SAVN - Gothic / Folk Metal band from Norway. The members are Carmen Elise Espenæs (MIDNATTSOL), Stig Johansen and Anders Thue (Both THE SINS OF THY BELOVED) https://www.facebook.com/SavnOfficial?fref=ts
Pete Johansen's playing also enriched early albums by Tristania and Sirenia - I wonder if he's a national institution in Norway! and agree about complexity and emotional depth, lost-souls - combined with amazing musicianship, makes this one of the greatest bands ever
If you like, please check out my instrumental project. I tried to mix Doom Metal with New Age music, and Ethnic Folk. My debut was released a week ago. You can either download, or listen to the whole album, for free at here: http://uscu.unitedstudios.ru/2013/01/roaring-empyrean-to-earths-heart.html
They are all listenable also at here, last.fm: http://www.last.fm/music/Roaring%2BEmpyrean
Please do give me your criticism, feedback, idea and comment on it, at my user page, or at the artist shoutbox.
Best regards and thank you!! \m/
