gothenburg never really got to me. i like Dark Tranquillity, but that's about it.

Novembre is pure genius.

Sorry for the wait in replying. Great recommendations guys. Weeping, I thought Lifelover was great. Silencer was truly different, I don't think I would have been as shocked if it wasn't for the footage of Begotten in the video that just seemed to fit so well. I need to check out that movie. I looked up the lead man of that too, interesting rumors surrounding him. I found your other black metal suggestions to be awesome as well. I've always heard of Gorgoroth, but didn't much care to check it out. I've heard Ulver before. I love all the melodic touches. I think I will check out more when in "that" mood. It's definitely a genre that's growing on me, thanks to you of course. The doom metal was great. I fell in loved with Footprints. Absolutely fantastic.

Down7ill, I knew most of the bands you posted, but thanks for suggesting some solid sludge metal. It's usually a genre that's hit or miss for me. Glad to know you're a lover of melodic death metal; it's my favorite genre. Explosions in the Sky is great post-rock as well.

I guess I should post some music now. Not all of it will be metal and I'll try to stay on topic for the sake of the thread for now.

The Misshapen Stead - Agalloch
First off, Agalloch is an American black metal folk band. It's a rather atmospheric band. The lyrics, I've heard, are an acquired taste though I did not have a problem with this. This song, however, is instrumental but I think it's powerful at sending the emotions it wants to convey. Also, I'll link my favorite song by them (which have vocals) for those that want to give them a chance: Black Lake Nidstang.

If there is one artist I love, it's Buckethead. He's a master at almost anything he does and he plays a wide variety of genres on his guitar. Of course, it is all instrumental, so if you're wanting vocals, sorry once again:
Watching The Boats with my Dad - Buckethead.
This song just feels like one you would recall memories with. In my opinion, it's very sad, yet slightly happy. Good music to listen to in the dead of night at times.

I don't know how many of you have ever followed Celtic Frost. Honestly, I don't care much for the band, but I found their comeback album a few years back to be unlike anything I'd ever heard. It's dark, aggressive, heavy, all without really falling into any specific metal sub-genre. I'd say it has hints of doom, black, atmospheric, dark, etc metal. My favorite song is "Ground" but, for the sake of the topic, I will link my second favorite song from the album, Monotheist: Obscured.

I'm pretty sure most of you metalheads have heard of In Flames. Their old stuff was classic, but I like a bit of their new music. I didn't feel like linking to the music video for some reason but this song is off their second newest album which was not too bad I like to think: Come Clarity - In Flames. If you want to check out their older stuff, which is nice, this is a good song as well: Square Nothing.

Insomnium is one of my favorite melodic death metal bands. I'll just have to recommend two songs simply because I like it that much.
In the Groves of Death - Insomnium - An epic track I like to say, at least with the length and progress of it.
Weighted Down with Sorrow - Insomnium - Shorter, but a personal favorite from their latest album.

This next band, Joy Division, isn't close to metal. More like classic new wave but, not the kind of new wave that was overly mainstream. The lead singer killed himself, but before hand he wrote this song which seems to encapsulate his feelings. I love the lyrics, they are powerful through mere description of the environment: Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division.

I know I mentioned Katatonia earlier, but I didn't link a song.
Journey Through Pressure - Katatonia
It's not the best song on the album, but it is the ending track and when I was walking in the middle of the night to this album and then this song hit me...as a finisher it is powerful. Hell it's powerful in it's own right. I think alot of us could relate to this at the end of each of our days. Other songs I recommend are Unfurl and Dissolving Bonds.

Umm let's see Fade to Black by Metallica...but that's already been mentioned...

I already mentioned Nine Inch Nails, and they are a fairly popular band, but I find this instrumental, obscure track to be Trent's strongest song in terms of despair. I can't recall how many nights I layed awake listening to this:
Leaving Hope - Nine Inch Nails

I think I'll stop for now. I'll post again with more songs later.

Wow. I was surprised to see Peste Noire, and Lifelover mentioned on this forum.

I've been into all forms of black metal for about 15 years. The depressive black metal is certainly helpful when I am in a major depressive state, though I pretty much listen to it even when I feel fine.

I could list hundreds of bands, but in the depressive bm genre in particular, I'd say my favorite bands are Velvet Cacoon, Paysage d'Hiver, Jammerskrik, Ildjarn, Chronaexus, Wold, all of the Black Twilight Circle bands like Arizmenda, Volahn, and Ashdautas.

Of course, Burzum, in particular the Hvis Lyset Tar Oss album, which in my opinion is probably the most responsible album for the whole d bm genre.

Even though I don't consider Darkthrone to be a d bm band, they are my favorite bm band, hands down. I've been a Darkthrone fan for along time.

Outside of the depressive black metal stuff, Neurosis is my favorite band in general. Just so intense and otherworldly.

As mentioned earlier, old Katatonia is great depressive music, in particular Brave Murder Day.

It's cool to see people here with a similar taste in music.

When I first saw the name of this thread, I immediatelly thought of Joy Division.
Ever since I first heard their music, it has felt quite melancholic to me. And whenever I've felt melancholic myself, I've found some comfort in Joy Division.

Definitely. I linked "Love Will Tears Us Apart" earlier in this thread. The lead singer's story and the overall music captures the essence of melancholy perfectly.

Our Hell - Emily Haines & the Soft Skeleton

Emily Haines is just an amazing person. And this song pretty much made me cry whenever I heard it.
