41 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

This is not DSBM. It's not Black metal. It's not even Metal.

This is insulting to the genre. Take this out

They put a lot of pain, despair, regret, and loneliness into their songs.

I think this band is from Australia, if I'm not wrong and there songs are total great for DSBM. Thumps Up~

Actually, HE is from Russia. And he is also the master behind "Skyforest", his newest project. Is also known as 'Blurry Lights'. Anyway,very powerful, depressing, and beautiful all in one package. For a solo artist, his work is quite impressive. Recommend highly for anyone into this genre, although it would be accurate to refer to this as atmospheric b.m. than DSBM, I think.

I can't even express how much I love this band. If more people knew about them, they would totally be #1, or at least, the top 5 best dsbm bands. They're incredible.

Should be number one! This band is absolutely amazing! Such a depressing band!

Very good band. But since they have no longer publised any other, they are not in the first places. I hope they do someday.

53 Ars Diavoli
54 Moon

Australian dsbm band, not so well known. The sound is very similar to xastur's. The atmospere they create is really cold and empty, just really great. Check moon- sabbat.

55 Swallow the Sun Swallow the Sun Swallow the Sun is a Finnish melodic death/doom metal band. They have a melodic, atmospheric doom metal sound.
56 Sykelig Englen

A British project, more taking influence from Silencer, Lifelover and Shining than other DSBM acts.. Genre: Suicidal Misanthropic Art! Only demo tapes exist at the minute but an 11 track album will be released this year!

Absolutely amazing! Anti Human Pro Nature! True Misanthropic music

Heretoir aren't strictly DSBM, though I'd highly recommend giving them a listen. The droning guitar riffs are interesting with a shoegaze influence, and the vocals will evoke sorrow as nothing else has before.
