I was curious to see if anyone had any suggestions for underground, outstanding bands that are either in the symphonic/melodic, folk or industrial genre. I am really open minded as far as production quality and lyrical themes go. Some examples of bands i really enjoy are Carach Angren, Sear Bliss, Windir, Nokturnal Mortum, Gehenna, ID:vision, Dark End, Abused Majesty, Aborym, Tristwood.....I could go on.

Anyways, suggestions or help would be appreciated.

It's hard to suggest underground bands to fans of underground music because typically fans of underground music tend to know how to search for their next experience, meaning most of what we suggest you'll either already know about or won't be interested in.

Yeah..That is very true, but thats why I try to specify that i am trying to expand my collection. I'm definitely seasoned as far as my music collection goes, but i guess the point of this post was to see what other people had to offer because I'm sure that there are people out there that know about bands/artists that i don't. Lets just say that I didn't exactly mean underground, i just didnt want people suggesting stuff like cradle of filth and dimmu borgir and all those other generic bands.

Well, in that case I guess you should look into the following (if you haven't already):

Agrypnie
Cor Scorpii
Dark Fortress
Illnath
Kampfar
Pantheon I
Shade Empire
Vreid

Thanks for the suggestions. I've heard of all except Agrpnie and Kampfar. Not a fan of Illnath though.

I already made a post on here about him, but not many people seem to be feeling the need to check him out....so I'll rep him here too!

I'm really digging Dodsferd right now. He is am underground one man Black Metal project from Greece and putting out some of the best black metal that I have heard in a long time.

Hrzig is pretty good too...but he may not be your cup of tea.

In addition to what Branzig said, you should check out Moribund Cult and Frostscald Records - two labels/distros that specialize in underground black metal. Moribund features more occult/raw black metal acts while Frostscald takes on more atmospheric/melodic acts.

I live about 15 miles from Moribund Records main office! Both Dodsferd and Hrzig are signed to Moribund. It's one of my fave labels and I find it to be one of the best places to find new, influential acts.

Lucky! They've got a really sweet distro there and their roster isn't too shabby either. I recognized the names from albums I reviewed sent by Nate a while back... the only problem I had with the label in time was finding the ability to describe so many underground/blasphemous/raw/occult black metal releases.

Yeah, the building's cool, all the people that work their are really chill and super nice. I like it because they're all so down to earth there. I also got to meet Krohm while I was checking out some vinyl in their store there.

They are the kings at finding the best that the underground has to offer!

For folk, you could try Darkest Era. Their first album was out last year and was nominated in the awards here.

How about Manegarm?

Discovered them after getting a shirt by them off a deal on a website (4 for £10 - shit was so cash). Very very good Folk/Viking Metal.

My friend just turned me on to a group called Behimiron, its...interesting haha. Definitely lo-fi, like the vox's were recorded in a hallway closet with a Playschool hand held recorder lo-fi...haha. I don't know if I care for it too much, but it might be up your alley of super underground acts.

I checked out Darkest Era. Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm looking for something without clean vocals. I'm currently trying to search for something similar to draugr, garleben, or even belenos. Its been really difficult for me to find any good blogs lately, all that i come across have mostly doom/atmospheric type black metal. Not exactly my cup of tea.

Not that I know a great deal about Black metal but try Hades, Nazxul and perhaps Klabautamann or Potentiam.

Fleshgod Apocalypse is pretty badass, they are a symphonic/tech death band. Check out "The Violation" on youtube and see if you like them.
