Fleurety

Fleurety is one of the oddest left-field black metal bands to emerge in a long time, rivalling Arcturus and even Ulver in their quirkiness, enough so that black metal is hardly a descriptive term for them at all. Their style is an odd mixture of jazz, black metal, and some vague progressive overtones -- and that's on Min Tid Skal Komme, which is almost conventional compared to their later releases. Vocals range from black shrieks to female crooning, though compared to other bands the vocals in general are more understated. Essentially a two-man project (though the guest list on the Department of Apocalyptic Affairs release contains several well-known musicians from the Norwegian black metal community), Fleurety is one of those bands that, even after repeated listens, feature songs/parts that make one scratch their head and ask "Huh?". But while some parts of their music are seemingly incomprehensible, there are many times where the end result is just plain cool. It takes an open mind (and some repeated efforts) to get into music like this, but it's well worth the effort. The band has struggled with record labels that don't seem to know how to present them (not surprising), and so they are more or less on hiatus until this situation can be rectified.
