Discuss the music that you love to hear.
I've been listening to what I guess is called "dark synthwave" a bit in the last couple years. For the synth sounds and weird psuedo-80's-nostalgia sci-fi I like it. But ironically a lot of this type of music feels too happy and light. Moris Blak has a good aggressive vibe, with more of a bass-heavy minimal feel than other artists in the genre. Gost and Pertubator are kinda interesting. Even Gary Numan's recent work appeals to me. I'd like to find more aggressive dark minimal synth stuff. If anyone has artist recommendations, I'd love to explore your suggestions.
martial canterel, xeno & oaklander, buzz kull, qual, boy harsher, odinis odonis? feels like every year we get new great darkwave / postpunk bands, good time to enjoy it!
You might be in interested in Cold Wave from 1980s from France and Belgium.

A lot of great leads here, I’m going through it all. Emptyset sounds timeless and really appeals to my textural senses. Haxan Cloak is a great ambient take on this. But yeah Moaan Exis. I’ve been checking out their stuff today and this is what my ears have been craving.
Skinny Puppy- Too Dark Park
Good deals with: Eremitalf, ben_hex, matttech, Elevator Sound

Loving the suggestions so far, I only knew a few of them. Here's something a bit different, still in the "aggressive synth" category though. He seems to be pretty unknown (anyone here heard of him?), I rarely if ever see anything about him online or otherwise. But I was lucky enough to see him live (15 years ago?), it was one of the finest live shows of my life. I can especially recommend the whole Oxydes album, this is one track from it:
Indeed! I also saw them live several years ago!
Glad to hear that!spacenoodle wrote: ↑Fri May 13, 2022 2:23 pm A lot of great leads here, I’m going through it all. Emptyset sounds timeless and really appeals to my textural senses.

Check out HORSKH too.
They’re similar, but with more vocals.
I thank you too for these suggestions because I didn’t know anyone of them but Coil, who is one of my all-time favorites.
I’d add Nurse with Wound and Muslimgauze to this list. Although they're less ambient.
then i saw the title of this thread my mind went to some dark trance

In recent years I've gotten into Clark. I enjoy his latter productions more than his early work. I don't know if this is aggressive enough but all of these tracks have a dark edge that I enjoy. Rival Consoles also has an edge to his tracks I enjoy. Anyway I highly recommend Clark and Death Peak from Chris Clark.
It's been a long time since someone wrote a really good book in jail.
... that calm aggressiveness kind though, terrific album

here's a couple of old favorites of mine
Hadn't heard this one before, very nice! I see it's on the Ant Zen label, generally a good place to look for this style of music.
Also check the related label, Fich Art http://www.fich-art.com/

Shades (Alix Perez + EPROM) look no further than these two for a beautiful fusion of half-time DNB/neurohop/trap/UK Bass with the attitude of hiphop and doom/drone guitar music all in one. I think EPROM is keen on his Noise Engineering modules

Been listening to Blush Response and Phase Fatale lately. When these guys are recording and contemplating how much distortion to use, the answer is yes!!!!
