LIQUID WOLF with one album this far seems clearly prog enough to be taken in. I'm not yet sure which category, but after further listening of the coverless promo CD of the album I can share my thoughts in the disgussion that hopefully will follow. "Prog Metal" is being mentioned but I don't quite think so. The leader's other bands include KATAYA. 
Here's some links:



This description on the latter link is good: "Liquid Wolf is Sami Sarhamaa's project and it was initially inspired by Opeth but have expanded beyond that, the music no longer strongly resembling Opeth. The music is a mix of instrumental and English vocals tracks, mostly dark retro-sounding prog with some modern low distorted (metal) guitar, sometimes quite delicate and beautiful (not during the bits with metal guitar, obviously). In addition to vocals, guitars, keys, bass and drums, a guest adds flute and tenor & soprano sax to some songs. Liquid Wolf are at their best when they’re in Camel territory, that classic Scandinavian prog style one hears in the music of Atlas, Kaipa, Tabula Rasa, Kerrs Pink, etc."

Liquid Wolf on Spotify: https://play.spotify.com/artist/6MCnINjArYfJsiqVZYCvt8
 
They are tagged as Neo Prog on this cut from the 'First Light' album (track 2, 'Lost'):
 
 
And that's certainly the case with the instrumental section in the middle...
 
Anyhow, here's the title track:
 
 
Certainly belongs here somewhere, I think.  Thumbs Up

Hmm, I don't see the whole album as very heavy. I asked my Neo team partners to have a look too.
