Description

Atmospheric Doom

Akelei is one of few doom bands which create melodic doom metal of the lighter and more romantic-melancholic kind, but without drawing on influences from the Peaceville Three school.

Wether the band plays hard doom metal with a soft edge or soft doom metal with a hard edge, it's really hard to tell.
