Best DSBM Bands

41 Abyssic Hate

One of the earliest and still one of the best Depressive Black Metal bands of all times. It's a shame that Abyssic Hate now buried under modern DSBM garbage

They are very innovative, showing that anger and sadness can be effectively combined into a sorrowful rage

They are not a very popular group but they make very good music, you must check them out.

They are so creative...needs more attention - Ananya

42 Hopeless

44 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

This genre makes my ears bleed

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.

49 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

50 Exiled From Light

The first album is a masterpiece. The second album is perhaps too long and repetitive but I still like to listen it through but the real good stuff are the last three songs.

51 Sterbend

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

Great band for DSBM

52 Through the Pain
53 Lost Inside

You can feel the sadness, this band is so good

Amazing band

Why are they so low? they should be in the top ten!

How is it that nobody has bothered to comment on these guys. They've been around since '92 and practically layed the groundwork for this type of music. Listen to the second and third albums. His vocals are more psychotic than anything I've ever heard. Even more so than Nattramn, Sterbend, or I'm In A Coffin.

59 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.

60 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.
