Origin: Milan, Italy
Genres: Doom Metal

Ras Algethi  


Apparently named for the star now known as Alpha Herculis, this obscure Italian combo released a single album in 1995 without a lot of fanfare. This is a fine example of atmospheric, minimalist doom metal, heavy on feeling rather on crushing riffs. The heavy use of keyboards often steers this into funeral doom territory, though purists may not consider this band a true representation of that style. The vocals are often clean, sometimes chanted, though with tortured distant screams scattered throughout as well. It's a shame this album didn't get more acclaim at the time, as even with extreme doom's limited popularity, this is a wondrous, emotionally charged album that doom fans should easily take to.
