    As I have recently returned to my personal project of creating wiki stubs for demoscene artists (primarily from the 90s), it has caused me to pause and reflect on the development of my personal musical taste over my life. As this is an inherently conceited subject, I will not be submitting this anywhere or promoting it much beyond my profile. (In fact, that's why I don't link the larger artists I mention, as it actually shows up on artist pages as activity and I don't want a flood of people reading this.)

    3. Summon The Crows: Summon the Crows hail from Oslo, Norway. So far they only have a single full length and a a couple demo releases.
