15:49 - E.Mols86 Compare it to whatever you like, I still find it totally silly. My brother went to the Anime Con a few years ago normally dressed. The year after they went in costume so they fit in and didn't feel like outcasts.
15:48 - MechanisT There seems to be a recursive pattern in all this.
15:46 - !J.O.O.E.! But people make lists to show off ;)
15:44 - E.Mols86 That's a strange comparison. Cosplay isn't so much about discussing your favourite anime movie/show, but rather about dressing up like your favourite character and showing off your costume. So it's totally different.
15:38 - Syk EMo - same could be said for your movie/TV/black/doom discussions. just a way to meet like-mindeds, innit? surround self with safe satisfaction, maybe expan 2 somethin' new
Where the hell is Agalloch? The Mantle has plenty of great songs for this list, like Odal, The Lodge or The Hawthorne Passage. Or The Misshapen Steed (Pale Folklore), which is an amazing song. Furthermore:
Akelei - Een Droom in 6/8 (De Zwaarte van het Doorstane)
Anathema - ...Alone (The Silent Enigma)
Dark Tranquillity - Ex Nihilo (Damage Done)
Lake Of Tears - Otherwheres (Forever Autumn)
Opeth - For Absent Friends (Deliverance) & Silhouette (Orchid) (better than the two Opeth songs you've listed in my opinion)
Saturnus - Lament For This Treacherous World (Paradise Belongs To You)
Summoning - Wyrmvater Glaurung (Dol Guldur)
Tiamat - Planets (Wildhoney)
