21 Shade Empire

Should be much higher. Omega Arcane is a masterpiece!

Omega Arcane is incredible!

This band is just too awesome. My top 1

22 Morgul

Underrated to say the least, they create aura that entrances. Check out "The Horror Grandeur"

They have a unique style of symphonic black metal

23 Septicflesh Septicflesh

26 Abigail Williams Abigail Williams

28 Mystic Circle
29 Crematory

This is not a black metal at all! - Narsilion

They are simply great, tears of time, the fallen, fly...

30 Diabolus Arcanium

An emerging symphonic metal act from India!

31 Cosmic Infusion
32 Bal-Sagoth

This list is wrong along with many others. The Best symphonic black metal band of all time is Bal-Sagoth!

I agree bal-sagoth is very underrated and very unique in their sound my list would be bal-sagoth,dimmu borgir, cradle of filth, dark tranquility.

33 Sinphonicon
34 Children of Bodom Children of Bodom Children Of Bodom is a melodic death metal band from Espoo, Finland. Formed in 1993, the group currently consists of Alexi Laiho, Janne Wirman, Henkka Seppälä, Jaska Raatikainen and Daniel Freyberg.

CoB is not Black metal, but Power/Death Metal

35 Rotting Christ Rotting Christ Rotting Christ is a Greek extreme metal band formed in 1987. They are noted for being one of the first black metal bands within this region, as well as a premier act within the European underground metal scene.
36 Ceremonial Castings

They should be a must listen to for every black metal, doom metal, etc. Fan. Not only talented, but cool guys, GREAT live. They live, eat, breathe music. Do their own mixing/mastering. Immortal Black Art, so many great songs, that in my humble opinion best cd. But many like Salem 1692.

37 Vaakevandring
38 Within Temptation Within Temptation Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.

Like about Nightwish, Within is not black...

39 Troll
40 Advent Sorrow

That's the band you're searching! Deep and dark growls!

Best Growls ever. Look up "Like A Moth To The Flame"
