Hello. I generally listen to a lot of symphonic black/death metal witch incorporate tons of keyboards. However, songs that are completely keyboard driven from start to finish are rare.

A good example of what I am looking for:

The keyboards dominate these songs from start to finish... Any good recommendations? Thank you.

Thanks everyone! Yes Dimmu happens to be my favorite band actually. Their album "Enthrone Darkness Triumphant" is my favorite, and it left me wanting for more of that style.

Does anyone know a symphonic/melodic band that employ high-pitch bells like the ones I linked?

Cradle of Filth has a few, but not with continuous keyboards from start to end, I'm afraid:

Yes this is perfect actually, despite dani's vocals... Its ok if the keyboards are not continuous but songs like this one are special.

No mention of Summoning? Better get yourself some Summoning:

Awesome stuff

I also found this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coKVFGTMsMw

Interesting use of bells that create a superb melodic feeling.

I hate to burst your bubble (or I'm glad to provide you with more insight), but the instrument you're hearing isn't bells. If anything, it's a celesta or a glockenspiel or (more likely) an electronic keyboard imitating those instruments.

Yes obviously they are not real bells, and they are played using a synthesizer, which is what im looking for.

The discussion begins and ends with Bal-Sagoth, the kings of keyboard-slathered black metal. Battle Magic and The Power Cosmic are their most representative albums, in my opinion.

They aren't fake bells either. The glockenspiel is not a bell nor does it resemble one.

But here's a song that does have a bell sound (albeit briefly at the beginning and middle). Limbonic Art was mentioned already, but this song has a bell sounding.

Hey I know you like Dimmu Borgir and especially the synthesized sound used on Entrance from E.D.T.

Do you know this song? https://youtu.be/xmODy1p1qY4
It's a not very well known song from, I think, an instrumental sideproject by Shagrath and a female vocalist. But it does utilise the exact same bell/glockenspiel/whatever sound used in Entrance.

It's hilarious that I was listening to that song the same moment I read your post for the first time :P

Yeah this is magical. I love it. Not really metal, but still...

I think Tidfall is what you are looking for. Very reminiscent of early Dimmu Borgir:

Good stuff, the raw production really helps the music on this one rather than ruin it.
