Cathedral's Forest of Equilibrium. You will never hear a recording that captures wretched anguish any better than this one.

Check out Classica by Novembre. Nothing real groundbreaking, but if you like the afore mentioned bands I think you'll like this.

... so are we just looking for simply dark and doomy bands here, or the bands you really need to keep you from offing yourself? Because Novembre, Sentenced, and especially Nevermore don't strike me as all that sad or depressing...that Cathedral album kept me from killing myself back in 93 or so, so I'm not talking music that you listen to to enjoy when I talk about 'sad and depressing'...

"Mourner's Lament" from Candlemass' "Nightfall" album.

"Suspended In Dusk" by Type O Negative is pretty damn miserable, too..

yes,candlemass can create a gloomy atmosphere...

also try some In the woods... (the late works,they aren't very very dark,but they have a unique and at some parts sad atmosphere),green Carnation and Dolorian...

Empyrium - Songs Of Moors & Misty Fields

[edit]
Well...plus Daylight Dies!
...and October Tide, but this would be related to Katatonia

EverEve

check the first 2 albums "seasons" and "stormbirds" if you like the more gothic elements, if you like to listen to more samples going into the ebm-scene (not really, but it tends), check the newer releases.

theatre of tragedy (but i think you know them already)

I also have Cosmis Genesis and love it, I'm going to get Ödemarken's Son soon, Morningrise said it's a lot better than Cosmic Genesis.

Two masterpieces are missing:
Bethlehem-S.U.I.Z.I.D

Vinterland-Welcome My last Chapter



These two are definitely the most anguished and melancholic sounds I've ever heard from a recording. Almost disturbing actually.....
