As I'm sure a bunch of people can attest, I have nothing but love for Finland, and there's plenty more Finnish metal bands I can post, but with the current direction of this thread I don't think anyone here wants Behexen, Satanic Warmaster, or Rotten sound. :P

But those bands are fantastic!
On a side note. What do you think of these bands?

Montrith - I have absolutely nothing but love and respect for Finland and it's music.
1) Made it through about 5 minutes. Too slows/borings for me. In general, I find doom metal extremely boring (and pretty much anything else slow). They had some interesting work with textures coming at around 3 min, but not enough to really hold my interest. Also clean singing without a proper transition or setup coming off abrasive vocals always rubs me the wrong way.
2) I'm noticing a trend here. This is MUCH better. Excellent layering. The interlude is fucking fantastic. Linked to a couple buddies. Excellent find. Thanks!
3) I feel like I'm at ren faire. Where are my pantaloons?? A lot of this works and a lot of it doesn't. I want them to take a step back and simplify, they're trying to do too much and nothing really stands out. :| Doing a little reading it seems like this is the closer to a full album, which is probably a little divorced from the context of the album. I'll listen to a couple other tracks and see if I like em better.
4) This is excellent. Really like the slow evolution aped from electronica. Hungary has put out a ton of fantastic stuff lately, come to think of it. Great scene there.

5) Based on the cover art, I'm going to like the hell out of this. Upon listening, it's ok. Nothing exceptional, which is a bit disappointing. USBM has a lot of great stuff lately. High hopes? :/
6) I like this a lot more.
Your taste seems to extend to longer tracks (everything you linked was around 10 minutes), with major transitions occurring halfway through. It's a pretty peculiar set of stuff!
