Avec Tristesse

An atypical band from Brazil, Avec Tristesse are somewhat in the gothic metal camp, with dark, flowing, keyboard-enhanced song structures punctuated by the occasional black metal flourish. Vocals are both clean and black (and some backing female as well), and the band does a fine job of mixing moods. This is one of those bands that blends several familiar influences rather seemlessly, such that the result is familiar yet not directly reminiscient of any one band or even style.
