    Every band I listed uses synths to some extent, especially on the albums I listed.

    Well I'm not sure what he's looking for, whether it be full-blown symphonic black metal or atmospheric black metal with use of synths.

    I'm pretty sure he wants the latter, judging by the bands he named in his post.

    Speaking of synths, has anyone heard of Kataxu? Hunger of Elements is a superb symphonic/atmospheric BM album.


    Fucking awesome album indeed.

    Kataxu is pretty good, but I'm not a big fan of that style.

    more atmospheric/ambient(but not entirely--Alatyr is probably the most atmospheric that I listen to but theyre good) some can use synths and be amazing, like Windir or not like any other bands, but I didnt see that in any of ur bands Zeph, sure I myspaced songs off their albums but if they didnt have it other wouldnt I'd bet on

    I listened to Hunger of Elements once and I thought it was decent once I stopped trying to listen to the guitars and just listened to the synths.

    I've only heard Roots Thunder. I disliked it for years, but I finally played it again I think some time this past winter and enjoyed it a fair bit. I think I'll play it after The Red In The Sky Is Ours if I remember.

    Any thoughts on Katharsis? Listening to a few tracks on last.fm and they aren't too bad. Might pick up 'VVorldVVithoutEnd' but wanted to get a general impression of how well their music holds up.

    VVorldVVithoutEnd is excellent fucked-up Darkthrone style black metal with raucous vocals and twisted "upside-down" sounding riff structures. GREAT lyrics too...awesome album, highly recommended!
