Progressive and Gothic Euro-Metal

I was inspired by Toby Driver’s interviews about the latest Kayo Dot album talking about what he calls “Euro-metal.” http://radicalresearch.org/an-interview-with-kayo-dots-toby-driver/ The bands he mentioned, some of which are on this list, I interpret as being ‘90s and ‘00s western European doom/gothic metal and progressive metal bands. I thought I’d list some of my favorites that are generally more refined and came a bit later than the era he talked about in the mid ’90s. Not necessarily any melodeath or doom metal with some keyboards and female vocals. These are the really special ones in my opinion, quite distinctive and some of which completely changed their musical style during their career. I know Agalloch is an American band, but they fit right in with these stylistically, so I included them.
