So I rediscovered how much I love Thy Light and Swallow the Sun recently and along with that I rediscovered my frustration with Thy Light only having a demo out...
Along with that I've been listening to Emperor and Dimmu (Death Cult Armageddon & For All Tid) cuz I love me some Symphy Black Metal
More along the Lines of Thy Light, however, I've also gotten into Woods of Desolation. They don't have symphonic elements but something about them really reminds me of minor/simple symphonic elements. By minor/simple I mean what I refer to simply as "Symphy Keys". You know what I mean - Those kind of Emperorish keys rather than complicated/full/realistic orchestral things like in Dimmu's DCA.
Thy Light - "I Am the Bitter Taste of Gall" is a near perfect example of the kind of symphy keys I want http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIvWRv_ZSHk
Morker - Dyster Tid is another pretty good example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSK3VKeu ... ure=relmfu
however more realistic symphonic elements are welcome too, I just like the Symphy Keys a lil more most of the time.
Anyways, What I'm looking for is essentially DSBM similar to Thy Light. Depressive, symphy Keys, slow/slowish, kinda simple, preferably black metal.
Black/Doom, Death/Doom, Funeral Doom etc is cool too.

Also, that vocal recording pic confirmed what I suspected: SLK records shirtless in a sweaty caveman-like delirium. You can almost hear the man stink in the recordings.
