More and more we see black metal bands merging their sounds with a really "ambient" approach. Was wondering if anyone here knows a few of those bands.

Most known and talented bands include :

Nocternity (nothing short of AMAZING albums)
Vinterriket (he's got maybe too many albums but he's really good, and he joined Nocternity as keys player)
Paysage d'Hiver (great raw ambiance and some vinterriket styled keys passage)

Went through a big phase of ambient black metal and is still a favourite for that unbeatable hypnotic atmosphere.

I've yet to hear a Velvet Cacoon beater but In Vino Veritas and Marblebog are a couple of pretty good virtual clones, not to mention Wrath of the Weak's first album before he abandoned black metal.

One of the most brilliant ambient black metal bands I've come across has got to be Astral Luminous. They have only released one album consisting of four songs so far, but I can already tell that they are fantastic. If you want to listen to them, I took the liberty of uploading the songs to DailyMotion (Lunaric Tide, Astral Luminous, Binaural Vibrancy, Cosmic Dream). I am already waiting in eager anticipation for their next album.

Look no further than Trist (Germany). Listen to the full 'Hin' song from his album 'Hin Fort' and you'll know which is the best ambient black metal band. That track will space the fuck out of you.

Although the ambient black metal buzz seems to be dying down I still love it as a black metal subgenre when done well. Nice to see Nocternity mentioned first! Anyone else here like Vhernen? Grimlair? Nae'Blis? Evilfeast? All good stuff :3

I'm clearly doing this whole black metal thing backwards if I'm only just sitting down to listen to Forest Silence. It's been a long time since I've heard an album that epitomises the wintery sound of black metal the way Philosophy of Winter does. I really need to stop ignoring bands with silly, kitsch names. It's nice to hear a band who know how to use synths effectively, even if the album does rarely move out of the mid-paced aesthetic.

How about ambient projects by metal bands/musicians? Suuri Shamaani by the members of Beherit is excellent.

I dunno man, I listened to Hin/Fort a couple times a few weeks ago and had a lot of trouble getting into it. Although to be totally honest Fort is one of the creepiest albums I've ever listened to.

Yeah it is well done. That's the main idea of that album. Make you get into atmosphere. The Axis of Perdition is another band that creeps you out. Listen to the album 'Urfe' by them.

Just found a gem of a band. Atmospheric black metal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CM0LAxIsLTM

Velnias released a new EP last year and it's very well done! I love these guys. More atmospheric than ambient though.

This thread died on the first page imo... Right in the minute when someone said "Lurker Of Chalice".

Call me a fanboy or whatever... It just doesn't get better than that fantastic album.

there are many many bands that are better than what Lurker of Chalice has produced. Not saying that LoC is bad, but still alot of bands out there deserves more credit than they get.

http://youtu.be/8J0-Z3vi0xg is one of them.

The difference is that the atmosphere of LoC was truly unique. I fail to see such a calm yet eerie as hell atmosphere, it's almost elegant at times. Music for the ghosts. Also, the bass son that album is one of the best I've heard ever.

Different people with different opinion, in my opinion. LoC is brilliant though, one of the best in the genre hands down. Xasthur comes close as well.

You get a +<3 for that. coz it's true and ting. "calm yet eerie" is a perfect description of that equally perfect record. It's one of those albums I physically don't understand when someone doesn't love it and don't drop to their knees in it's awesomeness.

From the land of the kangaroos comes Nekrasov, they mix black metal and ambient with noise, it's very chaotic and noisy and don't blame me if you get a headache. They released a split with Ondo a while ago, you might want to check that out.

Ooh, I don't know if I like to intentionally cause headaches to my poor head... I was born with chronic migraines.

But Lurker of Chalice is definitely worth the patience... Listen to it some more, light some candles or drink or something. They are pure magic, I can't say much more. ^^

Heheh I understand that. I enjoy Leviathan a lot though (the latest Leviathan album is pretty much LoC tbh).
Leviathan is way more Black-driven which is the huge difference since Lurker Of Chalice has very very little Black and a huge load of ambient music.

The dude is pretty talented, that's all I can say about it.

Beherit is pretty ambient to me. Demon Advance is an awesome song!

Well, there are some moments but they don't last long. The only moments were black metal is clearly a big influence is in "Piercing Where They Might" and some parts of "Granite". But yeah.. the rest... not black metal at all.

True but by the same token this isn't an ambient album either. It makes up part of the sound but it's still very structured in a conventional sense with melody, rhythm and a general memorable construction throughout etc. I don't know what it is to be honest.
