Just asking for death metal or black metal is far too vague if you're looking for a specific sound. You might not like the terminology, which is neither here nor there to me, but by asking for raw and astral BM I have now found a bunch of deadly bands along the lines of what I wanted so it works for me.

Ya, I nearly always skip a band if I see the term Atmospheric Black Metal in their description. As you said, it's one of the fundamental traits of the genre.

Dark Death Metal is another one.

What pray tell is "dark" death metal?


I'm guessing it specifies death metal that is dark and atmospheric as opposed to clinical and technically focused. Of course there are tech bands who are dark and have the right feeling that could be considered dark death metal. The point is that death and black metal are such vague umbrella terms that you need to specify what particular sound you want.

Yeah, I don't know why anyone would get hung up on it. If I asked someone for 'dark death metal' recommendations at the very least they'd be fairly sure pointing me towards In Flames and Arch Enemy is not going to do much for me.

But death metal is dark by its very nature. I've nothing against the use of such terms just this one puzzles me.

There's a major difference between the atmospheres of Dead Congregation and Necrophagist. I wouldn't say there's anything dark about the latter's style of DM at all.

Its hardly sunshine and lolipops though! I get what you mean but dark as a descriptive term for some DM just seems odd to me.

Would 'Wiegedood - De Doden Hebben het Goed' fit into this category?
Immersive stuff...

I've waited for well over 5 years for an excuse to post that video in some kind of context.

Moving back on topic, that Wiegedood album is great stuff, I agree, and the last Sear Bliss was indeed poor.

Really digging this Kataxu. Very nice synths and keys, right to the fore. Will be listening to more from this thread.

Hopefully that Kataxu stuff is still available as it is really good.

Damn, nobody mentioned Polish Evilfeast?
This band puts all the ones mentioned so far to shame (with the exception of Sear Bliss).
Might be up to personal taste, but here's a song to prove it nonetheless:
