Noir by Callisto, the most underappreciated post-metal album and post-metal band of all time (even though track one is mislabeled; it should be "Wormwood")
Morketsvind - Winter Etude
Anneke van Giersbergen - Hurricane (there's a music video, but it's hardly mind-blowing. You'll be okay just giving it a listen)

First of all, I'm a bit of a sucker for songs that start minimalistic and build up, and the execution here is flawless.

Secondly, the bare soundscape made me think that this was a COVID album (The Darkest Skies Are The Brightest) produced with a skeleton crew. Turns out it isn't - it's just that van Giersbergen originally didn't intend to publish the songs. Either way, I think sounds just real. Music that was created, not manufactured.

Thirdly, this particular song itself. You can interpret the lyrics however you like, but having had a couple of rough years and faced uncertainty on different levels (possibly ongoing), this strikes a chord somewhere pretty deep in me.
If anyone can recommend bands like Hocico or FGFC820 (EBM / Dark Electro / Aggrotech) to me, I'd really appreciate it.

I know I could just look at a list of similar artists on Spotify, for example, but I'd love to see some recommendations from real people familiar with the genre.

Thanks in advance!
Amorphis - "Tales from the Thousand Lakes"

This is the version I watched as a kid on satellite TV. As it was in French and without subtitles I didn't understand anything, so I just created my own stories for it.
