Warthur
Chilean doom metal masters Procession stride up to Messiah Marcolin-era Candlemass and swipe the crown right off their heads. Yes, they are a little derivative of predecessor bands in the traditional doom metal genre (F. Plaza's vocals even take on a Messiah-like quality here and there), but this sort of doom metal is inherently nostalgic in any event, and like heroes such as Solitude Aeturnus and Candlemass, Procession are able to take their influences and work their own magic with it - in particular, they have one of the best commands of melody and texture I have seen in a metal context for a good long time. These guys are most definitely ones to watch on the doom metal front.
