Soen - Lotus
I figured it wouldn't totally be your thing. You call it nondescript. Does anyone else sound like Soen at this point? (I know the first album was totally Tool)
Well what I meant is that their riffs and sound are not really easily pigeon holed. Some may see this as a positive. You can take it as good, but I just find the riffs(not vocals) nondescript from the sense that riffing style is hard to label as being particulary prog, doom, or power or whatever style. Maybe nondescript is the wrong word my English ain't that great.

I also played 3 Tremors finally.
It sucks, as does Ripper's album this month. Fake metal posturing.
You're really quite tiresome with the metal bashing you know that? These guys are hardly friggin' some young dudes jumping on a true metal bandwagon are they. It's complete and utter rubbish to call them fake. They've been doing the same true metal thing in their other jobs for more than 20-25 years so now they release another admittedly not very good true metal album and you accuse them of being fake. This IS true heavy metal brother. You ARE supposed to posture and ACT metal and be CHEESY! This is what the fucking genre that YOU hate so much is. We are fantasists who want to get away from reality and be heavy fucking METAL!!! That offends you obviously being a metal hater so you call it fake. Annoying you are.
Beast in Black - From Hell With Love As Nos says you have to raise an eyebrow and smile when the Greek dude starts doing his female vocals but it's all part of the charm.
I don't find it charming. I find it annoying. It's not as bad as the tremors shrieking, but it sounds stupid too.
Ok we disagree. He sounds odd but fun and he doesn't do the girl all the time. I listened again yesterday and was getting a strong early Nightwish vibe from some of the songs which ain't a bad thing in my book.
