First I'd like to start off letting you know this is my first newsletter for the group, so forgive me if I'm a tad rusty in my reviews / layout.
A peculiar find among this group's band recommendations, Phlebotomized is a band I have been a pretty big fan of for a few years now. However, they won't be releasing anything fresh soon due to their unfortunate split it 1997. But I tarry... Phlebotomized's first full-length, "Immense Intense Suspense" is one of few DM bands to use the violin consistently, and to a greater extent, use it well. The vocals are reminiscent of Effigy-era Suffocation, but also feature clean vocal periods throughout. The guitar work is melodic, progressive and heavy, much less crushing and brutal than typical bands of the genre which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The leads further peruse an epic yet somber feeling to the listener. Another stand-out point of the band is its use of keyboards to lend to an atmospheric vibe to the album's composition. …

Post the bands/albums that have dismally low number of listeners to make them get out of the underground and to finally allow them to get the credit they deserve.
Shall we start? 3... 2... 1... GO!!!
Band name: Lykathea Aflame
Country: Czech Republic
Genre: Technical symphonic progressive extreme death metal (although it's not that appropriate, it's hard to classify)
Number of listeners on last.fm: 4,316
Formed in: 1999
Disbanded in: 2000 (?)
Recommended albums: Elvenefris (2000)
Short description: when it comes to the almighty Lykathea Aflame, I'm always at a loss of words. To me it is the most perfect album ever recorded in any genre of music. The lyrics are spirit-touching, the atmosphere is crushingly overwhelming and the musicianship is truly remarkable…
