I also heard some 90s influence in there too, and couldn’t put my finger on it.
Last night I realized that the vocals remind me of another heavy band that did a turn to “less-metal/more-alt” territory in the 90s: Corrosion of Conformity. Some of the vocals and quite a few of the guitar licks brought to mind their albums Blind and Deliverance, which I love.

Dark Side of the Moon
Sweet mellotron on that track. Definitely digging this.
