Mythological Cold Towers
ew Brazilian bands are from the Doom sub-genre but Mythological Cold Towers would be a pioneer in that movement there with their 1996 debut Sphere Of Nebaddon with Samej (vocals), Nechron (guitars), Leonard (bass), Flagellum (keyboards), Hamon (drums) and Akenaton (keyboards). The debut would prove to be a prototypical Doom/Death album much in the style of early My Dying Bride or Paradise Lost. Although the album failed to gain marks for being original it was nonetheless a competent release within the genre. The follow-up release of Remoti Meridiani Hymni (2000), sans Akenaton, added Gothic and Ethnic influences into a decidedly more original work.
