I would like to suggest Effloresce for inclusion in PA. They've released their debut EP "Shades of Fate" in late 2009 and are currently working on their first full-length album. Their music is clearly influenced by bands like Opeth and Dream Theater but with a twist - they have a female vocalist. Who also does death metal growls now and then... or plays the flute, adding a bit of a Camel touch to it all. Quite an unusual mix, eh? I happen to think they pull it off very well!

I like their debut EP (three songs, each about 10 minutes long!) quite a bit and the only English reviews that I'm aware of are pretty damn positive, too:

They were on the MP Tribute album. Very Opeth-like with a lot of great prog metal influences as well.

hey guys! I'm Dave, guitarist in Effloresce and finally managed it to register here.

Yeah, would be absolutely fantastic to get Effloresce included in this "circle" here. We have an full-length-album coming out this fall and will play some really cool shows, so we're alive and worth to be "noticed" i guess. :) Make it happen, folks!

^ The band has been evaluated and approved.
But we have truckloads of bands to add, so if you could produce a short bio for PA we could add the band right away!
