Dool

In Dool’s songs, many layered guitars and repetitions often create a semi-psychedelic, trance-like feeling of mental travel and dreaming. It’s a bit 70s, but it’s also a bit timeless and hard to really pin down. The debut album is called “Now here, there then”, and this is a good example for what I mean:

The entire album is playable for free on YouTube, but please also buy it if you like it. There are physical and digital versions.

Ghost

With their very melodic Antipope-rock, Gregorian Rock’n’Roll, their tours are continually sold out and they do a fun sort of marketing. Rumored to be a sort of all-star band, but since all the artists are Nameless Ghouls and the singer is just Papa Emeritus (I – III), it’s hard to know for sure.

In the US they are called Ghost B.C. for trademark reasons. And I think they’re even more popular there than in Europe.
