It's another forgotten underground (and very interesting) band -
maybe even more obscure then band beginning with F from Finland:
Ukrainian Brainstorm/Graal - with more serious and melancholic approuch.

I think this forgotten band should be en par with various revealed underground 90s avant garde extreme bands such VED BUENS ENDE, DEMILICH (but not as dense), ANUBI, AGES GONE itd. 
but sound of their only full album Sigullum Naturae can not be compared to any other band (maybe mentioned above and Voivod, more weird Diabolical Masquarade, first Forgotten Silence, first Maudlin of the well, Carbonized Screaming Machines/Disharmonization are good comparison)
Loud water bass, cranky guitar but with moments of melancholic melodies, zombi vocals, weird keyboards with bit of circus melodies, flute...
Generally eclectic exellent composed tracks creating a concise album with a strange atmosphere.
It's worth trying Sigullum Naturae as an extremely original and progressive experience!

Here we have:
-Death/Black Metal in Krautrock tribal style on demo Brainstorm 1995
("Fiery Ritual" sounds like from 1970.)

-Avant-garde Progressive Metal/Rock with folk elements on Sigullum Naturae 1998 (most important album)

Full album:
or in better quality I think:

A1 Sigullum Naturae 4:15
A2 Sense And Ideal 5:11
A3 X-tro 4:11
A4 Coifrtcilmee (Instrumental) 2:54
A5 F.E.A.R. 4:43
B1 My "Total" Vision 6:20
B2 Concealed Metaphysics 3:06
B3 Grand All-Emracing 3:36
B4 Broken Within 4:38
B5 Golden Gates (Opening For Me) 3:54

Hi. Sorry that no one answered this. I just suggested this band myself and referred the team to this suggestion as well. Great band! Love how weird it is and as early as the 90s. Very innovative.
