Ankhagram are a Russian funeral doom metal band that remained unknown to me until some weeks ago, but that just released and album that crushed me, one of the very best doom metal releases of the year so far ("Under Ruins").

The main influence of the "band" (only one member) is obviously Shape Of Despair, sharing with the finns that thrilling dark romanticism and very obscure atmospheres. Nevertheless, don't expect that sweety keyboard-drowned music that usually make the bands that get their inspiration by the likes of SoD/Swallow The Cum/My Gagging Bride (bands that I enjoy a lot myself, btw). Ankhagram took a much darker pathway, making me remember even Nortt by times.

Highly recommended.

EDIT: Funeral doom metal contest: the song "Under Ruins pt II" is... how can I say it.... "inspired", in a track of a very well known band of the genre... a beer for the first one to tell me which.

Hmm gothicy funeral doom, they're adequate, nothing special, the fact is 'Depressed Mode' and 'Ea' do this style far better and with far more interesting results.

Boring.

I also discovered this band some time ago. Indeed, "Under Ruins" is very good and well produced doom/gothic stuff. I really like the clean sound, it emphasizes the heaviness of the riffs nicely. The other albums are not even nearly as good IMO.
