Recommendation: Lute (UK, prog metal/rock)
Here's a very interesting group I found on Bandcamp - Lute.
They have this raw sound yet there is ambition in their writing. While it sounds at times like simplistic metal with a crude guitar tone (not a bad thing in itself), I was taken by their songs' accessibility yet intricacy at the same time. Listen to the two ending songs in particular to hear an epic writing approach, which at times reminded me of the one-song album Exist by Thesyre.
Give them a listen in their Bandcamp.
