This week I came across the Italian goth/neo-classical/folk band Ashram via Facebook. The music really took my breathe away. It was just so good that I was literally brought to tears.
I don't ever remember hearing music that left me speechless like Ashram's music did. I ended up ordering through ebay a copy of Ashram's second album (I believe) Shining Silver Skies. It will make up for the not so good Pins and Needles by The Birthday Massacre which just felt like a regurgitation of their other albums with a bit of hard rock thrown into the mix.
I also have been really enjoying some Chandeen, Irfan, and sToa.
