Another cool Dutch metal band, is the post-metal/hardcore (think Baroness, Cult of Luna, etc.) outfit Ortega, from Groningen.
They released a concept album titled ‘1634’, in January 2010, which was mastered by JB van der Wal (who seems to be mastering almost everything metal coming from the north of the Netherlands nowadays, and does a good job I might add) and the intriguing artwork was created by Robert and Paul from Straw Dogs.
The grunt of Richard in combination with the softer but haunting guitar parts is definitely one of the things that attracts me to their music. Good stuff.
I would say: give it a try:
