Any opinions on them being added to "Extreme prog metal" or some other category?  I think they are as prog as many metal bands on here, but that may be just me being silly (cause I'm a fan)...  They have a lot of "epics", and a complexity that most black/folk metal bands lack...

you can listen to a few samples at http://www.myspace.com/moonsorrowofficial.

Edit: it seems like they may have been simply ignored more than anything... MikeEnRegalia posted this review and even categorized them as prog.

have few albums on CD-Rs...interesting stuff, but not much Prog. I'd say "good and unconventional extreme Folk-Metal", which is waaaaay better than "not enough Prog Metal"

if you haven't heard their last two albums, then maybe they could change your opinion... cause they did start out mostly pure folk metal before shifting more progressive

V: Havitetty released this year is full blown prog in my opinion, while Verisakeet is also definitely progressive...

edit: seems like they are cleared to be added... cool
