So I saw The Gathering perform a 25th anniversary set today.
The more i think about it the more i realize how much i liked it.

However i also realized that I need more music in their general style. No female fronted "gothic" metal however. Something eclectic and diverse. Mid era Anathema also kind of goes for a similar goal but i do not really know much more.
I do not really need exact clones as much as something with a focus on atmosphere. I am aware of the most obvious recommendations like Katatonia or Amorphis but i generally seek something less heavy and more dynamic. However if you think that a fairly different sounding band on the surface but actually goes for a similair end result emotionally i am all for it.

Cheers yo

I'd say Grey Skies Fallen but their albums (except the one I linked) often cross into death/doom territory in a Novembre type of sound. Worth a shot, me thinks. The one in the link is much more rock oriented.

Never gave The Gathering a try. But I'm aware that they sound something like later Anathema or Katatonia. If that's what you're looking for then Green Carnation might be exactly the thing. Although some of the songs on their later albums dabble into their earlier death/doom riffing there's no growling.





Also the followings:

Later Autumnblaze.





ShamRain. Specifically the first three albums and Deeper into the Night EP.





Antimatter.

I dig the recommendations. I already knew antimatter.
These bands are a bit too... autumnal sounding. Maybe something a bit more 4AD and/or dynamic sounding?
Shoegaze/postrock/etc elements are fine too.
