A Canorous Quintet

This wonderfully named band played standard, well-executed melodic death metal for much of the 90's, finally deciding to break up in 1999. Several years later the exact same fivesome came back together, first going under the name The Plague and then (following a signing to Metal Blade Records) as This Ending. Originally this looked like a reborn band with a new name, but it now seems appropriate to list that band and this one as separate entities. While the guys continued as This Ending for some time (and technically may yet play or record under that name), A Canorous Quintet material surfaced in 2012, and in 2018 (still a quintet, but now with only three of the original five) a live album and a re-recording of their The Only Pure Hate album were released.
