I'd like to propose Uaral for inclusion into Progarchives, under Experimental/Post Metal or Prog Folk. (Depending on what you think of the samples) Smile

Band Biography:

Uaral is a two peice band from Chile, that fuses an eclectic mixture of Latin inspired classical guitar, neo-folk textures and Doom metal vocals and structures. The band was formed in 1996 by Aciago (Instruments) and Caudal (Vocals), since then, the pair have recorded four demos, two full length albums and an EP. Their debut album, Sounds of Pain was released in 2005, followed by 2007's Lamentos A Poema Muerto, which can be generously downloaded for free from Uaral's last.fm webpage. Themes of nature, loss and despair are common in both the music and lyrics of Uaral's compositions, however, quiet songs are apt to morph into movements of despair and doom-laden power, based primarily around the truly unique vocals of Caudal.

Uaral's songs are often based around long acoustic folk passages, with a mixture of deep, gutteral doom-like growls, choral clean singing and forlorn screams. The slow, atmospheric sound is complemented by stark orchestration and often emotional guitar work, both acoustically and with a clean-tone electric guitar. Caudal's unique vocals are one of the most interesting aspects of their music, and really defy any attempted categorisation. Uaral as a band are wholly unique, and while comparisons to other bands like Agalloch and other Folk Doom bands seem obvious, one can only experience Uaral as a separate entity. A truly wonderful gem of Chilean music.


Why should Uaral be listed on Progarchives.com?

  • Uaral possess a unique quality which sets them apart from other folk/metal/doom bands. Long and experimental instrumentation, combined with technical instrumentation and eclectic vocals completes an experience seldom created by others before. Uaral are not only a highly emotional and engaging band, but also conatin the progressive spirit highly regarded by Prog musicians everywhere.

I´ve added Uaral to the PM chart on Progfreak for evaluation.
 
Is the bio one we are allowed to use for PA if Uaral is cleared?

Thanks I´ll mention in the PMT thread that there is a bio written. That way there´s a chance for a faster evaluation. Thanks for the suggestion.

This is mostly acoustic guitar music with occasional electric guitar solos, everything pretty standard. Not prog to my ears, sorry. I'd like it if weren't for the ridiculous vocals LOL

Well it´s definitely not your average acoustic guitar music now is it? I think it´s rather innovative and pretty experimental too. I´ve voted yes. You can follow the voting development here: http://progfreak.com/home/progarchives?path=pm/nw&block=8 - http://progfreak.com/home/progarchives?path=pm/nw&block=8
 
There are no guarantees that they will be added. Three yes votes will clear them and I´ll make sure to post the decision in this thread. Be patient. Some evaluations takes a long time. If you take a look at the list of artists that the PMT are currently evaluating I think the expected long time-frame is pretty self-explanatory.
