    Ambient music is really not my forte and I would love some help here. I'm looking for some relaxing music, but that still retains a lot of darkness. I've looked around on the net and still haven't found anything that completely overwhelms me.

    Bands that I already know of: Vinterriket, Paysage D'hiver, Ildjarn, Coldworld.

    Leviathan - A Sihouette In Splinters

    The first track on the cd is my favorite ambient piece. The tracklisting on the vinyl is different. The Metal Archives listing does not reflect this yet, I'm pretty sure.

    I'm not sure. I'm inclined to believe so, but I haven't located those tracks on any other releases. Perhaps they come from the Leviathan demos with I, II, III, etc. track lists. It was a limited vinyl only release initially, so it got little attention (also because the opinion leaders on this forum don't like Leviathan). It came out on cd this year, so you don't have to pay out the ass for it on ebay anymore.

    Also, you might like some neoclassical darkwave and related stuff, e.g. Arcana, Dark Sanctuary, Dead Can Dance, Daemonia Nymphe, Elend (warning: Elend is often not very relaxing at all).

    Check out Nachtpsalm and Rat King. They both added me recently on myspace and I dig their shit.

    There's also this band called Verganglichkeit... found them in a thread a while back. They're a mid-paced ambient BM band. Their albums are up for free download on their site.
