Try and find some Tenhi, they're like, really dark, depressive folk. I'll see if I can find a link to their music anywhere...they're pretty obscure.

[EDIT:] Here ya go, XD! Tenhi, it's too good...

If you can get past the outer-space brit vocals, then i'd recommend Death In June.


may not be your thing, but ya never know until you try it
My dreams are all dead and buried...
Sometimes I wish the sun would just explode...
If God comes and calls me to his kingdom,
I'll take all you sons o' bitches when I go!

I highly recommend Martin Grech, amazing stuff.

I forgot about him. He is pretty talented.

Well im here beacuse im actually looking for the same kind of acoustic stuff.

Firstly i would recomend Opeth acoustic songs/ sections. They are all excelent and very touching when playing. really nice stuff. for instance, you have benighted or harvest.

Dream theater has some nice acoustic sections too... Carpe diem of A change of seasons its perfect to play on a rainy night...

a good drop c songs ( i dont know many either) are good to play to. Down has some good stuff, like where im going. southern isolation has a few too

I am equally looking for more agressive acoustic stuff. its hard to explain, but its like powerfull harpegios or fingerpicking that put you in almost an headbang mode (XD)

I have the Asturias legend in my thaughts now. tho its not metal or anything, its a fast and powerfull song.

If you guys know anything similiar, please post, with the host permition of course.
