from PA BIOs

Devil Doll biography
Dark and heavy prog band from Italy & Slovenia which inspires their music on the old silent horror movies. DEVIL DOLL's music has been described as "an elaborate and bombastic collision of styles" and "a perverse, yet brilliant soundscape of some forbidden netherworld". Bands like JACULA can be pointed as an influence to this (at least) very different band.

DEVIL DOLL's albums are a journey into the unknown theatres of the unexplored soul and mind, they are like a sick cabaret of unsuspecting and, at times, soul-possessing opera. "The Girl Who Was...Death" is an interesting modern symphonic sound with a pervading air of menace. "Eliogabalus" is like a prog-metal symphony, a grandiose, overarching structure that works like a suite. I certainly didn't take a trip to heaven when I for the first time became familiar with DEVIL DOLL's many masterpieces!!! The music is not for everybody, but recommended to those who like their singers dominant. Recommended to fans of Silent horror movies! LOL

Thule biography
One of the most bizarre and interesting recent progressive rock bands, Norwegians Thule released the first (very rare) Ultima Thule and have recently released the doomy and gothic Natt, which is dark and intense progressive that is quite unique. A little Pink Floyd is evident, but more or less Thule is just Thule.

I have Ultima Thule, the first album by this Norwegian quartet. Instruments are the usual guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. There are similarities to Pink Floyd (mostly in the Gilmouresque guitar and use of space and atmosphere) and Trettioňriga Kriget (rock orientation, strong bass presence) from nearby Sweden.

There's also a bit of gothic quality to the music as you hear spoken text over howling winds (at the beginning of the first song) and there is an overall dark aura that pervades the entire album. This album is progressive the same way Trettioňriga Kriget is (or isn't the same way T. Kriget aren't). They sound like a rock band with some progressive tendencies, I guess in a manner similar to RUSH.

If you like Trettioňriga Kriget, you'll probably like Thule. If you don't care for T. Kriget, you'll probably want to stay away.

Don't know Thule, but I voted (for DD) anyway!
Only have "Girl", but would get more if I run into it.
