Anybody got some recommendations for depressive death/doom?
Was thinking like this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJUGK3Em5R4 but possibly with more distant/reverb vocals, can also be somewhat atmospheric or influenced by black metal as long as it stays slow and gloomy.

All other Ophis' albums are worth it, and even better than this latest one, I'd say, especially the first two full-lengths.
Treurwilg sound rather strickingly like a sludgier Ophis.
Aporya is a straighter death doom band with one album under the sleeve that shows some Ophis-like darkly aggressive edges.


But if you searching really dark stuff, influenced by BM, I recommend rather Ataraxie/Funeralium. Funeralium sounds even better than their sister-project imo.

There's a band called Aphotic that's like a less romantic early Katatonia.

A new project, hard to pingeonhole; there's doom in it for sure. It reminds of The Ruins of Beverast and Urna. Any one into complex, proggy dark doomy music should check this out:

Perhaps a bit of a strange request, but does anyone know anything that could be classified as death-doom fused with post-hardcore?

I'm wanting to say Dead in the Water is the closest to come to mind, though there is a bit of a sludge/post-metal overtone to them as well.

Some weeks ago I tried Majestic Downfall again and figured The Blood Dance is actually a cool album. It recalls early Katatonia and October Tide mixed with some black metal moments here and there without falling into the trap of becoming pseudo melodic doom/death (unlike plenty of bands that were inspired by Katatonia.) The result is something massive and riff-y that definitely has its emotionally draining aspects - the tormented vocals certainly get that job done.

Two bands

Both out of the old Dutch Scene

Etherial Winds and Sad Whisperings

I have their albums, and they basically seem to never, ever get mentioned by anyone, even though they're both high quality shit, the Etherial Winds being a little more death-y, and Sad Whisperings being a little more doomy, with a strange almost 70s vibe to them.

And, they're super heavy actually and have a great, majestic sense to them.

I knew Sad Whisperings, but Etherial Winds are new to me, thanks for the tip; it's some typical early 90ies death doom. Worth a try for history purpose at least.

Another Finnish band and I'm not sure what is the OP's definition of post-hardcore (Isis vs. Unwound) but Ever Circling Wolves seem to take influence from both desth/doom and post-metal https://youtu.be/y_n4WSwYsuU
