[TOMT][SONG] Trying to find a song that sounds ethereal and gothic, song starts with male choir and has only one word as the lyrics(sounds like "Mariconda" or "Anaconda" or something close)

It's been a long time since I've heard this song so I don't exactly know all the details, but I'll try and compile all that I remember from it. It starts with a male choir that I feel is similar to the beginning of the Halo Theme. https://youtu.be/0jXTBAGv9ZQ?t=21 However, instead of having an "Oooooh" sound like the halo theme, the song has the choir sounding like they're singing the letter E("Eeeeeeee"). I don't remember if the choir is relevant for the rest of the song but the way the choir sounded felt very gothic and ethereal, which is also how I'd describe the rest of the song. IDK much about genre but it sounded a bit like darkwave. This is where my memory of the song becomes a bit fuzzy, as I don't know anything else specific except for a few key details. There was one word said throughout the entire song(though I don't know how many times it was said, probably a few) that sounded something like "Mariconda" or "Anaconda". I've tried searching up similar sounding words online like "Anacunda" "Madaconda/cunda" "Badaconda" but to no avail. The word was spoken(NOT sung) by a female in a dark tone. Finally, the last thing I remember is that one part of the song was very reminiscent of a certain part of the song "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence https://youtu.be/3YxaaGgTQYM?t=38 SPECIFICALLY from 0:38 to 0:43. I remember a part of the song reminding me a lot of this segment, with even the female singer I mentioned above singing at this exact part, though unlike the Evanescence song they weren't singing any lyrics. I don't know when this part of the song plays but it might be after one of the words was spoken by the female singer. Of course, I have no information about the artist or album, so I had to gather all the information I know about the song from the deep recesses of my brain.

The only time I heard this song was in a car, unsure if it was on radio or on my moms phone.

Might not be correct but ima take a stab with Enigma - Sadness? https://youtu.be/x4maoo4A3x4 - it begins with male choir singing and the lyrics ‘Dis-Moi’ in the middle if the song could possibly match the rhyme you were looking for?

(in reply to above comment) That isn't the song but after searching the artist online and hearing their other work(because the song you linked sounded VERY similar to the song I was trying to find) I managed to find it! Thanks so much! Song is called Mea Culpa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuYZ-Mc8iTQ
