Ras Algethi was an Italian doom metal band, formed in 1993 in Milan.
Their name is Arabic for "Head of the Kneeler."
This is the name Arab astronomers gave for the star that is now called Alpha Herculis.
They are one of the pioneers of the funeral doom genre. 
The bands prevalent elements are lurching, abysmal rhythms, church organs and dense, immersive atmosphere.
Ras Algethi released two recordings, the 1993 demo “Oblita Divinitas”, 
and a full length in 1995, “Oneiricon - The White Hypnotic” released by Wounded Love Records
They disbanded soon afterwards. Key members went on to form the band Canaan.
