New York's Ghostbound are relatively new in the scene, having debuted in 2018 with the album All is Phantom, but bring a lot to the table. Frontman Alec Head has a clean, operatic style that lends itself to a lot of nuance, and their impressive arrangements blend black metal and power metal with elements of post-punk and art rock.

Formed in New York in 2017, Ghostbound are the brainchild of singer/guitarist Alec Head. Their first album, 2018's All is Phantom, was the culmination of over a decade of work by Head at refining the lyrics and song structures, during which time he played in several other New York bands, including the critically-acclaimed Kosmodemonic. Head recorded and played most of the instruments on All is Phantom on his own, later recruiting a backing band to perform the material live. This live unit soon wrote and recorded a maritime-themed follow-up EP, slyly titled Extended Play for my Sweet Mary Thyme.

Interesting suggestion, thanks for putting this out there. I just checked out Kosmodemonic recently and was pleasantly confounded.
