Heavenwood

Heavenwood's Diva places this Portuguese band squarely in the gothic dark metal camp, occupied by bands such as Crematory, Cemetary, and mid-period Amorphis. Vocals alternate between clean and death, and keyboards interweave nicely with the guitars. More than competant for the genre, not quite enough to stand them apart, but worth a listen. They have not recorded since Diva's followup (Swallow, released in 1998) and have been on a hiatus for several years, but as of May 2007 a modified lineup was active and demoing new material.
