They are from Turkey and it is surprising how much they sound like FALAO-era The Sisters of Mercy.

Goth rock (in a combo with New Wave and Post-Punk) is my personal favourite over everything else, however it's pretty hard to find my particular flavor of Goth rock as it shifted so much from the post-punk & British Goth rock scene in the 80's and early 90's to it's 2000's 'equivalent' bands like Evanescence and Faith No More (even though it's not Goth rock it became one of the new staples of the foreign and millennial-UK Goth scene) really put me off foreign Goth bands, for the most part, as I feel that it was such a thoroughly British music form (With heavy German influence of course) but thank you for sharing that, damn good, I miss the swaying melancholy beats in modern examples (But this being a band from 2006 gives me hope for a resurgence ahah), It's nice (This song), it sounds like a mix of Joy Division and Sisters, a good mix in my eyes, wish I knew Turkish now ahah - They lyrics are an integral part of Goth rock, I'll have to find a translation.
(Glad to have some discussion in this thread for once too! Music is one of my favourite things to talk about despite my personal lack of musical talent - I know a couple of songs on tin-whistle that's about it).
