Modern Metal Masterpieces (pt 6, Black Celebration)?

Well, I figured since I had started doing a series of questions to highlight early Metal, in my "Classic Heavy Metal Replays", that I should also likewise showcase that greatness that is to be found in much of today's metal too.

I dislike the newer Metalheads trashing the classics..but just as lame is the older crowd whining that there is "No Good Metal Anymore". This is attempt to show them how rich and diverse Modern Metal really is. I'll be focusing mostly on POST-2000 Metal.

Today I am featuring a Gothic Black Metal band from Turkey. One of the things I ttruly love about them, is that Onur not only possesses a Shriek rather similiar to Dani Filth, but can do lower more gutteral vocals AND does clean, deep baritone singing too. They intersperse this wis clean female vocals in the modern Gothic Metal tradtion, along with a more symphonic/melodic approach to music. Even then though, they have no trouble kicking in the heavy Black feel. This is from their only LP, released in 2006.

MQ: Thoughts and Opinons?
MQ2: Now any other singers that can cover the same spectrum of vocals they do?

MQ3: Do you prefer actual Black Metal and it's sub-genres, or prefer it when it's used to "Blacken" something else, like Death or Power Metal?

BQ- What is your favorite band that has only released ONE album?
