I figured there might be some (potential) fans of this electronic sub-genre here, excluding any (bedroom) Black Metal projects with the possible exception of Neptune Towers, which is great and concentrating on quality material. If anyone has recommendations and/or is interested in discussing this, I am talking about bands/projects such as:

ENDVRA


Lustmord


raison d'tre


Well, I hope you get the idea. I am also thinking of old school artists such as Tangerine Dream and early Brian Eno and stuff with more drone in them such as Troum, which is a very interesting project. Post about your favourites, if you have any.

Note: This list is obviously not exclusively populated by Ambient artists and does not reflect my personal favourites in the genre, although it includes some of them. It has been compiled as a point of reference to the tastes of all forum members that have contributed to this thread. It should be noted that it contains a slight Industrial and Black Metal bias.

First two Popol Vuh albums are pretty much all I need in this genre, as both are absolutely wonderful. After those two albums they sort of went in a different, more folky direction. I've probably said it before, but Popol Vuh is the only band I've ever heard that legitimately sounds "magical" to me.

Just look at these filthy, filthy hippies.

i'm sure it doesn't fit in your style parameters, but Lurker Of Chalice's self-titled album is a masterpiece.

Maybe they are a little too much industrial, but I call Megaptera.

Cold Meat, but I reckon shipping from Sweden to Australia is quite expensive. Try looking for Australian ambient/industrial distros maybe.

Have yet to check this project out. His other dark ambient group Ravens Bane is some pretty immense stuff.

Big fan of stuff from the 60's/70's like Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Taj Mahal Travellers, Univers Zero but that's only loosely connected to "dark ambient" and I'll admit I don't know a lot about this genre but I really do like Tenhornedbeast, New Risen Throne, Fear Falls Burning (in my opinion, the FFB/Nada collaboration is a masterpiece!!), Sleep Research Facility...... I'm sure I'm forgetting more....... I really like A Silhouette In Splinters by Leviathan, that might actually be my favorite LP from him........

I also really like stuff like Fripp & Eno's Evening Star LP, Nurse With Wounds Soliloquy For Lillith, etc......

I guess in short I like a lot of ambient music and I like when it has this creepy dark vibe but it's not essential, I'd just as soon listen to The Stars Of The Lid or mid period Growing or whatever..........

Also really dig fucking Locrian (The Crystal World is one of my favorite records to come out in the last few years) and Horseback........

Anything by Henrik Nordvargr is worth your time. I'm a fan of Sleep Research Facility, and Tenhornedbeast. Haven't got the latest album though.

Does Emit count here? Those first bunch of demo tapes from 2000-2002 or so were absolutely amazing. The rest is good too, but those have a special place for me. The atmosphere is so thick you could choke on it.

Oh, that crazy Nordvargr!! I have a few of his albums too....... including that "the Walls Are Closing In" cassette that I haven't listened to yet as it's a total pain in the ass to listen to cassettes these days........ I really like that Helvete CD........
