Ghost Brigade http://www.ghostbrigade.net/ are a Finnish band usually billed as Progressive Death, and while there are plenty of Opeth style growls and atmospherics on the album I'm familiar with, there is also a significant post-sludge sound that references Neurosis and Cult of Luna too.
 
The band has released three studio albums to date, the latest being last year's, "Until Fear No Longer Defines Us" on Season Of Mist who's site provides a good detailed biography http://www.season-of-mist.com/bands/ghost-brigade.
 
 
The third album (along with their first two) can be streamed here -
 
 
And here are some album reviews -
 
 
 
Many thanks.

It's weak on the prog side, but I'll give it a go with the team.

Oop, looks like they've been previously rejected, but the band also has released an album in the time since. Would like us to try a re-evaluation? It would require a unanimous yes vote, but it might be feasible.

Mmm, I'll leave that to you, Andy. Seriously, I really enjoyed the album and while the prog certainly isn't in your face, the structures and references in the albuum made me think it would be a shoe-in.
I'm suggesting I leave it to you as it would need your vote too. If you feel you can support it, it'll be worth pushing it back to the team. If you don't think you'll give it your vote, it fails at the first hurdle, doesn't it? Which would be a shame, but so be it.
Thanks for listening anyway!

Hmm... I'll try to find the whole album and give it a listen, and if I think that I'd vote yes, I'll give it a go.

The whole album is streamable on the myspace link given by Chris in the o.p. (In fact all their albums are streamable in full at myspace). This band was originally evaluated based solely on their first album by the look of it: http://progfreak.com/Ghost-Brigade-92977.html?path=pa/recent. They were rejected 4 years ago - before 'Isolation Songs' was released, but then UMUR added them back into the chart a year later (presumably because the new album had just been released) and voted 'yes'...but nobody else from the team at that time voted, so it seems to have just hung in mid-air ever since. Shocked
Sounds like a mixed bag overall to me, but despite this I reckon there's definitely enough prog contained within these albums to get them in now.

Andy, I take it you decided not to go with this one then?
