This band is very unkown [at least to me] The Beckoning from Canada is a melodic gothic / doom metal band.  Consisting of  duo Roy and Meghann Turple supported by guest musicians.

They released a demo last year [2010], and have been featured on a few compilations, but have just recently released their full-length Demystifying The Oracle.  If you like bands as Saviour Machine, Amorphis, Far Beyond, Virgin Black, Dark Tranquility, Tristania, Parameacium, Draconian etc. Go to their bandcamp page [link below], listen to it and support them by buying the album.

The Beckoning‘ is an Avant Garde/Goth-Metal band from Saint John,New Brunswick, Canada that fuses the aggression of Extreme Metal with the majestic ambience of Gothic soundscapes.

An amalgamation of Gothic, Doom, and Melodic Death Metal along with the Avant Garde musings the band is known to exhibit, The Beckoning finds a home among those who appreciate the marriage of the ethereal and extreme.
