Death metal that relies heavily on creating a dark, ominous and sometimes melancholic atmosphere. Use of keyboards is common, as well as incorporating elements of doom metal, dark ambient and/or black metal. Nocturnus, Timeghoul, The Chasm, Shub Niggurath, Lykathea Aflame, and Seidr are all great examples of atmospheric death metal.
