Penumbra  


Formed in 1996, Penumbra is one of the few French bands in the gothic metal field, with their most recent album, The Last Bewitchment, bearing some strong similarities to Tristania, particularly when the choir vocals are in full force. Like Tristania and others, a variety of vocal styles and instruments are prevalent, ranging from blackened growls to female sopranos to the aforementioned choirs, to a tasteful use of the oboe in several places. They may be an album away from truly establishing their own identity, but gothic metal fans will certainly enjoy this band.
