DismissedEphel Duath: Hemmed by Light, Shaped by Darkness (2013)
Even though I kind of liked The Painter's Pallete, there is now a confirmed pattern of Ephel Duath's music making less and less sense to me with each release. I'm not saying it's not good. I won't even say it's not brilliant, because it could be. But if you say it is, I'll just have to take your word for it.
Leaf Hound: Live in Japan (2014)
The proto-metal movement spawned a lot of semi-mythical bands who quickly faded into shadow. My knowledge of it is tenuous, so I'll just take the press release on face value that Leaf Hound is a real band from the time. Reuniting them for a live set 40 years later sounds like a risky proposition, but the results from Live in Japan are certainly no train wreck. Not indispensible, but definitely respectable.
