Just a quick heads up for a great band that have been going since 2004. Four studio albums and a live album, all excellent.

www.paatos.com

Recommended if you like melancholic post-progressive rock (I'm sure there must be such a thing...)

Here they are on Youtube.

... and here's extracts of my review of their new album:

Fans of melancholic Swedish prog rock will likely already know of Paatos, but the general music-enjoying public perhaps aren't as aware of this group as they could be. The extraordinary 2004 debut "Timeloss" showed a band of superb musicians creating exciting, complex music, featuring the amazing drumming of Huxflux Nettermalm and the cool vocals of Petronella Nettermalm; a definite King Crimson influence pervading the release. "Kallocain" followed, showing the band's ability to write concise and memorable songs, and then the equally outstanding "Silence Of Another Kind." After a live album, a change of record labels and the arrival of new bassist Ulf Rockis Ivarsson, Paatos now deliver their fourth studio album "Breathing"...

... I've enjoyed the music of Paatos for a number of years now, and I have to say this new album is easily up to the standard of the preceding three, which is to say it is very good indeed. Fans of complex, progressive-influenced rock who prefer song-based structures to longer pieces will enjoy it, and it comes highly recommended from me.

Go enjoy!
Very Happy
