you go wrong? This is their second and last full album, 'Fall-Dark Waters'. It was released on Metal Blade in 1996, but is now out of print. It has become a cult classic in some circles, and with good cause: cute and/or whiny vocals, keys, flute and strings alongside the more traditional metal instruments, chilled, melancholy vibe (don't say new age), a bit psychedelic even? In any case, they really had their own thing going there. Don't know what happened to them, but this is nice to return to once in a while. Hear this.
