Aldebaran - Embracing The Lightless Depths

Aldebaran's Embracing The Lightless Depths is available on the Profound Lore Records Bandcamp. This is straight up funeral doom, but not of the crushing kind. Aldebaran is all about the guitar textures, subtle tempo changes, and exploring the negative space between the riffs. The band utilize their guitarists to their fullest; the quieter parts are filled with intricate interplay, some of the heavier passages sounds like they are painting with washes of distortion. Not the heaviest funeral doom band out there, not the most melodic either, the melodies are kind of hinted at, but certainly one of the most interesting. Check out Cheryl Prime's review from Cvlt Nation and this detailed one from The Obelisk.
