The continued evolution of Ras Algethi resulted in the creation of Canaan. Leaving behind their doom metal ways they kept the sound and qualities of RA, but morphed it with some gothic, darkwave and ambient experimenting. Again, you can see a clear link to Into The Pandemonium era Celtic Frost at times via the Monumentum influence. But that is only as a distant guide post. For Canaan have come so much farther. There is an undeniable romantic quality floating through the music of Canaan... Which gives way to loss when they work on the ambient textures in their earlier works. Brand New Babylon sees the band beginning to morph again into a more gothic act. Really, done quite well. Xul offers you the first 3 albums of Canaan. Start with Walk Into My Open Wound.
