Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy

The ambitiously named Silent Stream Of Godless Elegy belongs to that small cadre of eclectic Czech bands, alongside Forgotten Silence, Love History, and Root. SSoGE don't sound like any of those bands (nor do they really sound like anyone else), but they do share the same passion for interesting and diverse music. They describe themselves as "Slavonic pagan doom", and that's a reasonable initial description. The pace of their music is on the slow side, befitting a doom band, and with both a cellist and a violinist making major contributions, one does find plenty of somber moments. But their inclusion of traditional folk melodies really sets this band apart, giving them a strangely upbeat style that effectively contrasts the doom elements. Like their aforementioned countrymen, the songwriting is quite diverse, with no two albums, or even songs, being very similar to each other. A very intriguing band.
