Ambient Black Metal
Ambient black metal is a fusion genre that combines elements of black metal and ambient music. It often incorporates ambient based riffs through synthesizers, guitars, and bass, either blast beats or simple minimalist drumming, and faded, often unintelligible shrieked vocals. The Norwegian artist Varg Vikernes with his project Burzum is considered a pioneer of black ambient, having created the genre with the albums Hvis lyset tar oss and Filosofem which also influenced many artists in the genre.
