    Dummi Borgir and Dark Fortress. Same meaning, lol

    September 2009
  • vaud_kaa

    About the subsubsubgenres.. I guess sometimes it's more descriptive, don't you think? I mean, "symphonic black metal" does mean something, and IMHO it does tell a diffference between this and, e.g., "extreme dark viking black metal" ;) I think people in general love to label stuff and why remove this pleasure?

    September 2009
  • JohnBurbach

    Anyone wanna help me out with some recommendations? I'm looking for some artists with extremely high-pitched vocals like Chthonic or Anthelion.

  • backslashh

    Good Sympho BM: Capitollium, Limbonic Art, Bal-Sagoth, Dimmu(old), Cor Scorpii, Emperor, Finnugor, Hecate Enthroned, Mirrorthrone(to some extent), Obsidian Gate(very underrated band from Germany), Summoning...

    July 2009
  • StarCoreA

    This is the subgenre that almost caused me to turn my back on bm completely when I first heard it.

    June 2009
  • Yourslut

    No they arent you seem to be a supernoob

    June 2009

    In 94 Cradle Of Filth was lot better than other bm acts too.

    June 2009
  • xxUrielxx

    Demon burgers first 3 albums were Symphonic BM. And Arcturus is good even without playing black metal. Just listen to The Sham Mirrors its fucking amazing.

    June 2009
  • MetalPyro876

    in 94, Dani wasn't a douche. He was friends with Mayhem, Emperor, Dark Throne. BUt then he said F.U. and sold out and played crap music

    June 2009
  • Tiriam

    whats about Stormlord? thats great symphonic black metal =D

    May 2009
  • darkmanv5

    Cradle of Filth is not BM, its extreme gothic metal.

    May 2009
  • damo_borgir

    well old school COF new stuff isnt really symphonic BM, but the old stuff is

    April 2009
  • cuervopagano

    Dimmu Borgir's "Stormblast" is a fine example of Symphonic Black Metal. Everybody mention Arcturus as Symphonic Black Metal although they don't play it anymore since "Aspera hiems symfonia", it's the same wit Dimmu Borgir and COF.
