Oium - Prae Lapsu (2017)

Oium is a neocrust/post-metal band from Moscow, Russia

Judging from their VK page, Oium has been around since 2012, but this seems to be their first official release. There's no permanent cellist in the band, so it's unclear if there will be any cello on their future releases.
