Looking for black metal (or hardcore, sludge, experimental or doom) bands or specific songs that have a trancey vibe to them. By this I don't mean a Trance/Psytrance crossover or necessarily any electronic at all, but a general emphasis on inducing a trance like response, whether it be through drone like repetition or psychedelic influences or whatever.

Here are some examples of what I'm looking for:

This part of a Dodecehedron song gets the vibe I'm looking for exactly; ritualistic repetition and ominous chanting.

Burzum - Dunkelheit is the most obvious example, although I'm more interested in finding newer and less familiar acts.

Not extreme metal but obvious drone choice that highlights a similar feel I'm looking for.

Anything on the psychedelic or ritualistic side of black metal would work. Avant-garde/atonal stuff is a plus

Later Swans pretty much focus around creating this feeling, an they do it wonderfully.
While they are not metal, they are still extremely dark and heavy, and worth a listen from anybody that seeks that hypnotic, ritualistic feeling in his music!

Fell Voices from the US I always thought were one of the best black metal bands to create this trance like atmosphere

On the subject of Fell Voices, which I would agree with, there's also Ash Borer.


Another suggestion would be Forest Silence. Their discography is limited, but the few tracks they've produced are phenomenal.
