Since none of those sounds anything alike, here are a few to try:

Obtained Enslavement -- Witchcraft and Soulblight IMO, the epitome of symphonic black done correctly

Abigor -- any early album..might want to start with Nacthymnen From the Twilight kingdom.

Sigh (Jap) -- Strange uses of symphonic elements that works well. See also Chthonic

i have a few bands you could check out.

Bishop of Hexen - honestly only heard the newest, but it's great!

Vesperian Sorrow - whole discog is great!(underrated i think)

i will also second the Obtained Enslavement recommendation.

Obsidian Gate - crazy symph bm where they used 2 keyboardists(check out colossal christhunt)

In Lingua Mortua - i'd recommend their first full length since the newest borders on avante garde craziness.


no youtube links sorry, i'm lazy.

I'll third Obtained Enslavement's Witchcraft and Soulblight both excellent albums also try
Limbonic Art's Moon in Scorpio
Dimmu Borgir's Enthroned Darkness Triumphant
Sear Bliss's Forsaken Symphony & An Arcane Odyssey they are not strictly symphonic but they use wind instruments on their songs.

None of those sound alike either...
Obtained Enslavement is (awesome, but) far more atmospheric, Abigor is far more melodic, and Sigh is far more Avant Garde.

Lets start with basics- I'll throw Emperor's In the Nightside Eclipse and Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk out there.

Also be sure to check out Limbonic Art's In Abhorrence Dementia and Legacy of Evil.

Symphonic black metal? It seems like threads for this come up every other day.
