Fabulae Dramatis are a Belgium-based band whose music is best described as progressive metal (with death metal vocals at times) and avant-guard metal. The band is currently comprised of four performing members, two of Slavic background and two from Colombia. Members are:

Isabel Restropo - vocals, sitar, harmonium, sax, keys, lyrics, programming.
Hamlet - bass, vocals, keys, production, song writing
Daniel Diaz - guitar, bass, writing
Maxime Moreira - drums

Isadora Cortina, a Mexican woman currently living in Norway and singing and playing keyboards for the band Ancestral Legacy, is a key recording and writing member but not a performing member.

The latest album also had Wesley Beernaert on vocals but he has since left the band.

Both Isabel and Daniel have studied at music academies in Europe.

Their second album, "Solar Time's Fables" was released in 2016 and their debut, "Om" in 2012.

"Solar Time's Fables" is said to be less avant-guard or experimental than "Om" but nevertheless combines a slow and heavy death metal approach with operatic singing, clean vocals, and aggressive vocals. The band included 15 guest musicians on "Om" and 11 on "Solar Time's Fables". The range of non-traditional instruments include harmonium, saxophone, flute, accordion, djembe, cello and violin.

The band formed in 2011 when Isabel found Hamlet and Isadora on MySpace and contacted them about recording some music with her for a personal project. That project evolved into Fabulae Dramatis.

There is an excellent interview with the band where they talk about their history here:

Good find. These are fine for AG Metal. You want to add them seeing as they are your find? If not let me know and I'll fit them in.

Thanks.

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply! Sure, I can add them but I'll need a few days to get there. Things are piling up around here this week. But, yeah, I'll do it then. Thank you!

They have some shows lined up for the summer, starting this weekend. I promised Hamlet (bass, vocals) I'd get them on here by Saturday night, Japan time.

Hamlet a friend of your then, or someone who randomly contacted you?
